Sukhumvit (Thai: สุขุมวิท) is an exclusive area in Bangkok with fancy condominiums, hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs. It has attracted affluent Thais and expats from all over the world. Following the road south east, the area changes its character and becomes a residential neighbourhood similar to other suburban areas in Bangkok.
Sukhumvit Road is not only one of the longest roads in Thailand, but one of the longest roads in the world. Towards the west end it changes name to Phloen Chit Road and Rama I Road as it enters the Siam Square area, but to the east it runs most of the way to the Cambodian border. The sois are numbered from west to east, with odd numbers north and even numbers south of Sukhumvit Road. The sois on the north and south sides of Sukhumvit don't line up; for example, Soi 33 is opposite Soi 24. Confusing is that these sois also have names of their own (for example, Soi 55 is better known as Soi Thong Lo) and these sois can also have sois of their own (such as Thong Lo Soi 1).
