Phloen Chit and Ruam Rudee is the place to be seen! Luxurious low rise and new trendy high rise condos, convenient access and all facilities.
Phloenchit is one of the most popular places for condos and this because of its unique location: easy access express way, BTS, parks, between the Sukhumvit business area and the shopping area of Siam. What can you expect more? Maybe a large choice of private and luxury condominiums? There they are!
There is a mix of people living this area, some tourists of course because of the nearby hotels but of course mainly residents. A lot of office workers mostly at manager levels or wealthy, and of course expatriates also love the area and the unique atmosphere.
In the day time office workers populate buildings like CRC Tower, All Seasons Place, Mahatun Plaza, Wave Place not forgetting the buildings on Witthayu road hiding the american embassy. But the area is always quiet and enjoyable with easy access to everything you may be looking for, of course at a price but this is still possible to find great bargains!
Phloenchit and Witthayu roads can be quite messy during peak times but other sois (Ruam Rudee, Nai Loet) are always easy to get through. There is an access to the express way on Sukhumvit Road (going north) and on Petchaburi road (coming from Witthayu road) if you do want to go South. This is also possible to go to Rama 4 express way entrance either by the main road (Witthayu) or going through the sois.
The nearest BTS station is Phloenchit, on Sukhumvit road. You can also easily walk to the Nana or Chitlom stations. If you want to take the MRT you can either commute using the BTS or walk down Witthayu road to reach the MRT Lumpini station.
If you live in soi Ruam Rudee, you can go to All Seasons Place, there is a small shopping center there with some shops, restaurants and a supermarket. If you are on the other side you can check for Wave Place. There is also a Villa Market in Phloenchit center before Sukhumvit soi 2.
If you are looking for more serious shopping then you can either walk to Central Chitlom, or take the BTS and reach one of the popular bangkok mall around Siam.
You will most likely choose the Bumrungrad hospital as you can walk to it or find a taxi to bring you in there. If you are looking for other choices you may go to the Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital on Rajdamri road or take the BTS to some other hospital (Phayathai 2 would be a great choice for instance).
There are some nice bars on Ruam Rudee and Sukhumvit road. The Ad Makers on Ruam Rudee (in Athenee Residence) is certainly a place you will want to visit at night to listen to some cool thai music and classic rock! There are a few other places like that one around the area.
Restaurants are also easy to find, with a lot of great international and local food. In Ruam Rudee you may want to try Coffee Bean (thai) or Lyon (french) opposite? What about T House (vietnamese) or Neil's Tavern (steak)? Just choose what suits you!
Looking for some walk in a park? Just walk south on Ruam Rudee or Witthayu to join the famous Lumpini Park! There is a badminton court on the corner, tennis courts, paddle boats on the lake, path where people enjoy jogging in early morning or evening after work as well as aerobics. If you wake up early you might even spot local chinese practicing tai chi.
Department stores are also a few steps away, you would have to take the BTS to Siam or you can even walk to Central Chitlom. Restaurants, shops, theaters, bowling... Central World, Siam Paragon, Siam Center, MBK and many more awaits you!
