Situated along Sukhumvit road between Ekkamai and On Nut, Phra Khanong is a charming area that offers the perfect mix of modern city living and traditional Thai culture. Here, bustling city streets are wall to wall with shops and restaurants catering to residents around the clock, whilst the smaller sois still offer scenic settings that retain much of district’s traditional atmosphere.
Located just on the outskirts of the central business districts of Sukhumvit, the cost of living around Phra Khanong is generally a little cheaper than more exclusive downtown spots. Nevertheless, Phra Khanong is still well connected to the city via the Phra Khanong BTS Station, the Chalong Rat Express Way (Ram Inthra – At Narong) and the Phra Khanong canal.
With better value for money than more centrally located properties, and easy access to the city, Phra Khanong is the area of choice for many westerns and Thai’s alike.
The district offers all types of properties from affordable apartment blocks and town houses, to luxury condos and stylish city homes. Properties here are typically geared to residents staying long term, with the best deals available to those renting for 1 year or more. Sale prices here can range across the board, from cheap studio apartments to large spacious condominiums.
Phra Khanong is great place for those wanting to stay in the city, without paying the high premiums often asked by properties in the CBD. The area has everything you may need for day-to-day living; it also has some interesting restaurants and bars when you can spend an evening without visiting the main nightlife hotspots.
Phra Khanong is home to the beautiful Wat Thammamongkhon, Phra Khnong Market and the old waterways of Klong Phra Khanong. There are also a number of institutions such as The Anglo Singapore International School, The Wells International School, and fantastic leisure centers such as the Bangkok Sports Club.
The most populated road in the area, aside from Sukhumvit itself is Pridi Banomyong (Sukhumvit Soi 71) – often abbreviated to P.B. This huge street is packed full of great restaurants, food stalls, shops, markets and super markets, and a wide array of properties for sale and rent.
