Sukhumvit

Bangkok, Thailand

The basics

Sukhumvit Road (Thanon Sukhumvit) runs almost all the way from Bangkok to the Cambodian border. But for most Bangkok visitors, the term “Sukhumvit” means a downtown strip of Sukhumvit Road, spanning sois (alleys or side streets) numbered from 1 to 60-something. Soi numbering runs east to west. Odd-numbered streets head northeast, while even-numbered alleys point southwest. Nana is the most central of Sukhumvit’s districts, with Asok then Phrom Phong and Thonglor as you head further east.

Great learning experience

Choose 5 Dishes: Half-Day Cooking Class in Sukhumvit with Market Tour
We were the only couple there since Thailand is still opening due to covid. It was a great one on one experience. Our teacher showed us how to make a total of 5 dishes each (we each got to choose our own 5). Favorites were a chicken stir fry and Pad Thai. Definitely recommend if you're looking to learn how to make some authentic dishes.

My wife and I loved learning how to cook some of our favorite Thai dishes. We really appreciated the added market tour, where we purchased some ingredients to cook with. We were also surprised with how many dishes we were able to make! Be sure to arrive hungry -- there's plenty of food. We highly recommend adding this to your itinerary in Bangkok!

Had an excellent time, chef Letty walked us through how to prepare everything and gave tips on how to substitute ingredients in our home countries. Market tour was a little boring, but cooking class more than made up for it.

Great experience. Easy meet and greet and then to the market to learn about fresh Thai ingredients that are used in everyday dishes. Then off to the cooking class, which was great. Very informative and easy to follow instructions, plus the food was amazing. All cooked from scratch by our very own hands!

We met our our guide at near the On Nut train station on the BTS network. The Cooking Academy was only a 5 minute walk away. We had a brief tour in the market place to witness, handle and smell the produce we will be using in the cooking class. We then made our way into the Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy. It is a very clean environment and hygiene a priority. Our work benches all prepared for the 5 dishes we were going to make. We met our master chef. She was excellent. Her lessons were well structured and timed to perfection. Remember our class was not all making the same dishes. Everything we made was then consumed by us as a lunch or dinner. If you have a genuine interest in cooking and you want to learn about Thai food and how to put it together the right way then do not leave Bangkok until you experience this class. I can highly recommend this class.

Mike and I had a wonderful time at this cooking class. The classes were well structured and we each got to cook five Thai dishes which included Massaman Curry, Pad Thai, Tom Yum, Chicken Cashew, Black Pepper Beef and several more besides as well as Mango Sticky Rice which was gorgeous. The Chefs were amazingly patient with us both as we are just very ordinary cooks without fancy knife skills or any in-depth knowledge of Thai spices or chillies. We pounded up red curry paste and green curry paste so we were able to tailor each of the dishes we made to a heat that was perfect for us. Prior to the cooking class we were met by a lovely young lady who gave us a tour of the fresh produce market behind the cooking academy and explained the different vegetables and how they are used in Thai cooking, and how their individual flavours contributed the end dish. We would so recommend that everyone who comes to Thailand does this cooking class if only to develop a better understanding of the people and the culture. And the food was yum, yum, yummy....😋

Things to know before you go

  • Sukhumvit’s neighborhoods offer a great range of accommodation for travelers who like to experience local life.
  • Slings or back carriers are a better option than strollers in downtown Bangkok. Families should check location carefully before booking Sukhumvit hotels as go-go bars can pop up in the most unlikely locations.
  • High kerbs and heavy traffic make Sukhumvit’s sidewalks tough to navigate in a wheelchair, while many sois are in bad condition. Better quality hotels and upscale malls have wheelchair access.

Sukhumvit’s Red Light Districts

Two of Bangkok’s most notorious red light areas are in Sukhumvit. Soi Cowboy, a strip of go-go bars that featured in The Hangover Part II and dates back to the early 70s, runs between Soi 21 and Soi 23. Nana Plaza is a 3-story emporium of strip joints and transgender cabarets on Soi 4.
