Amazing Experience to go Shopping at Government Office
Jan 2020 • Business
We went to the Immigration Office for the Entry Certification, and were surprised at the scale of the Government Complex Building 2.

First of all, the Immigration Officers were friendly and helpful. The offices in this entire building will take an hour lunch break at 12:00-13:00. Which means everyone had to leave the offices. We enjoyed lunch, milk tea and spending time at looking around this humongous building.

The enter of the building was kind of day market, which you may get foods, drinks, souvenirs and living supplies. More than 100s vendors to looks at.

It's on Chaengwattana road, it"s quite covenient to go by private car, esp. Trafficr outbound Bangkok metro is very light as compared with opposite position .However, it's tough for taking public transportation from citycenter.I began boarding BTS at victory monument then got off at Mochit station to take Bus No.510 to Laksi junction and walked for 2 kms to the main entance of this huge complex, needed to wait for free shuttle at the main gate or take mototaxi with 15 baht fee to building B.it's very hot during daytime.the Building is huge and all airconditioning with shops,banks, convenient stores.fortunately, I took frre shuttle to the main gate and crossed the big main road to take Bus. No.52 to Mochit BTS station to victory monument.Be prepared if you go by public transportation.there should be much better if there had a raillink system or direct shuttle from the citycenter.

Definitely it isn't an attraction for Tourist
Nov 2018 • Solo
This place is mainly for Thai people who's works nearby and come here for shopping. There's renting spaces that most of the time I visited I found a food and clothes exhibition right next to Immigration Office in Building B.

For Foreigners, they come here for apply 90 days reporting, None O visa, Married Viva, retirement visa and etc.

Talking about certify documents and issues passport for Thais. This is the building nearby called Department of Consular Affairs which is 5 mins away from this location.

If you're foreign tourist.. there's no point to visiting this place.

This is not the place to have certified copy of document.
You come here if you need to renew you visa for example. You have to wake up very early, some people is here at 7 am, doors open at 8:30 am ! They come to queue, put a stuff (umbrella, bag, ..) at the rank, and go sit around. Nobody would touch your belonging, but you need to stay alert.

Tourists,no reason to go here.
Mar 2016 • Friends
As a tourist, there is absolutely no reason to go to The Government Complex. it is about 45 minutes outside of downtown Bangkok. Most of the governments ministries are located here, in addition to the police headquarters, army headquarters, etc. There is nothing to do here as a tourist. Ex-pats like myself go here to renew our visas, and the once a year is about all one can take for the taxi ride there is a nightmare, and the waiting is horrific. To repeat, this is a government complex of many buildings housing internal government agencies. This is not for tourists.
