Condos for rent in Bangkok
Bangkok condos for rent come in all shapes and sizes and renting in the city is a great option for many!
In fact, everyone has different reasons to look for a Bangkok condo to rent. It may be a prelude to buying a condo and you just want to find the location which suits you best. Or maybe you’re not sure whether you want a modern condo or prefer an older unit in a more central location.
Some people looking at Bangkok condos for rent may be on short- or mid- term job assignments and, so, prefer, to rent. Or there are “digital nomads” who will rent a condo as they only spend a few months in Bangkok per year. Same with retirees who escape the winter months in the northern hemisphere and rent a condo in Bangkok for the warmth—plus, of course, the excitement offered by the City of Angels!
With over 560,000 condos in the city and immediate surrounding areas, anyone looking at Bangkok condos for rent, certainly has plenty of choice in terms of style and location.
Bangkok condos for rent: preferred locations
Whether it’s work, leisure or retirement which dictates your wish to rent a condo in Bangkok, the most popular locations in the central areas include: Silom/Sathorn, prime Sukhumvit between Sois 2-24 (Prime SKV) and Central Lumpinee (CL).
Down towards the river you can rent a condo in areas such as Charoenkrung/Narathiwad/Rama 3 or, if wanting to live uptown, try Surawongse/Samyan/Siphaya, Sukhumvit Soi 44-70 & Sukhumvit Soi 65-103, Ratchada/Rama 9/Ladprao, Phahonyothin/Phayathai, Petchburi Road, Charoen Nakorn/Thonnburi or even Bangsue/Tao Poon/Pracharat.
If location is not that essential for you when wanting to rent a Bangkok condo, popular peripheral and still developing areas include: Eastern Bangkok (Bangna, Srinakarin, Ramkamhaeng, Theparak, Romklao and Chalermprakiat Road) the high-numbered Sukhumvit Sois (Sukhumvit Soi 105 and 70 to Samutprakran). In a city as big as Bangkok, you can also go to North Bangkok (Ngamwongwan, Chaengwattana, Rattanathibet and Sanambin Nam Road), South Bangkok (Petchkasem, Ratchapruk, Kalaprapruk, Charansanitwongse and Wutthakart Road), as well as higher up Ratchada/Ratchayothin/Late Ladprao (Ratchada, Ladprao, Ratchayothin Road, Kaset Navamin, Ramindra and Nuanchan Road).
Bangkok’s two urban transit systems have opened up new areas for condo rentals
The development of the BTS (Skytrain) and MRT (underground rail) over the last 20-25 years in Bangkok, has opened up many new areas for condo rental in the city.
Almost every new BTS or MRT station has condos to rentwithin close proximity. And, of course, significantly reduced travelling times across a city famous for its road traffic congestion.
Bangkok condos to rent: the choice is yours
Not everyone has a big rental budget but, don’t worry, there are still a number of cheap apartments for rent in Bangkok. Just decide which areas are likely to suit you best and we can help you work it out from there. If you are looking for a condo for rent in Bangkok’s Sathorn or Silom areas to be close to work or just enjoy the city’s night life, your budget may need to be a bit higher. But, again, there’s plenty of choice.
Condos for rent come in all sorts of sizes and configurations in Bangkok, so the best thing is to firstly summarise your key criteria (location, rental budget, size of condo, bedroom layout, etc). Then, you are ready to find an apartment or condo to rent in Bangkok. It’s also wise to contact a professional agent and see what properties he can suggest for you, making renting a condo in Bangkok so much easier for you!
