After finishing my gym work out in Jetts fitness Bangchak branch, I took public bus to go to Mega Bangna, which is one of huge shopping malls in Thailand, located at Samut Prakan province next to Bangkok.

Location and how to go to Mega Bangna
Most convenient bus to Mega Bangna from Sukhumvit area is No. 132 from Onnut to Bang Phli. This time, I cannot find No.132 coming anytime soon on Viabus apps so I hopped on No. 46 instead
However No.46 was not going to Mega Bangna directly, turning left on Bangna road to go to Ramkhamhaeng university. So I dropped off from bus No. 46 near Lotus’s Bangna then walked a bit to Mega Bangna.
They also operate free shuttle bus from BTS Udomsuk station to Mega Bangna. Please check official site if you want to use.
Entrance of Mega Bangna
Several buses coming to this huge shopping mall so you can use for in and out going trip from here.

Mall entrance at the back of public bus stop.
Please go turning to right side once entered mall building. Passing by Major cinema movie theater, you will come to bowling and ice skate place. From here, take escalator to go down to the 1st floor.
Aeon Thana Sinsap branch is at the end of this banking area. Mega Bangna is quite large mall so they have some other banking areas not only here.
Show your ID to the counter staff to enter the lounge area. This time, one group was using the service already.
There were 3 small tables and 8 chairs available inside. Sorry 2 chairs were occupied with other groups so I refrained from taking photo.
Below is the space I used.
Another space can be used at this time.
Nothing prepared inside the ref due to Covid control.
Charger plug can be connected under the table.
Here are the snacks I got. Thank you so much, staff gave me 2 sets while I came here alone 55. Maybe they might want to feed me more since I have bigger, muscular body compared to standard sized people.
Choco pie, pocky and low sugar tea inside the snack box.
Inside the lounge, there is some traditional decoration to display the Japanese culture. Below is the face of “Namahage” which is a imaginary god to go to each family in northern east region in Japan to drive away evil spirits.
”Mari” is a traditional ball in Japan can be used for various plays in old era. Especially “Kemari” is famous to be played like football juggling.
OK! That’s all for Aeon lounge Mega Bangna introduction. Mega Bangna is huge sized mall so when you need to take rest during shopping, please use this lounge!
Oct 2022 visit
I revisited this lounge on October 2022. Since Thailand removed Covid 19 restriction fully so lounge operation got back to normal as before.
Coffee machine can be used now and water is served by yourself from refrigerator.
Snack box is also served by staff.

It was nice to use the lounge again alone, hehe.
Oct 2023 visit
Slightly changed operation recently. Water is not provided by pet bottle anymore and WiFi use guide is desplayed inside the lounge. Same as before Sugoi Japan TV program is aired all day.
