If you are renting a condo or apartment in Bangkok or have lived in the city for any length of time you can’t help, but notice the increasing amount of shopping malls, department stores and now open-air lifestyle malls that have sprung up all around the city center of Bangkok.
Of course Siam Square being the center of Bangkok has always been magnet for shoppers looking for bargains. From the MBK to Siam Paragon to Siam square and of course Siam Center there are plenty of shops and outlets. However you don’t have to live in Siam square to be close to a shopper’s paradise.
There are condos that do take advantage of the proximity to Siam square such as Condo one Siam. Condo One Siam only 5 mins walk from Siam square is a great option if you want to rent a condo in Siam square in the mid-end price bracket. Naturally the condo is only 5 mins from a whole host of shops and retail outlets, but it is also an attractive location in a quiet soi.
Condo One Siam comes with a swimming pool, fitness studio, car parking and security and is an attractively designed Bangkok condominium with a good use of space. Condo One Siam features Studio, one bedroom and two bedroom condos covering most Bangkok real estate market demands.
A little further away from the center of Siam square, but certainly still within walking distance of MBK and other shopping venues is the Wish@Siam condominium. The condos for rent in Wish@Siam are compact, but very modern and well designed. There are Studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units. However for those looking to rent at the Wish@Siam the building offers great convenience.
|The Wish@Siam features a courtyard style design with most of the units wrapped around a central pool area, which gives the Wish@Siam a personal feel and makes residents feel like they are at home.
Just one stop away from Siam square on the Sukhumvit line heading towards Bearing BTS station is Chit Lom BTS station and another area surrounded by shopping plazas, departments stores and other retail outlets.
Arriving at Chit Lom BTS station, passengers can go to both Central World and Central Chit Lom as well as Gaysorn Plaza. As Chit Lom is a high-end district the condos and apartments in this location are generally of a more luxurious nature. Q House Lang Suan is one such condominium. Located in Lang Suan, just a few minutes’ walk from Chit lom BTS station, this brand new, but classically designed condominium just feels and oozes luxury all the way.
With excellent fixtures and fittings Q House Langsuan is quality, and anyone looking for a luxurious, exquisitely designed apartment or condo in Bangkok should certainly check out Q-House Langsuan It is certainly not the cheapest condo in Bangkok, but then quality does not come cheap.
|Q-House Langsuan fulfills perhaps all or at least most of the demands of luxury living. With excellent facilities including party rooms, large communal kitchens, BBQ areas, large swimming pool and even a library area Q-House Lang Suan is both a place to relax, party and live extremely comfortably.
|Also in Chit Lom is Urbana Lang Suan, another super luxurious condominium with fabulous facilities. Urbana Langsuan has almost every type of unit possible, from large Studios, one bedrooms, two bedroom, three bedroom and Penthouse units. Urbana LangSuan has something for everyone.
And of course the facilities are more than memorable, with a roof-top swimming pool and sun-deck with fantastic views. A double level fitness center and even a spa and massage area. As well of course saunas and jacuzzis if you need them.
This is real luxury living and if the Urbana Lang Suan condominium itself is not enough, then only a few minutes’ walk away are both the Chit Lom BTS and of course the shopping plaza of both Central Chitlom and Central World.
