“Need electronics? try here!”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

I have an iPhone3 ( yes...it's old :) ) and the battery went dead real quick. No change of getting it repaired in Europe ( " you need to buy a new one Sir, we don't fix 'm....") and guess what? 4Th floor ( electronics floor) in MBK.....found a small booth where I got a new battery and it was installed in 5 minutes, on the spot, for 750 Baht. Can't beat that!

“What a Hoot”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Everything here you ever need. Easy to navigate but fun to get lost in. Anything can be purchased here from authentic to fake including electronics, clothing, etc. Plenty of ATM's to top up the cash and plenty of places to stop and eat between the frenetic shopping experience.
Bargain hard and you will do well but be nice about it and have fun with the shop owners and remember if later you think you have been 'had' you are just helping the local economy and all is well. A trip to Bangkok is not complete without going to MBK so make it your first stop enjoy and most of all always smile.

“Crazy Big !”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

This place is super big ! and is a shoppers paradise but you can get lost in here too. We got lost about 3 times and didnt care because we were having a field day. Most items you see here will be the same as the guys next door or a couple of shops down but all you have to do is Bargin your price and compare. Simple.

It is worth a visit even if you dont plan to buy anything, the temptation will be there though.

Happy Shopping!

“Shop to you drop”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

The MBK centre is one of Bangkok's largest shopping centres offering 8 levels of shopping with each floor the length of three football fields and offering dedicated areas on each floor from clothes to electrical goods and furniture with a very large foodcourt on the top floor.
