I never like shopping, and I believe majority of guys are like me. Nevertheless, let me introduce you to Jungceylon, the biggest shopping center in Phuket. Jungceylon is located in the heart of Patong, Phuket. It is located just in front of the infamous Bangla Road and is only 5 minutes walking distance from Patong Beach. “Jungceylon” was actually a name for Phuket back in 1511.

Jungceylon is so big that the shopping center has been divided into several zones. They are Silang Boulevard, Sino Phuket, Phuket Square and the Port. Silang Boulevard is a state of art shopping complex. Sino Phuket presents you world class dining experience in the Sino-Portuguese style shop house buildings. Phuket Square meanwhile, is an entertainment plus shopping center. I had frequented Phuket Square during my stay in Phuket because it houses Carrefour Hypermarket where I got my daily breakfasts and mineral waters from. I had also spent 1 night watching movie at the SF Cinema City located within Phuket Square too!

I did not really spend my times at Silang Boulevard and Sino Phuket. Besides the above mentioned zones, the Port is another zone of Jungceylon. And it is also my favorite pass-time spot at night in Phuket. The Port is an outdoor section in Jungceylon with a huge lake and a gigantic canopy on top. The main attraction here is a life sized reproduction of a 20-meter Chinese junk boat. But what really caught my eyes is the Dancing Water Fountain Show and the Amazing Jungceylon Water Fountain Show displayed there every night.
