The best part about staying a bit off-center in Sukhumvit is being given the opportunity to live amongst the locals. On our first night, we sat in the first eatery we saw and it was the best introduction to the city.
If there is one that needs to be seen, it is Wat Pho, or Temple of the Reclining Buddha. This Buddhist Temple is the home to the famous Reclining Buddha. The gold leaf-covered statue reclines 46 meters long and is simply impressive.
