(Note: Searched for mall(s), shopping center(s), shopping centre(s), shop, shopping, and etc. but found no satisfactory results. If I am wrong, then please annihilate this thread.)

Malls and shopping centres are probably the most interesting haven that everyone can freely go in and out. Even though we dont have the money, or we dont want to buy anything, we just want to stroll around on the nearest mall and whatsoever. So, which mall do you go most to? Do you like that mall or not? What are your favorite mall memories? Have you been or seen one of the largests malls? Please discuss anything that can connect to your mall information or mall experience.

A shopping mall or a shopping centreis a building or set of buildings that contain a variety of retail units, with interconnecting walkways enabling visitors to easily walk from unit to unit.

The shopping mall construction boom in Asia has attracted a good deal of international media attention during the past few years. Eight of the ten largest malls in the world were in Asia in early 2008 and several more mega-malls in China and the United Arab Emirates are under construction. Mall watchers have predicted that within the next few years, seven of the ten largest shopping malls in the world will be in China alone.

well I have never been to a shopping centre like one of those. They look really nice tho, I want to go!.
I just go to the city for my shopping, or sometimes to the local shopping centre which is like 100m away from my school.

I go to Metrotown. I live in Vancouver and it's in Burnaby but it's like a 5 minute drive. o.o Another mall called Crystal Mall is practically right beside it but not much people go there. I go almost every week to Metrotown. Crystal Mall, rarely, but I do go occasionally, there's just not much to get there and it's sometimes freakishly empty. >.> Also, I hate how the design is so you walk around in circles. @_@
