Top 10 attractions in Sukhumvit – Details of Sukhumvit’s touristy appeal

Sukhumvit is popular among families, expats, backpackers and affluent travellers. The shopping malls, accommodation and nightlife hotspots detail the appeal of Sukhumvit to the tourist.

1

Terminal 21 Bangkok

With a unique theme that manifest several cities under one roof, Terminal 21 Bangkok is a shopping mall found in Asok. The streets of Tokyo City, London's Carnaby Street, and an Istanbul Souk are perfectly recreated at Terminal 21 Bangkok. Tourists can also enjoy a range of seafood dishes at the like-version of Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. The shopping mall has nine floors and all of which are designed in the image of different locations in the world.

Soi Cowboy

Located closely to the Asok BTS Skytrain Station, Soi Cowboy is a red-light district found in Sukhumvit. It is named after the person who opened the first bar in the region. The alleyway has a calm ambience which is what most tourists find to their liking. There are bars and restaurants where you can sit and have a drink. There's no requirement for an entrance fee; however, there's a requirement for an open mind.

Baan Kamthieng House Museum

This is a refurbished teak house located just outside Asok. Bann Kamthieng House Museum is surrounded by modern structures, but it does nothing to tamper with the rustic feeling the place exudes. The display found at the museum provides visitors with insight on traditional Thai life. If you fancy learning about a country's history, you must visit Baan Kamthieng House Museum.

Erawan Museum

This is one of the most famous Thai museums known for its giant three-headed elephant art display. Inside the colossal sculpture is a collection of ancient religious artefacts and many antiquities. Tourists staying at a place like Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel are offered a tour to the museum.

The park has outdoor sports facilities which include a tennis court, a swimming pool, a skating rink and a basketball court. The park is close to the Emporium shopping mall and the Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain Station. Visitors are also able to find a Sukhumvit hotel nearby.

Flight Experience Bangkok

If you have kids who dream of becoming pilots one day, you should definitely take them to Flight Experience Bangkok.
