5 Must-Visit Places in Sukhumvit - Top 5 Attractions in Sukhumvit

As one of the Thai capital's most popular areas, Sukhumvit offers travellers a chance to explore another side of Bangkok. From wining and dining in the area's best restaurants and food hubs to taking in the sights, here are 5 must-visit hotspots down one of the longest streets on the planet.


Terminal 21

Ranked among Bangkok's best malls for the young and restless, Terminal 21 is a great venue to while away a few hours stocking up on souvenirs and clothing. Resembling an airport, the unique feature of Terminal 21 is its design, which has each floor of the mall resembling the landscape of a global fashion capital such as Paris, Tokyo, or London. There are replicas of iconic structures including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and Paris's Eiffel Tower. Apart from the setting, the fashion boutiques, entertainment hubs, and retail hotspots make a tour of this sprawling mall a must-have experience for those based at Bangkok Thailand hotels belonging to popular chains such as Chatrium Hotels & Residences.


The Street Markets

Whether it's the street markets occupying Soi 1 down Sukhumvit Road or the Khlong Toei Market, which is spread out over a large area, the roadside markets are a key highlight in this part of the capital. Retailing everything from inexpensive clothing, accessories, sunglasses and souvenirs to cosmetics and caps, the street markets on Sukhumvit Road are known to sell these widely available items at lower price points than any other neighbourhood in Bangkok.


The Local Restaurants

In addition to savouring the delicacies on offer via the street food outlets down Sukhumvit Road, visitors should also head to some of the area's best restaurants. Travellers will find small cafes and fine dining hubs specialising in Thai, French, Korean, Mexican, Italian, and Japanese cuisine in this virtual paradise for food lovers. Burger joints, pizza parlours and seafood restaurants are also found on Sukhumvit Road where eateries catering exclusively to vegans and vegetarians are also located.


Dinosaur Planet Theme Park

Families spending the day in Sukhumvit must head over to the Dinosaur Planet Theme Park, one of the newest attractions to have opened its doors in the area. Two towering dinosaur sculptures greet visitors as they enter this expansive theme park that is dedicated to educating visitors about these now-extinct beasts. Some of the top highlights inside the park include 4D Deep World where dinosaur battles are on show while Dino Eye is a rollercoaster ride worthy of its name. As a theme park that informs and entertains visitors on all-things-dinosaur, the best time to visit the Dinosaur Planet Theme Park is during the morning hours as the crowds tend to grow as the day wears on.


Benjakitti Park

Regarded among the most relaxing and picturesque points of interest in Sukhumvit, Benjakitti Park is located beside a lake and is surrounded by manicured lawns and tall trees. There are walking trails and biking paths for travellers who wish to explore this mammoth park at their own pace while others can simply set up a picnic spread by the lake and enjoy the sights and sounds of this charming public park.
