Sukhumvit is one of the most crowded areas in Bangkok. Many tourists tend to stay around Sukhumvit as it’s an area that can cover every type of traveler.
It may be very popular for nightlife, but there are many things to explore in this area.
AIRPORTELs lists 3 things for you to try in Sukhumvit.
1. Cycling Tour of Sukhumvit
On the surface of Sukhumvit, everything seems to be so vivid to tourists. There are shopping malls, clubs, restaurants and many other businesses packed into this area.
Cycling tours in Bangkok offer some of the most immersive trips you can do around the city as you get an immediate connection to your surroundings not usually offered by other modes of transport.
Bangkok cycle tours don’t usually require a very high level of fitness and are suitable for most visitors thanks to mostly flat terrain, excellent equipment and early starts in the warm morning breeze.
Peddle off the well-beaten tourist track on two wheels on one of these excellent trips.They will take you to every nook and cranny of Bangkok.
A quick internet search will show you a handful of companies offering cycling tours around town.Most trips take half a day.

2. Sky View rooftop
Visit the Sky Bar: If you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable experience, head to one of Sukhumvit’s many rooftop bars, such as the Sky Bar at Lebua.
Located on the 63rd floor of the State Tower, the Sky Bar offers stunning views of the city skyline while you enjoy a drink and some delicious snacks.
The bar is famous for its signature cocktail, the Hangovertini, which was created for the cast of The Hangover Part II when they filmed scenes at the bar.
Just be aware that the dress code is strict (no shorts or flip flops), and prices are on the high side, but it’s definitely worth it for the experience.
3. Pier 21 Food Terminal
This is a food court located in Terminal 21, the main shopping mall in the Asok area, connected directly to the BTS and MRT.
This is one of the tastiest and cleanest food courts in Bangkok. Located on the 5th floor of this unique ‘one city, one-floor’ lifestyle mall, Terminal 21 food court has an excellent cross-section of Thai cuisine, with Chinese, Indian and Western options too.
The food court is called Pier 21 as it is designed in the style of a fisherman’s wharf in San Francisco: everything is bright with plenty of trees and plants around to create an aesthetically pleasing environment.
It’s cheap, but it’s full of quality. More information: http://www.terminal21.co.th/asok/shop/pier21
