Terminal 21

This is a shopping mall that has an airport theme which consists of a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Each of the floors is designed to represent famous tourist destinations such as Tokyo, Paris, London and Istanbul and has miniature replicas of its landmarks like the Golden Bridge and Eiffel Tower.


If you’re staying at a Sukhumvit suites hotel similar to that of Somerset Maison Asoke and want to learn more about the day to day life of the locals of Thailand, then visiting one of the animated markets in Sukhumvit is the best way to do it. The market at Soi 1 that offers clothing items, street food and trinkets is a great place to start.

The cuisine

Sukhumvit is a foodies’ paradise that offers both local Thai and international cuisine. There are plenty of eateries ranging from street food vendors to chic fine dine restaurants that serve mouth-watering Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Italian and Mexican cuisine. The flavour palette in Sukhumvit is so wide that it offers something for everyone.

Spa treatment

Getting a relaxing spa is the best way to unwind after a long day of exploring the busy streets of Sukhumvit. While most of the places accommodate walk-in guests its best to plan ahead and make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
