MBK Center

444 PhayaThai Rd, Bangkok, Thailand, 10330  map 

Coronavirus Update: Please note that some venues may be closed in line with local government advice. Please check the venue's own website for the latest opening hours and information before making your journey. Stay safe and follow the local authority's guidance in order to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus.

Highly recommended for shopaholics. MBK (which stands for “Mahboonkrong”) has 7 massive floors, offering a market-type shopping mayhem experience.

This hugely popular mall is a rabbit warren of stalls and shops that sell pretty much everything. Great for cheap T-shirts, used designer jeans, mobile phones, souvenirs, jewelry. On the ground floor, there are artists who can replicate photographs as paintings.

MBK has a huge section of mobile phones, with dozens of booths selling ‘pay as you go’ Thai SIM cards (if you’re staying more than a few days in Thailand, then a Thai SIM card can save you money). Dozens of international restaurants are located here, as well as fast food chains – Starbucks, etc.

Tip: Many jeans shops can get alterations for your pants done in just 15-20 minutes if you ask.

    An experience

    “As a first timer in Bangkok, was slightly overwhelmed with the number of shopping malls. Have to say thanks to Travel Gay Asia for including such a helpful summary of where to go. MBK was impressive not because it was big, but because it really is a different shopping experience for a newby tourist. Cheap, cheerful and easy to get lost in, but a huge amount of fun and an authentic Bangkok shopping experience that's not to be missed.“
