Lol New South China Mall, its empty

Problem with Chinese Malls, if they're enclosed and all fancy, they're going to be expensive. I prefer, like someone has said before, the street style shopping. Chinese Malls are too 'for show' to be enjoyable, its literally only for the rich.

Malls in Malaysia are awesome, very affordable no matter where they are located. Of course their will be some money drainers, but there aren't many

Why has Japan prohibited the construction of large shopping malls?

This is just a normal suburban mall (in a developing country) near my home, and according to Forbes' 20 largest Shopping Malls in the World (2012 Ranking based on Gross Leasable Area):




1 Utama Shopping Mall --> Largest in Malaysia, 2nd largest in Southeast Asia, 4th largest in the World
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlQSJlqL23g
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1_Utama


Due to rapid mall expansions, Malaysia now has 3 prominent malls in the top 10 largest shopping malls in the world. Greater KL is now home to close to 100 shopping malls (excluding standalone hypermarkets), but just under 2/3 are just ordinary neighborhood malls.

KL ranked No. 2 in shopping

By JOSEPH KAOS Jr
[email protected]


Shopping paradise: The index has taken note of the Government’s mammoth investments in developing KLCC and Bukit Bintang as a ‘premier shopping precinct’.

PETALING JAYA: Kuala Lumpur is the second best shopping city in Asia Pacific, according to the latest Globe Shopper Index, cementing its position as a shopping paradise.

Twenty-five cities in the region were assessed under five categories shops; culture and climate; hotels and transport; affordability; and convenience.

Kuala Lumpur achieved the second highest overall score of 65 out of 100.

Only Hong Kong scored higher 68.5 edging other cities for its safety, dependable city transport and variety of shops and brands. Shanghai was third with a 63.1 score with Beijing placed fourth at 60.7.


Singapore (60.2) and Bangkok (57.1) were ranked fifth and seventh respectively. The other big cities ranked included Sydney (58.4), Tokyo (56.4) and Seoul (54.8).

“Kuala Lumpur's specific strength is its ability to combine low prices with a good range of products in a large number of stores, including three of the world's 10 biggest shopping malls,” the index report stated.

The report predicted that Kuala Lumpur had the potential to perform better in future indexes due to the Government's efforts to promote retail tourism.

It also took note of the Government's mammoth investments in developing KLCC and Bukit Bintang as a “premier shopping precinct in Malaysia”.

Bukit Bintang-KLCC Tourism Association chairman Joyce Yap welcomed the report, saying the Government's decision to make shopping a focus in the Economic Transformation Plan was a key factor.

The Globe Shopper Index was created by the Economist Intelligence Unit, which is part of the Economist Group and founded as an in-house research unit for The Economist newspaper and commissioned by Switzerland-based shopping tourism company Global Blue.

14. Secretly took some boutique photos of DIOR, Red Valentino, OMEGA and VALENTINO stores (Photos are forbidden in this mall).

Phase I of the Sandton City mall upgrade in Johannesburg, South Africa has been completed. It's now the second largest in South Africa at around 158 000 square metres if I recall correctly. Future phases include the recladding of the hotel and tower on-site, as well as the construction of two additional towers. The tallest of which is punted to become the tallest in Africa:

There is a rumor that the 3rd largest mall, SM City North EDSA will expand and will become the largest mall in the world. SM Megamall is also expanding and might surpass SM North EDSA for a short while . SM said the North EDSA expansion is still under deliberation.
SM also said they will build the largest mall in Tianjin. SM North EDSA is currently at a 482,872m2 GFA, about 2 times the size of Mall of America (not to be confused with SM Mall of Asia ). For more information about SM City North EDSA, go to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SM City North EDSA

The Dubai Mall is the largest mall in the world by total area ( 12.1 million sq ft).

...
8. Beijing Mall, 3.4 million sq. feet
I have been to Dongguan several times, and while I've wanted to, I still haven't gotten to South China Mall (if it is still a mall). It is at a really inconvenient location, it is a clear "What were they thinking?" project.

Golden Resources is at an inconvenient location too, for being in Beijing city, but at least it is reachable, and a metro comes by the end of the year. Even then it is probably not worth the bother. I was surprised to find out that this project was only about a decade old, it looks like a throwback to the Cultural Revolution. The reason people are not going there is not because it is too expensive, as the article claims, there are many much more expensive malls in Beijing and they are thriving. It is a failure because it has nothing there anyone wants, displays that in an unappealing way, and is far off from where people would go to shop.

I don't know which mall "Beijing mall" would be. I have been to most malls in Beijing (a major undertaking I tell you, and they keep coming). Golden Resources wouldn't make the top 20.
