While you may be planning to spend your holiday lazing on the beach in Phuket, don’t forget this Thai island offers some laid-back shopping too. Here are some hotspots worth adding to a shopping expedition!
Jungceylon Shopping Mall
Located across from Bangla Road, the Jungceylon Shopping Mall is a very popular mall. It features a Robinson department store and a Big C supermarket along with over 200 shops selling branded fashion, mobile phones, shoes, cosmetics and more. There is also an onsite multi-screen cinema, bowling alley and gaming arcade.
Turtle Village Phuket
While Mai Khao is an ideal place to chill out at a beach club in Phuket, it also offers some shopping fun at Turtle Village. This complex is walking distance from M Beach Club Phuket and features jewellery, fashion, antiques, souvenirs and more. You will also find plenty of options for enjoying food and drinks at venues like the Bill Bentley Pub.
Central Festival Phuket
Found on the outskirts of Phuket Town, Central Festival is a great place for fashionistas; here you will find brand names the likes of Dorothy Perkins, Zara, Mango, Lacoste, Levi’s and Miss Selfridge. Silk goods, household items and jewellery are also sold at this mall that has a fantasy adventure 3D walkthrough experience as well.
Phuket Walking Street
Set amidst charming Phuket Old Town, Phuket Walking Street transforms Thalang Road each Sunday from 4 pm to 10 pm. It’s a great place to experience a more traditional Thai market where you can not only purchase souvenirs but sample some delectable local delicacies too.
