Nana Sukhumvit area Bangkok is where I have been staying for 20 years. Lots of hotels bars & restaurants & close to the sky train. Plus of course the infamous Nana Plaza.
Quintessential Nana Plaza
To anybody who has been to Nana Plaza this photo captures the irony of the situation. 🙂
There is more than just the plaza
Right beside Nana station are some skyscrapers including the Landmark hotel.
The small brown building in the centre is the Dynasty Grande a hotel where I often stay.
The rooms are compact and nicely laid out including a kitchen if you like to prepare some food. This is now my hotel of choice, plus Soi 11 is a great street for bars and restaurants.
Located near the Dynasty in Soi 8 is one of my favourite restaurants, put it on your list.
Great food and wine at a reasonable price at Monsoon in Soi 8.
Next to Nana station
Another huge building going up beside Nana station.
Progress February 21
The 2 br condos are advertised starting at B26 million or just over $1 million AUD.
Mayhem in 2003 The photo above shows the exact spot where a group of criminals totally wrecked what was then called Clinton Plaza, dozens of vendors were put out of business because somebody decided they wanted to develop the site. Now in 2015 the people responsible still have not been convicted.
Excellent Breakfast at the JW Marriott hotel on Sukhumvit.

Enjoying another great breakfast at the Marriott.
Terminal 21 Asoke
This shopping mall is located next door to Asoke station which is one stop away from Nana. There are lots of restaurants and bars in this area, in particular the famous Soi Cowboy.
Two blocks from Soi Cowboy and terminal 21 is a very nice French restaurant, excellent food & service with an attractive décor. The address is Sukhumvit 21 Soi 3, Ocean Tower II, Khwaeng Khlong Toei Nuea, Khet Watthana, 10110.

The other end of the scale
The bus stop in Soi 4 Nana serves one of my favourite meals, I have been eating their Oxtail stew for over 15 years.
February 2016. I had an unhappy experience at the Bust Stop in Soi 4 Nana in Bangkok 2 weeks ago. For many years I have been ordering the oxtail stew which is fantastic, lunch on the Thursday was excellent, then I returned for dinner on Friday night and they only served 2 pieces of oxtail instead of the normal 3. I complained as the price of B350 remained the same, well the chef was quite rude and unhelpful and refused to make it right, so I paid for my wine and left. After around 16 years of enjoying this great dish I guess it is time for a break, just saying………
Modern buildings & messy wiring
Quintessential Bangkok, one one hand you have beautiful modern buildings and on the other hand 3rd world electricity wiring. 🙂
Hooters has arrived
Opened in Soi 4 Nana on December 23rd 2015, sadly I believe it is destined to fail, wrong location, local “Cheap Charlies” will never pay extra for their drinks. They will sit opposite where the drinks are cheaper and the bar girls are available for extra activities.
Just a few meters from Nana station is this excellent small hotel tucked away is a lane off Soi 11. If you use this link you will get a room for around B1100.
The entrance to Nana Plaza, Hooters and the Hillary bar.
A lot of bull happening here
Thanks for visiting my Nana Sukhumvit area Bangkok post.
