Ekkamai is an up-and-coming district along Sukhumvit Road that is quickly gaining popularity. Located just next to Thong Lo, it’s laid back and residential during the day while drawing a young crowd of creative types at nighttime. It is particularly liked both by middle-class Thais and expats. It has a hipster vibe with its cafes and restaurants, co-working spaces, boutiques, specialty stores, and art galleries. Ekkamai has the added bonus of being in the Sukhumvit area and being very well connected by BTS and the Eastern Bus Terminal. The neighborhood offers an enticing mix of the trendy and the traditional. Housing options in Ekkamai are plentiful, with many good modern condos, townhouses, and serviced apartments in the medium- to high-price range to choose from.
