  • Place frequented by locals but especially tourists to eat, go shopping! Go to the home to exchange your money for tickets, then make you happy in the different booths to eat! the MBK is a multi-story shopping mall, you can stay there all day there!

  • Super centre, negotiate the price divide them by at least three and often it works. A floor with the fasts food there so the ideal choice to find souvenirs at low prices. 7 floors, it's very big, top!

  • This is the place I wanted to have a CD of the music of Thailand visited the MBK, but jewelry, sportswear, clothing staff, one-stop! We recommend people to see things at once. Everything is affordable.

  • I've been a fan of MBK for almost 20 years. Nowhere near as plush as the newer, surrounding boutique shops. But you don't feel like you are being charged a premium as a result, and the shopping experience is far more familiar than the overly-artistic displays at Paragon or Discovery (not to say they are in anyway bad though). The food court has undergone a major re-design and, spread over two floors, is worthy of a visit to MBK for that alone. A selling point for the mall however is its ability to combine regular style shops with a market stall arrangements.
  • This place is massive! 5 floors of serious retail therapy. Haggling and bartering are the national sport so have a plan first. Ensure you do your research and have an idea of price and what you are looking for. You could easily spend a whole day in here, there are some amazing food stalls.
  • This is an excellent mall. It has everything, even a maid cafe and a Snoopy cafe. The stores are packed very tightly, because it's a Thai-style mall. So, it can be a little claustrophobic. But it's awesome because there are so many different things. It's very conveniently located. There are lots of walkways to get there, so it's still a great shopping experience while raining. The prices are pretty good for such a nice mall.
  • Bangkok is full of shopping centres. The newer ones are close to the MBK, they are all glass and steel and pumped up - and if you've been to say, Westfield in London, you've been here before. Ignore them and come to the MBK. Six floors of retail that you'll want to explore and be able to find a bargain in. It's cheap, it's a little bit naff but it is not an experience you'll have had before if you're used to dragging yourself through the Prada Arcades and bullshit juice shops of the western world.
  • Lots of good food at food court level 6. MBK has the best orh luar, unfortunately on 6 Nov 2016 an incident happened. I ordered one plate of 85 baht orh luar and paid with card. I told my friend to collect it and continue to purchase other dishes. My friend didn't know that the order dish had already been paid for, handled over another card. That stall lady acting as if she wasn't aware, took my friend card and swiped and deducted 85 baht from my friend card. I only realised that the same dish was over charged twice when I did my sum by going through all the receipts. I went back and confronted that orh luar stall lady who immediately called for her boss to refund the extra monies into my friend card without any argument. Which means to say she knowingly knew that the dish had already been paid for, using my card. When my friend presented her card for payment, she could have told my friend that I already paid. Such dishonesty traits is totally unacceptable in Thai culture. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
