The World’s Best Shopping Malls

Happy (?) Black Friday. For the competitor shopper, it is probably the greatest day of the year, one marked by ritualistic preparations (queueing up at 2 AM) and redemption (10% off that plasma TV!). For others, it’s all rather soul and potentially even body-crushing, and most definitely not worth it. If you’re of the latter opinion, we’ve got your back. We’ve rounded up some of the best shopping malls in the world, from Beijing to Frankfurt, and from such big-brand name architects as Daniel Libeskind and Zaha Hadid–all for your entertainment. Have a look,  sip some cold beer, and lounge in a comfy sofa. And revel in your smart decision to stay indoors.
