Visitors: 144

"Sukhumvit Street" is one of the most reputed and longest commercial streets in Bangkok for its wide range of good items that satisfy any kind of desire of the people. It is an immense market with plenty of vendor stalls selling everything from luggage to fake Rolex watches, and converts into pavement cafés and bars at midnight.

As these street vendors cover all the aspects of daily needs of the customers even a large variety of food items can also be found. Also, it is possible to buy any item of all sorts of fashionable brands such as American and European designer T-shirts and casual shirts like DKNY and Ralph Lauren for a lower price but not in their original quality. And also, in order to attract more and more customers, most of the vendors decorate the front of their stores in very colorful way with attracting collections of fine jewelry and other cosmetics where most of the women shoppers stop at for at least a moment.

Sukhumvit Street has now become a most visited central place in Bangkok after the opening of the new Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

More over there are four main movie theaters in this area that make the night life full of fun. They are truly plush theatre houses with elegant look, consisting around 170-190 seats each and screening Hollywood and Asian blockbusters with all the mandatory facilities for the spectators. The Emporium Shopping Center which is one of the most important shopping mall inSukhumvit is a six floor building dedicated to several sections of customer service in each floor.

In the first floor we can see a wide range of world's most popular brands such as “Rolex", “Cartier", “TagHeure" and more along with affordably priced goods. And the fifth floor consists on a popular food court and a attractive selection of restaurants which are ready to serve with any kind of cuisines at any time of the day. Gaysorn Plaza is also apremier luxury shopping mall in Sukhumvit offering an excellent selection of antiques and Thai handicrafts which are in high quality but with rather high prices too.

President Solitaire which is a much popular Bangkok Serviced Apartment is located close to these Sukhumvit Street Markets. Also parallel to the Sukhumvit, flowing quietly the is the Saen Saeb Canal which is the ideal place to enjoy a smooth boat ride and to avoiding the bustling traffic in Bangkok streets.
