Kate Spade bags for 50% off? Coach bags for 30% off?! Yes, you read that right. In fact, most of the branded goods here have huge discounts – and most importantly, they’re ALL world-class brands.
So where’s this place in Bangkok? It’s Central Village, Thailand’s first luxury brand outlet mall located just 40 minutes from Pratunam and 10 minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport. It opened in August 2019 and houses over 130 world-class brands.
Adidas? Michael Kors? Onitsuka Tiger? Swarovski? It’s all here, and more!!
They even have popular restaurants and cafes on-site, such as Laem Charoen Seafood, MK Restaurant and Starbucks. So no need to worry about getting hungry while shopping.
The best part is, for some brands, you get an additional discount if you buy more. For instance, I received an additional 20% off at Kate Spade because I met the minimum purchase amount. As for Coach, they gave buyers an additional 20% off if you buy at least 2 bags.
So if you’re someone who likes buying luxury brands but aren’t willing to spend a fortune, I highly recommend coming here. You’ll get more for less! 😀
Note: Central Village has ATM machines throughout the complex and accept credit and debit card payments.
