MBK, on the other hand, in the heart of central Bangkok (very near SIAM skytrain station) is very first-world, with everything a Western shopper would dream of (BUT IN THAI PRICES). MBK has eight air-conditioned levels, each expanding in a pretty vast space, with hundreds of shops at each level.
You can find numerous banks and money-changing outlets, restaurants to cater to every palate and budget, from the usual Western culprits (McDonalds, etc.) to the truly exotic, and there are mobile phone and accessories shops (100s), videos, TVs, cameras, and other electronic equipment, clothing at bargain prices, souvenir and gift shops, countless cafeterias (including the usual Western Starbucks, etc.), and even massage centers to help you relax from shopping fatigue.

I think that I spent most of my time in Bangkok inside this shopping centre. With eight floors and thousand’s of shops it was really well designed with each level carrying a particular item or line.
For example the first three levels had all the "normal" Thai shops selling clothing, shoes, belts and all types of clothing. Although you need to be fairly small to fit Asian sizes.
On another floor the whole level covers mobile phones, new and second hand with all the accessories. My poor old mobile had been so badly knocked about, I had it rebuilt there with a whole new cover and new LCD screen for less than the cost for someone to even look at it at home.
Level three was great if you don’t want to carry your souvenirs with you when traveling as it had a huge range of carvings, paintings and fake "brand" name clothing aimed at the tourist market. I think it was more expensive than you would find elsewhere.
The centre also contains a huge department store called Tokyu with the most incredible shoes (sorry, my fetish), amongst other items that I have ever seen.
To get here, take the Skytrain to Station W1, on the Silom Line. The Station W1 is connected by a footbridge to Tokyo Department Store, and from there, you can access to MBK Center.

We went shopping for a mobile phone on the 4th floor that was filled with many vendors offering mobile phones. We had information that a GSM tri-band phone would work all around the globe. But we were misinformed of the tri-band model. After going around to many merchants, comparing the wrong model on price, we suspended purchase of the phone, as the center closes at 9pm.
On the 6th floor there was a food court, but it was closed for the day. On the top floor there is a cineplex for movies. We stopped to eat at one of the many restaurants to eat, afterwards purchased a music CD at a music/video store.
