If getting there by public transport be prepared for a bit of a hike! Once we got i there we found some of the specials were really good and others were just the same as any other shop.

Nice place to shop if you are looking for sport item. Great choice of shops and variety with indoor air-con. It was not as big as compare to other outlet place, but you can find what you want here.
