Future Park Rangsit
Future Park Rangsit is a really huge shopping mall on the outskirts of Bangkok. Occupying more than 20,000 square metres, it’s one of Asia’s biggest shopping malls and a shopaholic’s dream come true. An extension called Zpell opened last year, aimed at providing even more high street fashion, food and entertainment options for the “urban Thai lifestyle”.
Some of the biggest tenants here include Central and Robinson department stores, Big C Superstore, Power Buy (an electronics retailer), Super Sport and B2S Books. In Zpell you can find high-street fashion, sportswear and lifestyle brands such as H&M, Cath Kidston, Esprit, Chaps, Uniqlo, Cotton On, Chaps, Adidas, Nike and many, many others.
With over 70 restaurants and food outlets, there won’t be a shortage of options to choose from. Some of the highlights here include Sizzler (great steaks and an all-you-can eat salad bar), Wine Connection (very decent and affordable wine and tapas), Tsubohachi (Japanese food Izakaya-style) and, of course, Baskin Robbins.
There is a Major Cineplex cinema with 16 screens showing mainly English-language blockbusters. You will also find a bowling alley, an ice-skating rink and Thailand’s first indoor ski centre called Ski 365. Featuring three interactive “slopes” with artificial snow, at Ski 365 you can practice either skiing or snowboarding with your own personal instructor. Both private and group lessons are available, with prices starting from about 1100 baht for a one hour lesson including equipment hire. Discounts are often available for two or more people booking together.
Future Park Rangsit is located in Pathum Thani, about 30 km north of central Bangkok. Rangsit is also a major transport hub, with minibus connections to Ayutthaya and Kanchanaburi, and even Pattaya and Hua Hin. These connections are mostly aimed at locals though, so if you don’t speak or read Thai you might struggle. Alternatively, if you’d like to visit Future Park Rangsit, talk to us. We can arrange transfers in a car or van with your own friendly, English speaking driver for a no-fuss, smooth and pleasant shopping trip.
