The basics

Opened in 1986, the MBK Center is one of Bangkok’s most popular malls, and it’s known as a good place to get a bargain. Over 2,000 shops and stalls are spread over eight floors. Some parts of the enormous center are arranged thematically, whereas others are somewhat random, so give yourself plenty of time to explore. You can find everything from decorative furniture to beachwear at the MBK Center, although it’s best known for electronics and clothing.

Travelers usually visit the MBK Center independently so they can spend as much (or as little) time shopping as they want. Some guided tours that cover the Siam Square area include a stop at the MBK Center, or end the tour here to give you a chance to browse.

How to get there

The MBK Center is in central Bangkok, close to Siam Square. The nearest BTS Skytrain station is National Stadium, and there’s a walkway directly connecting the station with the mall. Siam station is also not far. It’s best to avoid taking a taxi, as the area is prone to traffic jams, but there is a taxi stand and an indoor waiting area on the bottom floor.
