As western consumerism spreads its money-making tentacles into the far corners of the globe, countries without grocery stores are now building shopping facilities so big they can’t even find enough vendors to fill them. In fact, most of the shopping centers on this list are located in Asia and its surrounding regions. It’s a classic case of the student surpassing the master.
