A condo in Sathorn is a guarantee for your life quality in a pleasant and diversified environment.
A business district that has somehow reconverted into a more residential area with many condos and hotels, Sathorn is also linked to the remaining of the city by BTS, MRT and BRT lines. Many sois leaving from it provide places for condos and a potential new home for you. This area was before one of the most luxurious but as time passed you will find now condos for everyone with top luxurious projects and others accessible to everyone's budget.
Offices, hotels, condos and important landmarks with a few embassies around shows a mixed culture for this area that can quickly be identified by the fact that condos in Sathorn show many different faces.
There is also a lot of young population due to the schools and universities campus around like the Saint Andrews International School on Sathorn soi 4 or the Assumption Commercial College on soi 13.
Sathorn road links the center of Bangkok to the suburbs through Saphan Taksin bridge and is therefore often congested during peak hours. However this is a large road that can be used most of the time and can bring you to the main areas of Bangkok and access to express ways (on Sathorn not far from the bridge, and on Rama 4 road). It also links Silom very quickly and Rama 3 through Narathiwas road.
The BTS enters Sathorn from Silom by Narathiwas road (Chong Nonsi station), one stop at Surasak and Saphan Taksin before crossing the bridge to join Krung Thonburi.
If you are located early Sathorn (near Lumpini Park), you could decide either to walk to the Saladaeng BTS station on Silom, or choose the MRT Lumphini station that link you to the Hua Lamphong train station through Silom, or Bangsue through Sukhumvit, Ratchadaphisek, Ladprao and Jatujak.
Finally, if you want to join Rama 3, the BRT (connected to the BTS Chong Nonsi station) will bring you there through Narathiwas road and many stops along the way to the very end of Rama 3 (and even further).
Looking for some groceries? The Villa Market in between Silom and Sathorn (Silom soi 5 and soi Pipat) will certainly help you. You can also choose to reach Silom road and go to Patpong to the Foodland. However if you are near the river then you should check out the Robinson department store on Charoen Krung road.
Many new supermarkets are opening or plan to open in coming months / years, and you will also find many places along the roads often hidden in some other building sharing space between condos, offices and shopping areas.
There are three major hospitals on Sathorn road that are the BNH, early Sathorn, the Saint Louis Hospital near Surasak station and finally Lerdsin Hospital next to the State Tower and Silom road.
All of them provide very good services, Lerdsin being worldwide recognized for orthopedic issues, the BNH for international customers and Saint Louis Hospital for its modern equipment as well being able to help for any kind of affections.
From Sathorn you can join Lumpini Park on one end, or the river with its many shopping villages on the other end, both providing many places for going out alone or with friends.
Sathorn hosts also a lot of very popular restaurants, including the most popular thai restaurant Blue Elephant that is also found in many cities around the world! All kind of cuisines are to be discovered on Sathorn and you will definitely enjoy walking in the sois to find new places like Tenyuu japanese restaurant or Secret Garden and the Vertigo with its view on Bangkok from the top of the tower.
Bars also everywhere with the Moon Bar in the Banyan Tree, Beer Garden (at the City Viva shopping mall), Blue Bar... There are also a lot of places gay friendly where everyone is welcomed and great atmospheres.
