The beautiful and modern Central World has almost everything you can think of, from furniture to socks and everything in between. There’s also a supermarket, food court, bowling alley and an ultra luxurious cinema in this complex. Of course you will also find several restaurants and bars scattered over the different floors in Central World. It will not surprise you that Central World with its 8 floors and 550,000 square meters is one of the largest shopping malls of Bangkok and of whole Thailand.
Not for bargain hunters
Most prices of clothing have the same prices as you are used to in the western countries. This mall is therefore less suitable for real bargain hunters, although of course they sometimes have great offers. But even if you are not planning to buy anything, it is definitely worth visiting this beautiful shopping mall. On the ground floor there are often special exhibitions, live performances and of course some great buys. The square in front of Central World is often decorated in a certain theme. There are also regular live performances, free and for nothing!
On top of Central World the luxurious Centara Grand Hotel has been built, literally and figuratively a TOP location to spend the night. You sleep in the middle of the busy centre of Bangkok. This makes all the well-known shopping malls easy to reach and the BTS Sky will take you everywhere without traffic jams. And as icing on the cake, on top of the Centara Grand Hotel is the Red Sky. A sky bar with a phenomenal view over Bangkok!
Since 2016, Central World has been connected by means of a sky walk to the low-cost Platinum Fashion Shopping Mall, a wholesaler that also sells per item to private individuals.
