Shopping Trail: Mohamed Sultan Road

What used to be the hotspot for bars and pubs has grown up to become a hip destination for international dining and snazzy wine bars. The neighbourhood is also home to major showrooms that represent international brands. From kitchen appliances to bathroom essentials, we visited four specialty showrooms to see what they have to offer.
