Shinsegae – World’s largest department store

Filed under: abroad, South Korea, Trips — Tags: , — myyearinjapan @ 12:45 am

In my previous post about the Lotte department store, I introduced the world’s largest indoor water show. At another major department store in Busan, Shisegae at Centum City, they may not have an indoor water show, but they seem to have just about everything else. Shinsegae means new world (新世界). In addition to your typical clothing stores, book stores, shoe stores, cafes, restaurants, and toy stores, this gigantic shopping complex also has a multiplex, a skating rink, a roof top park, an indoor golf range, and a spa. Although this is the largest Shinsegae, it is not considered the flagship store. Their flagship is in Seoul.

At the entrance into Shinsegae from the subway, a copy of Rome's Trevi fountain. Seems pretty old world for a place called 'New World' if you ask me...

I took some pictures of the city from the roof top park. Some of the shrubberies were blocking my view.

The city grows taller and taller and taller.
