At eight stories high, the MBK Shopping Center in Bangkok is surely a shopaholic’s paradise. With over 2000 shops, this mega mall covers everything from electronics to clothes to food. When in town to experience this, visitors can choose to stay at one of the many¬†Bangkok Serviced Apartments. A good choice being¬†Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites, where one would find spacious accommodation, eco-friendly surroundings, and easy access to public commute.

Launched in 1986, the center which is located in the Pathum Wan district encloses a plethora of daily activity. The five floors at the bottom offer mass sales of clothing items, electronics, cosmetics, jewelry, toys, mobile phones, shoes, furniture, and so on. A note to keep in mind is that tourists can whip out their bargaining skills when purchasing from any of these shops.

The sixth floor houses a food court along with souvenir shops for foreigners, while the top two floors are dedicated to an entertainment arena that offers plush cinema halls, a gaming arcade and modern karaoke facilities for individuals who crave a little bit of adventure. Other highlights of the MBK center include a Tokyu department store that spans four stories, The Pathumwan Princess Hotel and the MBK Green Wall, which is noted as the largest green wall in Thailand. People can also wonder into the more upscale Siam Discovery and Siam Paragon shopping mall which is connected to the MBK center by elevated walkways.

After the end of a shopping expedition of enormous proportions as such, one might be positively famished. For this reason, the MBK Shopping center offers a gigantic food court that serves up mouth-watering delicacies from around the world. This is divided into two sections, namely the Fifth Food Avenue and MBK Food Center. Experienced chefs dance away in the open kitchens of Fifth Food Avenue to produce a diverse range of culinary delights from faraway places such as India, Italy, Japan, and Vietnam, while a selection of exquisite dishes await a more reserved spender at the MBK Center.
