What to see around Sukhumvit MRT Station

This area is one of the main business areas in Bangkok. There are several high-rise office buildings, hotels, serviced apartments in a walking distance from the station.

Sukhumvit MRT is an interchange station. It connects with BTS Skytrain at ‘Asok Station’. Many tourists choose to stay at the hotel around the station because they can take both BTS and MRT to explore Bangkok. Besides, it is easy to reach several shopping malls on Sukhumvit Road.

Terminal 21 is the biggest shopping mall in this area. Recently, I have seen more and more tourists at this shopping mall. I myself like this shopping mall because of two reasons. The first one is its decoration. Each floor is decorated in different themes and the decoration has been done not only in the retail area, but also in the restrooms. The second reason is its cheap and delicious food court. Some food stalls are even cheaper than the street food stalls.

Benjakitti Park is the park in this area. From the station, the park is in walking distance. Well, if you want to go to the park, it is better to get off at Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre MRT Station. That station is closer to the park.
