Something for everyone
Jun 2021 • Family
The building is obviously huge and we barely touched the surface during our visit, but there are so many things here that you’re sure to find something that interests you. There’s shopping, restaurants, cinema, ice rink, hotel etc. For us, the highlight was the water park- we had such a fun day abs will be back again for sure!

Its the largest building by floor area in the world. It has a shopping mall, an indoor water theme park and cinema. Indeed an eye opener for me. Definitely worth a visit.

it offers a wire verity of restaurants and coffe/tea/snacks shops. The artificial beach and water fun is good too. It gets very crowded during the weekend and summer months.

Gaudy, more staff than customers on a Thursday night
Nov 2019
In two Chinese word, "土豪", as in, gaudy, tasteless extravagance. I'm not a shopper but enjoy touring malls for their architecture, design and ambiance.

Quite disappointed in my visit to this rather soulless (5th largest in the world) mall. Which developer in their right mind conceived of this monstrosity? Concept notes: "Let's build the biggest... and add the hugest..."

Actually only about 40% of the mall is actual retail space while the remaining is occupied by a huge and (at the time of visiting on a Thursday evening in December) empty water park/hot spring/hotel. The washroom ceiling already showed signs of leaking and mildew and the marble (!) wall tiles were already peeling off. Stretches of hallway (especially on the way to the subway) were empty. Not even a booth or display. The food court was the highlight and even that had just the usual. More staff than customers on Thursday night

Add to the long list of superlatives: most costly, least inspiring, biggest waste of resources

I went there many times, it's a very nice place with ice-skating, swimming pool and a home of international and local brand. Despite it, this biggest building has a big hall without pillars.

Besides the view number of shops in the building the Paradise Water Park is definitely "worth visiting" , everything is just perfect , the acrobatic performances , the huge LCD screen blasting electro jams ✔✔, i really enjoyed all the four hours in the water.

*As a foreigner my advice is get a locker by paying a refundable 50 RMB.

BIGGEST SHOPPING CENTRE IN THE WORLD
Feb 2019
There is only one word to describe the shopping centre - BIG. After being on a day tour and heading back to our hotel, we decided at the last minute to detour to Global Centre. We were so pleased to see this amazing complex. As we walked through the main entrance and being probably the only "Western" person there, a little girl came and greeted us with.............."Hello, my name is Cindy, Welcome to China".........her parents were there and we walked over to them to say Thankyou to them for such a beautiful greeting from Cindy. We had some pictures taken and chatted briefly and said a fond goodbye to them. We started walking around this big shopping centre, the main foyer is massive with marble floors, long escalators and shops of every type possible..........clothing, food and so on......just Google the place and you can see how much variety is offered. The whole place was spotless and just enjoyable to walk around - you could easily spend a few hours here.

Depsite whats inside this mamoth architectural phenomenom of a building it truely is a sight like no other, even if malls arent your thing this still is a must see on your travels.

On arrival the share site of the building alone reminded me of how Noah built the Arch.. hmmm food for thought there.

Once inside you're greeted with marble floors, multi-level designer boutique stores with levels designated to Sports & Sports wear, fashion, Children, general shopping, food & entertainment.. and if spending 2-3hrs navigating the mall ismt enough theres always a Ice Skating Rink & Movie Theatres to kill some time..

With plenty of shops that are tailored to kids they also have plenty of play areas as well.. from an arcade, train rides around the mall, and designated play areas specifically for kids with adequate staffing to ensure theyre safe. They even have an orienteering type course for the kids to navigate as well which amazing.

After youre shopped out you can choose from the many restaurants and food stores readily available with all sorts of foods from local to western it doesnt matter theres plenty to choose from.

Perhaps youve decided youd like to stay there well you can choose from the upmarket onsite hotels & resort with an array of options to suit.

With the floor area of this building being a mamoth 423 acres of course they were able to build a Water Park in there which is beyond belied well equipped with a 500mtre pool and beach i might add, and of course Wave rider, water slides & poolside food market you cant go wrong..

Whilst there would be alot people could point out this mall doesnt have like an information desk, english speaking attendants, you have to remember you're in Chengdhu China where the city is growing so fast its the new meca city in China next to Shanghai & Beijing with 20+ million peolle already and climbing. In saying that im a first timer to China and know little Chinese and found my way around no problem.

Hope this review helps

Dont be judgmental just enjoy & have fun

The New Century Global Center is truly amazing. The world's largest building doesn't disappoint. This place is beyond a fun food and shopping destination.

Lack of information stations
Jun 2019 • Solo
This is cracked up to be the biggest mall in the world. I’d been to the Edmonton mall in Canada when it claimed to be the world’s biggest so I had to go and see the competition.

It’s big, brash and I’m sure they’ve used the world’s supply of marble. There are all the brands you would expect and a few I’d never heard of before. I just get the impression in these places that few people are buying anything (except in the food courts) and most people seem to be rubbernecking. I remember that Edmonton had lots of manned information stations whereas New Century has none that I could find.

It’s got a pretty mediocre skating rink and a giant beach lookalike swimming pool where everyone in the water seemed to have to wear life jackets or perhaps it was non-swimmers hour.

I remember Edmonton as being much more exciting and imaginative but I was a good deal younger then.

It’s worth a trip if you’ve got nothing more important to be doing.
