Central Marina, Pattaya, Pattaya Overview

Central Marina Pattaya is a popular shopping mall situated in the Bang Lamung district of Pattaya. The mall is spread over three floors and houses several retail stores and eateries with a six-screen SFC Cinema for entertaining the visitors. The children are kept engaged at the play area within the shopping arcade while their parents indulge in shopping.

Known as Central Center Pattaya originally, this mall has undergone extensive renovation recently to be transformed into a swanky shopping area that can be termed as a one stop shop. Central Marina in Pattaya was the first shopping center owned by the private company CPN to be opened to the public on the Pattaya Beach area. The huge sign welcoming the visitors resembles an watch tower while a grand and ornate chandelier hanging from the ceiling near its front entrance makes the entry truly spectacular. Watching the live band play music in the evenings is an attraction that few want to miss when at the mall.

How To Reach Central Marina Pattaya

The Central Marina Pattaya is located on the Pattaya Sai 2 Road with the beach being within reach. Locals prefer to take a ride on the buses that follow a circular road and goes past almost all attractions of the city. Yet others prefer hiring songthaews or the pickup trucks used as buses by paying THB 10 for a local trip to the mall. Tourists can also opt for metered taxis or settle the price by haggling with the driver. Single visitors can choose to rent motorcycles or electric bicycles, the best form of transportation to weave through the traffic.
