  • It's a strangest place in Bangkok
  • Best place to buy gifts /souvenirs for home. Make sure you go to the MBK section as MBK center is connected to another shopping mall. MBK center is lot's of smaller shops that sell everything you need and you might need for souvenirs. All airconditioned. There is also a floor dedicated for electronics (a bit like pantip plaza but then smaller). Watch out there when buying knock off phones but regular stuff is fine I guess. Lot's of ATM machines.
  • Essentially this place is a giant tourist trap. The wonderful shopping experience reviews are exaggerated. I would suggest going here to just to see the place rather than buying something from here. You know what to expect by the time you are done browsing through two floors. The prices are exorbitant especially for knockoffs! I’ve heard that a lot of people go here for the cheap electronics. I suggest taking a picture of the item you want and buying it off amazon later. Definitely not worth spending money on knockoff electronics and adding excess luggage. The shopkeepers aren’t fun to deal with either. Every other shop sells the same item. If you have time to spend then walk around and see the place. Conveniently located near the BTS sky train.
  • All that you want to see and buy
  • Lots of stores. Dome abondanded for Vivid. Still worthwhile to go.
