See all shopping in Phuket
Tesco Lotus303 Moo 1, Thep Krasattri Rd., 83110 Phone: Not Available
This mall was the first major modern shopping center in Phuket and it has goods of a higher quality than Big C - indeed many visitors come from Patong buy Tesco's colourful beach shirts and shorts while the store also has a decent liquor/wine outlet. It's basically a supermarket with a decent toys department and a pretty good electronics section. Tesco Lotus mall also features perennials such as McDonald's, Boots, a good electronics shop, lots of fast food and more ATM machines than you can shake a credit card at.
Upstairs in the food court the amount of decibels hurled at shoppers trying to lunch is almost unbelievable. Even Patong's Rock City can't beat the music coming out of the upstairs CD/DVD outlet, the 'Entertainment Center' with at least five games at full blast, no less that two different large flat-screen movies going at the same time, a 'Guitar Hero' game by the escalator and on top of all this cacophony the store girl makes tinny tannoy announcements. Perhaps the one redeeming feature here is the 'ball room' - a fun activity for small children. Don't forget those earplugs.
