This Saturday I visited the biggest building in the world, Chengdu’s New Century Global Center. This thing is really huge. It contains a shopping mall, plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, offices, theatres, two 5 star hotels, a skating ring (which is quite comfortable in Chengdu’s tropical summer) and much much more…
This huge building has even made it possible for us to have a beach in Chengdu! Why settle for the coastal cities of Zhuhai and Qingdao with their natural beaches, when the economic hub of Western China now has a splendid artificial beach indoors! This beach will always be clean and you don’t need to be afraid of any sharks.
Moreover, “The Paradise Island Waterpark” offers a 24 hour artificial sun. This will be a great asset during cloudy winter days, which means that you will be able to enjoy a beautiful beach all year long!
There is so much to see and do in the shopping mall. The Center has so much to offer that it feels like a small town. It would be possible to live in the Global Center and never have to leave!
The size of the building is just astonishing. When I walked out of the metro station and saw the Global Center for the first time, I instantly felt really, really small. You will not see many buildings on this planet that will give you this impression.
I actually wanted to walk around the New Century Global Center. Since there are still some construction sites I couldn’t finish the lap. The final completion will be in August. Therefore, the InternChina team will definitely come back to discover every corner of this architectural phenomenon.
