Discover the Best Shops and Malls in this Bustling District
Packed with some of the best places to visit in Bangkok for shopping, dining and nightlife entertainment, Sukhumvit is a top destination for those who love shopping.
The bustling district of Sukhumvit is packed with endless opportunities for fun, be it shopping, dining or late-night partying! Here are some of our top picks for dining and shopping in Bangkok, from mega malls like Show DC and Terminal 21 Shopping Mall to the coolest hang-out spots like 72 Courtyard and Seenspace Thonglor.
Terminal 21 Shopping Mall
Travel from Paris, the city of love, to the wondrous city of Tokyo in just a few steps in Terminal 21 Shopping Mall. The mall stretches over five floors, and has managed to fit mini-versions of some of the world’s most famous cities inside. You can explore Tokyo, London or Istanbul shopping areas, all outfitted with iconic landmarks for that authentic feel.
The shopping centre resembles an airport, and is home to over 600 shops, a Cineplex, a food court with delicious Thai and international foods, and even a Gourmet Market. You’ll never run out of things to do and see while getting lost in Terminal 21!
Freebird Restaurant Bangkok
Food options abound at Sukhumvit Road, ranging from luxurious dining to on-the-go street food. And Freebird Bangkok manages to strike the perfect balance between the two — it specialises in creating unique, high-end local food, while exuding a very casual vibe.
Instead of white cloths and fancy silverware, you will find a laid-back, funky atmosphere and simply great food. The open kitchen offers a glimpse into the artistry of the Thai cuisine, which is great entertainment on its own.
Carefully sourced, high-quality food products from Hua Hin and Australia, painstakingly developed dishes that are mastered to perfection and a unique atmosphere make Freebird Restaurant the place to go for a truly exceptional meal in Bangkok.
New kid on the block Show DC is one of the biggest shopping centres in Sukhumvit and already a favourite with tourists and locals for its Korean street food, pop culture shops and entertainment options.
Whilst Bangkok boasts plenty of shopping options, Show DC is proving itself to be more than just a great place to shop by focusing on entertainment options — its live music concert hall can fit 5,000 people, and it even has a sports arena and a 4D walk-through theatre.
Seenspace Thonglor has forged itself a reputation as one of the coolest hang-out spots in Bangkok, thanks to its blend of boutiques, bars and restaurants, which has made it a favourite among hip tourists and locals.
Whether you’re looking for a cup of speciality coffee, the perfect outfit or simply a bite to eat, you can find it all at Seenspace Thonglor.
Despite Thonglor’s diverse array of glitzy bars and bistros, the up-and-coming open-plan mall 72 Courtyard’s minimalist architecture and neon lighting manages to make it stand out from the crowd. Much like community mall The Commons, the industrial-chic 72 Courtyard boasts wide, communal spaces and trendy wine and dine spaces for you to see and be seen.
Its host of restaurants offer fresh takes on cuisines from all around the world, perfect for fuelling up before a night of fun at Beam: arguably Bangkok’s hottest nightclub, attracting DJs and artists from all over the world.
