Phuket Shopping Malls

Central Festival, Jungceylon, Lotus, Big C

Visitors to the kingdom often arrive with empty suitcases and leave with full ones. Clothes, cameras, jewelry, watches, DVD's, computer games, sports equipment, silk, handbags, gold, gems, and even furniture are some of the items snapped up by hungry foreign shoppers and taken or shipped home. Thai authorities encourage this by refunding VAT at the airport (if shoppers have correctly done their paperwork at the point of purchase) and by giving out 'foreign discounts' and even without these benefits and the many discounts offered by department stores on name brands, starting prices are much lower than in the West.

Everyone knows that fake goods, although against the law, are more than available here. Sure you can get a shiny new 'Rolex' for a few bucks but just don't try swimming while wearing it. And after a few hot washes and spins maybe the alligator will look a little more than faded on your 'Lacoste' polo shirt but what about the real McCoy? How does a bottle of Calvin Klein stand up price-wise against the same product in the West? The answer is very well indeed. Department stores in Phuket are superbly stocked when it comes to foreign goods and most have 'Summer' and 'Winter' sales that offer up to 30% off the original price, leaving the foreign shopper in a win-win situation. Here are a few pointers for mall shopping in Phuket.

Big C

Just 300 metres north of Central on the Bypass Rd is another shopping mall called Big C. The outdoor car park (there's also underground parking here) is the site of quite a few clothes stalls and several stalls selling car accessories as well as decorative household goods. Inside the mall is a modest choice of shops and restaurants, a food court and, of course, the Big C supermarket.

Index Living Mall

Close to Central Phuket is the Index Living Mall, which specialises in chic household goods. There are home theatre systems, artworks, bedding, kitchenware and even a few clothes outlets, but the main part of the mall deals in high-quality items such as pans, rugs and the like. And in case you get the munchies while shopping, there's a rather incongruous food outlet right by the cashiers.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 10am to 8pm
  • Location: Soi Chaloem Phrakiat, Wichit, Muang, Phuket 83000, Thailand
