Nimman Attractions, Shopping, Activities

The sois (meaning “streets” in Thai) are alleyways which branch off of either side of the Nimman Road. Each Soi is peppered with an abundance of amenities. With the Maya shopping Mall behind you, the sois to the right are even numbered, and those to the left are odd numbered.

It is within the alleys interconnecting these sois, away from the bustle that characterizes Nimman Road, that you find alluring residential buildings , villas and apartments. It isn’t difficult to find rentals as there are plenty of signs to indicate that. Such is the level of safety in these alleys that people leave the back doors open to let in the gentle afternoon breeze.
