“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

The MBK Center looks impressive from the outside and had some good shops inside. However, there were many stores selling pretty much the same items so not much variety. Worth a look for last minute shopping or to kill some time.

“Great way to spend an eveing”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

This is a great show, professionally put together. Commentary in thai and english. Range of fighters from male to female, experience, nationality. Just get the skytrain get some food in the mall before the show and turn up early for the best view. Best of all its free!

“Large and loud, crowded and chaotic - good for last minute souvenirs”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

MBK is large, loud, crowded and chaotic - and frequented by teens and tourists. However, it is conveniently located at the National Stadium stop on the BTS - so, while I prefer Chatachuk and other markets, if you need a last minute scarf, pillow cover, table runner, or t-shirt, this is the place to go. There is a floor that has a section devoted to Thai souvenir items and I head straight for that floor - only the brave will venture into the crowds and stores on the other floors of MBK!!

“If you've never been here, you're not in Bangkok”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

This iconic mall should be every tourist's destination, at least for a first time traveller.

I come here on every trip and there is something for everyone. Decent restaurants, cinema, shopping, electronics, and train station should you be on the move.

Every taxi driver knows how to get you there without the use of a map.

For smokers, there are convenient smoking rooms available near the car park areas and prayer rooms for Muslims.

Overall a decent mall without the fancy brands but almost every tourist's paradise.
