The moment the beautiful Galeries Lafayette comes into view, visitors will feel like they've travelled to Europe with stunning architecture, fountains, and cobblestone roads. Walk through the wide open streets and maybe even grab a cup of coffee at one of the street-side cafes.

If you take a closer look at the long black panels found on the ground, you'll discover that these are outdoor air conditioners that blow out cool air so guests can enjoy exploring without the heat.
