Department Stores & Malls in Phuket

Phuket Department Stores

Shopping in Phuket is not just about roadside stalls and markets, there is also a growing number of department stores and shopping centres. These stock a large range of products from international and local brand names, including clothing, jewelry, fashion accessories, electronics, home appliances, children’s toys and baby equipment, sports goods, books. Quite a few bargains can be found, particularly if there is a sale on. The larger shopping centres also have supermarkets, cinemas and plenty of restaurants and food outlets.

Shopping Centres

Central Festival and Jungceylon are the largest malls on the island and have taken shopping and entertainment in Phuket to a whole new level. These shopping complexes feature a plethora of shops, restaurants, as well as cinemas and other entertainment. On a smaller scale are the Ocean department stores and Robinsons. These are definitely worth checking out, especially if you are looking for clothes.


Tesco Lotus and Big C, in Phuket City, and Carrefour (part of Jungceylon) in Patong, are Phuket’s hypermarkets. As well as the usual items you would expect to find in a supermarket such as food, fresh produce, groceries and toiletries, these stock everything you can imagine including cheap clothing, furniture and home furnishings, electronics, DIY equipment, all at very reasonable prices.
