Many have been struggling to find and rent a home in Bangkok. This happens mostly to our expats friends who have moved to Thailand and that is why we are interested in bringing this up in order to lessen some of the burdens. Many races and societies are found in the lifestyle of Bangkok city. Highlights that make “Housing in the center of the city” the top ratings are because of its great venue for business centers, the convenience to commute, nightlife and other perks.
So where are the top 5 BTS stations to rent a home in Bangkok? Based on our years of experience in property rental & management, here are the recommendations:
Thong Lo runs along with the Thong Lo BTS station on Sukhumvit Line of the Bangkok SkyTrain. This area has become home to many expats because of the relocation of luxury condos and the sophisticated vibe from the place. Many people have noticed the relaxing and calming atmosphere when they decide to rent a home in the area. For this reason, Thong Lo is also popular for global cuisines, especially Japanese restaurants that provide the famous food menu. What’s more is you will find yourself surrounded by upmarket, impressive malls, supermarkets and convenience stores such as 7/11, Tesco Lotus or Big C. Besides, living in Thong Lo you will never get bored, there are many classy bars, rooftop lounges along the street of Thong Lo which is only minutes walks away from the BTS of Thong Lo.
Ekkamai is also regarded as part of the Sukhumvit Line and is just one station away from Thong Lo BTS. You might find this area pretty much the same as what Thong Lo has offered. Individuals have come to rent a home in Ekkamai due to the fact that there are always things to do, to eat and to see. Ranging from international cuisines to local food, Ekkamai has provided the cheapest food choices as well as for vegetarians you will struggle to find places to eat as there are lots of cafes providing healthy organic vegetarian food.
If you feel like escaping from the bustling life in the city, you might wanna experience taking a few hours to ride on the bus to the outside of Bangkok. The bus terminal operates many buses to other parts of Thailand and can be easily found nearby the Bts station of Ekkamai. During the weekend, you might want to go for a movie date with your loved ones at the cinema just a few minutes’ walk from the BTS station of Ekkamai or experience the Thai boxing (Muay Thai) class at Gateway- the biggest shopping mall in the area. For those who love shopping, don’t worry!! Gateway and other malls such as Index mall have provided a variety of products ranging from clothing, souvenir, household products and even a supermarket that you can shop for daily prepared meals or ingredients at Max Value.
Asoke is the heart of all operations of Bangkok’s business and commercial centers. The BTS Skytrain of Asoke conveniently eases the residents in commuting from one place to another. Many office towers and learning centers are hosted in this area as the dramatic growth of working professionals and individuals have been witnessed in the area. Besides, you might find other goodies such as international cuisines ranging from Western to Asian, malls and fitness clubs.
A well-known mall in this exciting area is Terminal 21, where you will be surprised to taste different types of food with very budgeted cost on the 4th floor of the mall and well many other stuff that you would want to reward yourself after work. You would love to carry activities like jogging, picnic or a long walk at Benjakitti Park located 5 minutes away from the Asoke Bts Skytrain. Housing in this area is considerably priced as this area is connected to almost every part of Bangkok from the Bts line / MRT line.
When hearing Phrom Phong, the first thing that comes to our mind will be the elite and high class of society. It is also another commercially focused area with upper-class citizens and foreigners with families. This area has no shortage of places to rent, however, there is one thing you need to know, you might need to spend a premium to rent a home here and to spoil yourself with the luxury.
If you are a fan of branding stuff, then Emporium and Emquartier ( the world-class shopping malls in the area) will be your destination. These two malls are just connected to the BTS of Phrom Phong that can be easily found. When you are too bored of noisy city life, you can always catch the sense of relaxation and peace at Benjasiri Park with relaxing outdoor spaces- long walk, or exercises that is located only minutes away from the Phrom Phong Bts.
Sathorn is another suitable place if you want to accommodate luxurious things and enjoy the finest things in life. It is also another area that operates the business and commercial flows of Bangkok’s economy. However, asides from tall buildings, or office towers that you might find in this area, there are more to appreciate. For one thing, you will experience the feeling of escaping from the busy town with a beautiful green area with wide paths and pretty lakes close to Lumpini Park.
Many other impressive restaurants, bars, or clubs are to be found in the area as well, giving you a mixture of city and countryside. This area is welcoming mature expats who want to live and work in Thailand but wish to live away from some other areas of Bangkok that may have a less desirable reputation.
The mentioned areas above have become home to many ex-pats especially Japanese who have established some of their cultures and can be witnessed through the significant growth of some Japanese institutions and restaurants in the areas.
