Central World, Bangkok, Thailand

At Central World

CentralWorld: The largest Lifestyle Shopping Destination in Bangkok

It is located in Pathum Wan district at the Ratchaprasong Intersection in one of Bangkok's busiest shopping and tourism districts.

 It is a shopping plaza and complex in Bangkok, Thailand. It is the third largest shopping complex in the world.  This shopping complex offers one of the most exciting shopping experiences in Bangkok.

 Occupying an area of 550,000 square meters of retail space and a total area size of 830,000 square meters – that is 30% larger than any other shopping centre in central Bangkok – CentralWorld is now officially the largest lifestyle shopping complex in Southeast Asia.

In May 19, 2010, CentralWorld was one of the many properties of Bangkok set on fire by members of the Red Shirts anti government protestors as they were being cracked down after months of violent demonstration which included complete blockage of the Rachaprasong shopping district. The portion of the complex most affected was the Zen department store and its adjacent annex. The owners later indicated that portions of the center could be back in operation in as little as six months.
