King Power Phuket

Duty Free Shopping in Phuket BEFORE the Airport!

King Power Phuket is effectively the same as the small collection of shops you see just after the security checks at Phuket International Airport (in the international travel wing), only on the scale of a shopping mall. Specialising in exactly what you would expect a duty free shop to specialise in, it is a novel concept which gives you more time and more choice, but with the same prices you would expect of airport shopping.

King Power calls itself the ‘king of duty free’, and it’s not difficult to see why. Quite aside from the fact that they hold the monopoly for such services in Thailand, their range of wares is very impressive. It includes high-end fashion labels like Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein and Pierre Cardin; top-notch jewellery like Omega, Rolex and Longines; cosmetics from Clinique, Estée Lauder and MAC; electronics from Canon, Sony and Apple and much more besides. It’s not just international brands, either. There is an impressive range of Thai crafts and souvenirs to choose from, too.

The difference between King Power Phuket and a shopping mall like Central Festival Phuket is simple yet surprising. Whatever you buy in King Power, you will not be able to walk out of the store with it. The prices for such elite names as those listed above (which make up only a tiny fraction of everything available) are so good because you don’t have to pay tax, but that means that you can only access the goods in a duty free environment – in this case, after passport control at an international airport.

Shopping at the 48,000-square-metre Sino-Portuguese patterned store with its impressive whale sculpture outside gives you the time to browse at your leisure, try on clothes for size and choose from a much larger range of items, none of which you can easily do at the airport. After making your purchases, you can then arrange to collect them at the airport from the King Power counter before boarding your flight home. At the time of writing, only Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport has collection counters, meaning this method of purchasing will only work if you are flying home via Bangkok.

If you do shop at King Power Phuket, you will need to prove that you are in Phuket on holiday and provide details of when you plan to collect your goods in order to make a purchase, so be sure to bring your passport and return ticket with you. The modern and chic mall with its striking frontage is impossible to miss by the side of the Bypass Road, just south of Phuket Town.
