It is a shopping center. And it is very big. But also very unpersonal and very loud. Many restaurants.

Here you can find a little bit of everything, from Coffee Shops to nice restaurants, along with electronic, shoes and clothes stores. Is a good place to go have an ice cream with your kids, or just go have a meal according to your need, either on the food court or in a regular restaurant. Since this mall is near... More

Said to be the largest shopping center in South America, we found Barra Shopping and the adjacent New York Center with a replica of the Statue of Liberty, to be a wonderful site to dine and shop during our recent visit to the Rio Olympics. The sprawling two story mall is south of the city of Rio in the suburb... More

Nice mall, pretty large with many high end stores mixed in with regular ones. The spread of stores meant walking the mall in its entirety to get to the stores I was interested in. Nice options for food offered, loved the crepes and there's an Applebees.

It is a big shopping mall placed at Barra. You can get there by bus. or BRT. A lot of local stores. You can also buy souvenirs. But there are no good shoe shops.

While this is a typical shopping centre the world over it had a good selection of shops, many offering discounts and special offers. Not all 'top end' prices. There was a great food mall serving a wide variety of foods - plenty of choice for all in terms of type of food and prices Express buss at a cost of... More

Got to say, I'm not really a keen shopper, so it doesn't really do it for me. However, as far as shopping centres go.... It's clean, there are lots....and I mean LOTS...of shops; and loads of places to eat. If you're from London, think Westfield, but three times the size. If you like shopping, you'll love it

All towns in the uk should have a place like this. A bit if a surprise how much is here. Restaurants, shops, medical, beauty etc etc. Looks expensive though.

Cool mall with multiple stores, foodcourts and sit down restaurants. The mall is also connected to the New York Center. Taxi's can be located at entrance B. Simply show them the address of you're hotel and they will take you there.

Enormous modern mall with multiple food courts and quite a few sit-down restaurants as well, including Outback Steakhouse and multiple McDonalds (if you crave the taste of home). Unlike many malls I've been to around this world, this one didn't seem to be overrun by international chains, but instead had lots of local stores, including the only TIM I found... More
