03. Central World of Bangkok
Central World of Bangkok is the largest mall in Thailand and the third largest in the world. It opened its arms for the world in 1990. The main difference between Central World and Siam Paragon is that it markets itself as the representative of middle class. On 19th May of this year, Central World was one of the many properties set on fire by anti-government protestors. The fire raged for two days and the Zen department store collapsed in the fire. After months of repair works, the shopping complex reopened on 28th September with 80% of its retail space open for business. It has an area of 4.62 Million Square Meters.
