8 Best Things to Do in Sukhumvit – Exploring upscale Bangkok

Sukhumvit is just bustling with things to do. This area of Bangkok is very popular with ex-pats and tourists alike as it houses many international brand hotels, shopping malls, and nightclubs.


Terminal 21

This amazing mall in Asok is a place you could easily get lost in. The 9 floors of the mall are all designed in a way to resemble world-famous shopping destinations around the world like London' Carnaby Street, Tokyo City and a Souq in Istanbul to name a few. The mall has over 600 shops, a Cinema and an amazing food court.


Octave Rooftop Bar & Lounge

Located on the premises of a world-renowned Sukhumvit hotel and surrounded by many other highly recommended hotels like Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel, octave Rooftop Bar and Lounge is one of the most highly-regarded nightlife venues in the city. Drop by in the evening for amazing cocktails and sunset views over Bangkok.


Soi Cowboy

Named after a cowboy hat-wearing African-American who first opened the first bar in the area in the 1970s; Soi Cowboy has since become one of Bangkok's most upbeat and vibrant red-light districts. The area is more laidback and carnival-like in comparison to the other red-light districts of the city. It's best to visit with an open mind. Entrance to many of the go-go bars lining the streets are free and the drink prices are fixed.


Baan Kamthieng House Museum

The Museum is a renovated steak house that seems out of place amidst the towering hotels and condos of the neighbourhood and seems rather be taken from a rural village in northern Thailand. The museum houses many exhibits that give insight into Thai history and culture, so if you do visit Bangkok visit this amazing museum and get a feel of the local culture and history.


Benjasiri Park

This park is an amazing place to visit if you appreciate sculptures as it showcases some of the finest crafted by Thai artists. And unlike most other parks in Bangkok Benjasiri Park is made to accommodate many sporting activities such as basketball, skating, and tennis and even has a swimming pool.


Flight Experience Bangkok

This is a favourite among the kids. Flight Experience Bangkok is a fully interactive flight simulator and offers a fun experience for kids who dream of becoming pilots. The Boeing 737-800 flight simulator is very immersive and includes a check-in process and a pre-flight briefing.



Both kids and adults will love Kidzoona at Molly Fantasy. Regardless of whether it's too hot or cold outside this kiddie's wonderland is the best place for the kids to let out that youthful vigour. Soft play areas and inflatable slides are only a fraction of the surprises this place holds. There are arcade games for teenagers also.


Benjakitti Park

This 200,000sqm park is located on the shore of the expansive Lake Ratchada. It is well maintained and colourful flowers make the park feel wholesome and inviting. There are jogging and cycling tracks that surround the park.
