Seacon Square Shopping Mall is a very large shopping mall with not much to offer. The only reason to visit Seacon Square would be if you lived close by or just wanted to go for a walk around somewhere differnt, but as far as finding anything that you can't find elsewhere, this is not the case.
Seacon Square shopping complex is showing its age and it's in need of a makeover to make it more visually appealling and to make it feel like a nice place to visit. At the moment, it feels like you are walking into a very low key shopping mall.
Seacon Square is made of up Robinson Department Store which is a poor man's Central or Emporium but sells similar things at slightly lower prices. Robinsons focuses more on prices than on beautifying the store. There is also a Tesco Lotus for doing your weekly grocery shopping. Tesco Lotus is a decent supermarket and its prices are very reasonable but it does not present as well as Siam Paragon, Central Chidlom or The Emporium and you don't have such a great selection of imported products but it's decent nonetheless.
On entering Seacon Square through the main entrance, you enter into the main, large, open atrium which is reserved for stalls selling Thai foods, snacks, fruits and even deep fried insects. The ground floor is host to most international brands from fast food to clothing and includes:
The Body Shop
...as well as a number of other well known brands.
G2000 men's and women's fashion outlet
FQ&L women's fashion outlet
Giordano fashions at Seacon Square
Portland outlet for men and women
Levi's Store for jeans and casual wear
Converse fashions for shoes and casual wear
The over all layout is similar to other malls with similar style shops placed on the same floors, with the top floor being set aside for restaurants such as:
Peking Restaurant (Chinese)
San Francisco steak
Thai Style food court
Other than the fashion outlets, the restaurants and Thai snack stalls, all that is left is a few furniture outlets, opticians, slimming centers and an IT mall.
You've got some game shops selling PSPs, X-Box consoles, PS3 consoles and wii consoles, plus you've go your standard hundred or so mobile phone stalls which every Thai either owns or visits, but it's all lower key. The cameras shops are not as well stocked, the IT shops seem smaller and have less to offer and you don't get the same sense of shopping satisfaction as with other places. Couple this with having to weave in and out of every family without air-conditioning at home and Seacon Square just doesn't measure up to anything that warrants a visit.
It's not all doom and gloom. If you went for a mobile phone, you'd most likely find the one you want and if you want a pair of glasses or contact lenses, you'll be fine, but if you just want to window shop with a few pit stops at a nice coffee shop, Seacon Square will surely disappoint.
