Central World Bangkok is one of Bangkok’s largest shopping complex located along Ratchaprasong Road. It is especially popular with tourists from Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong because it is very close proximity to Pratunam and Platinum Fashion Mall.
Recently, connectivity to Central World was also improved with the new R-Walk (Ratchaprasong Walk) which links Platinum Fashion Mall, Central World, Big C SuperCenter, Gaysorn and BTS Chidlom/Siam.
Before you step into Central World, you will pass by a big outdoor space, usually used to host events and popups. Most of the time, you will be able to find some street food inside such popups.
Central World is so huge that you can find almost everything. In terms of food, you also will be spoilt for choices, there’s no way you will be hungry here.
