The good There is nothing like this huge display. Alot of shops and places to eat with none Chinese food. Big, not so crowded, outside area. The bad Expensive since its US/UK/EU top brands. As expected. Many shops are so empty, it feels weird. Even if its called TGI Fridays, with all US menu, they have hard time with english.... More

A TV on the grandest scale. Truly amazing and the whole city environment was relaxed and enjoying the moment. A must see for any traveller.

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.
