A Day Out With the Family
Start off with a healthy lunch of Thai food that suits all palates, grab a cheap sweet Bingsu then head off to Central Festival for an afternoon showing in the 4DX cinema!
4DX Cinema-Major Cineplex Central Festival
Rumble, whoosh, splash, shake. What if your film came alive when you watched it? Bullets and glass jump out towards your face in 3D. Your face is sprayed the instant a villian jumps into the water. Your chair shakes along with the sound of an explosion, and you get a quick jab in the back as the hero on screen is punched in the kidneys.
Major Cineplex’s 4DX Cinema, the only one of its kind in the north of Thailand, is an experience that will make you feel as though you are part of the movie. Packed with mostly-action films for best effect, hold onto your popcorn and prepare for a roller-coaster experience that takes you deep into the heart of the film, immersing you with the feelings and the excitement on a whole new level. Check the weekly schedules online or at the cinema itself to find out what exciting film is showing on 4DX today.

Bingsu, the soft milk snow dessert from Korea, is all the rage in Chiang Mai now, but for most of us, one bowl is too much on the stomach…and the wallet. But now we can all enjoy Bingsu from just 30 baht a pop! Just bring a few coins and you’ll be able to tuck into a range of toppings such as strawberry, mango, Oreo, red bean and cracker nuts. Each topping is homemade (apart from the Oreos) and chemical free, and perfect for kids! SnoowinG uses traditional Bingsu bowls and spoons imported from Korea, as is the machine that makes the famous milk snow. If you are with a date, why not share a large bowl of Love Story, topped with strawberry and moulded into a heart shape. And if that wasn’t enough to tempt you, don’t forget the hidden buttery crumble found in each and every bowl.
Open 10am – 8pm
Floor B1, Lad Suan Kaew lot no. 21, near Hot Pot
