High-end Bangkok Condos for Int Teachers
Bangkok Accommodation Options for Expat Teachers – Part 3
These days, Bangkok’s expat teachers are spoilt for choices when it comes to finding great accommodation near to, or with easy access to, their place of work. In the previous articles in this miniseries, we looked at mid-rage accommodation. For this blog post we will look at those condominiums at the higher end of the housing market.
Luxury Accommodation for Expatriates
These places will obviously be more suited to international school teachers brought out here on expat salaries complete with fringe benefits; which often include a generous housing allowance.
Because international schools are located all over Bangkok, we shall look at some luxury condominiums and apartments in a few areas of the city, starting with the Ari district. Ari is very popular with those teachers wanting to rent homes in a more chilled-out environment than that of the bustling Sukhumvit and Silom districts.
The condos or apartments below are all just a 5-10 minute walk from the BTS Ari Station.
The Villa Rachakhru Condominium
Villa Rachakhru is a low-rise construction located within a seven minute walk of the BTS Ari station. The surrounding shops and restaurants include an open air lifestyle mall (a concept that has become very popular with residents of the Thai capital).
With a roof top swimming pool, sundeck, and gymnasium, this compact, yet well-designed building offers residents all the amenities they could wish for in a luxuriously fitted condominium. Despite its relatively small size, Villa Rachakhru has some excellent one, two, and three bedroom units to offer.
The Villa Rachakhru has a car park, lobby, and 24 hour security as standard, and provides a nice, homely atmosphere for residents; something experienced the moment you enter the foyer.
Luxury Accommodation in the Phaya Thai District
Moving along the BTS line towards Siam Square, there are some terrific, brand new condominiums available for rent close to the BTS, offering both luxury and convenience.
The Ideo Q Condominium, Phaya Thai
This 38-story high-rise condominium project presents definitive living for its residents.
Villa Rachathewi Condominium, Bangkok
Just over the road from the Ideo Q condominium is another splendid building called the Villa Rachathewi. This is also a high-end condo, offering studios, one, two, three bedroom, and duplex units. It really is a fantastic place to rent a comfortable home in the heart of the city.
Not only does Villa Rachathewi provide residents with fantastic views of the city, but it also has first rate facilities to boot. The building’s close proximity to both Phaya Thai and Ratchathewi BTS stations makes this a splendid choice for those looking for that ultimate living experience.
Renting a home here means the popular Siam Square is only five minutes away on the BTS, giving residents quick and easy access to large shopping malls like Siam Paragon or the MBK Center. This is also a very convenient choice for anyone teaching at Chulalongkorn University.
Of course, not all schools are located in the Northern districts of Bangkok, and many expat teachers enjoy living in the more crowded and popular Sukhumvit area of the city, even if they do work north of the capital. Part four, and the final part of this series, looks at some of the most luxurious, and best value for money condominiums in downtown Sukhumvit.
