Is Central Festival Pattaya Beach a large shopping center? Yeah, it is. Someone said it is the largest department store in Asia. But it is actually not. The fact is that it is only the largest beach shopping center in Asia. What is the matter about it? No, it does not matter at all. We just want to tell you, that is. Though, it should at least indicate that the shopping center would be a good place for a shopaholic to stay for a while, wouldn't it? Just wait a second before going to shop there. Note that the location of Central Festival Pattaya Beach is close to a very high building, Hilton Hotel, in Pattaya City.
After boards of Central Group believed that Pattaya City was a fascinating location as it seemed to be the center of eastern of Thailand for tourist businesses, transportation, and technology. Central Festival Pattaya Beach Pattaya was then established on 23 January 2009 underneath the proudly announcement, The Largest Beachfront Lifestyle shopping Complex in Asia. Its wideness connecting to the beach is about 111 meters. Five Stars Hilton Hotel was also established next to this Central Festival at the following year.
Central Festival Pattaya Beach is the highest class department store in Pattaya. It offers products from a lot of renowned brands, Swarovski, Armani Exchange, RIPCURL, FCUK, Lacoste, Adidas, Nike, Giordano, Jaspal, and so on. Fashionable clothes can therefore be found in this beach shopping center. Clothes can be found on the ground floor to the third floor.
Electronic products, mobile phones, and book stores can also be found from the ground floor to the second floor. Apple fans can found apple products at I-Studio shop on the first floor, while the majority of electronic products could be found in Power Buy that is also located at the first floor. Since there are a number of foreigners in Pattaya, Book Stores, not surprisingly, also offer English- and some other-language books. There are a few books stores in this shopping center, so you could find one almost every floor, except floor of the Food Hall.
Visitors can find common Food Court at the B floor, where you need to transfer your money into the Food Court Card before buying anything there. There are also alternative options on the third and fourth floor if visitors would like to have more expensive foods.
As a large shopping center anywhere else, visitors could also enjoy up-to-date movies from SFX cinema at the highest floor.
The shopping Center is open from 11 AM to 11 PM. The location of Central Festival Pattaya Beach is located about Soi 9 and in between Pattay Beach Road and Second Road. Visitors could therefore go there by either a little walk or a Song Thaew. Visitors can also park their car or motorcycle at the park, but it will be an hourly parking charge as well (for a car it will be charge after three hours).
