Not to be mistaken with Central Festival East, this 4 storey shopping complex haven is similar to your local shopping malls. Here you’ll find international brands like Zara, H&M as well as Body Shop and Victoria Secret but you can find their local department store Central too, however be prepared as some of the retail stores do still hold on to their international prices.
There is a facility for tourists as they provide free prams and wheelchair usage as well as a lounge and free drinks. It was great for us as it meant we didn’t have to lug around a big pram when we arrived.
Central Festival has lots of restaurants and a food court with various cuisines on offer if you get hungry on your trip. Boasting a whole floor filled with Western cuisines, Japanese and Korean; you can’t really go wrong. If you’re feeling peckish, down at the food mall you can also purchase local snacks and delicacies- may I recommend the fish balls with chilli sauce! YUM!! This is also adjacent to the local supermarket so you can stock up on diapers etc.
They have great parenting facilities with easy access to lifts, aisle that are big enough for prams and changing rooms that aren’t hard to find.
It looks like the locals come here to shop for their mall needs, so if you’re missing out on those big shopping malls from home then this is one to visit.
