Central Festival, Pattaya
If you are getting a wee bit tired of classic Thailand villages and food stalls and seedy soi's, why not treat yourself to a sensory overload at a huge 6 story shopping mall. The design inside and out is ultra chic and modern, almost the anti Thailand. The stores and restaurants inside cover the gamet from budget to expensive and ultra hip. Great, great place for people watching. Here is a unique experience, go the the movie theater here. Why is it unique? Well, for one, you select a section of the theater and then an actual seat assignment. Also, you have to stand for their national anthem before the movie plays. Very unique compared to western malls.
