Terminal 21 & Centrepoint Hotel

Exciting Asoke Sukhumvit Line Bangkok Exciting Asoke Sukhumvit Line Bangkok is only one station or 10 minutes from where I stay in Soi 11 Nana. Asoke station is adjacent to Terminal 21 one of the many Bangkok shopping malls.

Nana Plaza, Patpong Rd and Soi Cowboy are popular “so called” entertainment areas.

 Hemingway’s at Exciting Asoke Sukhumvit Line Bangkok

Exciting Asoke Sukhumvit Line Bangkok Another beloved expat bar and restaurant, Hemingway’s, shut its doors at the end of October 2016.  The land was purchased by Japanese developers who plan to build a 27-story hotel on the site that sits directly at BTS Asoke at the top of Sukhumvit Soi 14.

Unlike in the US, the UK and  Australia, there are no laws in Thailand to protect historic buildings. If there were, this rare and gorgeous specimen would have been protected. Sadly the owners spent one million USD (THB35 million)  renovating the house and opening the restaurant just four years ago.

 Brewski at Radisson Blu Plaza

Exciting Asoke Sukhumvit Line Bangkok Brewski sky bar on Sukhumvit Road near Soi 25 claim to be the only rooftop craft beer bar in Bangkok. I’m not into craft beers however an Asahi bottle was reasonably priced at B160, or $4.50 USD.

 You won’t see many white elephants in Asoke

Soi Buakhao

Exciting Soi Buakhao Pattaya Exciting Soi Buakhao Pattaya is not just one of the main night life centres that is extremely popular with the locals.

Witherspoons pub & restaurant
