A buzzing nightlife and some of the most mouthwatering food that the world has to offer. Fresh coconuts and serene massages. With 50 districts and just over 8 million people, Bangkok is a sprawling metropolitan hub with something that everyone can enjoy. It is no wonder that people flock to Thailand each year, some choosing to make it a home away from home. When deciding on a condo in Bangkok, there are a few key points to keep in mind before settling into a new life of luxury in the heart of one of the world’s greatest cities.
All About Location
If you want to start a new life of luxury in some of the best areas that Bangkok has to offer in terms of both style and price, consider searching in areas that can offer both nightlife and daytime activities. Look for shopping mall outlets, restaurants, and international hospitals. Some of the most impressive condos are situated perfectly alongside the winding slow curve of the Chao Phraya river. From a luxury riverside condo, you can watch the sun dip below the city skyline and enjoy the beautiful little boats make their way down the meandering river. The River Condo (called เดอะ ริเวอร์ คอนโด in Thai), just next to the ICONSIAM shopping mall, offers a bustling city area with breathtaking views overlooking the well-renowned Shangri-La and Lebua State Tower.
One major factor in choosing a condo is of course transportation. In what is pretty much the most congested city on earth, that should definitely factor in when deciding on your new sanctuary.
Beating the Traffic
Cutting down commute time and taking advantage of public transportation starts with the right location. Look for condos that are easily accessible to Bangkok’s public transport systems. Some of the most popular are:
- The BTS, Bangkok’s sky train system
- The MRT, Bangkok’s subway system
- Chao Phraya river boats, an affordable and unique method of travel
By finding a condo near at least two of these options, you will dramatically decrease your commute time and truly enjoy yourself in the city, saving both money, time and stress.
The Right Fit
Not all condos are created equal, so be sure to search for a place that is right for you. Condos in Bangkok are a great way to live a luxurious life in a vibrant city. Furthermore, the Chao Phraya River is a wonderful location to fully appreciate the beauty and chaos that is Bangkok.
