MBK is NUTS - think of all the street market stands placed in stores and stacked side by side and on top of each other. You need to come in here with a purpose.
Their movie theater is very nice and spacious, though one thing to note (and this is true about all movie theaters in Thailand) is that a brief "tribute" to the King of Thailand will be played before each film, and you will need to stand up along with the rest of the movie goers until the tribute finishes.

One of Bangkok's most popular and largest malls, MBK serves as a great air-conditioned oasis. Here, you'll get an idea of the latest teen fashions and movie releases. But my favorite thing is to walk around the bridges connecting MBK and Siam Paragon (another mall nearby). At night, merchants lay out their wares (knick-knacks and clothing, mostly), and—my favorite—breakdancers practice and break out their acrobatic moves.Recommended for:Foodies

MBK is the sort of shopping center with lots of tiny stalls all crammed into one place. I don't understand how anyone can really shop here. How do you decide where to buy from when every stall is basically the same? How do you not get totally distracted? It's a little overwhelming.

MBK is HUGE.
If you're a shopper like me... this is great... but if you have OCD... you will HATE this place.
It's not organized... the stores are, but the areas because it's SO huge.
Each floor has a different department. Electronics, clothes, shoes, men, women, toys, food, etc. They have TONS of floors.
Elevators and escalators are key.
The only problem is... you find something and buy it. If you want to return it... that's a problem. You NEED to remember WHERE the store is and how to get there and WHO sold it to you. Or else, you won't get a refund.
There are tons of food options. So I love that about MBK. Buy food coupons and then use those to buy food. Then if you have extra, return it for your baht.
Can get really crowded. Be careful of pick pockets. ALWAYS bargain with a independent shop.
