Can't find a website anymore about Central Plaza Ubon.

http://www.centralplaza.co.th/ubonratchathani/index

It doesn't look like their website has been updated lately. I find their Facebook page is more up to date with events & activities. But seems it's only in Thai.

It looks like their Mid Year Annual Sales is going on now until Aug4,2013.

I have just visited Central Plaza Ubon for the very first time. I found it a bit disappointing. Am I the only one to feel that way?? (Leave out the banks and the restaurants, and there isn't much left, is there?). Must admit, I didn't walk in into Robinson yet.

Disappointing compared to what? Siam Paragon in BKK? Definitely. Compared to any of the "malls" in Ubon, I'd say it's way more upmarket than all of them and nice to haves shops I visit like JIB computers and AIIZ in one place. I found it funny watching all the little farmer couples walking round in their plaid shirts carry no shopping, looking clueless as to what they were supposed to be doing there.

I've also not been to Robinson's yet but Tops has a very good sushi station which is something we miss from Bangkok Tops.

The kid's play area is pretty good, as is the arcade. The food court wasn't though as everything we ordered from 3 different shops all had the same weird bitter taste. We've been to Sizzler three times already, which was something we were looking forward to!

I've still yet to shop in Powerbuy or go to the cinema, but nice to have them here when I need them.

I don't know what you were expecting for Ubon, but it meets my expectations. It's also handy being next to HomePro as it means I don't have to drive all over Ubon anymore to do the usual shopping, I can just go here and BigC and then go back home without almost hitting so many reckless people on scooters as usual.

I also like Central. So convenient for a person like myself who works. Three minutes from my house. Banks are open until about 8 pm. The phone shops are there. Tops is a nice size, in that I don't get lost. I can get my coffee beans from Central America at Starbucks. The little bread shop in front of Tops sells my sort of bread. Tops itself sells wine at about 200 baht/bottle more expensive than I can buy from my shop outside (same brand, same vintage). I find Robinson great. Already I have purchased several items of clothing. The sports shop has everything I want. The book shop the same. Food. I have eaten at Sizzler three times and each time the price has increased. Still I have gone back. The Japanese/Korean/thai food shops don't interest me.

It is the convenience of Central that I like. However, for eating out, restaurants in the city are superior. I will continue to go to Robinson/Ying Yong in the city because it is also convenient for me on Sundays.

Tops is good as it has an additional selection of food that cannot be found elsewhere in Ubon so far! biggrin.png

Save 28 baht (52 vs 80) per pack of filters for my coffee maker compared to Tesco.

It is a nice change to look for few different items than other places.

They are most likely experiencing a bad case of "sticker shock".

I must admit that when I was there, it kind of felt like I was back in my home country.

Yeah we need a Villa Market in Ubon.

In the meantime you can always order Marmite and whatever else you are missing from this company; http://www.buntersfoodsbkk.com/order.html

125g for 170 baht is steep, but how much do you miss it?? Villa in BKK sell the 250g for 280 baht and I bought a few of them over the 3 months we were just there, I was pretty devastated when the bag broke and the first big jar I bought smashed on our condo reception floor!
