A diverse neighborhood
At the beginning of the soi, you will find Emporium, a shopping center that is inclined towards top of the line brand names - think Louis Vuitton and Prada. On the third floor, you will find the first Greyhound Cafe and the Emporium Department Store, which has everything from lavish scents to the most recent children toys. Fifth floor is a mass of restaurants, stores, cafés, fast food outlets and even a market. The following and most elevated floor gloats one of Bangkok's SFX cinema. Right next to Emporium, you will see Benjasiri Park, a lovely little heaven in the midst of Sukhumvit's famous busy road. The best time to come is late evening and early evening when you can join in on the gathering vigorous exercise, yoga, basketball or just relaxing on the grass. Make it a point to look at the groups playing the extraordinarily acrobatic round of takraw, a sort of combination of volleyball and football. On the opposite side of the beginning of this soi, you will see a pathway where a little gathering of road stalls which offer the local delicacies - flame broiled Isaan hotdog, pork-on-a-stick, and Thai coffee. A hole in the wall curry-and-rice shop is a decent decision for a fiery Thai lunch. Across the road lies Villa Market, a supermarket chain that imports Western foreign goodies, including many options of wine. Past that is Soi 33, an enthusiastic little road with a few bars that have a tendency to draw Bangkok's more upscale expats. The recently opened upscale EM Quartier is also on the same side as the Villa Market and it is home to many new and upscale well-known brands, alike.
