    Indoor chatuchak! you can find all your needs here, especially for mobile phones. Clothes and accessories also go for low prices! Food can be found at higher floors but for great taste and price visit the international food hall at level 5

    If you are looking for electronic - this is the place to go. They have anything most of it is fake. Also watches as fake makeup, handbags,..... It is like a one big fakeland. It is cheap but not the cheapest as they are all used to tourists.

    8 level complex dedicated for nothing else but shopping. I was looking for to unlock my cell phone and to buy a new memory card for my camera and found out there were a whole 2 floors dedicated to nothing but electronic gadgets. Don't buy at the first store you see, you will need to improve your bargaining skills here! :-)

    You go from the street level where there are beggars and elephants walking around to here which looks like a Blade Runner set. Lots of neon and wonderment. Prices are ok, but they know you are a tourist and will haggle if you are so inclined.

    Another HUGE shopping mall in bangkok. The selection is alright and the prices are more than the markets (that being said, the stuff should be real..)

    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.

    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.

    There are over 1000 shops at MBK, though i know many shopping malls around at Bangkok, but you can get whatever you needs at MBK and most importantly, the goods is so cheap!

    MBK is the place to do your shopping and have your food here at Foodcourt Center. You can pay 1USD starting for your food in Bangkok city with nice and good.

    MBK is great... Until you find better places. You can find pretty much everything here cheaper on the streets or more exciting JJ market. Not a bad choice if you're in a rush.

    Il paradiso dello shopping. Prezzi imbattibili e qualità eccezionale. Se si ha pazienza però, i mercatino offrono ben altro e tanta originalità.

    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.

    Huge mall! If you want deals this is the mall to be at. Give yourself at least half the day to go through it all, but the other malls are right across the street as well.
