“Busy and multifaceted”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

As you walk up and down Sukhumvit - you will see brand new shopping malls mixed with street vendors selling you t-shirts and all kinds of junk. You will see high-end restaurants mixed with street food and everything in between. The hustle and bustle, the noise, the smells, the people
from all corners of the world makes this a place cool to visit.

“This is the place where...”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

...where you can see bright and dark side of Bangkok and Thailand. Prostitutes on every corner, white men with their company, beggars, restaurants, street market, pimps...

If you went there for sex tour, this is perfect place for you. If you just a tourist you must go there either. Sukhumvit shows what's best in Bangkok, like great tailors, restaurants from all around the world and great street food. Dark side are obviously pimps. Prostitues are not very intrusive, they are just waiting for the client and if you say "no", they will leave you alone. My mrs was offered their services couple of times, what was quite funny.

We had dinner in typical Thai street dining, atmosphere was brilliant, we didn't aim well with the food, but it was worth it anyway. Try it, you won't regret it.

Reviewed 27 May 2014

if you always want something to do ... you stay on Sukhumvit. If you wanna really experience Bangkok Street life, Full of Vendors, Touts, People that wanna Scam You, People that wanna help you, People that just want to talk to you ... Head to Sukhumvit.

Some people say its the heart of Bangkok, and there not to far off...
