Why Rent or Buy in Thonglor?

Thonglor is well known for being a hub of nightlife in Bangkok from upmarket fine-dining to trendy tucked away dive bars, and everything in between. The area is also full of shops, gyms, spas, and everything else you need to enjoy the Bangkok lifestyle.


Bangkok Condo Rentals have many condos and apartments for rent in Thonglor ranging from 20k per month upwards, so please browse through our listings or give us a call to discuss if you think this neighbourhood would be a good fit for you.


What is Thonglor Like as a Neighbourhood?


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.


History of Thonglor


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.


Condominiums and Costs


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.


Affordable


  • The Ivy - Located right on Soi 55, The Ivy is a large building popular amongst expats. It’s about as central as you can get. While not that close to the BTS station, it’s just a short walk from J-Avenue, Seenspace, and The Commons. Prices start from around 25-30k for 1 beds or studios.
  • Rhythm 36 - 38 - A modern building just a few minutes walk from the BTS located on the quieter side of Sukhumvit Road. Great facilities but slightly smaller rooms, the studios start from as low as 20k per month, with larger 1 beds around 40-50k.

  • HQ by Sansiri - Very close to Eight Thonglor, the HQ is a newer building and rooms are more modern at very similar prices but slightly smaller.
  • Noble Remix - Connects directly to BTS Thonglor, so no more getting wet in rainy season. This is a large building with many types of rooms ranging from studios and 1 beds from 25k+ to 3 beds from 70-90k.

Pet-Friendly Condos and Apartments


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.


  • M Thonglor is a modern building on Soi 10, with rooms from 20-45k depending on the size. The building is totally pet friendly so as long as the landlord is ok with it, your dog can roam around the common areas with you.
  • Ashton Morph 38 is another modern building very close to the BTS on the quiet side of Sukhumvit Road, and also allows cats and dogs.
  • The Habitat on Soi 53 is an older building but with much larger rooms, so if you have a larger dog this might be a good choice.

Houses to Rent in Thonglor


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.
