Places to live in Bangkok

From BangkokTap

Bangkok is a massive, thriving city, with countless places to live of all sizes and budgets.

When expats typically move to Bangkok, the common areas to live are along Sukhumvit and Silom roads, which offer western-style accommodation for a fraction of the western costs. Along virtually every stop of the BTS and MRT lines are apartments and condos within a short walking distance. Go a bit further away, you'll find even more at lower costs (and typically take a motorcycle taxi to the BTS/MRT).

Below are list of the general areas to stay in along with some of the options available. You can find these locations by searching on the map for the location.

Tips for Finding a Place to Live

Contracts range from daily, weekly, monthly, 6 months, and 1 year. Newer condos typically require 1 year or 6 month contracts at minimum, often with a 2 month deposit up front.

Agents typically lease condos for their clients, and you are able to negotiate pricing and contract terms depending on the landlord and agent.
