Found this to be quite expensive compared to other places and be aware that it doesn't open till 10.30am. 500baht to get to Patong and nearly as much to get back to old town.

If you need to shop in Phuket (I don't mean street market shopping) then this is the place to go. Much better than Jungceylon. The car wash downstairs is very good too. Parking can get crazy so take this into account. Very good for banking and foreign exchange plus the Central Department store has everything you would get in the... More

It's waste of time and money. I would not recommend to anyone. All upscale products that we can find easily in our home time. Same brands. Why hassle to buy from phuket and burden yourself.

I frequented here from beach areas as I had rented a motorbike, it was a nice great from the beaches. Browse the supermarket, have a coffee, go to the movies. There are some good shops in the area if you have transport to get around.

This is is the spa/massage place in the shopping centre. Huge sign on the outside of the shopping centre suggests a decent spa experience. It's not as depicted but a decent massage can be had. Negative was that it was quite cold due to air con. Surprisingly, the interior of the spa was basically the undecorated ceiling of the shopping... More

Came here as we read good reviews on Tripadvisor but didn't find what we were looking for. The brand selection is good but nothing extraordinary, the prices were more expensive than here at home and there are not many people around. Got bored soon as we didn't like anything to buy. Visit if you are staying in the area, but... More

Central festival is not somewhere to shop if you are looking for a bargain, it would be cheaper for me to buy clothes in Australia. It is all very clean and all big brand names. Nice for a look around. The movie cinemas are the main reason my boyfriend and I go to central as they are clean and very... More

Its been almost 9 years since we last visited Phuket and this mall, then it was quiet and rather boring. It has since improved however i would say there's lots of room for improvement. The shops are rather ho hum, upper floors were sparsely occupied, we did enjoy the cinema tho. The supermarket was good, offered better choices and varieties... More

Our kids loved stopping by here - not for the shopping but for the food. They found their favourites - Auntie Anne's, McD's, etc all here. The mall is well laid out - with electronics/technology on the 1st floor well worth having a look at. Overall, we found little value to be had here - as prices were mostly cheaper... More
