26 Jun Travel Thailand 2015 How to get tourist Cellphone service CHEAP in Bangkok MBK Shopping Mall
The first order of business when traveling to Thailand should be to pick up a cell phone data SIM at the MBK. Come along with us as we make our way to the MBK, locate the DTAC center on the 4th floor and pick up a month of 4G data service for just $13 USD a line.
Don’t fall for small time retailers trying to sell you SIM, or worse a “tourist SIM”, these things are an extreme rip off. Even if you are just in Thailand for two weeks or so, I’d highly recommend just getting a month SIM at DTAC, much cheaper and better service.
The basics of getting a SIM are to take BTS to National Stadium, go in the MBK shopping center, take the escalators up to the 4th floor. Avoid all the madness of the little smartphone dealers, hook a left and walk down till to you find the DTAC center on your right. Go inside, pray someone speaks a little English, and ask for month unlimited 4G data SIM. We got quoted 499 Baht a line, but total somehow ended up to be 860 Baht for both, maybe we got a two line discount? It was quite confusing for not being able to speak any Thai and our first day in Thailand. MBK is crazy! Enjoy!
DTAC Service is supreme in Thailand. We traveled all over Thailand for a month and had full bars 4G almost everywhere we went. From the River Kwai Jungle Rafts Eco lodge that had no electricity, to the Koh Phi Phi Don Relax Beach Ecolodge. I was amazed at the service where we didn’t even have electricity!
