In the previous part 1 of this blog Bangkok condos and apartments to rent in Sukhumvit where highlighted. And although there are many great condos and apartments for lease in Sukhumvit it is not always suitable for all. If you do not work in or near Sukhumvit then accommodation for rent in Sukhumvit is of no use to you.
In this blog we will look at other locations suitable for expats and particularly condos and apartments teachers to rent in Bangkok. We will highlight an example for each of the following areas: Condos and apartments for rent in Ratchada, condos and apartments for rent in Sathorn, condos and apartments for rent in Thonburi and finally condos and apartments for rent in Phahonyothin near Ari.
Firstly though we will look at the accommodation for teachers in the Ratchada area of Bangkok. Ratchada also known as Ratchadaphisek has seen a huge amount of development in the last 5-6 years. What used to be a semi-industrial through road has become a thriving and inviting residential area. Highlights include the Esplanade center, the new Central Mall at Rama 9 and dozens of beautiful modern condominiums including Life@Sutthisan, Life@Huaykwang , the Ideo Huaykwang and the Ivy Ratchada.
| Life@Ratchada-Sutthisan condo or sometimes referred to as just Life@Sutthisan condo to avoid confusion is a new well located condo, less than 50m from the Suthisan MRT station. Life@Suthisan condominium is a high-rise building with a swimming pool, sun-deck, gym, car park and 24hr security.
Like all Life@ condominiums, Life@Sutthisan is modern, clean and well designed with a great use of space in all 3 types of units: Studio partition/ 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom units.
The next location is a big jump geographically from Ratchada, but is not too far from the MRT, with the nearest MRT station being Silom MRT station. However the nearest BTS station is only 5 mins walk away at Chon Nonsi BTS station.
The Ivy Sathorn is a well located, well constructed and stylish condominium in the heart of Sathorn, which is sometimes referred to as Bangkok’s CBD. The Ivy Sathorn like Life@Sathorn and other Life@ condos is configured into Studio partition/ 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom units.
| The Ivy Sathorn , also like the Life@ condos uses space optimally and the lay-outs often look larger than they are and of course the higher floors offer great vies of the city lights and sky-line.
There are many schools in the Sathorn, Silom and even Rama 3 areas and all are easily reachable from this location. The Ivy Sathorn offers luxurious living with a swimming pool, gym, car parking and security all at good value for money prices.
Just over the river from Sathorn is Thonburi and like Ratchada this area of Bangkok has seen rapid development in recent years, and in just the last 2 years has seen the development of hundreds of well constructed and well thought our condo to rent near Krungthonburi BTS station and Wong Wien Yai BTS station.
There have been several Ideo condominiums built which like the Ideo Huaykwang, offer great facilities and units. However possibly the best condominium for rent in Thonburi is Villa Sathorn The condo units to rent at Villa Sathorn are Studios, 1 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms and 3 bedrooms. Villa Sathorn offers the same facilities and ease of location to the BTS as Life@ condos, Ideo condos and Ivy condos, but where Villa Sathorn beats these condos in on space and therefore value for money.
| Villa Sathorn has one bedroom units starting at the same price as Studios at Ivy Sathorn, Life@Sathorn etc and yet they offer 10sqm more. And quality is not compromised either, as Villa Sathorn offers not only the same facilties, a swimming pool, gym, sun-deck, car parking and even garden area, but also with excellent fixtures and fittings.
Finally we look at the area in North Bangkok which is near the Ari and Saphan Kwai BTS stations. The Ideo Mix in Phahonyothin offers again another well constructed, well designed and well configured building only 5 mins walk from the BTS.
