This is the best mall in the southern Gyeongbuk area until the new Daegu Shinsegae opens. It has pretty much every major brand you will want to shop and almost everything you would want to eat. The layout of the old side is confusing as heck. The escalators make no sense and everything is scattered, around bends and in nooks... More

A big mall, yes. But there's so many of those kinda "huge" malls in cities and Centum City is no different. Found the entire experience a little dizzying and the layout confusing.

The department store is conveniently located at a subway stop. The department store is supposedly the largest shopping complex in the world - and I wouldn't doubt it. There is a golf range, children's dinosaur park (Zooragi - very fun for children), skating rink, and more in addition to the regular department store stuff! There is also a large basement... More

This place is huge and it was just too much for my husband and I to handle. We didn't come here to shop but to walk to Busan Cinema Center. But we did check out the food court and they had variety of foods. Still, it was too overwhelming for us. We will only return here for the spa world... More

Shinsegae wellknown as the biggest dept store in South East Asia. You can find most of things inside, foods, parfumes, jewelry, luxury bags, and even electronics. Definetely will go back on my next visit to Busan.

Such an extraordinary department store experience. This should be on the list of the top 5 things to do in Busan. Certainly, it should be way above the Gamcheon Village experience Where else can you find a store with such an extraordinary spa, an ice skating rink, numerous movie theatres , floors filled with classy restaurants, golf, etc! The world's... More

Great place to spend a good half day or so. Specially on a wet rainy day. Huge mall with a wide variety of shops and food court! Not necessarily the cheapest when it comes to clothing but you can find the odd deals.

Just another big shopping complex selling very expensive goods. You just name it and you will find what you want especially the branded ones. A lot of people around makes it a bit noisy. Lots of restaurants. I would recommend go for the food rather than the goods. Lotte department store is just next to it so making it super... More
