China Plaza

November 5, 2007

China Plaza is another multi-purpose shopping mall, business office, and accommodation. Sat on top of Lie Shi Ling Yuan station, and on the busy Zhong Shan San Lu, it is an imposing sight and the tallest building in the area.

Immediately next to the plaza is ‘Hero Square’, the largest outdoor ‘entertainment’ square in Guangzhou, and one that is always hosting some shopping promotion and sporting event (typically skating).

La Perle

Pearl design fountain

La Perle is one of Guangzhou’s most exclusive shopping malls and probably hosts the most expensive and most glittering array of shops out of them all. Sat squarely in the middle of the Friendship Store, Baiyun Hotel, and the Garden Hotel, it’s a slice of luxury in the otherwise downtown area of Huan Shi Dong Lu.

La Perle is French for ‘The Pearl’, named after Guangzhou’s Pearl River, and this is reflected in the design of the building which, when viewed from the top floor, could be said to resemble a pearl shape.

Grandview Mall

November 4, 2007

Grandview Plaza is the newer twin to TeeMall, standing only a few hundred metres away and offering the same kind of stores and a similar experience. The Plaza takes a different architectural spin, aiming to create a light and airy environment through the use of seven atriums that are designed to bring in as much light as possible.

The Plaza has an indoor ice-skating rink, a 3D cinema, and numerous retail shops and restaurants, including a large Trust Mart.

Backstreet

Backstreet entrance

Although part of the CITIC Plaza, Backstreet is a curiously quirky corridor that stretches from one tower to the next and goes underneath the car park. It seems to be aimed at a more younger and cheaper audience, and contains about 20 or so shops and restaurants that range from a stationers to jewellery shops to a Japanese restaurant.

For expats Backstreet is of particular interest because of Corner’s Deli, a large speciality food store that caters for Westerners and Japanese.

TeeMall is one of Guangzhou’s leading shopping malls and is now known as the ‘Saloon of Guangzhou’. A brief look at some figures should give an indication why:

It contains a cinema, a gaming centre, as well as numerous shops, restaurants, caf├ęs and just about everything else you could think of. The basement houses a metro station, making it extremely easy to reach.
