If you are looking for good replicas and prices you can negotiate per your terms than you should MBK when you are in Bangkok. You can find branded stuff at MRP or replicas at almost throw away prices. Also be aware coz everything glitter is not gold, Dnt fall for very low prices. Try to check prices and quality for...

If you dont get any no for that prices except for the branded stores.. not to be worried you will find the same somewhere else.. Ranging for... More

Hundreds of shops, stalls and department stores. Lots of restaurants. Some 200 electric gadget stalls. If you want to see it all, you will need a couple of days. You must bargain in stalls.

In the center of Bangkok you can find at least five big malls and the next they are building will even bigger and more exclusive than the others (ready in 2018). The MBK Center offers you value for money though you have to be carefull that you buy the real stuff. Especially in the little shops you can buy watches,... More

This was a massive mall/flea market type place but didn't think the prices were that great. I'm not much of a shopper so while the rest of our group was looking around we got pedicures and facials in one of the many small salons. Big food court and movie cinema on top floor as well with many options. Convenient sky... More

This mall has everything. It is a mix of stores and shops somewhat like a mall but more like a market. This is a great place to grab some souvenirs and spend an afternoon shopping. Make sure to bargain with the prices at the stands..

This is a great place to go to for shopping for small or bigger items : clothing, IT and technology, souvenirs, jewellery. It is between a traditional shopping mall and a small booth mall but it is huge. The selection is wide from dollar items to high end products, and prices are competitive. Also very convenient place for a quick... More

We came to Bangkok for the first time thinking we get great deals. The prices and the shops at MBK turned rather similar to London ones so did not buy anything. Coming back with empty suitcases
