Up Coming Events

Maya Lifestyle Shopping Center

Today heralds a major milestone for Chiang Mai with the opening of the much vaunted Maya Lifestyle Shopping Center. Unlike several other recent openings, Central Festival and Promenanda outside the city on the eastern side of the superhighway, Maya is slap bang in the centre of the cosmopolitan city area around Nimmanhaeminda and Chang Puek. Located also close to university and student areas it is likely to prove an instant hit and popular with the gay crowd.Maya Shopping Mall - Chiang Mai

Maya is billed as a lifestyle shopping center and is as much a dining and entertainment venue as a place to shop. Highlights include Nimman Hill, the sixth floor rooftop terrace and gardens with fabulous views over Chiang Mai city. The fifth floor is dedicated to the luxury SFX cinema whilst floor four is the food Bazaar. Floor 3 is “Digitech Street” whilst floors 1 and 2 are general shopping, “Stylish Venue” and “Cosmo Boulevard” respectively. The basement, “Strolling Mart” includes one of the anchor stores – Rimping Supermarket which will be a sure hit for the many westerners living in the north west of the city. Restaurants include Shabu Shi by Oishi (Oishi Tea are behind the Maya project), Black Canyon – Cafeinteria, Fuji, Starbucks and many, many more.

The opening runs from today through to 25th
