A dynamic part of Bangkok, Sukhumvit is set amidst towering skyscrapers and offers fascinating discoveries for intrepid travellers. Here are some of the top things to do when you visit.
Shop at Terminal 21
A quite unique mall, Terminal 21 features themed sections showcasing world-famous cities; one moment you could be shopping in Champs-Élysées in Paris and in the next, transported to Tokyo City or even a souk in Istanbul! Within a five-minute cab ride from Travelodge Sukhumvit 11, the mall has a food court and a cinema too.
Unwind at Benjakiti Park
Providing a space to relax away from the hustle and bustle, idyllic Benjakiti Park is also popular for those in search of recreation. Easy to reach from hotels in Sukhumvit, Bangkok, the park has its own lake where you can enjoy paddle boating and is ideal for jogging, cycling and having picnics too.
Visit the Science Centre for Education
A popular attraction in Bangkok for the whole family, the Science Centre for Education features various exhibits and activities that offer interactive learning. A great place for young minds to discover the world we live in, the site is home to a planetarium too.
Learn to fly at Flight Experience Bangkok
If you have dreamt of being a pilot (or an “aviatrix”; a female pilot!), then Flight Experience Bangkok is the place to go to. Located within the Gateway Ekamai Mall, this attraction features a realistic simulator that lets you take to the skies and land at some of the most famous airports in the world.
