mbk is like doraemon’s pouch where you can literally find anything you’re looking for. from knockoff designer bags to t-shirts with a picture of a duck peaking out of a man’s shorts, you name it. for most of the locals here, mbk is probably the last place that comes to mind when you want some shopping done. it’s a very tourist-oriented mall but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some fun and unique things to discover.
for those of you feeling utterly overwhelmed by the number of cafes that pop up when googling ‘top 5 cafes/coffee shops in bangkok’ i may have just made your life slightly easier by rounding up my go-to top 5 cafes in bangkok for you to try. of course there are differences in preferences and i don’t claim to be a coffee expert by any means but trust me to know it when it gives me the ultimate coffeegasm.
if you haven’t already heard soi nana in chinatown is definitely the up and coming neighborhood in bangkok as of recently and i’m sure sanne you can agree right? just fyi, you probably don’t want to be driving there and mrt is your safest best – it’s only 5 minute walk from hualampong station afterall… although that would be considered quite a walk in bangkok standard.

le boeuf is a parisian bistro concept steak house serving some best cuts of steaks (and seafood) accompanied by an unlimited serve of crispy, golden fries. but gotta say their selling point is all in that ‘pièce de résistance’ green sauce poured over the meat.
when you wanna get out of bangkok for a bit but don’t wanna be going anywhere too far, pattaya is probably your safest bet. despite its “reputation” pattaya is probably the easiest place to get to and to be fair it has its fair share of really nice cafes and restaurants. just make sure you avoid the red district areas…
