Shopping Delights

Fashionistas can enjoy shopping at the impressive EmQuartier mall where designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and Chanel can be found. More retail therapy is on offer at the unique airport themed Terminal 21; around a 10 minute walk from Maitria Hotel Sukhumvit 18 – A Chatrium Collection, it has levels styled after different destinations be it San Francisco, London, Tokyo or Paris!

Foodie Adventures

Those staying at a hotel in Sukhumvit also have lots of opportunities to enjoy some foodie discoveries; popular street food such as mango sticky rice, pad Thai and papaya salad are definitely worth trying when here. Soi 38 and Sukhumvit Road Street Market are two places known for offering street food, while there are plenty of eateries and restaurants throughout Sukhumvit too.

Relaxation and Recreation

If you’re looking to relax after all the shopping or burn some calories following your foodie tours, head to Benjasiri Park! A great place to unwind, this scenic park with its central lake offers recreation options too like volleyball, basketball, jogging and skateboarding.

Party Time

As night falls, Sukhumvit is given a fresh lease of life and features many clubs where one can dance the night away. LEVELS Club & Lounge, Demo and Beam are amongst the popular venues here that you can include on your itinerary for club hopping in Bangkok.
