Global Center in Chengdu,
400 meters (1,310 feet) wide and
100 meters (325 feet) high,
it’s massive enough to hold 20 Sydney Opera Houses
or three Pentagons,
according to local authorities.
Yeah, I've been there many time.
In fact, it is so big that you can rarely see the whole building
due to the fog that's common in Chengdu.
The indoor beach is only a small part of the building.
A large shopping mall with many stores of all sorts, a food mall, many floors of restaurants,
an ice hockey rink, a number of movie theaters, a hotel and offices occupy most of the space.

The homes are big.
Many have washing machines,
but few in China have driers.
They hang their clothes outside
even in the big cities.
On balconies, or just outside the window.
