Obviously, renting a condo in Bangkok is a matter of choosing a location that you feel comfortable with. In this article we provide information on a few of the areas that are very popular with our customers for a number of diverse reasons. It is not really possible to advise you on all of the areas Bangkok offers but we can offer you some basic guidance as to the possibilities in the more desirable areas of the city.
First, Thong Lor, Phrom Phong and Ekkamai have some of the most exclusive condos in Bangkok, with top-class restaurants, nightlife and high-end entertainment venues, which makes them very attractive places to live. All are very close to some of the most frequented British and Irish bars in Phrong Phong and you would be near to the Emporium shopping mall. You can also find a broad range of restaurants and coffee shops nearby and living here is especially desirable for families as there are many international schools for children to attend.
Some of the more favoured condos to rent are the Siri Residence, Condo One X and The Address 28 in Phrom Phong, Noble Remix, Noble Solo and Siri@Sukhumvit in Thong Lor and Noble Reveal and The Address 42 in Ekkamai.
A little bit further to the west you will find the Asoke, Nana, Chidlom and Ploenchit areas, where you will find many bars and restaurants and more out-of-the-way places to dine in Lang Suan. These areas host a number of luxury hotels and shopping malls and in nearby Lumpini Park there a large space to jog or relax.
There are prime-grade condos here such as The Address and The Manhattan in Chidlom and the Athenee Residence and The Crest Ruamrudee in Ploenchit. A bit further down the track you will find Siam a very attractive area for shopping, such as Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery and the Siam Center. It is very convenient for travel, either along the Sukhumvit or Silom line on the BTS, or the nearby connection to Suvarnabhumi International Airport from Phaya Thai.
One of the best places to rent is the Condo One Siam, a low-rise condominium located in one of the most chic areas of the city. Its facilities include a gym and swimming pool and it has easy access to other parts of Bangkok as the BTS is only minutes away.
Further north you will find Ari and Saphan Kwai, which are far more peaceful areas than others in the city. Ari has become a very popular residential area with many coffee houses and upscale restaurants and has some of the best dining experiences Bangkok has to offer. Ari has many top-grade condos for rent, such as the Noble Lite.
A couple of stops along the BTS from Ari is Saphan Kwai. We recommend the Ideo Mix Phalyothin and The Haven. Another strong contender for living in this area is The Silk, which is located near to Sanam Pao BTS.
