    Default The World's 10 Largest Shopping Malls

    South China Mall

    Dongguan, China
    Opened: 2005
    Gross Leasable Area: 7.1 million square feet
    In the Chinese mall arms race, this facility opened a year after the Golden Resources Mall to displace it as the country's--and the world's--largest. The space includes wind mills and theme parks, plus a replica of the Arc de Triomphe.

    Golden Resources

    Beijing, China
    Opened: 2004
    Gross Leasable Area: 6 million square feet
    Not sprawling, this is a stacked-up, five-story mall. Approximately 1,000 stores, selling plenty of familiar global brands like Nike and DKNY. A truly ambitious real estate project, with new apartments and offices, surrounds the mall. A tough location outside the heart of the city has resulted in disappointing traffic from foreign tourists.

    SM Mall of Asia

    Pasay City, Philippines
    Opened: 2006
    Gross Leasable Area: 4.2 million square feet
    Includes the first Olympic-sized swimming pool and first IMAX theater in the Philippines. Spread over four buildings, customers can get around on a 20-seat tram.

    Dubai Mall

    Dubai, United Arab Emirates
    Opened: 2008
    Gross Leasable Area: 3.8 million square feet
    Shopping is done at 440,000 square foot Fashion Avenue, which houses elite and mid-level fashion names alike. An aquarium, ice rink and five-star hotel are also on hand to accommodate an expected 30 million visitors in the mall's inaugural year.

    Cevahir Istanbul

    Istanbul, Turkey
    Opened: 2005
    Gross Leasable Area: 3.8 million square feet
    Europe's largest shopping mall has a roller coaster, wave pool and several IMAX theaters.

    West Edmonton Mall

    Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
    Opened: 1981
    Gross Leasable Area: 3.8 million square feet
    The biggest in North America, the West Edmonton Mall has over 800 stores, along with attractions like a water park, skating rink, casino and rides.

    SM Megamall

    Mandaluyong City, Philippines
    Opened: 1991
    Gross Leasable Area: 3.6 million square feet
    Fun stuff includes bowling, ice skating and a 12-screen movie theater, along with traditional mall fare like arcade games. Customers can also get a haircut or see a doctor at the Manila clinic.

    Berjaya Times Square

    Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
    Opened: 2005
    Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet
    Built with an adjacent hotel and convention center. In addition to over 1,000 retail shops, the mall includes a 12-story-high roller coaster, plus a pool, skating rink and "Cosmo's World," a children's theme park.

    Beijing Mall

    Beijing, China
    Opened: 2005
    Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet
    The first real suburban mall in China, located about an hour from downtown Beijing, this center has four levels with parking for 8,000 cars, plus a man-made beach. Bootlegged DVDs of American movies are top sellers.

    SM City N. Edsa

    Quezon City, Philippines
    Opened: 1985
    Gross Leasable Area: 3 million square feet
    The first major "mega mall" built by SM Prime Holdings, which now claims three of the largest 10 in the world. It's a five-story complex that boasts over 100 retail outlets and restaurants, along with 12 cinemas, a bowling alley and skating rink. An IMAX theater could be added soon.
