I don't get it, your in Thailand,the home of the street markets, street food and something for everyone on every main road or up and down the small Soi's. MBK is just a high rise selling junk and it does not give the Thai experience. Yes you can get food there, but you do not get the real street experience.... More

MBK is our favorite place to shop... a lot of small stalls and shops at the out side of mall and you can get quality items at the mall as well. For those small stalls you might need some bargaining... What we like also is the 5th floor MBK Food Island (food court) where all local food and street food... More

Better place for roadside shopping as it is air conditioned, has both high end and low end shopping, loads of food (food court, fast food restaurants) Great place to while away the time during the hot day. Need to negotiate hard for price at the stalls!! Walking away helps bring down the price :)

If you Love shopping at low cost this is the place. Make Sure you have plenty of time, strong leg, comfortable shoes and patience with the nois. Eating is No problem either. Several restaurants offer a big variety of asian and western food.

It's easy to get here by Using the metro Skytrain. The shopping is always a negotiation but you can buy anything from shoes, leather bags, make-up, clothing, electronics etc. It is an indoor mall and supposed to stay open until 10 pm. We however found most vendors closing between 8.30 and 9.00. The mall has many floors so make sure... More

Most people go here to buy cheap copies of famous brands. I have done it myself many times but after i stoped to think about how the woring conditions are for the people producing this and how wrong it is to buy it I have stoped. Besides the shopping you have gastfood restaurants, regular restaurants, cinema, bowling, kareoke and 2... More
