Mah Boon Krong(MBK): MBK Mah Boon Krong - MBK Review

If you haven't seen one of the huge Asian shopping malls then you should go here. MBK Center, an enormous 8-storey marble mall that opened in 1985, is one of the biggest shopping malls in Asia . The center provides over 2,000 stores and services, over 150 eating establishments and a large cinema city. Shopping here, you'll find a variety of negotiable products including clothes, cosmetics, leathered items, jewelry, electronics, information technology products, furniture, restaurants, supermarket, theaters, karaoke and 4-storey department store (Tokyu). Go up to the floor with the cel phones and check it out. I don't think I've seen so many phones in one place before.

Address: 444 Phayathai Road

Directions: Take Skytrain to Station W1(National Stadium) on the Silom Line.

Chatuchak Weekend Market - Bangkok

Chatuchak Weekend Market

Chatuchak Weekend Market: Go nuts shopping. Chatuchak Weekend Market Review

This is the the largest outdoor market in the world, with close to 9000 stalls. So if you're going to buy anything make sure that you give this place a look over. You can get anything for a bargain if you know how to haggle right. Just a warning, there are tons of people and it can be a little chaotic at times. Bring a map and a water bottle as it gets hot. It's open Saturday and Sunday from 7am - 6pm.

What to buy: Anything!

Address: Payolhothin Road

Directions: Mo Chit Skytrain station
