Our 3D2N long journey in Phuket ended with a visit to Jungceylon Shopping Mall in Patong. For the first-timers to Phuket, many have the impression that this place is just beaches and seas. But hey, it’s a pleasant surprise to find a huge shopping mall in the heart of Patong!
The Jungceylon Shopping Complex is situated diagonally opposite Bangla Road and behind Banzaan Fresh Market. The two main stores in the complex are Robinson – a gleaming well-lit upper end department store, and Big C supermarket (it was previously occupied by Carrefour).
The 200-plus other stores in this shopping heaven sell brand-name clothes, spectacles, sunglasses, cosmetics and perfumes, shoes, DVDs, computer games, tons of mobile phones and accessories, electrical goods but it is also a great entertainment haven with a five-room SF Cinema and a 16-lane bowling alley, perfect for rainy days or to escape the heat of the day.
There’s always something for everyone in Jungceylon.
I’m blogging some of the outlets in Jungceylon which are useful for my readers.

Most notably is Robinson, one of the anchor tenants in Jungceylon selling mainly apparels, footwears and accessories.
Jungceylon has too many eating places. You will be spoilt for choices. For us, after scouting everywhere we finally decided to settle on Black Canyon Coffee. There used to be one outlet in Katong years ago but it had since closed down.
Thai-style fried noodles with prawn wrapped in egg sheet ($160 baht).
Stir-fried rice with pineapple and seafood ($180 baht).
Esarn style spicy stir-fried rice with grilled pork shoulder ($162 baht).
All-time favourite ripe mango with sticky rice ($170 baht).
Omelette with rice and mushroom soup.
Stir-fried rice with grilled fish.
Tom yam soup.
BIG C SUPERMARKET
Carrefour used to occupy here previously. We loved to visit Big C hypermart whether it is in Bangkok or Phuket. It’s a great place to find local snacks to bring back to Singapore.
Try out the local delicacies over at the Food Bazaar located at the basement. Plenty of seats available and the additional plus is it’s air-conditioned.
As the name suggests, Kidzoona is suitable for kids. A look at it looks very much alike to any kids explorer. The only difference among them is the size. Yup, we did not enter but we did manage to take many pictures of the surroundings. The area is very clean but did not deliver any surprises for little ones. *Yawn*
Molly Fantasy is a Japanese indoor amusement park for kids. Opened on 18 January 2014, it promises lots of fun and keep your kids entertained. It is similar to Time Zone. So to get fun, you must pay to play.
Remember Neoprints booths? They are a special type of photo booth that produces photo stickers. It is also known in Japan as “Purikura”.
This Sea Adventure game really got Big and Small M excited. It’s easy to play and easy to entertain them!
So engrossed in the game.
Opening Hours: 11:00am to 10:00pm
Location: 199 Rat-u-thit 200 Pee Road, Ban Patong, Phuket, Thailand
