Hi Yusuf,

Louvre mall has various design style and high quality, if your budget is enough, for sure you will be happy with it.
on ride side of Louvre is sunlink north, the price is much lower than louvre with various choice.
I suggest you go Louvre have a look then move to Sunlink north for purchase.

I will be glad to assist your trip, just send me confirm information once your trip schedule is confirmed.
