I'm still carrying on.

Hand dryer with lights.



We're leaving the WC and heading up to the main atrium. Lots of stores have not been opened yet but I can't doubt of their future success.



Some kitsch near escalators.



Dustbin at the main atrium.



Elevators (lifts).



At the bottom they've arranged a kind of rink for skaters. At first I thought it was an ice skate rink.



Main atrium.



Variety of European styles mixed together.



Glass...



On the opening day everyone could get a VIP-card. Queuing for it. My wife is going to fill in the form and I keep on taking photos.



Above the information counter (which is some 10 meters wide) there's a round screen showing best views of the best city - Shanghai.



Loads of flowers.



Copying Italy...



The gallery itself. I liked the way 3 persons are sitting and looking far away. Took the same pictures with my iPad and put it on Instagram, too.



I like this kinf of kitsch. Many people say it's awful but I really like the elevators. By the way, in China normaly lifts run at a much higher spedd than here in Moscow trade centers.



Wedding store.





There is some Venice higher. That's the way Chinese see it.



Piazza San Marco in person.



...



To be continued.

Exterior is weak rip off of American-New Yourkish style, interior is untasteful kitsch of Italian-american-Las Vegas style. l like some touches, but over all, it is immature design, like we use to see this kinde of works in Las Vegas. 6,5/10

What's the roof height of these towers? The spire seems quite tall.

Lifts at the Central Atrium.





Glass roof lets us immediately get transferred from the past into the future.



Getting back to the Southern part of the Mall, but we're going it through this time.



Apart from being large in terms of spce, Chinese commerce cetners can also boast their height, which is not common in Moscow.



On the upper foor there were much more stores unopened. Later there will be small salons, art exhibitions, children play rooms etc like this one:





That's what I remember when I first saw its renders.



Here something reminds me of the VEGAS, a huge mall near Moscow (Russia):



In fact, when you look down from the upper floor, you thrill a bit. Yet this is not the tallest mall. Cloud 9 has got 12 floors!



Air conditioning in lifts:



Rivals to Starbucks.



A roller site at the bottom of the Atrium, as I said before.



View upwards. It was getting dark.



We searched for a place to eat. All was either not opened or full of people.



China mobile store.



Lifts...



Closed...





Finally, we decided to have dinner at Lujiazui.



To be continued (just a little).

Das Äussere lässt das Schlimmste befürchten. Und die Befürchtungen werden im Innern vollumfänglich bestätigt. In jeder Hinsicht banal und kitschig.

Stunning interior, just stunning. I wish more pictures were posted of the insides of buildings in China.

The inside of the mall looks so cheesy with the fake European paintings.

I like the towers thought.
