When I travel to bangkok 2-3 times a year, I always stay at a hotel on or near Sukhumvit Road in Central Bangkok. The BTS runs along this road, and makes traveling a quick and efficient way to get around Bangkok. Sukhumvit Road has all one needs in terms of sightseeing, restaurants, shopping malls (6), great hotels for both mid... More

What do you want in Central Bangkok? It doesn't matter, it's probably here, unless you want a nice quiet time, in which case you had best stay away. HOTELS, there are many, from the grandest to the lowliest hostel. SHOPPING. From the glitziest world leading malls to the street hawkers. Lots of cheap clothes and watches etc etc with wares...

If you love going in and out of malls, selling all sort of goods, then book a hotel on Sukhumvit, the heart of Bangkok's retail district.

Our hotel in Bangkok was located in Sukhumvit - soi 15, the area is a nice place to walk about, its easy enough to navigate around and had lots of bars, food places and some street stalls Well worth a look when in Bangkok

All the smells, colours and day to day passings of Bangkok, a must walk day or night to take in all that Bangkok offers from street markets, street food and street life. Entertainment for free...... watch Bangkok pass you by

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
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.
