MBK CENTER


MBK Bangkok is one of the best shopping malls in Thailand's capital. MBK center has everything an average visitor would want to buy. It is a central place to buy all the items that most people buy when they come to Bangkok.Also known as Mahboonkrong, pronounced mah-boon-krong, it is a mall of over 2,000 shops and stalls which is a favourite with locals and tourists alike due to the availability of goods and the reasonable prices. MBK can get crowded and the best time to go is during the week when the crowds are not as bad as those during the weekends.

2nd Floor

Moving up to the second floor, it's here that you can find gold and jewelry shops selling quality items such as rings, earrings and necklaces. These stalls are all grouped together at the Tokyu end of MBK.At the top of the escalators, round to the left, there are some free standing stalls selling fake watches, cosmetics, perfumes and health products.The authenticity of the perfumes, cosmetics and so on is in doubt so buy with caution.The fake watches are on sale but you have to choose from a catalogue and then you'll be shown the watch of your liking if they have it. Watches are graded by categories such as A, A+ and A++, with the latter being top quality and much more expensive. For an "A" grade men's watch, expect to be quoted around 1,800 Baht but aim for 1,000 Baht.

The 5th floor is mainly furniture or furnishings although there is an excellent Canon dealership with a whole range of canon cameras, lenses and accessoriesThere are a number of places to eat on this level but the most favoured is The Fifth Avenue which is like a food court where you are given a ticket upon entering and then you can order from any of the stalls and pay one fee on exiting. All items are added to the ticket when you order. The ticket is swiped at the shop to add the sum and then swiped on exit to total the amount.
