Exclusive residences now dot the Thai Capital’s skyline, with some of these glamorous residential projects fetching astronomical price tags.
… So where do Bangkok’s rich and famous live?
… What are Bangkok’s most expensive roads?
According to a recent article by The Nation a study was conducted by The Thai Treasury Department. This study compiled data estimates of Bangkok’s priciest and most expensive land plots during the periods 2016- 2019.
Here are the most expensive roads in the Capital according to that study:
*Conversion 1 Sq. Wah. = 4 square meters
1. Silom Road (Bt700,000-Bt1 million per sq.wah)
Often considered the original Bangkok Central Business District, its position at the top of the list is no surprise. Silom Road exudes an aura of “establishment” and is considered one of the Capital’s most desirable residential addresses.
The area is incredibly well-positioned and ultra-convenient, located at the “intersection” of Bangkok’s major business districts notably Wireless-Lumpini, Sukhumvit and Siam. Silom Road offers a unique living experience with charming leafy sois (Sideroads) peppered with independent shops and an eclectic lifestyle.
2. Phloen Chit Road (Bt900,000 per sq.wah)
Phloen Chit Road is an exclusive stretch of road that connects two exclusive neighborhoods Ploenchit and Chidlom. The area is a popular lifestyle destination, with a chic selection of classy leisure venues and hangout spots.
Despite only being approximately 1.1 Km in length, the area is a luxury destination with the presence of 2 super-luxury malls notably Central Chidlom and Central Embassy catering to local residents. The area is also a bustling business hotspot with the presence of numerous office towers.
3. Rajadamri Road (Bt750,000-Bt900,000 per sq.wah)
Rajadamri Road is a highly-coveted residential road that connects Siam and Silom. The neighborhood has historically had exclusive and strong ties to Thailand’s elite.
The road is pleasantly set alongside two expansive greenspaces, “The Royal Bangkok Sports Club” Thailand’s first racecourse and “Lumpini Park” Central Bangkok’s largest Public Park. This gives the area a relaxed, laidback and refreshing environment; this is complemented by its central well-connected location and convenience.
4. Rama I Road (Bt400,000-Bt900,000 per sq.wah)
Rama I Road and the Siam neighborhood need no introduction; the area is incredibly hip and trendy, it is famous for being Bangkok’s premier shopping and leisure district.
It is important to note that the neighborhood is located next to Chulalongkorn University campus, making it a vibrant and popular student hub. This complements its status as one of Bangkok’s most visited neighborhoods by international travelers.
