You may already know about the Burj Kalifa, the tallest building in the world. Now, you’re about to meet the biggest building in the world, New Century Global Center which has just opened up a few days ago in Chengdu, China.

According to The Telegraph,  newly opened gigantic building is 500 metres long, 400 metres wide and 100 metres high. On the inside it has a floor space of 1.7 million square meters, which Sydney Morning Herald claims is “big enough to accommodate the Sydney Opera House 20 times over”.

This multifunctional building will have cinemas, shopping centers,  hotels,  a water theme park with artificial beach and a whole lot more inside. The building also said to have an “artificial sun” that lights the inside of the building 24/7, along with an “artificial horizon” projected on a 150-meter-long screen. I have no idea how that looks but it sure sounds like amazing.

Check out the video to take a closer look.
