Central Festival Mall Hatyai
If you have visited Hatyai for a thousand times and you craved for a new shopping place, you prayer is answered with the brand new Central Festival Mall. It is opened in last December and it is “another mall” in Hatyai.
Located at Kanchanavanich Road near the weekend night market and the Magic Eye 3D Museum, Central Festival Mall caters for locals and tourists.
The mall has 250,000 square meter with 250 retail shops, a frontage width of 185 metres and investment over 6000 million baht. It is the largest shopping mall in Southern Thailand so far as it looks massive.
The mall is spacious and I love the high ceilings and the bright lights. Shopping in this mall is pleasant and there are no short of International and local brands. Hence, apparel and fashion brands like Mark and Spencer, Uniqlo and many others are under the roof.
You can also find familiar International F&B brands such as McDonalds, KFC, Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and many more. If you want to try local food, there are also other food outlets and food court at the lower ground of the complex. You will be spoilt with choices!
There is also the cinema for movie goers and huge electrical chain store from Power Buy Electronics City. Check out their cinema, Hatyai Cineplex offering IMAX and 4DX cinema experience. I am not sure what 4DX means but it sure sounds cool.
Overall you will find Central Festival Mall a great leisure mall to venture. They have almost everything under the roof so you can spend quality times there. There are also many other attractions near Central Festival Mall such as the Magic Eye 3D Museum, weekend night market, Ice Dorm, Lantern festival at Hatyai Park, Hat Yai Cable Car and many more.
The best way to explore Hat Yai is to self-drive and I have included the GPS coordinate of Central Festival Mall below. Remember to equip yourself with GPS (with the latest version of Thailand Map) or smartphone with apps like Google Map or Waze. Self-drive in Thailand is safe and fun!
