    Must visit!
    CentralWorld is a must-visit for my family and me when we visit Bangkok. It has got everything - shopping, cinema, F&B, banks and money changers. The building layout is traditional since it has been around for a long time. Credit to the building management for making lots of effort to refresh the interior and keep the mix of stores updated. Other malls have more interesting interior layouts like Central Embassy, Emquartier and Iconsiam for sure. However when it comes to the mix of shopping and F&B options, I do think CentralWorld is no.1. The bonus is that their Christmas decorations are always top-notch so it is always a nice for us to visit during Decembers.

    Nice place to avoid the heat of Bangkok!
    This mall is huge, like you could seriously get lost in there it’s so big. Very varied selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. Outside there is also a good selection of street food places to choose from. We came back twice and I still don’t think we saw every shop! It has air con too so even on a very busy day or hot day you don’t feel hot and sweaty. A must if you are on a shopping trip! 🛍

    One of the coolest shopping center in the area
    One of the coolest shopping center with huge variety in the heart of Bangkok. It’s located across the street from big C and superrich headquarters (one of the best money changer in Thailand).. The shops are beautifully presented.. There’s something for everyone! For upscale brands to handmade crafts to electronics.. They have farmers market that sells beautifully presented vegetables and a food court that actually tastes better and in better pricing than the Bangkok street market just outside the mall..

    Link from siam
    Nice location not to tight of the people, this is keep for my memory that is close to siam area if you take a BTS this location is in the middle of Chidlom and Siam station, easy to using sky walk direct to shopping mall. I went pass this to the opposite site at Big C center to by a snack for my nephew. Next to this will be plattinum mall

    retail therapy and exercise!
    Best mall in Bangkok along with Terminal 21. It's got everything and because it's huge it's never crowded. I love walking and it provides me with miles of exercise without the oppressive heat and the crazy traffic of the streets of Bangkok. I love the central department store, their womenswear selection is great quality and not over the top expensive. The shoes floor has a superb selection and the lingerie floor is also a must visit. The japanese bookshop on the upper floor of the mall is spectacular. The food court on the top floor is superb and there are many restaurants and cafes for scooby snacks and more. There are lots of the usual international brands and also the better quality Thai ones like jaspal, lyn, cps, charles and keith etc... It depends what you are after really... If you want quality at mid price level you will love it.

    Amazing and Luxury
    With the size of this mall, you can probably find anything you're looking for. You'd better put on your walking shoes because you're about to discover what it means to "shop 'til you drop." Also, it's close to the BTS skytrain station, making it simple to get to.

    CentralWorld (centralwOrld) - the ninth largest shopping complex in the world
    CentralWorld (centralwOrld) is the ninth largest shopping complex in the world. It also includes a hotel and an office tower. The shopping center covers an area of 550,000 m2 and the complex 830,000 m2. It is a great place for shopping due to the large number of shops and variety of goods. If you are planning a trip to Bangkok, it is definitely worth a visit.

    Huge Shopping Centre
    CentralWorld was probably the biggest shopping centre I visited during my four days in Bangkok. Quite modern and with everything you might want to buy, especially the brand names, it was easy to get lost in it's vastness. It is handily located near a rail station.

    BIGGEST MALL
    Biggest mall with a good shopping place and food court. A lot of restaurants, quite in the middle of bangkok. If you would like to go there, nearby Saim station. It offers a nice refuge from the Bangkok heat.

Shopping in this mall can spend a lot of time. This is because this mall is one of the biggest mall in Bangkok. Many branded luxury products can be seen.

We wanted to take a moment to express our sincere appreciation for the outstanding service and dining experience we had at Central World Tops Foodhall recently. Restaurant manager Nataleeya and staff Thichapan took every effort to making sure our dining a truly memorable one. We will undoubtedly return to the restaurant during our next Bangkok trip, and also recommend it to our friends and family without hesitation.

Beautiful mall - not particularly cheap, but very nice stores. The gorgeous Apple Store is on the corner in front of the mall. Our concierge recommended a restaurant on the 3rd floor, which we loved... I forget the name, but something like Ko Ki Ko Keh - that's not right, but I recommend it!
