Sukhumvit area and road connects to the widest range of attractions imaginable. Not only is it home to multiple shopping malls, restaurants, hotels and bars but the many BTS stations which allows you access to many, many more sights. Not far off the main route is the infamous Cowboy Soi.

Took their metro in Bangkok to several locations, and they were close to malls and hotels....but my least favorite part of Thailand was Bangkok---just like SF or NYC. I can see the homeless at home!

First time in Thailand and ended up in Sukumvit. I just loved the easy access to the train, the mall and all the near buy restaurants. Will stay there again during my next trip

Maximum renowned hotels of Bangkok are situated at Sukhumvit. The street foods are awesome here. Many world class restaurants and food shops are available here like - KFC, Starbucks, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Subway, Mc Donald's etc. There are many message and spa shops available on road side. Sukhumvit is also popular for its nightlife.

We have now stayed in Silom area and near National Stadium but Sukhumvit area is by far the better area to stay all it missing is a few nice pubs with live music which aren't seedy and maybe a few cheaper shops

Central, lots of activities, good hotels and restaurants, and excellent public transport. The only drawback, as elsewhere, is the chronic traffic pollution. My wife lost her voice the first day because of it , but despite that we spent four wonderful days here, and will be back again before we leave Thailand. Hotels are excellent, and nightime a real adventure... More

Sukumvit is a very long road (it goes a very long way around the country as well as in central Bangkok). the Sukumvit area in Bangkok is a great central area to stay and very handy with the BTS (skytrain) Sukumvit line and many interchanges with the MRT (underground). I first stayed on Sukumvit in 1975 and have never wanted... More

There is so much to do in the sukhumvit area of Bangkok, and excellent transportation should you decide to go further out or in. We were able to see, eat, shop and enjoy many places within easy walking distance of our hotel. That said, I do not worry about staying within the confines of any given area as most of... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
