InvestBangkokProperty.com held our quarterly Bangkok Property Tour on the 28th to 30th September 2018. It was a 3-day tour from Friday to Sunday. There were two things different about this tour as compared to previous tours.
1) We were not going to use private transportation. We took public transportation and relied heavily on the BTS and MRT train lines.
2) We were doing this in collaboration with two bloggers, Wilbur from Aroi Mak Mak and Eddie from Stranger in Bangkok.
Day 1 (Friday 28th September 2018)
We gathered at the information counter of Terminal 21. We then proceeded to eat at a noodle stall just next to Terminal 21. After which we had dessert at Paris Miki which is just a stone’s throw away from Terminal 21.
Next, we headed off to take the MRT to Huai Khwang to visit the All Inspire showflat. All Inspire is an award-winning developer and the showflat is near Huai Khwang MRT Station. When we turned out of the MRT Station, we went past the actual site of XT Huai Khwang which is right next to the MRT station. XT Huai Khwang is developed by Sansiri.
At the All Inspire sales gallery, we viewed the show unit of The Excel Ratchada 18. All Inspire produces good quality developments but their developments are not the closest to the train stations. However, their developments are extremely affordable for the average property investor.
Next, we travelled one MRT station to Thailand Cultural Centre to view Noble Revolve 2 which is just next to Thailand Cultural Centre MRT Station and the Stock Exchange of Thailand. Noble Revolve 2 is a completed project.
We then walked to Phra Ram 9 MRT Station instead of taking the train. We passed by the business district. XT Huai Khwang’s sales gallery is located at Pakin Building which is just opposite Central Plaza Grand Rama IX.
Our next stop was Chewathai Residence Asoke by Chewathai. This is a completed development and the unique thing about this development is that all the units are 1-bedroom loft units.
Our final stop was The Line Ratchathewi by Sansiri. The condominium is located about 3 minutes (walk) from Ratchathewi BTS Station.
Here is a video of the highlights for Day 1:
Day 2 (Saturday 29th September 2018)
We started our day with breakfast at Luka Moto (thanks Eddie from Stranger in Bangkok for the introduction!) at The Taste Thong Lor, located at Thong Lor Soi 10. If you are looking for a nice cafe in Thong Lor, do try out this cafe.
Our first stop of the day was to visit the sales galleries of Noble BE 19 and Noble BE 33 by Noble Development. The sales gallery is located at the lobby of Noble Remix which was right next to Thong Lor BTS Station. Noble BE 19 is located close to Terminal 21 and Noble BE 33 is located close to Phrom Phong BTS Station and just around the corner from The EMQuartier.
Next, we went to the sales gallery of The ESSE Sukhumvit 36 and EYSE Sukhumvit 43 by Singha Estate. The ESSE Sukhumvit 36 is located right next to Thong Lor BTS Station and EYSE Sukhumvit 43 is located within walking distance to Phrom Phong BTS Station.
We then took the BTS train to the next BTS Station which is Ekkamai BTS Station. We viewed a development just behind Gateway Ekkamai called Siamese Exclusive 42 by Siamese Asset.
After which we convened for lunch and we had lunch at Gateway Ekkamai. Wilbur from Aroi Mak Mak introduced us to have Izakaya at a Japanese restaurant called Nagiya. It was really good. If you are in Ekkamai, do try out the food at this restaurant.
After lunch, we headed to On Nut BTS and took the shuttle bus to Habito Mall within the T77 Community. The T77 Community is a guarded and gated township developed by Sansiri. It is very unique and one of its kind. You can read more about the T77 Community here:
At Habito Mall, we visited the sales gallery of Kawa Haus by Sansiri.
After Kawa Haus, Sansiri provided us with a van to our next destination, the sales gallery of Oka Haus which is located along Rama 4 road. This was the one and only instance when we took private transportation to our next destination!
After Oka Haus, we were done for the day! We had dinner at Suan Plearn Market which is a stone’s throw away from Oka Haus.
Here are the highlights from day 2:
Day 3 (Sunday 30th September 2018)
Kevin had to fly off to meet a client in Singapore (He was our assigned videographer and thus we did not have enough footage on the 3rd day to make a highlight video) so it was just Daryl along with Wilbur leading everyone for the day!
Our first stop was to view Noble Ploenchit by Noble Developments. Noble Ploenchit is located right next to Ploenchit BTS Station. Most of the participants were impressed by the proximity to the BTS Station. This development is really next to the train station!
For lunch, we went to Eathai Food Court at Central Embassy Shopping Mall which was linked by sky bridge from Noble Ploenchit as well as Ploenchit BTS Station. Prices were rather expensive and surprisingly, the food court was packed! Just shows the spending power of the people who live in the area.
After lunch, we visited the sales gallery of XT Phayathai by Sansiri which is about a 5-minute walk from Phayathai BTS Station. Phayathai BTS Station is two stations after Siam BTS Station.
Our last stop for the day and also the tour was at Park Origin Phayathai which was also very near Phayathai BTS Station. In fact, it is nearer to the BTS Station than XT Phayathai. The development is developed by Origin Property and the architect for the project is Singapore architecture firm, Ong and Ong.
And that concludes our 3 day Bangkok Property Tour!
