MBK Center (Thai: เอ็มบีเค เซ็นเตอร์), previously known as Mahbunkhrong Center (Thai: มาบุญครอง เซ็นเตอร์, RTGSMabunkhrong, pronounced [māː.būn.kʰrɔ̄ːŋ]), is a large shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand.[1] At eight storeys, the center contains around 2,000 shops, restaurants and service outlets.[2]

In 2009, MBK Center management reported daily visitor numbers of more than 100,000, half of whom were young Thai people and a third foreign visitors.[3]


MBK Center was the largest shopping mall in Asia when it opened on 7 February, 1985. It is on land leased from the adjacent Chulalongkorn University. This lease was renewed in 2013.[citation needed] MBK was named after the parents of the developer Sirichai Bulakul, Mah and Boonkrong, whose statues are found on the ground floor. On the seventh floor, it used to be MBK Hall (now the location of SF Cinema 8 Cinemas) a concert hall for popular Thai and foreign singers in the 1980s and 1990s.[4]
