THONG LOR

If seeing and being seen is your thing or if you love to dine at the hottest bistros while watching the world go by in the latest fashions, Thonglor is where you want to be. The main street in Thonglor, also known as Sukhumvit Soi 55, features some of the city’s best restaurants, coolest bars and hippest entertainment complexes. Pop your head into Seenspace, The Commons or 72 Courtyard to see who’s making the scene and what Bangkok’s elite get up to after the sun goes down. If you’re more of a morning person, you’ll find plenty of cafes as well as some of the city’s most high-end yoga, pilates and other trendy fitness destinations.
