<> Sukhumvit

Top

Sukhumvit zone is mainly retail tourism with excellent transport to access to other zones


Thanon Sukhumvit is Bangkok's longest road – it keeps going east all the way to Cambodia – but for such an important artery it's way too narrow for the volume of traffic that needs to use it, and is further hemmed in by the overhead Skytrain line. 


The tourism sector of "Sukhumvit" is an exclusive district in Bangkok, home to fancy apartments, villas, restaurants, bars and clubs.

Popular among foreign visitors and expats, it becomes more and more a Thai residential neighborhood as you follow the road southeast. Khlong Toey (also known as "the slaughterhouse") is nearby, ironically, it's one of the poorest neighborhoods of Bangkok
