Always trying to bring you the latest Bangkok Real Estate news and moves on the Bangkok property market, this EasyHomes Bangkok property blog has decided to take a look at the new Bangkok BRT bus system, that recently opened in the Sathorn, Narathiwat, Rama 3 and Thonburi areas of Bangkok.
In May 2010, the BMA (Bangkok Metropolitan Association) opened up the Bangkok BRT (Bangkok Rapid Transit) for the public. The first BRT line runs a total of 16.5Km from Sathorn, where it links with the Chong Nonsi BTS station, all the way along Rama 3 and over the river into Thonburi, where it stops at its 12th BRT station at Ratchapruek. This offers increased benefits and convenience for 10 000’s of residents of the Bangkok condos and apartments that exist alongside the new line.
The new BRT is a blessing for those living in the Sathorn district of Bangkok, on Rama 3 road and of course those people on our near the Chaophraya River. And of course those working in Bangkok’s CBD will now find it easier to commute along thoroughfares such as Rama 3 and Narathiwat roads So let’s have a look at some of the condos and apartments that will benefit from this new convenient and great value form of Bangkok transport.
Further up the line towards the Sathorn station there is the Yenakart BRT station, which makes life easier for those who live in the Yenakart are of Bangkok. There are some great value condos and apartments in the Yenakart district, but perhaps the pick of the bunch in terms of quality is The Lofts Yenakart, which is a Grade A condominium housing 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom units.
| The Lofts Yenakart features a large swimming pool, gymnasium, car parking and sun deck, but it is the quality of the fixtures and fittings that make this such a great Bangkok condominium to rent in the Sathorn area of Bangkok.
However the Bangkok BRT does not only serve and benefit those in Sathorn, but also those on Rama 3, after all this new system stretches for 16.5Km. So those renting Bangkok condos or apartments along Rama 3 will also find the new Bangkok BRT bus system very convenient.
Lumpini are one of the biggest developers in Thailand and in Bangkok, building many convenient and well designed condominium buildings in prime and popular areas of Bangkok. LPN Narathiwat-Chaophraya condo is just such a building and is located near the Chaophraya river’s water’s edge on Rama 3 road.
The Bangkok BRT line then stretches over the Rama 3 bridge and into Thonburi, where in the future it will link up with the BTS when the stations are complete. However it is still convenient for those living in Thonburi and those living in Metro Park Sathorn. This is a great value Bangkok condominium and due to its location in a quiet suburb of Bangkok, just on the outside of the city center, the atmosphere is peaceful.
| And at just THB 8 000/month to rent a Studio condo or just THB 10 000/month to rent a 1 bedroom condo at Metro Park Sathorn, this really is low cost living, at a high-level.
