Bangkok’s Key Residential Locations Categorized by CBRE
December 9, 2022
Economic stories have been dominating the news in recent months. Fuel prices, inflation, bank interest rates, and currency exchange rates are at record high levels. Despite all this, one of the four things that people continue to demand is housing. This is particularly true of prime locations. The result is that, even in the current financial climate, the cost of land and homes in desirable areas keeps rising. To assist you in any possible decision to buy a home or make an investment, CBRE will now guide you through some of Bangkok's top residential areas.
Let's start with a general overview of Bangkok, which is split into three areas: Bangkok City (Downtown), Midtown, and Suburban. These three areas consist of many sub-locations.

Real estate values in different locations are influenced by many factors. Public and private projects that invest in or develop an area and the changing nature of urban society are both trends that impact urban growth and the price of real estate.
In contrast to other areas, Bangkok's downtown has seen more development of luxury projects and branded residences due to a limited supply of land in the heart of Bangkok nearby leading facilities like department stores, Lumpini Park, and transportation links like the BTS skytrain, subway, and main roads leading to the Central Business District (CBD) within a few minutes. Most experts agree that there is insufficient land currently available in the CBD that is appropriate for project development, and as the cost increases steadily, the value of land in Ploenchit and Lumpini rises quickly.
