MBK Centre was opened in 1986 and sits at a roughly 89000 square meters piece of land. It is a multi-story building packed with 8 floors with over 2000 shops that sell literally anything that you can think of. It is the most renowned shopping mall and the best place to shop in Bangkok. This frenetic mega mall was once the biggest in Asia when it was opened though today many big malls have outdone it in terms of its size. Attracting more than 100 000 people per day, it is a shopper's haven for both the locals and tourists.
