World Largest Building In Chengdu

I was extremely impressed and amazed at the speed of China's development everywhere at their modern airports, high speed trains, tallest buildings and now, the "Biggest Building In The World". They had a void period of "Cultural Revolution" yet they have overtaken so many countries today.


1. Most of the buildings in Chengdu are lighted up at night with full scaled LED technology screens where they will have colourful patterns dancing its way on the whole building. Suddenly they could flash out live advertisements or even brief TV news on the whole building. My jaws just dropped in disbelief. I have not seen such buildings in Shanghai at all.



2. On our first night in Chengdu, we took their subway train to look for the World's Biggest Building which was opened very recently. It was drizzling lightly and we walked like crazy due to the GPS inaccuracy.




 3. There are several entrances but we entered through the Global Mall.



 4. This is the artist's impression showing how this giant building looked like from above. It has all the convenience to pamper all the families, business associates and tourists. They have hotel, shopping mall, Water Theme Park, Private Beach, Convention Centres and blah blah blah.
You can google HERE



 

 5. The entrance is so high class and nice with all the shiny walls and polished marble flooring!




 6. The ceiling is so high and brightly lit with impressive decors to welcome shoppers.




 7. It was slightly warmer inside, so I flashed my jacket open to show that I wore 3 layers!




 8. All the big brands are there!




9. Every country I visited, I must try their McD and visit their 7-Elevens as a ritual habit. The mall looked empty because I waited for everyone to get out of my camera's range.




10. I behaved like kids again and posed SK's signature "Running Away" 
from loan sharks style.





 11. I know I am naughty. You are just the same!




 12. They used London as their Christmas promotions. Well, I plan to visit London in 2014 and need to pass the hat around to you all. Thanks!





 13. My darling got herself happily lost in the maze.






 14. The patterns of their marble flooring everywhere made my eyes dizzy.


  

15. We were hungry after playing & fooling around so much. We tried our first spicy meal at their Sichuan's Steamboat restaurant which was crowded. The misty air inside was spicy and stung my eyes to cry.


 

 16. Oh My Goodness! My soup was red and spicy hot with their killer peppers!!! My mouth was spitting out flames of FIRE!!!! Arghh!!!



 


 17. My smarter honey chose their herbal soup. Look at their huge vegies and the leaves that looked like IKEA's potted plant.

    1. I must say that the folks in Chengdu are most polite so far. I was very surprised to see them line up at bus stops and subway stations. They don't push like in Shanghai or Xian.

    I agree that people in China is very creative, their mind and works always amaze the world! Just look at how they host the Olympic few years ago, simply stunning! Those LED lights are so cool!

    2. And those food looks yummy! Look at the color of the soup!

      Delete
    3. Yes the world applauded their Olympics opening as the best!
      Their food is not yummy to me at all. I had to eat something else milder.
      I have visited over 10 cities in China and all gave shocks & disbeliefs! Their folks speak different slangs and behaved differently. Only the open toilets are the same!

  15. Ahhh, another interesting post.. The title itself already attracted me "The Largest Building...."

    Yes, buildings with LED is everywhere in China.. When I went to Foshan, Guangzhou I could see this everywhere too, especially at night. Most buildings (tall or short, big or small) will have LED flashing everywhere.

    Aahh, that "blue ray" in your 2nd picture looks very interesting..

    Replies
    1. Wah, the entrance of the building is really, really (I really mean really) high class! Like a 10star hotel entrance (wait, is there such thing as 10star)?

      You felt grand mou when you walked in?

      Delete
    2. Oh, I'm the same too. Everywhere I visit, I will lookout for their McD, KFC and Watsons (or Guardian). I could get so much "koo ling jing kuai" and cute stuffs from Watsons, Foshan previously.. With all the Hello Kitty merchandise and all.. I didn't lookout for their 7-11 so much tho', except in Tokyo..

      Aahh, when I see your "running away" pose, I immediately think of SK too, hehe.. You really like this pose-see hor?

      Oohh, you are not naughty by touching the boobs la, I think if I were you, I would do the same too.. "Fong poon lap" wor, who don't want touch wor, kan?

      Delete
    3. When you mentioned Sichuan steamboat, I immediately think of "malat" soup which is red in colour and spicy to death... But it's good to try their signature "malat" soup when you are there, tho I know they put flames in your mouth, haha. So you left the whole pot of "malat" soup untouched?

      When I go for steamboat, I don't like tomyam also. I prefer their ching-tong, but I will still order ying-yong coz kiasu ma.. 1 type soup or 2 types soup, also the price is the same, so I kiasu order ying-yong lor, coz can drink 2 types of soups ma, hehe..

      Delete
    4. I heard that Guangzhou has the most LED screens everywhere because the LEDs are mostly produced there!

      Where got 10 Star Hotel? Wait till you build one lah. Even 6 star also hard to maintain.

      I will never eat that Malat steamboat again. Surrender with white flags! I could not understand how all their folks could enjoy them like eating chocolates!

      Delete
  16. yeah you are very true, China is very fast developing economy, even though they had a void period of "Cultural Revolution" yet they have overtaken so many countries today - and one very good example is our Bolehland, i really don't see any progress but seems to be just stepping foot on the same spot!!

    1. #1: wow, those LED on the building sounds interesting.. so everywhere in Chengdu is like our UMNO building which is throwing a humungous amount of money to build and maintain the LED??

      #2: so this is rather a shopping and makan trip for Anay and Letchumi in the world's biggest building?? errr, of course also posing for silly photos dei~~

      #3: so this is the world's largest building?? hmmm, includes the area surrounding the main building also?? hmmm, i wonder why the Arab's have not built another to overtake this?? :p

      There was nothing that I could afford inside except UNIQLO's. It was just an eye opener as I was damn curious to step inside the world's largest building.

  17. #5 & #6: so grand and majestic inside!! but this is always not my style lah, hahahaha.. Thambee always prefer contemporary and minimalist designs, not these classical ones~~ :p

    #7 & #8: somehow those palm trees with lights on the trunks remind me of a shopping mall in Dubai that i have went.. exactly the same decoration.. maybe the Arab's actually invested in this mall??

    #9: fuyoh, after the McD signboard (cos we will never see chinese McD signboard here), the next thing that caught my attention is the marble floor.. so new and clean that it reflected the two McD logos, but the pattern is too messy to me..

    1. I am not sure if that place belonged to foreign investors. These days China is getting rich and investing overseas. They even pumped in so much to our Iskandar's Development, you heard that news?? Yeah also that Xiamen University too.

      I agree that the lighted palms looked like the ones in Dubai. I saw that on TV. Everyone copies everyone these days. Even pizza was probably copied from the Muslims in Middle East and Xian.

    2. I had to do the #10 pose so many times to get it right. It was not easy to balance on one leg like SK lah!!

      I realised that most photos looked boring when I stood like a mannequin pose. Before I reach old age, i better be funny!!! I hope other bloggers will pose funny too.

      #13 photo was crazy as she was really lost inside!!!

  19. #14: exactly!! that's exactly what i think about the marbles on the floor.. wise people think alike huh?? i think probably this was the boss's idea, strong idea that even the designer could not be able to convince him not to use this marbles~~ Cinapek!! :D

    #15 - #17: fuyoh, pat on the shoulder Anay!! you dare to try the notorious Sichuan spicy soup!! OMG, i won't even want to go near, sure i will have to go to the toilet for one whole day besides my lips turned into two pieces of thick sausages!! smart Letchumi, she opted for the herbal soup~~

    1. My head was really giddy with my eyes roving like vertigo by the marble floors! That was the first time I saw such patterns. I wonder what was in the designer's mind.

      No more Sichuan steamboat. The folks there feast on the spicy food so often, that's why they are so slim!!!

  22. Wow---what an incredible group of photos... China truly is ahead of most of us in the world. As far as the good ole USA is concerned, we just keep on borrowing money from China and getting farther and farther in debt... Truly, our country (as great as it is --and I LOVE it) is in big trouble.... Nuff said....

    Glad you had such a great time. Love all of the fun you obviously have... Sounds like George and me!!!!! ha
