Chitlom / Langsuan
Central Chitlom, soi Ton Son, Langsuan, Rajdamri... If you are looking for a high standard living then check this place.
From BTS Chitlom you can directly access Central Chitlom and on the other side from the elevated footpath all other major department stores to MBK! Nearby roads include the popular soi Ton Son with the american embassy and nice restaurants, private condos. Langsuan road filled with some of the most luxurious condos you can find in Bangkok, Somkid soi with direct access to Central and of course Rajdamri road with Central World, Big C and again some luxurious condos with views on both the Royal Bangkok Sports Club and Lumpini Park.
This is not easy to rent a condo in Chitlom as the demand is very high. If you can afford it you will definitely love this place, one of the most convenient in Bangkok as you can access two BTS lines with so many shopping centers. Moreover you will even have the luxury of some green space, not always easy to find in Bangkok!
Business men from all around the world invest in condos built around Chitlom and live in there, expatriate and thai people from the higher class. If you look for some exclusive living you should focus on this area.
There are also not only one but two BTS stations covering the area that are BTS Chitlom for the Sukhumvit line and BTS Ratchadamri for the Silom line. From them you can go to almost anywhere in Bangkok (as long as the BTS or MRT goes there).
Something quite new also in Bangkok is the elevated walkway linking Chitlom to Siam. You can easily walk there without being disturbed by the traffic on the streets so this is something you should really consider as well when traveling around.
Having your condo near Central World and Central Chitlom is really a plus! They are two major department store you can access nearby (and should already should be more than enough!). There is also a lot of other nice shopping center in hotel or offices building there, will be difficult to miss them.
For your food needs, you will find it in Central Chitlom or Central World easily but also have a look at Big C Rajdamri for cheaper price and more choices. Then if this is imported food you are looking for you can also check out Villa Market Langsuan.
King Chulalonkorn Memorial Hospital can be accessed from Rajdamri road, it is part of the Chulalongkorn University campus as many students will get to have to work in the hospital as well to complete their studies. It makes it very popular but be aware there might be a long queue as well.
Looking for a private hospital you can access the Bumrungrad hospital (international standing) by BTS rapidly.
A nice bar @494 in the Grand Hyatt Erawan after some fine dining at Gianni? Then why not some music at Wine Bridge Plus on Langsuan finishing by a dancing late night at MIXX of the Intercontinental hotel? This is just an example of how could be one party night in Chitlom area.
Looking for restaurants you can try the japanese Zuma in Rajdamri road, some great chinese food in Langsuan road. I let you discover many other restaurants there and in the nearby department stores.
If you are in the mood for some fresh air in a green area, you can go to Lumpini park and try the paddle boat, or practice some jogging. You could as well bring your badminton gang and have some fun in the badminton court next to the park (booking is more than advised).
Finally you could find all bowling, shopping and movies in the nearby department stores, with even an ice skate ring in Central World!
