Neighborhood suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I don't know BKK as well as I should and now I'll be moving there for a teaching position 

 

I mostly stay in the Sukhumvit area when I visit the city but living there is out of my budget. I was thinking about the Patumwan or Narathiwat area.

 

I'd love some suggestions, gotta be some hidden gems around

I wouldn't live in Sukhumvit unless someone paid me to do it. Try Ratchada and Huai Khwang. Just a few stations away from Sukhumvit.

Budget would be 15k a month or so. 

Lots to choose from around On Nut and Phra Khanong.

Sukumvit 50 and 52, or near abouts.

On Nut BTS. Tesco, Tops, Big C...all close.

Lots of restaurants and pubs/ bars. Cheap Charlies has moved to Soi 50.

Bargains can be found. Big 50sqm+ down to 34sqm.  12,000 and up. Decent large 1 bedrooms for 17,000 and up. 

I know an agent that specials in the area....if you're interested.

Cross Sukhumvit and head up 77 to the Lumpini buildings and you can get 30sqm condos for ฿7,000.  If you avoid the condos and instead focus on apartment buildings, you can find ฿5,000 units.  Just have to avoid the agents and go directly to the buildings.  Lots of apartments on the side sois off 71.

Both of these sound great. I'll do some hunting this week. I'm back in BKK tomorrow evening

Which would you prefer:

 

1. To be within walking distance from MRT in a nice neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, bars and street action and pay 30,000-60,000/month rent?

 

2. Commute 4 hours a day to and fro to some desolate neighborhood with nothing but rundown slum housing on buses and expensive (and dangerous) motorcycle "taxis" or Grab and pay 3000-10,000/month rent?

I found several places near the BTS that were very affordable in the Phra kangong and on nut area with more than I need. 

 

I live quite simply,

I would seriously suggest one of the condos along the river. There's zero traffic noise, most of the good condos have their own ferry which drops you at Sathorn pier, you jump off and take the escalator to the BTS (Saphan Thaksin). Lovely breeze from the river if you leave your balcony open, sit and enjoy your beer in the evening. Rents are lower than in the Sukhumvit area

Huay Kwang is only a few minutes MRT to Asoke....plenty cheap apartments there with shopping and food stuffs..don't have to go far...I could commute in 4 Hours from Pattaya..
