Sukhumvit stretches on forever, actually running all the way out along Bangkok's eastern seaboard, but the real action takes place from lower to mid Sukhumvit, basically between soi's 1-55, encompassing the Nana, Asok, and Thong Lor districts (for Ekkamai and Thong Lor nightlife, see our separate pages on this, as this guide covers Sukhumvit proper).

Located in the heart of Sukhumvit, just steps from the skytrain and subway stations at the Asok intersection, Axis & Spin flies under the radar of most visitors, perhaps because it sits so far above them, located up on the 38th floor of The Continent Hotel. This beautiful chilled out sky lounge and bar features all you need for a superlative night out. The panoramic city views are dazzling, the extensive drink and food menu both creative and inspiring, and the happy hour specials as well as freebies for those who opt in for Sky benefits at the hotel make it well worth the elevator ride up.

Sightseeing
Want to know what Bangkok may have looked like before the invention of condos or the invasion of 7-Elevens? Tiny motorboats from rickety, unadvertised piers at the end of Narathiwas Road ferry the adventurous to a surprisingly undeveloped heart of green jungle. There, thousands of paths lead through a wet wonderland of stilt houses, sarong-clad elders and fruits that can be plucked from the trees.

There's no combination of the corporeal and ethereal like a stroll through this otherworldly temple compound, where the relaxed smile on the famous Reclining Buddha serves as the cue to head for the school of traditional massage, tel: (66-2) 221 2974, right on the grounds. There's often a wait, and there's no privacy as aching tourist bodies lie side by side. But the prices are low and the standards divine.

The Loha Prasat is one of Bangkok's more eccentric religious buildings, a metal-tipped complex of concentric boxes that resembles the inner sanctum of an Egyptian tomb. If climbing its levels or browsing the adjoining market for outlandishly showy Buddha amulets builds up an appetite, adjoining Mahachai Road just happens to host the Thipsamai restaurant, (66-2) 221 6280. It's famed for its pad thai, lusciously soft noodles heaped from fiery woks and served with giant prawns and egg as gleaming yellow as the nearby spire of the famed Golden Mount.

When Bangkok goes Hindu, it really goes wild.

MBK Center is probably Bangkok's most legendary shopping mall, popular with both tourists and locals, and busy with shoppers every day. There are eight floors packed with 2,000 shops that sell everything from clothing, fashion accessories, handbags, leather products and luggage to furniture, mobile phones, electric appliances, cameras, stationery and DVDs. Launched in 1986, MBK Center is a beehive of activity, especially on weekends, when half of Bangkok converges to shop for bargains. It's not as up-market or stylish as neighbouring Siam Discovery, Siam Centre and the glitzy Siam Paragon, but it offers a mind-boggling range of goods spread over 89,000 square metres.
