Sukhumvit Attractions

What to See in Sukhumvit

There aren't many traditional tourist attractions on Sukhumvit Road. There are just a few temples and no palaces to explore. Instead what lends Sukhumvit its magnetism is its modern face: towering luxury hotels, colossal condominiums, air-conditioned shopping malls and entertainment complexes, fine restaurants, trendy shops and world-class nightlife.

Then there are the crowds - an attraction in themselves. Where else can you see veiled Muslim women brushing past provocatively dressed ladyboys; middle-aged European males nonchalantly walking hand-in-hand with exotic Thai women? Each soi, or lane, has its own personality and target audience and endless hours can be spent exploring them. To see multi-culturalism at work, visit Soi 3 (Soi Nana), a Middle Eastern enclave known as 'Little Arabia'.
