Mines Shopping Fair or The Mines

Mines Shopping Fair was renamed The Mines in 2010 and is located in Seri Kembangan and is about 30 minutes drive away from the city of Kuala Lumpur. This shopping mall is different from the rest of the malls in the country in that there is a canal that runs right into the complex.
