Most malls have their own unique selling points(USP) and may specialize in entertainment, lifestyle and flamboyant mall designs etc.

 

We hope to visit several of exciting malls such as the APM, Capitaland Mall (Xizhimen), China World Mall, Chaoyang Joy City, Seasons Place, Parkview Green Fangcaodi, Xidan Joy City, Zhongliang Joy City Mall, MixC Shopping Mall, Forum 66, Star Mall Shenyang Plaza, and Happy Family Mall and focus on their building design and layouts, and to learn about their marketing events etc.
