Thailand - Bangkok - Bangkok Areas
- Sukhumvit Road Area
Sukhumvit Road area is now the largest modern tourism hotel and entertainment
district of the Thai capital and also the area preferred by foreign
residents in Bangkok. The area is well served by public transport -
The SkyTrain runs right through the area.
Road is not just the city street you see but also one of the capital's
arterial roads extending for more than 400 kilometres along the eastern
seaboard, passing Pattaya and in to Trat
Province right on the Cambodian
In Bangkok, Sukhumvit Road is a long straight 6 to 8-lane road with
only a few major intersections. Except for a few, most side streets
(a side street is called Soi in Thai) are dead-end streets. While this
sounds depressing at first, it's actually a major advantage of the
Sukhumvit Road area as a residential district. Being as the side streets
are dead-ends, there is no passing traffic! Some of the Soi's give
you the feeling that one can live as quietly as in a small town. You
can't get lost easily either!
