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.

Soi Cowboy 

The crowd is building up. photo SoiCowboy27.jpg Soi Cowboy is only a very short street with about 40 go-go bars, competing with Nana Plaza and Patpong Rd.

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

Relaxing in the air-conditioning

Terminal 21 is not as modern as many other Bangkok malls such as Siam Centre, The Emporium or EmQuartier however it offers all the attractions such as low cost food, a supermarket and a convenient central location.

Very good food court

Carolina Honey Ribs

Terminal 21 Bangkok They tasted as good as they looked but I really should have ordered the half serve, the standard was a little too much for me.

Washed down with red wine
