“Shoppers' Delight”

Central Plaza Rayong
Ranked #4 of 30 things to do in Rayong

Attraction details
Reviewed 29 June 2017

This week I am playing host and tour guide to friends from Australia. One of them wanted to go shopping for shoes, because as she said, there are styles available in Thailand unavailable back home, plus they are much cheaper here.

I took her to Central Plaza Rayong, which has the Robinson Department Store with a large shoe department, plus Central has several stand-alone shoe shops. My friend ended up buying six pairs of shoes. I think she is trying to outdo Imelda Marcos.

Central Plaza, of course, has much more than shoes. It has a large department store, a Tops Supermarket, many clothes and accessories shops, electronics and IT, a food court, and numerous restaurants, fast food joints and coffee shops.

Today, I am amazed by Thai people's style. Business meeting was planned and I was positively shocked to know that meeting is arranged at one of the restaurants in Central Plaza, in place of office. When asked why meeting here, answer was it is always better to have meeting at pleasant place than office and interestingly, meeting was very interesting and useful.

Central plaza is a good place

There are relatively few foreigners living in Rayong, so the target market is mainly middle-class Thais (the website and FB page are only in Thai). As mentioned under "Passione Shopping destination, Rayong", Central Plaza is the newer option for mall shoppers, making a grand total of two big malls in the city. Being part of the nationwide Central Group of malls, it follows a familiar formula, although has fewer outlets than in bigger cities; the 'usual predictable suspects' re clothing, food, electronics, sport, etc. are present. It is clean, spacious and well air-conditioned. Sadly for me, there is no bookshop selling English books (Asia Books once had an outlet in Passione under that mall's former name, Laemtong, but it closed due to lack of trade) - a reflection on the local customer base. The food supermarket has a range of imported goods, my main reason for visiting. For a more rewarding shopping experience (plus other attractions), locals and expats still go to Pattaya in Chonburi province.
