MBK in Bangkok
The MBK Center is a large iconic shopping mall located just off Siam Square at the intersection of the Rama I Road and Phaya Thai Road. This area is Thailand’s equivalent of Oxford Street in London or Fifth Avenue in New York. There are many shopping centres in the area around the MBK Center, but the MBK Center is unique in retaining more the feel of traditional market and being a lot cheaper than the other more upmarket shopping malls nearby. An estimated 100,000 people visit the MBK Center every day, and most are younger Thai people looking for affordable food, clothes and other consumer items. The MBK Center also attracts large numbers of foreign visitors looking for a bargain.
The MBK Center has 8 floors and over 2,000 thousand outlets. The type of shops range all the way from large very modern and expensive Western or Japanese style shopping mall outlets and mobile phone service centres to very small market stalls. The shops are mostly clustered in groups depending on what they are selling:
- Level 1 and 2: mostly clothes shops and food outlets.
- Levels 3 and 4: mainly electronics and software.
- Level 5 and 6: each level has a large food court along with home furnishings and souvenir shops.
- Levels 7 and 8: entertainment zones including a multi-screen cinema.
