Also known as Soi Saeng Mukda, Sukhumvit Soi 43 is a short soi at the start of Thonglor neighbourhood. It joins up with Sois 41 and 47 through its various subsois.
As well as a few car dealerships, there are a couple of shops and restaurants found down here, as well as apartment buildings and the big Charan Tower. There’s also a Bangkok Branch branch and a Western Union.
Let’s have a look at this soi’s highlights…
