“All depends on you”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2014

Good parts and bad parts.

The good -

Location - In the heart of this metropolis and bustling city and is good for access to anywhere in the city with loads of Sky train stations on this road.

Hotels - Many fair priced hotels to choose from with good clean facilities.

Women - Absolutely stunning and beautiful and classy

The Bad -

Prostitutes everywhere - Good or bad depending on how you see it and are.

Westernized - Again hit or miss depending on you, this is a very very modern westernized city, if your looking for local culture this isn't the right part of town.

Locals - Majority i came across are rude and don't speak no English

Taxis - Taxi drivers and Motorbike taxis do not know directions at all unless it is very close to where you are, amount of times the taxis asked me for directions and took me to the wrong places in particular the motorbike taxis not to mention they did not speak any English and again were rude.

Food - Barely any street food down the sois majority of it is fast food chains and restaurants.

Traffic - Absolutely chockablock you cannot move or even cross the road majority of the time for periods of up to 10 minutes.

“Crazy busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2014

Sukhumvit is the heart of Bangkok. Full of traffic, it is a long road that passes through the entertainment, commercial and residential centres of Bangkok. Traffic jams on this road seem to have no beginning and no end!
