Bangkok - Siam Discovery and MBK
For a bargain hunter's paradise, head over to the MBK - Mah Boon Krong, which is connected to Siam Discovery by a skywalk. This is a huge 7-storey shopping centre selling all kinds of stuff from leather goods, fashion, handbags, mobile phones, electronics, CDs, DVDs, etc. Basically most of the things you can get at the Chatuchat weekend market you can also find them here, but in air-conditioned comfort. There are reportedly over 2,000 shops in this gigantic place, but who's counting !
Even the skywalk linking Siam Discovery and MBK are turned into shopping zones. It can be difficult to navigate your way through the crowd.

The plaza between Siam Paragon and Siam Discovery is often used for outdoor events. While I was there, there was a free concert for the launch of Toyota Yaris. The crowd was unbelievable.
