Most people know of Sukhumvit Soi 35 as the road that runs next door to EmQuartier shopping mall.
EmQuartier is one third of the developing EM District, which also comprises the Emporium shopping mall across the road and the not-yet-built EmSphere, which is planned to be constructed on the site where Dinosaur Planet currently stands.
And that really is the major highlight of this soi, although it does eventually cut away to form Phrom Chai Alley before joining up with the hectic Soi 39. Thanks to this positioning, there can be the occasional traffic jam down Soi 35, particularly during the afternoon rush hour. There are plenty of apartments and private homes located down here too.
Let’s have a look at what else is down here…
As the name suggests, the Man Salon is a gentleman’s grooming parlour found at the start of Sukhumvit Soi 35. It’s part of the Take Care beauty salon chain.
They offer hair, nails and other such salon treatments for their male customers, including waxing and massage.
This is an old-school Thai restaurant tucked away towards the end of Soi 35. They specialise in Northern Thai cuisine and are best loved for their brilliant khao soi noodles. Prices are reasonable and staff are friendly and helpful.
