Lower Sukhumvit (QSCC): Area Description

Introduction
For our puposes here, Lower Sukhumvit is the section of Sukhumvit Road shown above which extends south and east of Asok/Ratchadaphisek to the Phrom Phong skytrain station, though Sukhumvit continues southeast. The main draw here is the Queen Sirikit Convention Center. Opened officially in August of 1991, this sophisticated, multi-purpose facility has been host to the World Bank/International Monetary Fund, the Miss Universe Pagent, and the ASEAN summit of economic ministers among its many events. There are several inexpensive, convenient hotels in the area, as you can see on the list above. Please remember that many of the hotels of Upper Sukhumvit are very close to the convention center as well, as you can see by viewing the complete map of Sukhumvit Road - that is, the main part of Sukhumvit Road which lies within central Bangkok.

Shopping
The Emporium Shopping Center
New and very upmarket - nothing is cheap here, but it's terrific for designer labels and everything of quality.

Eating & Drinking
Washington Square: Bourbon Street Restaurant & Bar
Consistently voted the best American restaurant in Bangkok and extremely popular with expats.


Washington Square: The Dubliner Irish Pub
Excellent food and legendary brew. A friendly place.

Skytrain
(Stations and lines in gray from left to right and/or top to bottom on the map above.)

Sukhumvit Line: (Phrom Phong station)
Completed in December of 1999, the Bangkok Skytrain glides above Bangkok's busy, busy streets quickly and relatively cheaply. The cars are new and modern and the system can whisk you quickly about in air-conditioned comfort - a must if you're out and about during rush hour, which is pretty much all day! We do have one gripe about the Bangkok Skytrain, however. For some reason, only a few of the stations have escalators to take you up to the stations some 60-70 feet overhead. On a typical, sizzling Bangkok afternoon this inexplicable oversight is certainly less forgivable as you stomp up the stairs. Still, this beats the old days of taking meterless taxis (now, all taxis have meters) through permanently clogged streets.
