Head towards the junction to Phuket Town where you will find some of the island’s largest and most impressive malls, Central Festival and Central Floresta. Here you will find loads of familiar clothing brands, sports shops and an expansive bookstore that sells lots of CD’s, DVD’s and stationery among its hardbacks and magazine selection. The department store housed within this complex also offers a 7% VAT refund for tourists. In addition, there are a whopping amount of restaurants to choose from that serve flavours from Japan, China, Italy and Thailand, among several others. Apart from the eateries, you will find several beauty centres on the top of the mall offering service to pamper your nails, hair, skin or even help cutting off weight. Kathu’s local shops serve the community by selling everyday items.
