Thong Lo or Thonglor is also known as Sukhumvit Soi 55.

Thonglor is a prime residential location because it has so many lifestyle services and amenities, such as restaurants, shopping centres and hospitality venues. The area also has both day-life and night-life as it is located close to BTS, making it very convenient for people travelling between their home and place of work.

According to The Nation newspaper, Thonglor is about to welcome:

The area has also developed a stable rental market offering rental yields in the region of 4-6%. In terms of tenant demographics, the area attracts a mix of expats such as Japanese, Korean and European residents.

According to Plus Property, a real estate agency, the most popular units are one-bedroom condos with 50-55 square metres of space, which fetch a rental price of Bt50,000-Bt60,000 per month.

Nexus Property Market, another real-estate agency, forecasts that demand for condominiums priced between Bt200,000 and Bt360,000 per square metre in the Thonglor area will remain still strong, due to the limited availability of land for new development.

Thonglor will continue to attract quality people who desire a premium lifestyle.
