Happy Valley (simplified Chinese: 太阳新天地购物中心; traditional Chinese: 太陽新天地購物中心; pinyin: Tàiyáng xīntiāndì) is a shopping mall in the Zhujiang New Town[1] of the Tianhe District,[2] Guangzhou, China.

Overview[edit]

The mall, completed in 2012, has 150,000 square metres of floor space designed by Altoon-Partners and Benoy Ltd. The total floor area makes it the biggest shopping mall in Zhujiang New Town.[3] The mall is managed by the Paragon Group (Guangzhou).

The mall is home to many multinational retailers such as Class Cavalli of Roberto Cavalli, Maxvalu Tokai,[4][5] Uniqlo,[6][7] Dirk Bikkembergs and is home to the Guangzhou flagship venue of China Film Cinema.
