Sukhumvit Road is the Center of Modern Bangkok

Sukhumvit Road is the Center of Modern BangkokSukhumvit is, in many ways, the center of modern Bangkok and not only one of the longest roads in Thailand, but one of the longest roads in the world. Towards the west end you have Ploenchit Road and Rama I Road, but to the east it runs most of the way to the Cambodian border!

The lowered-numbered sois are densely packed with shopping centers and hotels, including the gigantic Siam Paragon and the dense warren of Siam Square opposite it, while the upper sois are a popular residential area for resident expats.

The fleshpots of Nana (in Soi 4 Nana Tai) and Soi Cowboy (between Sois 21 & 23) are also just off Sukhumvit, as are plenty of more (and less) salubrious bars. Also, the sidewalks of Sukhumvit itself become a huge market carrying everything from luggage to fake Rolex watches, and then after midnight they turn into sidewalk cafes and bars.

Sukhumvit Road offers some of the best dining in Bangkok, From 5 star dining to street carts, The variety of choices and taste are almost overwheming.
