With over 800,000 square meters in all and 550,000 square meters of retail space, Central World Plaza is really a world all its own. More than just a shopper’s paradise, Central World is a lifestyle destination the likes of which Bangkok has never seen – perfectly placed right in the heart of the city. It has everything you want in one place – stores where you’ll find what you need to live a better life as well as activities and opportunities to look, learn, play, eat and even sleep.
You might call Central World a “center of superlatives”. The biggest shopping complex in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong, it will also be home to: the largest bookstore in Thailand, the largest sporting goods outlet – with the longest wall of shoes in Southeast Asia, the biggest outdoor multipurpose space in Thailand with the biggest outdoor LED screens in the region, and Thailand’s largest indoor parking lot.
The new Central World is not only bigger but also better and without question more beautiful than other shopping malls. The style is light, bright and airy with natural light streaming through walls of glass and skylights. Throughout the complex there are wide open spaces with lofty ceilings which are used to display chic art, for exhibitions and fashion shows, or just for sitting and people-watching. For dining and entertainment, Central World’s 50 restaurants serve a mouthwatering selection of international cuisines. There are 21 cinemas with a capacity of 5,000 people, a 32-lane bowling alley with karaoke rooms, a Kid’s Zone and Learning Center, plus the famed Thailand Knowledge Park.
What makes Central World truly extraordinary is that it was designed for real people. It offers the products you want at prices you can afford. As a shopping destination Central World boasts over 500 shops from top local and international brands. And they are not tiny shops or even small corners inside department stores – these are the real deal, with an unrivaled selection of items. You can shop at Central World like nowhere else, thanks to its “exclusives” including 35 flagship stores such as MNG, Zara, Toys ‘R’ Us and Massimo Dutti.
Architecturally stunning, Central World is also the “smartest” complex of its kind. It has been designed so visitors can find their way around easily and comfortably without feeling lost. The walkways are wide, so you’ll never feel cramped, and there are enough escalators – nearly 100 – to ensure smooth flow of foot traffic. If you are driving, there are no less than 18 separate entrances, and the parking lot can accommodate 7,000 cars. There are over 250 LCD monitors and directories and over 40 ATM machines, more than any other commercial building in Thailand. Thanks to this attention to detail and concerns for the needs of visitors, shopping at Central World is like nowhere else.
Central world is conveniently located at the Rajprasong intersection, on the corner of Rajdamri and Rama I roads. 18-lane entrance/exit ramp and connecting walkway to Siam and Chidlom BTS stations.
