Sup Travellers?! The human race over the years has managed to master the art of construction. This art allowed us to build giant monuments such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Taj Mahal, the Colosseum and much more. But no one has been able to master the art like the Chinese who recently opened up the doors to the biggest building in the WORLD!!!!!! The Biggest!!!!!!


China's city of Chengdu just recently opened the doors to the New Century Global Center, listed as the biggest building in the world reports the UK Guardian. The entrance is 18 stories high, and the building itself is 1,600 feet long and 1,300 feet wide. But even those dimensions don't seem to capture it. This is closer: Among the office buildings, ice rink, movie theater, miniature village, five-star hotels, and shopping center is a massive artificial beach, complete with sand, water, and the world's biggest LED screen.

"We have borrowed a Japanese technique," one guide told the Sydney Morning Herald for a story while construction was still underway. "There is an artificial sun that shines 24 hours a day and allows for a comfortable temperature." The Aussie paper adds some context for readers: Twenty Sydney Opera House could fit inside.

Let's do a little a bit of analysis shall we. Twenty Sydney Opera Houses can fit inside the building. That alone should give you a bit of an idea of how big it is. Despite the fact that I have no idea of how big the Opera House is in Australia, I digest digress. The Chinese seemingly try really hard to marvel the world. It's almost as if it's their God given purpose to just marvel the rest of the world. I wonder if the United States or Russia is up for the challenge? Hmm. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
