Mike Shopping Mall, Pattaya
Your visit to Pattaya will remain incomplete without a proper shopping. And the place to visit for great value shopping in Pattaya is Mike Shopping Mall. The mall is located between Soi 11 and Soi 12, occupies the entire block between Pattaya Beach Road and Pattaya 2nd Road. It is a chain of multi-story shopping malls, owned by The Mike Group of Thailand.
The place is fully air-conditioned, spacious and well maintained. The mall was newly renovated and the newer mall is on Pattaya Beach Road, south of the Pattaya Klang (Central) Road intersection. Here you will get a wide range of items on sale from clothing, accessories to technology and home furnishing. The shops here are piled up with a variety of items and do not forget to use your bargaining skills. If you want to enjoy the breeze on the beach while sipping your beer, then the open-air beer garden is just the right place for you. Here you can also enjoy the music of the live band.
On the ground floor of the mall, there is a small supermarket, ice cream parlors, pharmacy, as well as money changers and a number of shops and kiosks selling clothes and locally manufactured goods. The actual Mike Department Store is on the upper floor, with a food court and a public swimming pool occupying the top floor and roof, respectively.
When you visit the Mike Shopping Mall you cannot miss the “artist’s row” which lies along the north end of the mall. Here you can get an excellent collection of paintings and live portraits. The lane is full of the tattoo parlor and art studios. Many of the artists have now moved to the Tipp Plaza as this place was demolished in September 2017.
If you go further south along Pattaya Beach Road, you will locate the older and smaller mall. This mall is mostly occupied by private vendors selling knockoffs of branded clothing.
The mall will overall provide you with a better shopping experience, with friendly store owners and a vibe of vibrant Pattaya. The mall also offers a good beauty spa so give yourself a feel-good treat. The mall is open all day from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
