What probably makes this mall attractive to its visitors is its size and the fact that it houses two food courts, hundreds (if not thousands) of retails shops, a well-stocked supermarket, a Duty Free outlet, restaurants, a number of movie theaters and an aquarium. Some would say, it would definitely take you an entire day to go around the entire mall. The mall is also adjacent to the Intercontinenal Hotel as well as the Expo and Convention Center making it very accessible to foreign travelers.
I got the mix kimbap where one is filled with beef bulgogi and another with tuna. I loved them both! Paul and I shared this platter and were both very pleased with it.
After lunch, Jane, Grace, Paul and I went to meet with the rest of the group.
Just a note: Be sure to bring a 4G phone (eg: iPhone, HTC, etc) as none of our lower end phones worked during the trip. It's a good thing we made use of Paul's HTC and some of our companions' iPhones to coordinate with one another. Otherwise, there's a booth at the airport that can rent you a phone during your stay.
We moved on from one zone to another. There was even an Amazon area showcasing amphibians and reptiles too. I breezed through this area too.The walk was long and there's a part where you can relax, watch a school of sardines swim around the aquarium tank while enjoying some snacks.
