Today I will recommend you a big shopping mall that is not located in Bangkok and is not far from Suvarnabhumi Airport. Yes, it is Mega Bangna shopping mall.
This shopping mall is located in Samutprakarn, a province nearby Bangkok. Actually when I go there, I still feel that I am still in Bangkok (it is just about 30-minute drive from my home which is located in Bangkok).
The mall has only 2 floors, but it is very huge like its name. There are many big well-known brand stores here such as IKEA, BigC Extra, HomePro, Robinson, and so on. Photo below show you a floor plan of the shopping mall, which would help you find what you want easier.
The mall has more than 800 shops, digital cinemas, bowling lanes, and an ice skate rink.
For me, since Bangkok has tons of shopping mall, this one is just another shopping mall. Nothing is special or different from the other shopping malls in the center of Bangkok. But, it is definitely good for people living in this area because they do not have to get stuck in the middle of the traffic in order to go shopping!
Update: December, 2014
Location/ How to get there: The shopping mall is located at Bangna-Trad Road, Samutprakarn Province. The easiest way to go is to get off the skytrain (BTS) at Udomsuk. Take exit 5 and wait for the free shuttle bus. The bus runs from
7.00 am to 11.00pm and it comes every 20-30 minutes Updated May 2017: 8.00 am to 11.00pm and you can check the timetable here.
