I guess especially when in Bangkok, you wanna spend some time relaxing indoors as well. There are really good places to shop at in Bangkok and the MBK is one of the largest, craziest places there is. I am not sure how many shops they have but it must be some 5000 or so :)

Anyhow, it's a packed place, with a nice food court...

BTW if you are looking for fake watches, the MBK is the place to buy high end watches, you need to tell the salesperson though that you wanna see the watches they usually do not show to tourists.

MBK Center, 444 Payathai Rd., Patumwan, Bangkok

Ranges, but products have medium prices

Opening Hours:
I actually don't think that they ever close, only individual shops close, but they should be open until midnight or so.

How to get there:
Simply take the Sky train and get off at Siam Station. You can always take a taxi as well, it's fast and convenient.
