    Nice mall experience!
    Beautiful mall - not particularly cheap, but very nice stores. The gorgeous Apple Store is on the corner in front of the mall. Our concierge recommended a restaurant on the 3rd floor, which we loved... I forget the name, but something like Ko Ki Ko Keh - that's not right, but I recommend it!

    Our recent Best Dining experience in Bangkok
    We wanted to take a moment to express our sincere appreciation for the outstanding service and dining experience we had at Central World Tops Foodhall recently. Restaurant manager Nataleeya and staff Thichapan took every effort to making sure our dining a truly memorable one. We will undoubtedly return to the restaurant during our next Bangkok trip, and also recommend it to our friends and family without hesitation.

    Unique!
    Cool Christmas Market outside! Like the other big malls in Bangkok there are tons to shop for in this mall. But what makes Central World different is the market they had outside. The time that I went there a giant Pikachu and a Christmas market. It was very unique and we enjoyed walking around here.

    Good Fireworks Countdown to 2024!
    We took BTS to BTS Chit Lom station. The CentralWorld countdown is in the front. The countdown area was crowded. We couldn’t see the countdown well. The fireworks were beautiful. The BTS were full on the way back home.

    Huge Shopping Complex with All the Favourites
    CentralWorld is just a short walk along the elevated passage way from the Siam Station. Also connects to shops across the river which is very handy. CentralWorld has wide walkways with all the main outlets you can imagine. Takes a while to complete all the shops, which we did not do, but allocate plenty of time. This is one of the highlights of Bangkok with plenty of options for shopping. I visited Adidas, Puma, Nike and the like with other options for the ladies. There is also a skating rink, how is that!!

    Cool
    This mall stands out as one of the most beautiful I've ever visited. I spent nearly two hours exploring the captivating outdoor area and ground floor alone, and it's worth noting that the mall boasts a total of eight floors! The outdoor spaces feature seasonal themes and include local food stalls, many of which offer halal options. A particularly appreciated touch was the presence of a prayer and ablution room within the mall. I look forward to returning to explore the other floors.

    Modernized Shopping Mall
    Shopping mall is so large and modernized. You can buy everything you want from small things to branded. There are the most famous God statue in Bangkok, God of love and God of success. Pro tip! If you want to be lucky in love, you can pray at God of love on Thursday night 9 PM sharp while wearing red dress!

    Excellent mall
    Amazing mall, right next to Siam Paragon. Loads of shops, some independents, lots of chains such as Under Armour etc and designer shops. My daughter loved Sephora make up shop. Went here three times in a 10 day stay and only relaly scratched the surface. Even if you don’t like shopping this mall is an experience with lots of interesting features, some art exhibitions and so on. Much much much better than anything in the UK and I generally hate malls unless it’s full of zombies but this place was a good experience.

    Confusing but an exhaustive mall.
    Massive mall. Despite being an expert navigator and planner, I lost track of time and my sense of direction. However, being a big mall, it has so much to offer and you can spend an entire day there just shopping and eating many AUTHENTIC Thai food as well. Beware of the massive price inflation in this mall for everything as it is a tourist destination.

Lots of good, traditional eats for cheap in this CentralWorld food court on Level 7, representing a variety of flavors and styles from across Thailand. Had good boat noodles. Also very nice Northern Thai appetizer plate.

One of the great experiences is the outside part where you get to eat and drink some of the amazing food and support locals. What I loved about it the Royal project garden with excellent product yet very economical prices. The top floor with watts and two more shops next to it is a real competition to boots and other flashy names. But if you come to Thailand you really need to check out some of the great automatically branded and good quality. You will find them in fashion mall ,bags ,cloth, accessories and many only made in Thailand not China. The world center is very great for high end food and other variety but certainly not for authentic brands. Remember every thing comes with a cost. Look for hidden treasures mine was the herbs shop and the festive blooming flowers scattered every where.

This was my favorite shopping mall. Although the prices are a bit different and higher than what you imagine from Bangkok, you can buy some lovely goods. The mall is relatively large and has many good cafes and restaurants. It is located next to Siam Square where there are a very, very large number of different shopping malls. So if you do not manage to buy your favorite here, do not worry, Bangkok is the dream city of shopping center! There are still more !! 😜😜

Central World is one of the biggest malls in Bangkok, and is around the famous Pratunam locality and in very close vicinity to Indra Market and Pratunam night market. Though quite big, the mall has all the high branded stuff and is only good for window shopping for middle class individuals. Opposite the mall are 2 huge Super Markets, so if one goes to this place in the morning, it will surely be night by the time you finish window shopping in all these places. There are quite a few North and South Indian Restaurants in the Pratunam area, as well as an entry to the Pratunam floating night market. Rather than the Mall, the locality is quite happening and one can easily spend an evening in this space, also enjoying some street shopping in Pratunam.

Unfortunately at midday on Friday there were no free parking spaces and after driving around aimlessly for 15 minutes I had leave.
This is the second time that I visited Central world and found zero free parking spaces.
In future when I come next time I will have to come by taxi instead!
What a contrast with Terminal 21 just up the road where there is always ample free parking.

It's good to go in and rest when it's hot during your trip to Bangkok. Time flies when you look around because the shopping mall is big. I bought many pretty clothes and props. There are many fresh and high-quality fruits in the mart, so it's good to buy and eat.It was fun to choose food because the restaurant was big and clean.(방콕 여행 중더울 때 들어가서 쉬기에 좋다. 쇼핑몰이 크기 때문에 주위를 둘러보면 시간이 빨리 간다. 예쁜 옷과 소품을 많이 샀다. 마트에는 신선하고 품질이 좋은 과일이 많아서 사서 먹기에 좋다.음식관이 커서 음식을 고르는 것도 재미있었고 깨끗해서 좋았다.)

CentralWorld is a must-visit for my family and me when we visit Bangkok. It has got everything - shopping, cinema, F&B, banks and money changers.

The building layout is traditional since it has been around for a long time. Credit to the building management for making lots of effort to refresh the interior and keep the mix of stores updated.

Other malls have more interesting interior layouts like Central Embassy, Emquartier and Iconsiam for sure. However when it comes to the mix of shopping and F&B options, I do think CentralWorld is no.1.

The bonus is that their Christmas decorations are always top-notch so it is always a nice for us to visit during Decembers.

One of the coolest shopping center with huge variety in the heart of Bangkok. It’s located across the street from big C and superrich headquarters (one of the best money changer in Thailand).. The shops are beautifully presented.. There’s something for everyone! For upscale brands to handmade crafts to electronics.. They have farmers market that sells beautifully presented vegetables and a food court that actually tastes better and in better pricing than the Bangkok street market just outside the mall..
