Jungceylon Shopping Center
Jungceylon Shopping Center is one the largest shopping malls in Phuket, and is located in Patong, right across the famous Bangla Road. Home to the rather large Big C Patong, the mall is divided into separate buildings, which are linked together by an atrium in the center.
More than 200 shops offering everything from clothing, souvenirs, perfumes, accessories and home appliance can be found within the mall, which prioritizes Thai brands and local artisanship over international big brands. Big C is a grocery store which used to belong to Carrefour, a French distributor, and so many international products that used to be carried in the past can still be found today, making it a favorite place for foreigners to stock up on their favorite food.
Talking about food, Jungceylon has a long list of restaurants available for you to try, from the classic fast food chains like McDonald and Burger King to the classic Shabu style restaurant, to French, Japanese and Italian venues as well. Most of those are located in the Sino Phuket zone, a large avenue that crosses the mall from its center to the east exit. You will also find Phuket’s one and only beer brewery, dubbed Full Moon, on the southern side of the shopping center.
Jungceylon also offers plenty of entertainment and activities to do. The first place of interest is a replica of a trading boat sitting by the large atrium, perfect to take a few pictures to send out to your friends. The complex is also home to a movie theater, a bowling alley, an arcade game, and many spas to provide you with the relaxation you need after a day full of shopping.
