While it is useful to inform the Chiang Mai population about the launch timeline, and proportions of the new mall, I think this specific article goes just a little too far into the realm of promotion. It reads like it should be on the CPN website. [checking website] And lo and behold, a lot of it is – almost verbatim. Just saying, but actually naming the prizes and their quantities seems to me to be somwewhat less-than-appropriate in a journalistic context ("Breaking news").

As is so often the case, the article fails to mention THE LOCATION of the new mall. How about an address?

I'm considering a job there, but I've never been to Chiang Mai. Googlemaps are images from 2011. I searched Super Highway to Lumphun, Chiang Mai, Thailand into Google Maps. Can anyone familiar with the place give me an idea where along the Highway the new mall is? give me a landmark to find on Google maps, nearby hospital, school, university or main road??? Thanks!

Search for "Suvit Rakrod Company Limited Wat Ket Chiang Mai" on Google maps. That is the exact location of Central Festival Mall. Good luck =)

There are some malls much bigger than this in South East Asia.
