Abu Dhabi's new super mall

On a man-made island in the Middle East, the world's newest super mall sits empty -- for now.
Inside, water fountains shoot into the air, giant plasma screens flash advertisements, escalators rise and fall; their only admirers are the odd construction worker.
Missing from this scene are the shoppers.
But come November, Abu Dhabi's 235,000 square meter Yas Mall plans to open its doors to 20 million visitors per year.
