Sukhumvit Road is a major artery that flows through Bangkok and our Sukhumvit hotels provide a perfect base from which to explore the flurry of enterprise and entertainment on offer. Splintered off from this main road is a wealth of accommodation, bars, restaurants, cinemas, shopping malls and of course the mandatory delicious street food; you’ll be spoilt for choice.
An essential attraction to see while staying in any Sukhumvit hotel is Jim Thompson's House
. The legendary American moved to Thailand after the Second World War and made his fortune by re-invigorating the Thai silk industry. Thompson disappeared in 1967 but his Bangkok residence is now open to the public as a fascinating museum. The house is a short walk from National Stadium BTS Sky Train station
or for the more daring it can be reached by the high speed canal boat; just watch out for the rogue splashes of not-so-clean canal water.
There are plenty of attractions around Sukhumvit to keep you glued to the area and the restaurants and overall night life rank amongst the best the city has to offer. For bars and clubs, Sukhumvit Soi 11 offers low cost drinks at the aptly named Cheap Charlie's as well as elegant clubs such as Q-Bar and Bed Supper Club. Alternatively, Soi Cowboy is also a well known spectacle in the area but its assortment of go-go bars may not be suited to all. Some of the best food on Sukhumvit can be found at the Soi 38 night market. Here you can graze on snacks, including the mouth watering pork satay and if you have a sweet tooth the brightly coloured and multi-textured Thai desserts are worth a try.
One of the main benefits to staying in our Sukhumvit hotels is undoubtedly the BTS Sky Train which has transformed the way locals and tourists travel around the city. The BTS follows Sukhumvit Road and opens up the far reaches of Bangkok to all who use it while gliding over the traffic below in air-conditioned serenity.
