I was here just to see the mega size screen. It was humongous, I guess that just how Chinese people like to build stuff. Check out the restaurants next to this building. There is TGIF and some other nice restaurants.

The size of the screen is super-impressive. Something nobody would have seen prior to this. But thats all to the attraction. It is in the heart of the city , so it could be included in the itinerary between two points. If one starts from the other end, and walk towards the main entrance, finding a cab would be much...

Visit The Place to see the enormous LED screen above your head. There are some restaurants - Indian, Korean BBQ - there. If you walk to the North side and cross into another shopping area there are more Western restaurants like TGI Friday and an Italian place.

I was looking for a restaurant and stumbled upon this. Pretty impressive even if you only want to take a picture or six. A lot of people were gathered here and it was something I won't forget for a while. It's something you don't expect in China from your history books but a sign that they too are fast becoming...

A memorable trip at the place. the giant tv screen is obviously the main draw and it is something quite unique. Shopping wise it's probably average on the grand scheme of things; compared to other beijing shopping centre's. However, the atmosphere will make the place at little bit more special. Only worth visiting at night. Taxi's rank outside the entrance... More

We were passing on the way to another tourist attraction and stopped dead in our tracks when we saw the size of this giant TV screen. Never have I seen anything as big as this, anywhere I have visited. We didn't go inside, we aren't even sure what was inside, we were just very content to watch the display/show on... More

Quite beautiful at night. Tons of ads on the Tv screen kind of ruin the beauty. You do all your brand shopping here as well. There are a few good foreign restaurants here. There is a movie theater near here as well. Just a hang out place where you can grab a cub of coffee with your friends and sit... More

Disappointing would sum up this area. Loads of tourists come to take photos and look at the large rooftop screen - to be fair, it is impressive - but there's little else to see and do. A few shops and restaurants but you can find better shopping experiences elsewhere.

Not only did we get a wonderful show of Space Travel accompanied by The Planets (Holtz), we also found THE BEST Indian Restaurant in the basement beside Starbucks. The variety was outstanding, the quality above average and the prices great value for money. Great evening had by all

I came her eat two times because it was near my hotel. First time when the screen was on which I have to say was very cooI. I was also here on a Friday night and they had a stage with dancers and about 200 people in a crowd following along with the moves (which I guess it the reason... More
