The Smart Choice for Renting in Bangkok
On the 15th of May 2009, the BTS Sky Train in Bangkok made a momentous advancement. For the first time in almost a decade and in fact for the first time since the first trains started to role in December 1999, the BTS opened two new stations, Krung Thonburi and Wong Wian Yai.
These two stations have helped benefit Bangkok is several ways in one massive stroke.
These include but are certainly not exclusive to:
1). Easing the congestion at the Saphan Taksin Bridge connecting Thonburi to the Sathorn district. A junction that handles over 80 000 vehicles a day, many of which are occupied by only one person.
2). Linking the tranquil and up and coming area of Thonburi to the main transport system of Bangkok City Centre.
3). Allowing an estimated 50 000 Bangkokians to get to work smoothly and on time, many who work in the CBD area of Sathorn and Silom.
4). At last linking a Metro system over the Chaophraya River, allowing those who live either side of the River of Kings to travel safely, cheaply and comfortably to work or home.
So why is Metro Park Sathorn particularly interesting and why is it the smart choice for those
looking for the best budget accommodation Bangkok has to offer?
Well unlike many of the other new developments that have sprung up around the two new BTS stations, Metro Park Sathorn has kept its prices low and highly competitive, whilst at the same time presenting the residents with a great quality, highly maintained and very attractive condominium development.
With a private shuttle bus operating from 6am to 12am (the same times at the Sky Train) and running regular services every 30 mins, to and from the nearest station Wong Wian Yai, Metro Park is at least as convenient if not more so than many of the condos and apartments in Sukhumvit and Silom which alos have shuttle services to and from the respective nearest BTS stations, but have to also deal with heavy traffic in many sub sois.
When the shuttle bus leaves the car park at Metro Park it has to travel under 4km to Wang Wian Yai BTS station. But unlike in the City Centre, the 4km distance does not take 30 minutes to travel, but actually the journey is only approximately 1km per minute and so the shuttle bus can complete the journey under 5 mins easily, and the residents can arrive in at the BTS in Air Conditioned comfort. Then it’s a quick trip on the train straight through to Siam Square in under 20 minutes.
In fact a Metro Park Resident can quite easily travel from their front door to Siam Square in under 25 minutes, something many residents on Sukhumvit can not claim even though they are paying 200-300% more for their accommodation than those at Metro Park.
