    BEST ONE STOP IN PHUKET
    Jungceylon was our favourite stop for shopping,eating,etc before covid 19 put a stop to this routine. Went on a recent cruise trip with a stop at phuket port. The shore time between 7am-2.30pm did not allow us to charter the taxi to Jungceylon and back. We opted to go to Phuket Central. The shopping mall open at 10am local time. There are two main buildings. The first floor of the Festival side has a supermarket,food court and some shops open before 10am. The rest of the shopping complex open only at 10am. The usual names of Starbucks, Wine Connoisseur, Daiso and luxury brands like Calvin Klein,Tommy Hilfiger are all here. I had my favourite pig knuckle with vegetable and rice in the food court on Level one. This single dish is my number one choice in thai food court and has never failed me. The mango with sticky rice is another perennial must eat. The Phuket Central has lived up to its reputation as the largest and the best one in Phuket.

    Fantastic shopping centre for an evening activity
    Great place to escape the rain or heat, or a great evening activity with all shops open until 10pm. Fabulous range of shops and eateries, only wish we’d had more time to check out some of the entertainment options too. A Bolt taxi from the centre of Phuket old town to Central Festival was very cheap.

    New mall yet to be international
    Lots of international brands here. Food mall food options are sufficient. Also a huge supermarket with great variety. Sweetest mango I have tried across Phuket in the small shops. I just think that there should be more restaurant options serving Thai food. Would have been a better experience if so but of course you can go to old town after shopping.

    Amazing mall.
    For an island to have such a huge upscale mall, and so many stores, brands etc was impressive. I wasn’t expecting too much, but they had a lot of stores. I picked a nespresso machine too at a very good rate. Very good mall and lovely decorations as well for Christmas.

    Joyful time at Central
    Damn, this place is really big, I might say enormous. Everything you need was in there, Adidas, Balenciaga, Gucci, Liverpool store and sports. For me, my favorite thing is the football store which contains lots of team shirts and shoes, I bought a France kit and it was great.

Shocking experience! We were in the shopping centre trying to purchase four pairs of Keen sandal that cost 4500batts each , between five of us we have to try to find the size that fits us, when we were almost complete our fitting one of us have decided to try swap to a size up as the one that have selected was a bit too small, we were told by the shop assistant that served us we can’t try any more as we have spent almost an hour trying the sandals, she was so rude and inpatient towards us. In the end we have decided to give up our purchase and go somewhere else that’s willing to provide a better customer service. In fact, the whole time we were there the two shop assistants (male and female) attitude was very poor. The lady that served us did not showed any interest and have been concentrating in playing with her mobile phone. We have been to Phuket many times, and every time we shop at this shopping centre to buy our sovereigns home, since Covid this is the first time we been back. The whole time we were there the shopping were so quiet with very little shoppers, most of the shop assistants including the two we were dealt with were hanging around doing nothing. They could have sold four pairs and even five pairs as the fifth person was deciding of Keen sandals to us if we weren’t treated that badly with no respect. As a matter of fact, the whole time we were there there’s no other customers around trying any shoes at the same time, it’s not like we were in the way when the shop assistants were too busy serving someone else. Besides, we believe it’s reasonable to spend a bit more time in fitting to find the most comfortable shoes that fit as it’s not a 200batt shoe we’re buying.

Coming from a customer’s point of view we believe a huge improvement is required for some of the staff that we have came across in the shopping centre. In a service perspective staff provide great customer service made a big difference to the success of the business. We found the shopping centre presents well, it’s a shame that staff weren’t trained properly as their behaviour and attitude towards customers certainly drove people away and creates bad reputation towards the business.

Lot of upscale stores, just as expensive or more expensive than in our home country. The food courts are really nice, that's the only plus. Wouldn't recommend it, also went to Jungceylon, much nicer and better for middle-class.

There are actually 2 malls connected by a bridge. The high end and suburban mall. For the high end, you get all the brand names, for the suburban mall you get all the daily brands, many eateries and big supermarket.

An average experience for the average consumer. If you're looking for typical, run-of-the-mill clothing and don't mind splurging on overpriced luxury items, then this place will suit your needs. The mall boasts a variety of stores catering to the basic and less adventurous shopper, but unfortunately, it lacks that special something to make it stand out in a crowd of similar shopping centers.

While there are occasional sparks of creativity in the mall's visual design and a commendable effort to embrace modernity, the touchscreen maps seem more like a hindrance than a help. Navigating the two buildings requires a fair amount of walking, and the somewhat unintuitive maps can leave you feeling a bit lost. On the bright side, there are convenient pickup locations for ride-sharing apps and taxis, making transportation a breeze.

However, the outdated bathrooms are a disappointment, and the prevalence of knockoff goods vendors and poorly managed stores is hard to ignore. The absence of gaming shops, modern hobby stores, and a dedicated electronics store adds to the overall sense of mediocrity.

This mall has its merits, undoubtedly, but they come at a (high) cost. It's a decent place to shop if you have no other options nearby, but the lack of uniqueness, coupled with a less-than-stellar ratio of quality offerings, leaves much to be desired. If convenience is your main concern and you're willing to overlook some drawbacks, then this mall might just do the job for you. Or if you just don't care and only want to consume, here is the perfect place my consuming friend. Be a consumer to your heart's desire.
