Once again very simialr to a typical Aussie mall with stores having very similar to AUD prices but the stalls outside were a bit cheaper and good for souvenirs. Food court was good and we ate outside in the restaurant downstairs in the entrance a few times which was reasonably priced and a delicious feast!

Thought we would stop by (even though we knew it was a Western experience and not a Thai shopping experience at all) We knew there would be no bargaining in here but expected some of the brands to be somewhat cheaper (Zara, H&M, CK etc) but it's the exact same prices as buying at home which means going here is...

It's suppose to be one of the best places in phuket, it's just another mall with usual high street and some designer shops ( all more expensive & limited than In Australia, US or Canada. The food hall is great with a range of Thai fresh produce and international groceries and toiletries etc. The mall has good bakeries, local thai... More

Very large shopping complex with all the regular takeaway outlets. If you want to feel back home in the western world this is the place for you. No real bargains to be had here. I would suggest if you visit phuket go to the beaches not the shopping malls they are basically the same everywhere.

The Central Festival is a mall which is so huge that you can easily spend one whole day and still not get bored. One can shop in the local marts and or in the huge never-ending outlets. There are many eateries with even vegetarian food availability, we ate at Burger King and Sub-way. My favorite picture spot was near a... More

Sone good brand shops here and we found the Levi shop to be much cheaper than the UK and had a good deal on for songkran. It was very busy and queue to get in and out of car park.

This place has the usual food court and a great array of traditional food at the Ancient Food Festival area. Lots of fashions stores and the more recognisable fast food outlets. Some good keepsake shopping too.

Quite a large shopping centre with one department store and also Cinemas. Lots of restaurants and a grocery store and also a bank. We went when it first opened many years ago and it seemed a lot cheaper back then - compared to Aussie prices. The last few times I have not purchased anything much as Australian prices are cheaper.... More
