Large shopping centers offer everything from a single source. Our list of the largest shopping centers in the world is based on the amount of “gross rental space”. This is the number of square meters that the property has available for revenue generating activities such as retail, hospitality and entertainment. The construction boom in Asia, where land is cheap and labor costs low, has spawned the largest malls. Only two shopping malls on this list are outside of Asia.

Below is the list of top 10 Malls:

3. Central World (4.62 million Sq. feet), Bangkok, Thailand

The eight-story CentralWorld in Bangkok, opened in 1990, is the largest shopping mall in Thailand. It marketed itself as a middle class shopping mall in contrast to the upscale Siam Paragon. On May 19 this year, CentralWorld was one of the many objects set on fire by anti-government demonstrators. The fire raged for two days and the Zen department store collapsed in the fire. After months of repairs, the shopping complex reopened on September 28, with 80% of its retail space open to the trade.

2. Golden Resources Mall (6.0 million Sq. feet), Beijing, China

At 1.5 times the size of the Mall of America, the Golden Resources Mall in China was the largest shopping mall in the world from 2004 to 2005. Although the developer of the mall originally assumed that the mall would have 50,000 buyers a day, as of 2004 the number was much smaller, only 20 in an hour. One problem was that the prices of most of the items sold were well above the purchase possibilities of most ordinary Chinese. Another obstacle was the inaccessibility of the Golden Resources shopping mall to foreign consumers due to its location outside of central Beijing.

1. New South China Mall (6.46 million Sq. feet), Dongguan, China

The New South China Mall in Dongguan, China, is the largest shopping mall in the world based on gross rental space. The mall has seven zones based on international cities, including a replica of the Arc de Triomphe and a canal with gondolas. It also has an indoor-outdoor roller coaster. What doesn’t exist are customers. Since opening in 2005, the mall has suffered from a severe shortage of occupants. Much of the retail space has remained empty and over 99% of the branches are empty. The only occupied areas of the mall are near the entrance, where there are several western fast food chains. It was called the largest ghost mall in the world.
