There are two really big, modern malls in Chiang Mai: Central Plaza by the airport and Central Festival on the other side of town, which is the bigger of the two. If you have a hankering for some mall hopping, there is a very convenient...More

Chiang Mai is known for its outdoor markets but Central Festival is more of a Western style mall. It has six levels with stores like H&M, Bata, Adidas, etc. There’s a Marks & Spencer, which I haven’t seen in years and is tough to find....More

I was not expecting the size of this place, it looks massive, but it’s even bigger than that. I spent 3 hours here, just walking around and browsing and having some lunch. 5 floors of everything, from dining, ice skating, arcades, hair salons, shops, buying...More

There is an almost luxurious van (10 seater?) that picks up passengers from the night market area and takes them to Central Festival. It's a nondescript grey van and there are no markings other than a small handwritten sign on the windshield that says "Route...More
