Spread over the retail floors are food courts with cafés and restaurants serving everything from burgers to freshly baked pastries, noodles and seafood. 

Spot varied ocean life while walking through the wraparound tunnels of the aquarium. Watch the latest releases from Asia and Hollywood at the 21-screen cinema. Performances of live classical music are held regularly at the concert hall whose design is inspired by a wine cellar.
