  • It is one very unique shopping experience under one huge roof. MBK has been going from strength to strength ever since it's opened. Unless you are looking for real top end luxury products, this is not for that. Anything else made in Thailand or anywhere else from middle to low end, it's all here! It has a very serviceable nice Tokyu department store, supermarket, lots of chain restaurants, coffee shops, local jewellery stores, drug stores, one floor devoted to mobile phone junkies, another a sort of an indoor market which mimics the street ones, except it's air conditioned and so much nicer. That's not all, I just can't list them all here. Go see for yourself, but prepare to get lost especially if it's your first time but don't be afraid. It's huge fun and must I say, a quintessential Thailand shopping experience. You can spend half a day easily, always something new when you turn each corner....simply amazing.
  • MBK center is a huge shopping mall. About 2000 shops, restaurants and service outlets! Very popular with tourists. Clothing, shoes, leather goods, cosmetics, toys, gold and jewelry. But that's not all. Electronics, mobile phones etc. and don't forget the international food hall. Easy access by BTS (National Stadium and Siam). Shop until you drop.
  • Huge shopping mall in Bangkok. Each floor has a theme with fashion, electronics, food, cameras. Great selection of camera stores for me. The electronics and mobile phone floor is crazy busy! If you are claustrophobic or agoraphobic best to avoid this floor as it can get super tight and many of the sales people can be quite pushy and demanding. If you are looking for food head to the top floor for the international food court. Great selection and amazing prices. MBK is worth a visit if you are looking for clothing, mobile phone repairs, SIM cards or other electronics. Easily accessed from National Stadium station.
  • This is a huge shopping mall and you can find almost everything in this mall, starts from clothes, electronics, necessities, foods, etc and the price is more affordable than other luxury mall in Thailand. But you have to explore this mall to have a good bargain or if you want to know the products that they sell because it's so big.
  • The food court on the 6th floor is great. Not really cheap but a comprehensive variety of delicious food. Perfect shopping center for buying souvenirs, clothes, equipment for photography, and many many other stuff.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
