We only had a quick look around here while on holiday in August. This place is huge, several levels I think. Many, many shops, clothing, shoes, bags, phones, chemists everything you can think of. But in our opinion not very cheap. For example Haviana jandals the same if not dearer than in NZ. We did try some food from a... More

We were in Phuket in Sept 2016 during its wettest season yet and we decided to drop by Central Festival for a short walkaround. My review is summed as below:- 1. Parking was horrendous. It was cramped but we were lucky to actually got a parking really close to the escalator. 2. The place hosted some really nice shops complete... More

On a rainy day during our stay at Phuket we went to the shopping mall Central. While it's not too big it this mall still offers a lot of shops and restaurants. Most of the familiar shops are there and bargains are easily found. We came from Katathani Resort, it took about 40 to 45 minutes to get there and... More

The mall has little souvenir booths, as well as name brands. If you're in the area drop in for a few hours. Name brands like Apple, nike, and others were not overly priced. There are a few places to eat as well.

A nice, clean shopping centre, however overpriced for Thailand. Prices the same as Australian prices, so walked out with nothing.

Central Festival is a big shopping mall in central Phuket - if you're bored with doing 'tourist' stuff, or it's a rainy day and nothing better to do, then head there for some retail therapy. Usual high-end shops, with lots of little market stalls selling cheaper goods (mobile phone covers, Thai souvenirs, jewllery, etc. Plenty of restaurants and the inevitable... More

After being to the markets and local stalls this wasn't worth the trip they had things which you would find at the mall in your own country nothing special and the layout causes you to walk for miles, prices weren't cheaper than in my own country either
