“Big City, Hsinchu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

I took the free shuttle bus outside of Sogo which is opposite the Hsinchu Railway Station. It carter more to the well heeled with many well known middle/upper range brands and the San Francisco's theme on the 7th floor is similar to that of Terminal 21 Bangkok.

“Bright and Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

This is the second run at the success of this ginormous mall. It had previously closed down for some time, but is now reopened, refurbished, and really quite fun. No more going to Taipei for your Friday night games; Big City has bowling, batting cages, and a skating rink.
The food court is extensive, serving many traditional styles of Taiwanese food. Plus there's pizza, donuts, and ice cream.
The staff at the movie theater are exceptional. I went out to get some popcorn just as the movie was starting, and one of the staff took my order and brought my order, and my change to my seat. To get to the food court and movie theater, just enter up the UFO portal like escalator.
The skating rink is a neat date idea. Pads, helmets, and skates are available (you'll have to sign a waiver if you don't want to wear a helmet!)
Kids will get a thrill out of the arcade. Teens and older will enjoy the indoor golf and batting cages, and the whole family will enjoy the 14 (or so) lanes of bowling.
Big City, one gorgeous mall.
