Phrom Phong is famous for having lots of high-end top quality condos and apartments. In fact some of the most famous and most expensive Sukhumvit apartments and condos are found in this area.
Here are a few examples of the sort of condos and apartments we are referring to:
The Madison, located in Sukhumit soi 43 this condo offers easy access to both The Emporium shopping center, and Phrom Phong BTS station, both within a 3-4 minute walk of this luxury Bangkok condominium building, no wonder large two bedroom units go for THB 80 000 – 100 000/month.
Emporio Place, situated in Sukhumvit soi 24 is a brand new condo building in the same road as The Emporium and has great access to Rama IV and other sub-sois including Sukhumvit Soi 22 – soi 16. This condominium is one of Sukhumvit’s most stylish and best quality, and a two bedroom duplex unit will make this condo an expensive rental in Bangkok at THB 100 000 for 120sqm.
And it is not just condos in Phrom Phong that are expensive, also the apartments in mid-Sukhumvit are expensive. Anyone who knows about central Sukhumvit knows that it is very Japanese area, with many Japanese restaurants, Japanese shops and apartments catering for Japanese clients. And Baan Jamjuree, which is a fantastic Bangkok property, with great views and facilities and is almost always full with Japanese and American expats who appreciate high-quality.
These properties are all great condos and apartments in Bangkok, but unless you have THB 60 – 70 000/month minimum to spend on your rent, then they cannot be considered.
