Soi 8 is one of the most underrated of Sukhumvit’s many streets.
In comparison to its noisy Nana neighbours, Soi 8 sports a slightly more laid back atmosphere with a distinct aesthetic charm and abundance of greenery lining its side.
Pastel-coloured townhouses and billowing palm trees frame the Soi while a handful of bars, restaurants, hostels and hotels cater to the offbeat clientele found here.
There’s towering condos aplenty too as both Thais and expats take advantage of the soi’s brilliant location adjacent to Nana BTS Station.
Let’s take a look around…
Food and Drink
Although Soi 8 is not quite the culinary and nightlife destination that Soi 11 opposite claims to be, it still has a number of eateries up its sleeve.
For drinking holes on Soi 8, check out the pubs and sports bars above, and det-5 if you fancy live music and rich history.
If you’re after boutique or hostel accommodation, Soi 8 should be the first place you start.
Smaller boutiques are in abundance here; this is definitely not the Soi to start at if you’re after international hotel chains… Check out On8, The Promenade, Salil Hotel, Royal Asia Lodge, Sawasdee Hotel, Royal Express, At Paradise, Stable Lodge and the newly opened Rewind Bar and Hotel.
If you’re just looking for a fitted suit, why not check out the two tailors on Soi 8? Crown Tailors and Suitmakers are found towards the start of the soi while the confusingly named Tailor On Ten can be found towards the quieter end.
