Except for the Jim Thompson store, there’s hardly anything there worth your time. Very few shops and restaurants.

We went there because our resort provided shuttle there. However, there wasn't much activity there. There was only one restaurant which sold overpriced Thai and western food. The only selling point is the family mart. Will recommend to just pay 200 baht to Boat Avenue...More

Nice surrounding, great us patterned neighbourhood compact mall but with a pathetic lack of variety or vibrancy. The place needs a major overhaul and not remain an essentially souvenier ghetto.

The family mart is a mini mart offering SIM card at half the airport price. There's also a currency exchanger offering very good rates with no fees.

You’re better off catching a cab for 200 baht to just outside Laguna. Give this place a miss unless you’re wanting a coffee or Movenpick ice-cream (and you can catch the Laguna shuttle or boat). Very poor selection of shops.

The supermarket is great for wine and snacks to take back to your accommodation. We visited the doctor (one kid had an ear infection) and they were great too, though pricey (AU$220 for visit!)

Lots of empty shops, a few specialist stores and Cafes etc. Very salubrious setting with ferry service from the Plethora of 'time share' condos that surround the lakes. Best was the Family store as it had groceries at reasonable prices.

Convenient as it is only 5 minutes walk. The café at the end overlooks the lake and the hotels on the other side - breathtaking especially during sunset. The view during sunset must not be missed. There is a jetty here where you can hop...More

This is a rather upmarket, "boutique-focused" shopping centre, servicing the Laguna Complex. Plenty of VERY nice shops, catering for everything you might reasonably need (including a remarkably well-stocked supermarket!) Some very nice cafes, and a pretty impressive Medical Centre (since there are permanently-occupied residential apartments...More

Love this little shopping centre, however there are currently a few empty shops. Staff in the remaining shops are friendly and helpful. The staff in the Family Mart have been particularly helpful. Great atmosphere.
