For shopaholics, a mind boggling shopping experience would be a shopping spree at Bangkok’s Central World Shopping Mall. This is the largest shopping mall in Bangkok and is among the world’s largest malls. Located at Chidlom (“Battle Ground of Malls”) the Central World Mall is directly accessible by the Sky train (BTS).
Central World Shopping Mall is 30% larger than other Bangkok malls and has a total floor area of 830,000 square meters with 550,000 square meters as retail space. An array of products are retailed at over 500 shops while many restaurants and cafes offer gourmet food and drink.

On sale are branded clothing, trendy accessories and jewellery, books and other products ranging from imported groceries to designer furniture. Many beauty salons and banks are housed in Central World Shopping Mall.
The Mall is influenced by the shopping street concept and is designed to allow shoppers to view several store fronts at once. Stunning sculptures adorn wells and open spaces. Zen, Isetan, Super Sports and Toys R Us are among the well-known brand names at Central World Bangkok. The two top floors are almost wholly occupied by restaurants including Thai, Chinese and Japanese restaurants. Fast food chains too have outlets here including McDonalds and KFC. It can be confusing to find your way at this super mall but you can seek help from the security guards patrolling the mall.
