Bophut has seen much progression over the last 15 years since it was a sleepy fishermen’s village with only two bars and a handful of small shops along its Chinese frontage. The biggest change has come very recently and that is the addition of the Wharf Shopping Centre.
The Wharf is owned by The Platinum Group Co.,Ltd. The project covers some 24,000sqm with a construction area of approximately 20,000sqm a plaza area of approximately 5,000 sqm with 120 units. There is parking for around 400 cars and the Wharf, even though not complete opened its doors on the 10th of December 2014.
With its retro architecture combining a mixture of eastern and western styles, the Wharf provides a unique shopping area with specialty shops offering a range of local and imported goods, cafes and restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries, massage and spa, a tattoo shop, tourism service, manicure and pedicure outlets and a food court offering Russian cuisine, rice and curry dishes, Thai boat noodles and other Thai delights. There is also a bank and currency exchange.
