Forbes List The World's 10 Largest Shopping Malls

Heading out to the mall--isn't that yesterday's way to shop?

Not in Asia, where a building boom has enormous shopping malls popping up in China, Malaysia and the Philippines, with India expected to jump into the fold soon. Based on Gross Leasable Area, or the amount of space devoted to revenue-producing operations like stores, amusements and food, the continent is home to eight of the world's 10 largest malls, six of which have been built since 2004. That's added some 27 million square feet of shopping space to cities like Beijing and Guangzhou in China and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Asia's rapidly growing economy has spawned a new wave of consumers looking for places to shop and play. Most of them are quite ritzy, too.
