My Trip



While Patpongis perhaps the most notorious of Bangkok’s nightlife zones, Sukhumvit is the most eclectic and for a lot of the city’s residents, the most popular. An evening in Sukhumvit could involve anything from cocktails at a fabulous rooftop bar, dancing the night away down in one of Soi 11’s internationally renowned clubs, or enjoying the company of some exotic Thai women down Soi Cowboy.

The area is laden with European-style watering holes and traditional British pubs, hugely popular with Bangkok’s expat scene and the places to head for a pint of draft beer and a packet of crisps. Further down the road, past Soi 38 and beyond is Read More...


In terms of hotels, serviced accommodation and guesthouses, Sukhumvit rules supreme, with a rich tapestry of spaces to rest your head while in Bangkok. The scope of accommodation choices stretch from five-star hotels to the affordable, no frills – does what it says on the package-style rooms. In between these extremes expect to sample funky boutique residences and fully-equipped 'service apartments'.

Among the best know hotels are Ambassador Hotel Bangkok, Amari Boulevard Bangkok, the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit and the Westin Grande Sukhumvit.

Sukhumvit is lacking in traditional Thai tourist attractions and although places of cultural interest are present they take a more contemporary face, pushing new ideas of Thai culture and creativity.

The main draw of this area is its abundant eating, drinking, shopping and accommodation choices. Read More...


The choice of restaurants and food styles in Sukhumvit is best reflected by the number of nationalities that live in the area. Basically, you can eat pretty much whatever your heart desires – be it Japanese, Mediterranean, Indian or Middle Eastern. From fine dining to fast food Japanese-style, price ranges vary and allow you the option to dine decadently one night followed by something more understated and economical the next.

Similar to New York, it has an assortment of areas that are devoted to other cultures' cuisine. Soi 11 has a slew of Indian restaurants, while Nana has its fair share of Middle Eastern and Lebanese eateries, and this area Read More...


Sukhumvit's shopping is sprawled out and you'll have to do some leg work to get the goods. The Emporium– Bangkok’s original mega-mall and Sukhumvit’s consumer palace, with every international brand known to man leads the way, while Thong Lo features many independent traders running quaint and funky boutiques and is a good place to pick up stuff that you will not see anyone else wearing about town.
Where Sukhumvit begins (at the end of Ploenchit Road, Ratchaprasong junction) is just two stops from Bangkok’s major shopping district, Siam. This means that boarding the skytrain from anywhere in Sukhumvit will lead you to the malls of Siam in less than Read More...
