Possibly the coolest area of Bangkok, Thonglor is perfect for party-goers looking for excitement and its hipster hotels reflect the surrounding area’s reputation.
Ultra-fashionable Thonglor was once a hidden secret of Bangkok’s nightlife, an undiscovered jewel only known by the very coolest kids in town. Today, the secret is out and you’ll see plenty of other tourists when staying in Thonglor. With tons of cool bars, amazing nightclubs and even more off-the-wall examples of nighttime shenanigans, like a games lounge complete with beer and burgers, trendy Thonglor may be well-known, but it is no less entertaining.
Located in the Watthana district, city centre attractions aren’t as close by as some visitors might like, local street food vendors have recently reduced in numbers and shopping isn’t of the same standard as other areas of Bangkok. However, if you want to enjoy some serious partying, you should make sure you book a hotel in Thonglor.

Getting to Thonglor
Thonglor is actually the name given to Sukhumvit Soi 55. This is important information to know, as that’s the destination name for the Skytrain Station which has an entrance right onto the street. This makes it an extremely convenient way to travel to the district.
