Sukhumvit, Bangkok

4.0
#3 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Bangkok
Experience just about every aspect of Bangkok on Sukhumvit, which follows the coast all the way from the capital city to the Cambodian border. In the capital, street hawkers turn the pavement into a market by day, where you can buy everything from souvenirs to knock-off designer goods. At night, the stalls become roadside bars and pubs. The road cuts through some of Bangkok's wealthiest districts, home to upscale shops, trendy eateries, night clubs, and luxury hotels. You will also find many of the more salacious businesses for which Bangkok is known in the streets which crisscross Sukhumvit's path, along with everything in between. To visit Sukhumvit and get the most from your holiday in Bangkok, create itinerary details personal to you using our Bangkok vacation trip planner.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
