Thonglor is on the Sukhumvit BTS line, 3 stops east of Asok, between Phromphong and Ekkamai. Sukhumvit Soi 55 (or ‘Soi Thonglor) runs from Sukhumvit Road to Petchaburi Road and gives easy access to the BTS station and also the Airport Link as well as the Rama 9 and Rama 4 highways.
Thonglor is generally thought of as a ‘hi-so’ area which means it’s popular amongst the wealthier inhabitants of Bangkok. This is particularly noticeable in the evenings when it’s not uncommon to see Ferraris and Lamborghinis parked outside trendy wine bars and lively clubs.
However it’s not only the super rich who live in Thonglor, and it has long been a favourite for young, working expats and Thais who enjoy the convenience and lifestyle of the area. There are many co-working spaces and office buildings close to the BTS and you’re never far from a great coffee shop or some delicious street food.
The Commons is a popular community mall with pop-up stalls selling art, home-made clothes and jewelry, with a great selection of food and drink downstairs. It’s also one of the only pet-friendly malls in Bangkok so expect to see a few furry friends hanging out too.
Thonglor or ‘Thong Lo’ is named after a naval officer and member of the Khana Ratsadon (People's Party), Thonglo Khamhiran. He along with many other navy families owned land and houses in the area before World War 2. The rough translation of Thonglor is ‘Molten Gold’, and Soi 55 is often referred to as the Golden Mile.
The area really became a popular place to live around the year 2000 and thanks to the entrepreneurs opening shops, restaurants and bars, many condos and apartments have been built and the development snowballed. There are now thousands of rooms for rent in Thonglor to suit every budget.
With such a large choice of condos and apartments for rent in Thonglor, there is something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a huge penthouse to live the high life, a comfortable 2 bedroom for you and your partner, or a simple studio to call a base while you’re out enjoying the city, we have an option for most budgets.
Here are just a few of our recommendations to suit different budgets.
Thonglor is actually a great area if you have a dog. The Dog Park 49 offers a play area, pool, and cafe and is a great way to spend the day and meet fellow pet owners in Thonglor. The Commons community mall is also pet friendly and you’ll often find diners and shoppers with their dogs (or even cats) in tow.
Finding a pet friendly condo for rent in Thonglor is not easy, but also not impossible. Most landlords are more lenient towards dogs than cats but there are a few apartments accepting dogs and cats in the area.
Although Thonglor is now densely populated with condos and apartments, there are still plenty of single houses and townhouses available for rent.
Bearing in mind that Thonglor is now arguably the most popular location in Bangkok, rental prices for houses are often high. It’s also worth noting that development tends to emanate from the BTS station outwards so houses are usually further away and down small sub-sois.
If you really have your heart set on a house then there are some amazing options hidden away, often with gardens, private or shared pools, and usually with 24 hour security. As these are harder to find it’s best to call us and have a chat so we know exactly what you’re looking for.
When people ask us ‘what are the best condos in Thonglor?’ it’s a really tough question to answer, as everyone has different needs, budgets, and tastes. However there are a few sois which stand out. Here are our picks and some background info.
Soi 13 connects Thonglor to Phromphong and is an easy route to Samitivej Hospital. As well as A LOT of Japanese restaurants, the popular Seenspace mall is also on this soi which has a large open area for eating and drinking from the various outlets within.

Walking up this soi from Sukhumvit Road you’ll find 3 very cool bars within 5 minutes. WTF Gallery and Cafe is a cocktail bar which regularly puts on art exhibitions. Studio Lam is a bar/club hosting live music events. Aqua 51 is a small Japanese style bar lit with neon and with retro games machines.
For nearby condos and apartments for rent have a look at…
Soi 10 runs from Thonglor to Ekkamai, so a great location to live if you enjoy travelling between the neighbourhoods. At the Ekkamai end you have the Donki Mall with 5 floors of Japanese shops and restaurants and at the Thonglor end you have Wine Republic, Violett, and more nightlife venues in a 500m radius than we can count.
If this sounds good to you then look into…
One other reason for Thonglor’s popularity is the abundance of schools in the area. There are international schools catering to many curriculums and all within a short distance of Sukhumvit Soi 55. Here are just a few…
For many people convenience is king, and proximity to the BTS is the first priority. This is certainly the case in Thonglor so please see a list of condos and their relative distance to the BTS station by walking.
