Central Festival Chiang Mai

Central Festival Chiang Mai is the first full-scale lifestyle shopping centre and forms part of a triad of new glitzy malls that have recently opened in Chiang Mai – Promenada Mall and Maya Mall make up the threesome. Festival, or Fest as it’s known to locals, is perhaps unique in that it offers a shopping experience replete with numerous British brand name shops that you can’t find elsewhere in Chiang Mai, as well as arguably the most uber-modern facilities in town.

Central Festival

Unlike Chiang Mai’s other more labyrinthine malls – read: easy to get lost in – Central Festival Chiang Mai has been designed to be easily navigated. Its giant oval structure, interconnected by criss-crosses of escalators that are usually full of bright-eyed shoppers (it has become perhaps the busiest mall along with Major Airport), is somewhat stadium-esque.


Dubbed ‘Lanna Futuristic’ in style, Chiang Mai’s second largest shopping mall contains local handicraft products and clothes, but the majority of outlets at Central Festival are modern brand name shops, as well as myriad chic coffee shops and cafes, including a very charming Wine Connection on the first floor where one can pick out a bottle of well-priced wine and wash it down with a cheese plate. Many of the eateries are contained on the fifth floor, and most of these are Thai-Japanese fusion, as well as Korean style BBQ.

Central Festival is located on the Super Highway, just before the turn-off to San Sai, heading towards Lamphun. If you are coming from town drive up Huay Kaew Road and take a right at the Rincome Intersection.
