The most beautiful shopping malls around the world

ADVERTISEMENT


When you go out for your weekly shop, or to buy your annual wardrobe (yes, I’m talking about you, men!) you probably just venture to your local mall, with your budget department stores and your food market. You probably don’t expect to be greeted with gondola rides, rollercoasters, or giant aquariums, do you? Well, in certain parts of the world this could be your local shopping mall. Bet you’re regretting your house location now. Let’s all move to Dubai!

Dubai Mall – Dubai, United Arab Emirates

If you’ve ever been to Dubai or the United Arab Emirates, you’ll know that they don’t do anything by halves. Everything is excessive, everything is elegant, everything is clean, and everything is beautiful. Including the shopping malls. As well as being one of the most beautiful malls in the world, the Dubai Mall is also the largest in the world and comes complete with 1,200 shops to its name, an Aquarium and Discovery Center, an ice rink, a theme park, a 22-screen cinema, the largest candy store in the world, an interactive children’s center, and one of the most spectacular indoor fountains on the planet! Not much, then…

The Grand Canal Shoppes – Las Vegas, United States of America

Don’t worry if you’ve never visited Venice because you won’t need to if you take a trip to the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas! This Venetian-themed hotel comes complete with its very own Grand Canal Shoppes featuring incredible waterways, which you can travel using Gondolas – with your very own Gondola driver who might even sing for you if you’re lucky. The mall offers 91 shops connected by cobbled streets and a moving clouded ceiling. And of course, no Venetian street would be complete without street performers.

Canal City – Fukuoka, Japan

Just like the Grand Canal Shoppes in Las Vegas, Canal City shopping mall in Japan has based its mall around incredible canals. The canals serve as the main event in this mall, with the shops built as if they surround the water. But these buildings aren’t your typical run of the mill two-up two-down buildings. Instead, they are all curved, with water features, fountains, and sculptures which have been designed and constructed to trick the eyes of its visitors. As well as some of the most prestigious shops and brands, the mall also houses art exhibitions, gaming centers, cinemas, a music stadium – and the piece de resistance is the fifth floor of the mall which is solely dedicated to ramen! Time to tuck in.

Berjaya Times Square – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Despite the fact the Berjaya Times Square shopping mall in Malaysia is Asia’s largest shopping mall, the grandiose mall is actually designed around the streets and bright lights of New York’s Times Square. With a makeshift subway station, big billboards and bright signs, you could easily mistake it for the Big Apple! The shopping mall offers its visitors over 1000 stores, as well as an incredible indoor theme park complete with roller coasters (yep, inside), a haunted house, and more. As if it wasn’t already pretty epic, the mall also throws in the extra awesomeness of a giant musical staircase to entertain you (and your kids) for hours.

West Edmonton Mall – Edmonton, Canada

The West Edmonton Mall is one of the most beautiful malls in the world because it is one of the most unexpected. As you walk through the doors, you’re bombarded with a huge area full of fun and activities. As well as the obvious stores and food halls, this mall offers the largest indoor waterpark in the world, complete with a wave pool and 83-foot tall water slide, an ice rink, a lake which features sea lions, a mini-golf course, a shooting range, bowling alley, arcade, music Stadium, a chapel and an indoor theme park! Could you need anything else?

Peter Dinklage praises ‘beautiful’ Game of Thrones ending

OHMYGOSSIP — Peter Dinklage thinks his ‘Game of Thrones’ alter ego has a “beautiful” ending.
The 49-year-old actor has wrapped shooting his scenes as Tyrion Lannister for the final season of the HBO drama and he has praised showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss for the “brilliant” final episodes of the fantasy saga, as he’s particularly satisfied with the final storylines he was given as the Hand of the Queen.
He told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “There are no better writers in television than [showrunners] Dan Weiss and David Benioff. They ended it brilliantly. Better than I could have imagined and you people are in for it.
“It ends beautifully for my character whether it be tragic or not.”
Peter recently admitted he had found it hard to say goodbye to the show because he had “developed deep roots” in many of the areas he shot the drama in because it was so far away from the home he shares with wife Erica Schmidt and their two children.
He said last month: “I had my last day on set in July, just over two months ago now and it was very sad.
“This is not only a great TV show to be a part of, but it was an enormous family to be a part of.
“I’m sure you’ve heard that before from actors but in this case I was far from home, I live in New York and we shot the show in Europe, so many times I had to stay there and couldn’t go home on the weekends and I really developed deep roots in the community of Ireland and some of the other countries we shot in.
“It was definitely hard to say goodbye, because it wasn’t just saying goodbye to the show, I was saying goodbye to a life over there.”
