Central Embassy

Built on the grounds where the British Embassy once stood, Central Embassy shopping mall is the first ultra-luxurious lifestyle mall in Bangkok. Offering six main retail floors showcasing an impressive range of high-end stores and designer brands, the mall also boasts an extravagant cinema and a number of fine dining options. The huge shopping complex enjoys spacious, open plan concourses that, even when it gets busy, doesn’t feel cramped or overwhelming, making for an extremely enjoyable shopping experience.

Aside from being the most deluxe mall in Bangkok, it’s also one of the city’s most conveniently located mall’s too thanks to direct links on the Skytrain from level two. However if you’re serious about your shopping game and want to be right where all the sales are, there are a number of nearby hotels within walking distance of the mall including the Fraser Suites Sukhumvit and the Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel Bangkok.

Prepare to shop til you drop in this high end shopping mecca with designer stores such as Givenchy, Gucci, Chanel, Prada and Versace greeting you the minute you walk in the door. It won’t take you long to realise that Central Embassy is no ordinary mall with the exclusivity continuing as you ascend levels one and two, where equally impressive names like Micheal Kors and Vivienne Westwood continue to greet you. Head all the way up to the eighth floor where an impressively swanky cinema will set you back 1,500 baht (approximately AU$50) for just one ticket.

Whether you just need a quick bite to eat to keep you going or want to relax and rest your feet with a long leisurely lunch, Central Embassy also offers some fantastic dining options to impress even the most discerning food aficionados. Although there is a reasonably priced food court in the basement, the foodies among you will want to head to level five where the real culinary extravaganza can be found. Expect standout dining in the form of seafood, sushi, Japanese cuisine, cafes, patisseries and more. No matter how you choose to spend your time at Central Embassy, you can be sure of an indulgent experience.
