“very big but pretty empty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Was intrigued to see one of the biggest malls in the world. It certainly is very spacious. Aside from that, it's just a mall. Maybe a cool place for locals to hang, but not for tourists.

“Dream Mall Stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Take the MRT to Kaisyuan station (R6). There is a 24 seater shuttle bus that brings people to Dream Mall with an interval of 15 minutes. It's a big mall that houses signature brands. It's so spacious. There's an available free wifi connection if uou have the store's card. We went to the information and asked for wifi connections for tourists. We were gladly given the password. We were glad to see a shop in the mall where we bought some of their delicacies. Courteous and helpful staffs are around to help.

“A shopping maniac's haven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

If you're looking for a mall that caters to every age, this is the mall for you. For ladies, you can find your designer bags/clothes/etc. For men, you get to visit the car dealerships. For children, you get to play around or even take the ferris wheel. For great food, you can just about find food anywhere.

P.S. They have smoking rooms nearby the restrooms so you needn't worry about smoking in the rain or stuff like that.

“Its a mall...giant sized”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

After visiting local night markets and stores, I was surprised to find very little by way of standard touristy stuff in Kaohsiung. Being from the US, I am quite accustomed to every place you go having shirts, hats, etc with the various place names. Anyways, my fellow travelers and I set off to Dream Mall in search of such items.

The building itself is quite impressive, and definitely worth a visit. Inside, we found 11 floors of "more of the same". Many very high end shops that left us wondering where do locals shop? The ferris wheel ride was fun, and despite an average age of 45ish, we spent a good amount of time in the arcade. We did end up with some postcards and odds and ends, but over all pretty disappointed.

“Top tips for visiting Dream Mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Tip 1: Although the biggest mall in Kaohsiung, there were not many shoppers.

Tip 2: The shopping mall seems to be empty half of the time. This could be because of the location. It is not built near a metro station. The nearest metro station is about 1 km away.

Tip 3: There are a lot of selections of Japanese food but it is also quite pricey.

Tip 4: The mall is so big but you cannot seem to find a bank.

Tip 5: It cost about 180 NT dollar to take a taxi from Kaohsiung Railway station to the mall.

Tip 6: I would recommend my friends to come here but wouldnt recommend them to buy anything here. Most of the stuff here are pretty outdated.
