I can't say that I actually mind shopping malls in short doses.  But I have to be able to exit really quickly.  It's not claustrophobia, it's COSTrophobia.  I can spend my whole salary in an hour if you let me.  So I'd never be caught DEAD in these big honkin' structures... According to Forbes, these are some of the biggest malls in the world.  Dubai, Canada, Turkey and China are featured here.  You'll see huge skating rinks, swimming pools, staircases that look like they should be in hotels, a fish tank that looks like the actual Atlantic Ocean, and much much more.  Check 'em out:

BTW-have you noticed here what's missing?  There's no Mall of America listed.  I thought we had one of the biggest in this country.  Don't tell me we're losing in this race too???
