What is Thonglor Like as a Neighbourhood?
Thonglor is a neighborhood that seamlessly combines the best of both worlds. It offers a lively and bustling atmosphere, with a wide range of entertainment options, as well as a peaceful and tranquil environment. The area is known for its tree-lined streets, beautiful parks, and serene residential areas, providing a perfect balance between work and play. Thonglor is also conveniently located near major business districts, making it an ideal choice for professionals who want to be close to their workplaces. Furthermore, the neighborhood is well-connected with excellent transportation options, including the BTS skytrain, making it easy to navigate and explore other parts of the city.
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.
searching for a condo for rent in Thonglor, there are several factors to
consider to ensure that you find the perfect fit for your lifestyle and

with varying prices depending on factors such as location, size, and amenities.
Secondly, consider the size and layout of the condo. Are you looking for a

amenities such as supermarkets and restaurants.
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.

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.
