Central Embassy Shopping Mall

New Luxury Shopping Mall is now open!

Central Embassy is Bangkok’s first ever ultra-luxury lifestyle mall, boasting an impressive collection of high-end designer stores, fine-dining restaurants, swanky cinema screens, and an extravagant six-star hotel. Built on the grounds of the former British Embassy – hence the name – this 18 billion baht mega-mall projects the capital’s status even further as one of the world’s leading shopping destinations.

Take a stroll down Sukhumvit Road from Siam to Phloen Chit, however, and you may be wondering what exactly the need was for Central Embassy to be built; the likes of MBK, Siam Paragon, Gaysorn Plaza, and Central World are already firm fixtures on the shopping itineraries of both tourists and Bangkokians. So why one more?

First of all, the pristine array of designer stores that greet you as you enter, such as Gucci, Prada, Versace, Chanel, and Givenchy, all quickly help you realize that this is no ordinary Bangkok shopping mall. Here, you won’t have to rummage through piles of unfolded clothes or compete with other bargain-hungry shoppers at everything-must-go sales.

Venture up to levels one and two and the exclusivity continues, with an impressive Vivienne Westwood store, Paul Smith and Michael Kors - for the handbag lovers. As you make your ascent on one of the store’s numerous escalators, you’ll find that prices do drop a little, with the some of the more common high-street names like Fred Perry, Oakley, Lacoste and Zara also getting in on the action.

The place is huge too. Each of the six main shopping floors boast wide open concourses meaning that even when it gets busy, the overall environment doesn’t seem too hectic or overwhelming. As well as being Bangkok’s most luxurious mall, this may just be the city’s most convenient one too. There are direct links between both Phloen Chit and Chit Lom BTS (sky train stations and the adjacent Central Chidlom shopping mall - Central Embassy’s older, cheaper brother – can be accessed directly from level two.

An exclusive cinema on the eighth floor sets you back around 1,500 baht for a single ticket, and with prices like that, we can only assume it will feature huge sofas, butlers and gold encrusted movie-stubs. The six-star Park Hyatt Hotel, which will eventually rise 37-floors above Central Embassy and the rest of Bangkok also helps set Central Embassy apart from the rest of the competition.

Where to Eat at Central Embassy

If designer names aren’t so much your thing, Central Embassy does have another trick up its sleeve to lure you in: food - and lots of it. In the basement you’ll find the excellent Eat Thai, a reasonably priced supermarket-cum-food court. However, for the real culinary extravaganza, head up to level five. Stand-out dining options include the Water Library (where you can enjoy Wagyu Beef or Roasted Duck with Foie Gras) as well as Somboon Seafood (serving lobster, fresh oysters and giant crabs). Thais love their Japanese food too, and the inclusion of Kyoto Lifestyle Café, Yuutaro and Hinata Sushi proves testimony to that fact. There’s no shortage of cafés catering for the sweet tooth either; Issaya, Chickalicious and Audrey Café Glamour all present some ever-so photogenic cakes and pastries alongside fancy teas and coffee.
