The end of April witnessed the grand opening of Anhua Mall, the first themed shopping center — as well as a new landmark — in Baiyun district. The 9-story mall, one floor underground and 8 above ground, stands about 40 meters tall and covers an area of 300,000 square meters—about 714 NBA basketball courts! With 350 brands operating here, though, what exactly makes this complex different from others? Let's have a look!
1. The longest shopping mall in Guangzhou
With a roof designed as a yellow ship and an exterior decorated with blue and white glass curtains, the complex is difficult to ignore in its area. It stretches 330 meters, too long to fit in a camera lens (go challenge me).
Built in a once dilapidated area of Baiyun district, the mall officially opened on April 28 after three years' construction. Under the theme of a sailing ship, it adopts a brownish yellow hue and infuses elements like ebb tide, shallows and waves into its interior design.
Viewed from the ground, its spiraling floors look like circles of waves.
Even the floor guide is in the shape of a rudder.
The mirror in the restroom resembles a Russian doll, with a series of mirrors each smaller than the last, placed one inside the other.
