Dive into Bangkok’s most glamorous and exclusive neighbourhood: Sukhumvit. 5 star hotels here will put you on the doorstep of the city’s most fashionable bars, restaurants and spas, as well as excellent shopping opportunities and fabulous cultural attractions.
Shopping in Sukhumvit
The enormous boulevard that forms Sukhumvit stretches for kilometres and is lined with a vast array of shopping centres, large stores, boutiques and markets. Emporium is the area’s main mall and is geared towards high-end outlets. The many markets are also well worth visiting for a more authentic experience in Sukhumvit. You can then retreat to one of the upmarket bars or restaurants to unwind.
Thai culture in Sukhumvit
The area also happens to be particularly great for seeing cultural and historical sights in Bangkok. These include the marvellous Kamthieng House, a traditional Thai stately home converted into a fantastic museum. The Thailand Creative and Design Center is located in Emporium, so you can easily soak up a little culture during a shopping trip here.
Relaxing at the spa
Thailand is famous for its excellent spa treatments, and Sukhumvit is undeniably one of the best places in the country to find really great quality establishments. Enjoy a long spa treatment including neck, shoulder and foot massages. Some spas have gardens on-site and offer half-day treatments for the ultimate indulgence. Combined with a stay in a 5 star hotel in Sukhumvit, you’ll have the ultimate luxury Thai experience.
