Festival Waterfront Centre covers 2.8 million square feet at this airy mall—a large, two-floor semicircle with 600 stores to add to the city's retail mix. Residents flock to the giant IKEA and to ACE Hardware for barbecues and DIY essentials. The main mall has a selection of upscale international labels, anchored by a Marks and Spencer, as well as a dedicated gold souk. Opening to the western side onto the creek's promenade, it has eateries and a range of craft kiosks, so you can shop and then dine (or vice versa) in delightful waterfront surroundings.
