“Good hotels, beautiful malls, and famous temples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We shopped at beautiful malls on Sukhumvit Road, We also went to many restaurants in the hotels on Sukhumvit. Tourists mostly stay in the Asoke and Nana areas. The areas have good hotels and easy access to the Sky Train.

“Buzzzzzing!!!! Amazzzzzing!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Sights, sounds, smells...for me Sukhumvit is like the pulse of Bangkok city. I stayed in Soi 15, near the BTS Asoke station. What a superb location. To start with, public transportation. The BTS runs along the entire Sukhumvit Road, and there would always be a BTS station near you somewhere in Sukhumvit .The MRT Subway station called Sukhumvit Station is right next to BTS Asoke. Taxi's, Tuk Tuk's, Buses, Motorcycle Taxis's are all there in abundance.

Then the food. So many fabulous street food stalls here. Cheap roadside restaurants and stalls serving authentic Thai Food...delicious.Terminal 21 was a mall where I went so often to eat, as their food court is amazing. There is never a shortage of food, and any cuisine of your choice as for that matter, on this road.

The shopping, right from the crazy street stalls, to upmarket malls, you have it all. I bought some really cheap T shirts from the roads here. Good Stuff. You also have some hawkers selling crazy stuff...but I wouldn't recommend buying that stuff!!! 7/11's, pharmacies, money changers, banks, laundries and everything you need, would be always within 500 meters of wherever you are, on this road.

There a lot of crazy people here too....touts,pimps,lady boys etc. Not to forget that Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza are also located here. So be a little cautious and alert, and you will have a fabulous stay and time in Sukhumvit. I cant think of staying anywhere else in Bangkok.

“Good place to base yourself”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were on soi 4 so right in the heart of the action. Good area to stay in, it is what it is. Busy bars, lots of touts, lots of pretty ladies, lots of not so pretty ladies and if your into them ladyboys too. It's Bangkok

“Excellent place to stay for business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Many cheap service apartment along the Sukhumvit "Sois". Some of them have access to really cheap and good Thai food, e.g. foodland on Sukhumvit Soi 16.

Excellent place to stay for business, as you can easily hop on to Asok BTS and Sukhumvit MRT to beat the traffic. There is also Terminal 21 shopping mall nearby for upmarket shopping and dining and business entertainment.
