One of the worlds largest department stores with a touch of Thai 'creative chaos'

It's a massive center with thousands of little stalls inside. It feels just like any Thai market, except for the nice air conditioning! It's easy to get lost or get scammed. Bargaining is the name of the game. We bought a pre owned beats pill for 800 baht!

Got a nice Armani watch for 2000baht. Got a very well made Chanel purse for 12500 baht. There were other of the same model you could get for a couple thousand baht but the 12500 one was almost identical. Be prepared to be harassed every 5 minute to check out there stall but eventually you just start to ignore them... More

After reading some reviews, I was a bit worried about going there. But my Thai friend recommended it as a place her foreign friends went because they spoke good English. I had a wonderful experience! I paid 2000 baht for colour, wash cut and style (I chose to curl it) for my long hair. The service was fast and friendly... More

This is a must see for shopping enthusiasts in Bangkok: Across five levels and spreading out over enormous floor space, you will find everything from clothing to electronics and from art to souvenirs. On top floor there is a cinema complex and nearby is a food court - cheap and very tasty. The further you go up, the more chaotic... More

I went here only for the Animate store in the 7th floor. It was an amazing experience. There were lots of anime merchandise, mangas and genres. It was a dream come true to look at the signed arts of the mangakas and to enter a legit anime store. The taxi system was also great since you are assured you won't... More

We shopped at all malls and this one is the best for if you are looking for knock offs of the big brands. It has a whole floor of copies of what ever u want. Be prepared to be asked what you want about 1000 times but worth a visit. Food court very expensive did not use.

Went there with some friends for the afternoon for some shopping and food. Its HUGE! Lots of cool things to see. A chance to see and interact with some locals. Some deals to be found, just have to make sure you negotiate with the vendors.

This Mall is huge, you can find almost everything you need with reasonable price. There is a good cinema and various fast foods and restaurants. The noticeable point is its location; which is at the end of a skytrain line.
