Central Shopping Plaza Ubon

Recommended Posts

They've been marketing in Amnat Charoen, Yasothon & Sisaket.

Must be sucking in footfall from a very large geographical area.

I think if you had a look around the parking lots you would probably find several vehicles with Lao plates also.

I saw a sign for "Ubon Aquarium" outside. Did I miss that? I hope that by aquarium they didn't mean that crappy fish pond in the mall with only 3 small windows in it.

I expect the fish will all die after all the kids,(thinking they need to feed the fish) throw their leftover food in the tank. Edited by jcb2001

There was a kid feeding the fish his leftover pretzel last night. They are doomed.

Tried to get money yesterday from the banks in central via western union. None of the banks have set up this option yet as it is a "new place" according to the staff.

Useful if you use WU money transfers. Avoid, at least for the time being.

:D

On Friday morning at Central at about 10:45 am, a lady friend wanted to do shopping at Tops. She went to park her car outside the nearest door to enter the Plaza to get into Toys so she wouldn't have to push her trolley too far.

The security guard told her that she had to park underneath. Central's policy he explained was to have all cars underneath and only when that was full, could cars park outside. She argued that this was an unreasonable policy and parking underneath was not convenient to push a trolley to the car. The security guard said he was only doing his job.

She had to park underneath.

I found this policy very strange and completely illogical.

I find people who use multiple user names on message boards very strange and completely illogical also.

One disappointing aspect about Central Plaza which is quite Western oriented, is that they do not have movies in English. Sunee no longer show movies with English soundtrack and I thought SF Cinema at Central would. There have been some good movies in the past 6 months and almost none in English.Posted Image

Agreed gutted.

When asking Central cinema people they said no plans in the near future for soundtrack movies. :(

I parked underneath next to the escalator below Tops last night in case of rain. Pushed my cart to the elevator and right down to my car. One handed with a toddler in the other at that. Strange policy if true. I parked my motorbike the other day at 10:30 underneath next to the door to run up to a bank. They didn't like it when I came back but TIT.

I have only been to one movie in Ubon in my 18 years of living in here. That was at Nevada in 1998 I think. So I am no expert on sound-track movies in Ubon. But I am informed by Ubon High School students, that when a new movie comes to Ubon at SK, they show it in soundtrack for the first two days, thereafter, it is in Thai.

Perhaps Central has a similar policy?

Am I correct in saying that Ubon now has four movie theatres being Sunee, Nevada, SK and now Central. Surely, at least one of these places must have soundtrack.

In the old old days when I was young in Khon kaen and Udorn, theatres had sound-track rooms. Great sound but usually filled with mosquitoes.

That's really disappointing to hear. I enjoy going to the movies and would be disappointed if I had to give it up in Ubon.
