Why Central Festival Phuket is special ?
If you are coming from Patong, Central lies on your left, before the main crossroads as you enter Phuket. Rightly regarded as the shopping hub of the island, Central plays host to over 120 outlets selling products ranging from silk to sushi, from Levi's to laptops, from books to barbecues - if it isn't on sale at Central you probably didn't need it anyway. It's literally possible to spend a full day here - shopping, catching the latest movies, and dining out at the range of international restaurants that offer erything from French cuisine to Japanese to local Thai outlets.
Central has free underground parking in case you have wheels, but if you arrive by taxi or bus it's simple to alight outside and use the main entrance.
What to explore at Central Festival Phuket?
The Central Store is a multi-level gold mine of products ranging from up-market clothing, fashion accessories, silk goods, bedding, household goods, toys and children’s accessories, travel bags, food, and drinks. There are also watch and jewelry counters here.
B2S stands for books to stationary and this well-lit and large store has both Thai and English-language books of all descriptions as well as CDs, and DVDs at reasonable prices. Again, watch out for promotions and clearance sales at B2S as you may be able to get that tome you were searching for back home at half the price. Of course, DVDs are more expensive than at pirate stalls at markets and along Soi Bangla in Patong but they’re genuine and still cheaper than back home.
Situated on the third floor, Supersports is a branch of Thailand’s number 1 sporting goods store. Here, you can buy a wide range of sports-related goods and accessories at prices lower than in the west. Keep a sharp eye out for promotions as they are sometimes highly advantageous and can reach up to 30% discounts. Most well-known sporting brand names are represented here
A large store packed with electronic goods, Power Buy is Thailand’s top home appliance store. Everything, from MP4s to microwave ovens, is stocked here in an attractive layout. Staff members are knowledgeable and informative about their products and are able to steer you in the right direction if you’re after quality bargains.
You’re not likely to be looking for office equipment while on holiday but who knows? Office Depot is the last word in office supplies and equipment in the south of Thailand. Situated adjacent to Yamaha Musical Instrument shop and Siamkolkorn music school near the underground car park, it’s a well-lit and attractive store.
You’ll find countless boutiques spread over the four floors of Central. From brand-name outlets to one-off privately owned shops you can browse through handsome parquet-floored shop after shop. Western sizes are catered for and quality is usually top notch.

Tips for you
We paid THB200 per person to our hotel (Cape Panwa) for a round trip ride to this shopping mall. There are many restaurants to suit your taste bugs. However, do note that many of them do not provide high chair for your babies/infants. You might want to considering buying those belts whereby you can tie/latch your baby (in sitted position) to the back of their chair. I remember they are selling at about S$8 in the Central Shopping Centre (the level where they are selling baby stuff like strollers, diapers, clothings, etc).You can find various shops from IT, stationary, hair salons, etc in this building.
