Right next to Thonglor BTS station is Sukhumvit Soi 36; a long street stretching from Sukhumvit down to Rama IV road.

This area is very popular with both expats and middle class Thais, so there are inevitably plenty of apartment and condo buildings, as well as a few new developments popping up regularly.

Let’s take a look at the highlights on Soi 36.

My Choice Thai Cuisine


My Choice is a popular Thai restaurant towards the top of Sukhumvit Soi 36. They have a modern and well-appointed space, and are open daily from 11am to 10pm.

Vientiane Kitchen


This is a Thai and Laotian restaurant that regularly entertains customers with Thai traditional dancing and — according to their own website — the best Isaan cuisine in town.
