Sukhumvit Line of the Bangkok Skytrain

The Sukhumvit line is considerably the longer of the two lines, and runs from On Nut all the way up to Mo Chit. The full list of skytrain stations on this line are as follows, and are listed with their location and the nearest things of interest if any. A map of the skytrain is at the bottom of the Silom line page.

Approximate pronunciations of the station names is given in italics, most are the same in English and Thai though a few aren't.

Sukhumvit Line (sai su-kum-wit)
Mo Chit
(mor chit)

This is on Phaholyothin road between soi's 18 and 20, very near the Chatuchak Weekend Market and the 'old' Mo Chit bus station (it's still a few km away from Mo Chit Mai/New Mo Chit bus station, though there are many buses that make this trip).
Saphan Kwai
(sa-pahn kwai)

This is south of Mo Chit on Phaholyothin road. The Saphan Kwai area is one of Bangkok's entertainment areas, but there's little other reason to stop here.
Ari Station

Located further south on Phaholyothin road, near soi's 6 and 7. This is really just a residential area, and is unlikely to be of any interest to the average visitor.
Sanam Pao
(sa-nahm bpao)

Also on Phaholyothin road, this station is also in mainly residential territory. It's near the Continental Hotel and the Phaya Thai 2 hospital.
Victory Monument
(anu-sah-waree chai-sanom-apoom)

Unsurprisingly, this is situated near the very busy Victory Monument area (where the Phaya Thai, Phaholyothin and Ratchawitihi roads meet). It's close to to Century Park Hotel, and the famous Saxophone pub.
Phaya Thai
(pa-yah tai)

On Phaya Thai road near Sri Ayuthaya intersection, this is near the Florida and Siam City hotels. Other than that, the only other real reason to stop here is to go visit the Suan Pakkard Palace.

Ratchathewi station is very close to (and will soon be linked to) the Asia Hotel, and it's also the nearest station to First Hotel, the Amari Watergate hotel, the Indra Regent Hotel, Phantip Plaza and the rest of the congested Pratunam district.
Siam / Central Station

This is located next to Siam Square, near the Novotel Bangkok and Siam Intercontinental hotels. Also in this area are several shopping malls, cinemas, restaurants etc...The station is connected to the Siam Center shopping mall, and is also the interchange station to switch to the Silom line.

This is on Ploenchit road, close to the intersection with Ratchadamri road. Near here is the World Trade Center, Gaysorn Plaza, the Siam Orchid Inn, Arnoma Hotel, Le Meridien Hotel and the Brazilian embassy. The station is also connected to the Central Chidlom and Amarin Plaza department stores.

Ploenchit station is also on Ploenchit road, near to Withayu (Wireless) road. It's near to the City Inn, Imperial Hotel, Hilton International Bangkok and the many embassies round here (including the UK, USA and New Zealand).

This is near Sukhumvit soi's 5, 6 and 7. It's very close to the many hotels in this area, including the Landmark, Amari Boulevard, City Lodge, Nana Hotel, JW Marriot, Grand Inn and more. Stopping here lands you right in the middle of the Sukhumvit street 'market' and there's many tourist-orientated restaurants, tailors the area.

This is near Sukhumvit soi's 14, 16, 19 and 21. It also has many hotels close to it, including the Grand Pacific (and attached branch of Robinson's department store), Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, Royal Asia Lodge, Manhattan and more. Also close by is the uninspiring Times Square shopping mall.
Phrom Phong
(prorm pong)

This is close to Sukhumvit soi's 22, 24, 31 and 33. In this area, there is the Novotel Lotus Hotel, Regency Park Hotel and the Imperial Queen's hotel. The station is connected to the fashionable Emporium department store, and is also close to the Benjasiri Park.
Thong Lo
(torng lor)

Further down Sukhumvit, Thong Lo is near Sukhumvit soi's 36,51 and 55 (Thong Lo road). In the Thong Lo area there are many decent restaurants and a few bars, though it takes quite a walk to reach them from the station (or take the free BTS shuttle bus).

This station is near Sukhumvit soi's 42 and 63. It's mainly used for the Eastern Bus Station, known as Ekkamai, on Sukhumvit soi 63.
(pra kan-ohng)

This station is near Sukhumvit soi's 44/1, 46 and 69. It's also near the junction with Rama IV road.
On Nut
(orn nut)

This station is close to Sukhumvit soi's 50, 52, 77, 79 and 81. It's connected directly to the large Tesco Lotus supermarket, and branches of McDonald's, KFC, Pizza Hut etc...
