Each year more teachers come to Thailand looking for apartment and condos to rent in Bangkok. Many are looking for Bangkok accommodation for the very first time, so it is always difficult to know which properties in Bangkok are suitable or unsuitable without a bit of guidance. .
Of course it is impossible to cover the requirements of all teachers in one article, but by looking at a few of the best Bangkok condos and apartments in a few of the best locations in Bangkok it will hopefully give a good idea of what is available on the market.
We will start at looking at Sukhumvit road, the most popular expat location in Bangkok. There are literally dozens of condos and apartments in Sukhumvit suitable for expats, most of course contain swimming pools and gyms, as well as car parking and 24hr security.
The first condo highlighted is Life@65 condo or Life@Sukhumvit 65. This condo was first opened just over 2 years ago and has been a favourite with teachers ever since. A well constructed, well designed and well located condominium, Life@Sukhumvit 65. has ticked a lot of the boxes for a lot of teachers.
Life@Sukhumvit 65. is only 250m from the nearest BTS station in Ekkamai and is also well located for not only shops, restaurants and cinemas, but of course also for a variety of schools where you may be working.
| Life@Sukhumvit 65. offers a large roof-top swimming pool, a large fitness studio and a great sun-deck, ideal for those of you looking to make the most of the tropical climate. The condos themselves come in 3 sizes, a small 1 bedroom/ Studio (with a partition, a full 1 bedroom and 2 bedrooms.
All are well designed and use the interior space to good effect and have a modern and clean feel to them. Life@Sukhumvit 65. is therefore understandably popular with expat teachers.
Moving down the BTS track towards Bang Na, there are a great many international schools, and therefore a good compromise to have access to your school, but also to the bars and restaurants of Sukhumvit is to live in a condo near Udomsuk BTS station. Two of the best condos in this area of Bangkok are The Sense condominium and S & S Condominium.
|The Sense condominiumis a stylish low-rise condo that offers modern amenities and tranquility – a rare gift in Bangkok. The Sense condominiumis only 2 years old and has a swimming pool, gym and car parking. Within a 5-10 mins walk of Udomsuk BTS station, the location is certainly desirable.
Another excellent condominium in the Udomsuk area is S & S Condominium. this time a high-rise with 2 separate buildings sharing the swimming pool and gym. Along with the car parking and 24hr security that many of the other condominiums in Bangkok offer, S & S Condominium. also offers a generous garden area, which is unusual in Thailand.
|S & S Condominium. stands out even if Bangkok’s crowded market as particularly good value for money and it is no wonder that in just 18mths S & S Condominium. has gone from being brand new and empty to being in high demand with 2 bedroom units in particular being in very high demand. S & S Condominium. houses 4 different types of unit, Studios, 1 bedrooms, larger 1 bedrooms and 2 bedroom units.
With easy access to both Udomsuk BTS and an open air shopping mall with Starbucks, supermarkets and even a bowling alley, the location is difficult to beat. And couple that with a probable 10-15mins commute to your school.
