Sukhumvit Road Bangkok

Sukhumvit Road is not only one of the longest roads in Bangkok it is also one of the longest roads in the world. It begins in Bangkok and runs all the way to the Cambodian border.

Bangkok Sukhumvit RoadThis website concentrates on the road in Bangkok and in particular the tourist and expat zones in the West End and Center of the city.

In Bangkok, Sukhumvit Road serves as a main commercial street, and this section is often congested, even at late evening hours.

The Sois are numbered from West to East, with odd numbers branching off North-East of Sukhumvit, and even numbers branching off South-West.

The lowered-numbered Sois are packed with large shopping centres and hotels, including Siam Paragon and Siam Square in Ploenchit, while the upper Sois are a popular residential area for resident expats.

The entertainment areas of Soi Cowboy (between Soi 21 and Soi 23) and Nana Entertainment Plaza (Soi 4) are packed with go-go bars and other places of entertainment.

The pavements of Sukhumvit itself become a huge market, especially at night, where you can buy everything from fake Rolex watches to t-shirts, CD's and craft ware. After midnight they turn into pavement cafes and bars.

Sukhumvit offers some of the best restaurants in Bangkok, from five star to street stalls,

The Sukhumvit area of Bangkok is easily accessible on the Sky train (BTS) Sukhumvit Line, which runs from Mo Chit to On Nut on Soi 81. This line is currently being extended and should eventually run all the way to the main Suvarnabhumi Airport. The Bangkok Metro (underground) Sukhumvit Station interchanges with the Sky train at Asok.

The area between Sukhumvit Soi 1 and Sukhumvit Soi 63 is very popular as a residential area for expats.
