Well this might be the wrong question to ask because men would be nodding in disagreement all over but hey, I am talking about shopping related to girlish stuff. I am saying shopping as in high-tech gadgets and equipment, all kinds of electrical hardware and stereos. I can see your ears pointing upwards guy. Well this and a lot more for women and men of all age are found in super malls all around the world. These large and modern malls contain nearly every kind of facility imaginable including luxury suites. This list compiles for the ten largest malls from around the world so that you can make an informed decision about your shopping destination people. Thank you very much!
10. SOUTH CHINA MALL
Located in Dongguan, the shopping center is the premises of more than 1,500 shops to approximately 6.5 million square meters of floor area. It has seven areas modeled on: Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Venice, Egypt, the Caribbean, and the California. Although the shopping center has opened its doors in 2005, it still suffers from a lack of retailers. Much of the retail space remains empty. One of the main reasons might be the fact that it is located in the suburbs which are not connected to the main areas through the transport system and thus no retailers.
9. GOLDEN RESOURCES SHOPPING MALL
8. CENTRAL WORLD
As the name indicates, the mighty complex which is a mall come office is owned by the Central Group of Bangkok. It is not only the largest shopping mall in China but it has the honor of being the largest in the whole of South East Asia and why not when it spreads over 800,000 square meters. This mall is ever larger than Hong Kong’s Ocean Terminal which is saying something so kudos to the designers and the construction engineers I might say. It has a total of eight stories which opened to a delighted public in 1990. Interestingly, it was initially called the World Trade Center.
7. THE SM MALL OF ASIA
This mall is spread over an area of 407,101 square meters, this is the largest mall in Philippines. Again, it is quite evident from the name that the particular mall is the property of SM Prime Holdings. This mall is also called MOA which simply stands for MAll Of Asia. The two main attractions of this mall might was well be the first ever IMAX theater of Philippines and its first ever Olympic sized ice skating rink (which actually spans over an area of 61 by 30 meters). Pretty impressive! It is under the management of a Chinese-Filipino business lord!
6. DREAM MALL
OK so now we come to second largest mall in the whole of South East Asia and proudly present Dream Mall at the sixth place on this list. It als has the honor of being Taiwan’s largest mall and for it being spread over 400,001 square meters, we do not doubt it for a second that it surely must be. This mall opened to general public on May 12, 2007. The cutest thing about this mall might be the fact that it has its own ferris wheel which is named after the mall. Other facilities include restaurants, theaters, gym, and various other entertainment zones.
5. WEST EDMONTON MALL
This mal is located in Canada and for this particular mall I am going to move straight to the statistics because they are mighty impressive. Say for example the mall has an average of 80000 customers every day regardless of the season or the weather. The malls parking lot has the capacity for more than 20000 vehicles and has more than 800 stores. This mall provides livelihood to more than 23000 people. It is spread over an area of 350,000 square meters approximately. Best of all is the fact that the mall has its own amusement park, they initially decided to call it fantasy land but later had to change it because of patent disputes with The Walt Disney Company.
4. CEVAHIR SHOPPING CENTER
Located in Turkey and being open to general public in October 2005, it is one of the most modern shopping malls in the world with a complete entertainment unit. It is spread over an area of 348000 square meters, and has the honor of not only being the largest in Europe but the seventh largest shopping mall in the world.This was originally supposed to be a trading complex. It has nearly 48 floors and a total of three skyscrapers. Due to many delays, the only shopping zone of this mall was completed in eight years. But never the less a dream destination for millions from around the world.
3. SM CITY NORTH EDSA
This is another one of the largest shopping malls of Philippines owned by SM Prime Holdings. It is spread over and area of 331,861 square meters and it is one of the first shopping establishments by the SM group of companies. The huge mall houses 12 theaters, a bowling alley, food court, and a garden as well. It has undergone many renovations and expansions and was opened for public in the year 1983.
2. SM MEGAMALL
Spread over an area of 331,679 square meters, it is another one of SM Prime Holdings malls with the first ever skating rinks in bridge-way. The mall has three small Meta Trade halls that can be booked for small functions and conventions. There is a bridge-way that connects the two main towers of the mal or you might want to say two buildings of the mall and the attraction lies in the several eating outlets found in that particular bridge-way.
1. BERJAYA TIME SQUARE KUALA LUMPUR SHOPPING MALL
Berjaya Times Square in Kuala Lumpur is touted to be the world’s largest single phase building covering a whooping 7.5 million square feet of space which roughly 700,000 square meters. The stats of the mall are as follows: more than 1000 retail shops, 1200 and more luxury suites, 65 restaurants, and whole of Asia’s largest theme park! It also houses Malaysia’s first ever IMAX 2D and 3D theatre.
