Central World Plaza, Bangkok, Destroyed by the Red Shirt Protest May 19th 2010
Central World Plaza was located in Pathum Wan district at the Ratchaprasong Intersection
in one of Bangkok's busiest shopping and tourism districts.
Nearby Shopping Centres and Attractions included Gaysorn, Big C Ratchadamri, the
Erawan Shrine, Amarin Plaza, Central Chitlom, Siam Paragon, Siam Centre, Siam Discovery
Centre, Siam Square, MBK Centre, Platinum Fashion Mall, Pantip Plaza, Chamchuri Square,
Chulalongkorn University, the Royal Police Headquarter, and Wat Pathum Wanaram.
The video’s on the right show the dream that made Central World Plaza special to
all that shopped there and the video below the result of the protest. This fire not
only destroyed a great shopping mall but destroyed many people’s livelihoods through
having lost all the items of stock held in the shops there.
