Understanding the Bangkok Property
Bangkok is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. The city occupies 1,568.7 square kilometres in the Chao Phraya River delta in Central Thailand, and has a population of over 8 million, or 12.6 percent of the country’s population. Over 14 million people live within the surrounding Bangkok Metropolitan Region, making Bangkok an extreme primate city, dwarfing Thailand’s other urban centres in terms of importance.
Why Invest In Bangkok Property?
Low Cost Of Living
The cost of living in Thailand and Bangkok is a highly contested subject; long-term expats complain that prices are skyrocketing, whilst first time tourists are left in awe of how cheap everything is as they chow-down their $1 plates of fried rice outside their $10 a night guestrooms. The truth is, living in Thailand, or more specifically Bangkok, can be as cheap or as expensive as you make it. Whilst that might seem like an easy answer, the price spectrum between budget and luxury is often huge.
Many catalytic projects to drive the economy & tourism further
- Super Tower – A Thai property developer has announced plans to build a skyscraper in the Thai capital that will be among the 10 tallest buildings in the world when it is completed in 2019. The 125-storey tower will rise 615 metres and include a luxury six-star hotel with 260 rooms, offices and an observation deck with panoramic views of the Thai capital and rooftop garden
- Hi Speed Rail
- Extension of the BTS and MRT Lines
Comprehensive Mass transit system
Yes, Bangkok’s traffic is notorious with good reason. It’s very easy to get caught up in gridlock traffic any time of the day or night, and waste a lot of valuable time in the process. However, with excellent and modern public transport systems in place, Bangkok is surprisingly easy to navigate your way around.
The Skytrain (BTS) and underground (MRT) rail systems connect the main shopping, entertainment and business areas of the city
Safe, they welcome tourists
International tourist arrivals in Thailand are expected to reach a record high in 2016 after nearly 30 million foreigners came to its temples, beaches and bars in 2015.

Ideal for Short Weekend getaways
A return trip from Bangkok can be as cheap as below S$100. A 3 days 2 nights trip may cost you even lesser than a staycation in any 5* hotels in Singapore during the weekend.
Shopping & Eating Paradise
The variety of shopping experiences in Bangkok goes far beyond a stroll in a mall or a morning spent browsing a market. Shopping in Bangkok is a day-and-night activity that runs parallel with the best in the West, while also giving a flavour of the cultural uniqueness of the East.
There’s no shortage of eating options in Bangkok. Eat in a roadside noodle stall and watch the world go by. Savour seafood at a local restaurant perched over the river; enjoy exquisite food from a swish hotel restaurant overlooking the city; or take a quick snack in a shopping mall food court. Whatever you choose, and wherever you are staying, you won’t be disappointed.
Bangkok has something for everyone to enjoy, be it when the sun is shining or long after it’s gone down. Besides the fun bargaining at vibrant night markets and a delightful dinner cruise along the ‘River of Kings’, what could be better than spending time with your family at the city’s finest cinemas, karaoke, and bowling alleys before calling it a night.
Nightlife in Bangkok has evolved over the years, with the emphasis now firmly on swanky rooftop bars, lively nightclubs and hip cocktail bars. The Thai capital now has so much more to offer than just the adult-themed fun of Patpong, Nana and Soi Cowboy.
