Bangkok is a busy city and attracts all sorts of visitors from vacationers to business travellers. Most of the business travellers to Bangkok are always on the lookout for a good option for accommodation in the city. While there is no dearth of options, choosing the right home or condo that suits your preferences and budget is a tough task.
There are many different options while it comes to properties in Bangkok. One can opt from basic condos to luxurious serviced apartments or บ้านเดี่ยว or townhomes in Bangkok. Your budget and requirements are the main factors that determine which type of accommodation to choose.
There are many condos, studio apartments and one and two bedroom apartments in Bangkok. The cost of the apartments depends on the location of the apartment and the amenities offered at the complex. The rents of the apartments closer to the main markets and the BRT and MTS stations tends to be higher when compared to the apartments in remote and far away locations. Hiring an apartment closer to BRT station is better idea even if it costs a bit higher because it saves time and money in transportation.
If you are looking for spacious options, opt for บ้านเดี่ยว or town homes in Bangkok. The prices of town homes start at THB 7000 upwards. The cost depends on the facilities provided at the home and the locality. Renting a detached home has its share of advantages and disadvantages. While there is plenty of space and privacy, security is a major issue that bothers the residents of single homes.
Most of the บ้านเดี่ยว in Bangkok do not have additional facilities like clubhouse, gym and swimming pool. Maintenance is also a big issue for detached homes and single homes as there is no designated staff to look after the repairs and maintenance of the house.
However, the benefits of a บ้านเดี่ยว far outweigh the disadvantages. So if you want a bigger home with lots of privacy and have the required budget, opt for a centrally located town home that has modern amenities. The single homes and town homes in the developing localities of the city tend to be cheaper and well-furnished when compared to the old houses at the city centre.
