Raffles City

Opened in 2011, Raffles City is a multi-use development located on Renmin South Road in the South of Chengdu. Featuring office and residential space in addition to an expansive mall, Raffles City is among the most lauded premium property developments in Chengdu.

Raffles City is most well known for the four-level shopping mall which features dozens of international stores, stores, and restaurants that can’t be found anywhere else in Chengdu. Places inside the complex include Treat, Lumiere Pavilions movie theater, and more. The Raffles City mall has direct access to the Sichuan Gymnasium subway station.

Raffles City is a “city within a city” development, designed by famed American architect Steven Holl.


Most of the shops inside the Raffles City mall are premium, and roughly half are international, so it’s easy to spend a lot of money here. Restaurants and the Lumiere Pavilions movie theater inside Raffles City are roughly equivalent to other locations in Chengdu in terms of price.
