    i hear of people going - for different reasons - furniture shopping / getting clothes made / messages, etc. but I would definitely NOT bring your young children. it is not the most safe for them and to be honest they would probably be in your way when you shop - you really have to keep an eye out for them 100%, it's not like in HK where you can snooze a bit without worrying.

    i've gone a few times. usually, i start at the seamstress to get my new clothes done... then a little shopping, yum cha/dim sum, ending the day in a spa with a foot massage, then a 1.5 hour body massage.

    there is NO WAY i'd ever take my kids for the day.

    (1) too busy, easy to get lost
    (2) everyone smokes, even in the shopping centre
    (3) it's a long and tiring day, poor kids would be utterly exhausted
    (4) nothing for the kids to do, fairly boring for them
