I’d like to visit Venice to ride on a gondola and visit St Mark’s Square. I think it’d be amazing to stroll alongside the canal and be serenaded by street musicians.
Our mall is an Amazon Rainforest mall. There are lots of beautiful plants and trees and birds such as parrots and macaws that live in the treetops and fly around freely. It is warm and sunny all the time. There are cafes and restaurants and shops in the jungle. There is a huge adventure playground for children to play on and a rock climbing wall. Some of the money that the shops make goes towards saving the real rainforest.
