#SundayWellSpent: Exploring the Essentials of Soi Sukhumvit 23

#SundayWellSpent: Exploring the Essentials of Soi Sukhumvit 23

It’s Sunday morning, the last day of your long awaited weekend break. It’s about 10:00 in the morning, you sit up in bed and think to yourself “how will I make this day a #SundayWellSpent?” You can go out of town for some awesome eats and nice picturesque views, but the thought of driving is already daunting enough. You can go to a shopping mall right at the heart of town where you can conveniently go shopping for almost anything, but that would be kind of too ordinary isn’t it?

Why not hop on the BTS Skytrain and get down at Asoke Station and walk towards Soi Sukhumvit 23? There’s a bunch of good restaurants, beauty salons, spas, and quite some epic nightclubs for you to end the night on a high note. Come along with us down one of the most popular alleys in Bangkok’s Sukhumvit area, and you will learn that there is more to the Soi’s character than Soi Cowboy and a fair share of massage parlous.

Here are the top 10 places (not listed in any particular) you should visit in Soi Sukhumvit 23 for a perfect Sunday out with your friends and family.
