Soi 33 aka Dead Artist Soi. It got it's nickname from the bars I'm the street all named after famous dead artist, Monet, Degas, etc.

Across the street is Basilico, good Italian pizzas and pasta. At the top if the soi are some food stalls (@ 7-11) all are good. I recommend the pad Thai stall. There us also one that cooks up the normal Thai dishes, kad pao, khao pad etc and there is also a noodle/rice with roast pork stall.

The Londoner is also at the top if the street, wednesday us buy one free one drinks.

Street Food - Soi 38, Th Sukhumvit beside the Thong Lo BTS station (exit 4). Try the Pad Thai from the Pad Thai stall. The good pad thai stall is at the start of the sub-soi to the right as soon as you enter soi 38 from Sukhumvit road. Very good BBQ pork and wanton noodle stall (try the wheat noodles ) hiding behind the pad Thai vendor. Also good mango and coconut sticky rice stall facing Pad Thai stall.

Restos in the hotel aren't bad (and bad value in some cases), either:

1. The bakery in the lobby has had a long-standing 50% discount for much of its stuff after ~6 PM. The bakery has long maintained a good reputation for quality.

2. Two restos upstairs (traditionally focusing on Indian and Chinese buffet, but with other stuff plus several cook-to-order stations) frequently offer a 50% discount (or buy one get the second one gratis) for lunch and or dinner - for American Express card users. For AMEX users this is a great deal when offered. Of course, check with the restaurants themselves, to see current details, if such a promotion may be on during your visit.

At the corner of Sukhumvit Road and Soi 33, downstairs, is the Londoner Pub. One of the few places in Thailand that brews its own beer on-site. A fairly extensive menu of western and asian dishes. Not cheap, but pleasant when busy-but-not-packed.

On Soi 31, the next soi over, is Antonio's, which I think may be Bangkok's best Italian restaurant: tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g293916-d1…

On Soi 33, Tenderloins is a very good Australian steakhouse. http://www.tenderloins33.com/

Oh Yes, Antonio's is good.

If you want Roast/Peking duck, head down towards Soi 24 (emporium/bts phrom pong) there is a chinese restaurant there (next to Naraya) that is supposed to be known for that. You will also find more street food. The mee moo deang in front of the family mart is good. Also lots of Japanese ramen, yakiniku and izakayas in that area (PhromPong/Suk 24).

Re #6, Bangkok's a big city. What do you like to do? Some examples:

Live music at Saxophone, Tawandang German Brewery (bigger and much more lively than their Singaporean outlets), Tawandang Essarn, Titanium, The Living Room, CheckInn, or a place ("dive"?) like Bamboo Beer Garden?

Events? Check the Thailand Cultural Centre, ThaiTicketMajor.com, movieseer.com and the papers for possibilities.

Go to a park at 5:59PM (sharp, Japanese time, not merely German or Swiss time) dressed for aerobics and evening enjoyment of facilities and vibe (Singaporeans could not imagine an evening in a good park in Bangkok unless they experience the vibe), etc. Parks include Benjakiti, Benjasiri ("across Sukhumvit Road" from Soi 33 and the Lotus Hotel), SantiPhap, and Romaneenart, not merely Lumpini or Chatuchak (and the other parks that make up greater Chatuchak Park). This is best done with a group, but can be done solo as well.

Locals like to go out for meals and drinks, also. Options are diverse, but often include less tourist-trafficked places that they hear about from mates.
