Sukhumvit

Shukhumvit Road

Sukhumvit Road with the surrounding area is considered an exclusive district of the capital, especially the stretch of road and its side sois, alleys in Thai, close to Bangkok's downtown. Sukhumvit is Thailand's longest road and one of the longest boulevards in the world. It begins in the capital, as a continuation of Rama I Road and Ploen Chit Road, and ends at Ban Hat Lek village in Trat Province after 488 km of path, next to Cambodian border. In Bangkok, Sukhumvit Road serves as a main commercial street, and consequently this stretch of road is often congested. However, all the Sukhumvit area is easily accessible for tourists visiting Bangkok, thanks to the Sukhumvit Line of Bangkok's Skytrain, which runs from Mo Chit BTS Station through the Silom Line interchange at Siam Square up to Bearing BTS Station on Sukhumvit Soi 107. The sois along Sukhumvit Road are numbered from West to East, the odd numbers to north and the even numbers to south. For orientation, it is good to know that normally the sois do not line up, for example; Soi 29 is opposite Soi 22, and some of them have their own name, as Soi 55 that is better known to taxi drivers as Soi Thong Lo. These sois may also have other own sois, such as Thong Lo Soi 1. The area between Sukhumvit Soi 1 and Sukhumvit Soi 63 is very popular among foreign visitors and expatriates. It is home to high-rise condominiums, hundreds of clothing boutiques, air-conditioned shopping malls, fancy restaurants, tourist agencies, banks and offices. Here there is also the highest concentration of tailor shops in the capital. Accommodation choices range from high standards of five-star hotels located on the main road to cheaper options to suit every budget placed on its side sois. The area also offers the best dining opportunities in the capital with a huge selection of restaurants. Practically every cuisine in the world is represented here, with some of the best Japanese, Italian, Indian and, of course, Thai restaurants in Bangkok, although prices tend to be higher compared to Thai standards. After sunset, Sukhumvit becomes one of the Bangkok's most colourful areas. Both sides of Sukhumvit Road between Phloen Chit and Asok BTS stations are filled with hundreds of stalls selling clothes, shoes, printed T-shirts, fashion jewellery, artwork, all types of handicrafts, as well as a lot of Thai street food. The street is well known for being one of Bangkok's most famous entertainments and clubbing areas, with a wide selection of bars and disco club, as Levels, Demo, Nartz, Glow and Insanity, and rooftop venues like Above 11, Octave Rooftop Lounge & Bar and Cielo Sky Bar. The infamous red districts of Nana Entertainment Plaza, located on Sukhumvit Soi 4, and Soi Cowboy, between Soi 21 and 23, are just next to Sukhumvit Road and full of Go-Go bars, massage parlours and nightclubs for those want a most transgressive fun.  More
