Rumor has it that the owner is running low in cash and construction may not be finished anytime soon.

Vanbo Plaza is officially open, but it's only partially operating, many shops are vacant, the tall buildings are not finished, there's a lot of noise and dust from construction, dirt all over from construction trucks going in/out, not a pretty sight for a mall.

Here are some pictures I took the other day, like I mentioned before about 25% of the mall is open for business, you have to walk miles and miles of empty spaces, blocked halls, dead stairs, watch out for construction being done inside, Wal-mart the most awaited store will not open until November or later, I noticed that the mall is divided into two segments, I might be wrong, but I did not see a way to go from one side to the other without walking out to reach the other end.

Haagen Dazs, notice the unfinished wall in the upper right corner of this picture.

It's a very lame design overall, everywhere in Baoding you see the same patters, design, tiles on the floor, etc...nothing new.

And the ever watchful security, in Baoding even if you take pictures standing on the street they will come up and tell you "NO PICHURS".

Finally Walmart opened November 15th, the store was taken hostage by thousands of people trying to get good deals, I must say there was some good deals, but mainly food, the rest of the products were higher than similar products in other stores.

One thing I found different besides their dress code was the noise, inside they use loud speakers to advertise certain products or offers, just like in the street, lol.
