Seeing it with my own eyes, I also agree with you guys about the fountain and mist effect. It needs to be fixed.

I don't know which is better.
Most shopping malls have their food hall on the upper floor. Only Siam Paragon's Food Hall (that I can recall now.) is on the ground floor and it seems to be doing very well.

I think it's their strategy to not have anything, for big outdoor events.

I think I already post them in the eariler pages.


But those were taken on Friday 21, when it was raining so the whole floor was wet, unlike on the Saturday 22. As you guys complained.

I like both..... the basement food courts are more like the Japanese/Taiwanese mall styles.... but the high floor food courts draw people up (and they pass all the shops and other things (which might tempt them more to buy things)......

There are already those rows of palm trees along Ratchadamri rd.
They are just still dry and brown.

Kill me for not seeing this at first hand . Hopefully I'd be able to come back to Bangkok this year (or the next or the year after that). Please pray for me!! I have to see that!
BTW, I love all your pictures.

Yes...It's very modern and sleek...

BUT!!!!

There're some parts that still haven't been renovated.
Walking around those areas remind you of "World Trade Center" in the old days.

Amazing! I agree the water on the ground around the fountains and mist looks sloppy but I guess that will be fixed one day. Gotta love the pictures, thanks Chad, cHemon, Arewethereyet and if there's someone else I forgot. It compensates for not being in Bkk at the moment

"World Trade Center" in the old days

Let's continue after the forum was close all this afternoon.

I think we already have enough pictures of the exrerior/interior of newly constructed/renovated "Central World".

For the pictures of each stores, I guess we have to wait for a few weeks when more interesting shops open. And Chad is quite busy now.

So I would like to show you the pictures that I can look and think "WOW! that's what it was!!....and this is what it is!!!.. "
