“Must visit, so many things to do and see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

If you really want to see and feel real Bangkok you shouldn't miss Sukhumvit. Many young tourist decide to stay on Khao San Road because they heard about it before coming. But if you are not looking just for a cheap beer and massage, you can stay on Sukhumvit Road and feel the real Bangkok - city of angels. Sukhumvit is some kind of business and shopping center, but still you can enjoy eating street food between modern skyscrapers like ones on West. Between Asoke and Nana station and further on you can find many stalls with different things to buy. During the day you can find food and clothes, but late in the night they change it into toys for adults (Hello Kitty vibrators, many kinds of Viagra, etc.). I recommend you to find a hotel somewhere near Asoke station cause it is most convenient to get everywhere. Nana is well known for prostitution so if you have small kids don't walk there late in the evening.

Most popular shopping centers on Sukhumvit are Siam Paragon (BTS station Siam) and Terminal 21 (BTS Asoke).

“Bangkoks Center Road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Most of the Tourists like to stay at Sukhumvit Area where you find a lot of Shops, Restaurants and even many top Hotels of Bangkok. The Sky train (BTS) has many Stations along the Sukhumvit Road and also the MRT (Subway) have one Station called "Sukhumvit" in the Ground of the BTS Station Asok. If you are looking for a Hotel try not to stay directly in front of the Main Road (Sukhumvit Road) because it has a lot of traffic.

“Convenience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Stayed there for 5 days. Everything was within reach, from the SkyTrain, 7-11, restaurants, Tuk-Tuk, shopping complexes, fast-food joints, etc. And it was quite clean too. A lot of sky rise apartments which indicates the metropolitan-ness of the area.

“The most central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Was there last week and enjoyed Sukhumvit much better than the other locations in Bangkok. The area is large with quite neighborhood at some places. Centrally located to most major tourist attractions including shopping areas. Easy access to sky-train from most places in Sukhumvit and recommended this place very much for accommodation which could be found at any budget.
