Phetchburi Rd Condos Popular with Teachers

EasyHomes Bullet Bangkok Accommodation Options for Expat Teachers – Part 4

In the final part of our series on Bangkok condos and apartments suited for teachers, we take a look at some of the rental properties around the New Phetchburi Rd area.

Making a Start – The Online Search for Accommodation

Thai lady searching onlineIf you are a teacher who has just arrived in Bangkok looking for a place to rent in the city, then our Search By: International School & University tool can help you find available homes close to your school or college.

Bangkok’s real estate market is fairly new when compared to other property markets in large cities around the world. If you come from a European city like London, Paris, or Munich, or even a US city like New York or Chicago, then the Thai capital will seem quite undeveloped in comparison.

It’s true that Bangkok’s property market has a lot of development ahead of it until it reaches the standards of most western cities, but don’t be put off by first appearances.  This city has a plethora of fine accommodation options catering for all budget levels and expectations. You will most probably find something that suites your needs using our online search feature, or at least come up with a shortlist of potential accommodation choices for consideration.

Accommodation Choices in the Phetchburi Road Area

One district of Bangkok to see the development of new condos and apartments in recent years has been the Phetchburi road area. This is thanks largely to the opening of the Makkasan Airport link station and easy access to the Phetchburi MRT station. Two of the most exciting condos in Phetchburi at the time or writing are the Address Asoke and The Circle condominium.

The Address Asoke, a Luxury High-rise Condominium

At 44 stories tall, The Address Asoke is one of Bangkok’s luxury high-rise condos. There are 574 units in total of various sizes and rents. Units include smart studios, plus one and two bed choices, all of which are of a quality you would expect from a construction of this stature.

The Address Asoke

The Address Asoke gives residents easy access to Suvanabhumi airport, with the journey taking just 15 to 20 minutes by express train. From this building you can also get onto the MRT underground train and be at Sukhumvit in around two minutes or Ratchada in just five minutes.  This condominium is in a prime location for Bangkok, thanks to its close proximity to both the city’s BTS  and MRT metro rail networks.

The Circle Condominium New Petchburi Road

Then Circle is a mid-range Bangkok condominium building located within walking distance of the Phetchburi MRT station. It offers fantastic views of the city and has proved to be a great choice for teachers wishing to have access to either the East of the city via the Airport Link, or the Northern districts via the underground MRT subway.

Circle Condominium Petchaburi

As with many mid to high end Bangkok condos and apartments, The Circle provides its residents with excellent facilities, including a spacious lobby area, swimming pool, sun deck, and fitness center, as well as the standard car parking and 24hr security.

The break-through for condominiums in Phetchburi Road came about when the airport link was finally opened. This line enabled passengers to travel from Suvarnabhumi Airport to the city center, with a number of stops in between.  This has created a new dynamic for Bangkok and its teachers working in the area. Many of the schools located in the east of the city can now be reached quickly and easily via the new Airport link. See other accommodation options here.

    I don’t think the salary of many English teachers would see them living at those condos madam?

    Hi Hector and thanks for your comments.

    Not all teachers in Bangkok are teaching English, but there are some very good salaries out there for all kinds of teaching positions, including English teachers. For example, schools like ISB and NIST a teacher can earn up to 200,000 Baht/Mo, and for those who come out here on expat packages may even get a housing allowance on top of that. There are also some well-paid positions for foreigners in universities and the lesser known international schools. I believe that some of these well-paid teaching jobs can be found at international school hiring fairs.

    I agree that TEFL teachers working in high street language schools would probably not want to, or be able to, afford living in mid to high end condos, but there are many other types of teachers in the capital that can and do.

    I think so, about the way to find an accommodations in Bangkok by using the computer. It’s an easy way to get more information about condos or houses that suitable for our budget before considering.

    Not sure how the last comment relates to the article, but I will have my say. I teach English and maths basics in Bangkok and although I’m not at the 200,000 Baht monthly salary, I am over 140,000 Baht. Some of my colleagues who teach at a higher level exceed 200,000 Baht, at least with fringe benefits they do. Despite it all, I still wouldn’t spend more than 25,000 Baht on rental accommodation, but that’s a personal choice.
