Central Festival, Pattaya Overview

Central Festival Pattaya is the ideal beach-side shopping mall that stands apart from the bargain stalls and bazaars that line Pattaya Beach Road. At this mall, one is treated to over 350 shops serving international and local brands. There’s also a great food court upstairs that caters to every kind of culinary desire, a department store, and an entertainment complex.

The Central Festival mall spans 200,000 square metres and seven floors. It is situated at prime property along Pattaya Beach Road between Soi 9 and Soi 10. Every Friday, the square in front of the mall hosts a flea-market called ‘Indie In Town’ where you can purchase second-hand and quirky merchandise. This ideal location lets one shop to after a day of hanging on the beach or provides an air-conditioned, retail experience to escape the heat of Pattaya. Understandably, it has become the go-to shopping destination amongst both locals and tourists.
