Prices are only slightly cheaper than international shopping malls. I believe its meant to be for Russians or very wealthy customers. If you are willing to spend money buying big brands thats the place to go. But nothing local inside there apart from a Jim Thompsons shop, which is still expensive but probably a little bit cheaper than buying it outside Thailand.

Still, I visited the boots store to buy some medicines and saved a lot of money! ( if you need medicines better to buy them from reputated store so you warranty not buying fakes).

Also bought my contact lenses from their opticians. Were nearly half of the price that I would normally pay so good saving in there too!

We caught a local bus from Patong beach to Central Festival, which only cost 30 bhat per person.

The shopping center is more for locals, so not much souvenirs here. They have Jim Thompson (famous for Thai silk), Swarovski, Pandora and all the nice brands. They also have a business center with banks, where you can exchange money at the better rate than Patong, and a small post office. You can do a lot more in Central Festival than Jungceylon. If you love shopping, definitely worth a visit!

I always wonder why people fly halve-way around the world to visit the same shops and restaurants they have back home. Great are the cinemas and not too expensive. If you like fresh bread try Yamasaki.

Good and tasty variety of restaurants, decent movie theater, nice shops, not as noisy as other area shopping centers. Parking situation is not that great. Plenty of banking options on hand. Hard to find a high chair in any restaurant in Thailand. The mall is no different. Bathrooms have been dirty and not up to my standard each time we visit. Best to visit in the middle of the month since thai payday is towards the end of the month; beginning of the month. It has everything one needs...
