Renting an apartment in Bangkok is easy with plenty of vacancies at bargain prices. Studios start at $100 a month and 1-bedroom apartments at $300. The Sukhumvit Road area between Soi 1 and Soi 63 (Ekamai) has an informal expatriate community and many nearby markets, restaurants, department stores, and hospitals employ English-speaking staff. You can also find short term stay suites often in conjunction with hotels such as the Rembrandt Suites.
Bangkok Apartment Rental Travel Guide
The Bangkok Post has some listings, but most landlords don’t advertise. So if you see an apartment or condo that you like the look of, you need to go to the desk and ask if they have vacancies. To rent an apartment you need to have to present your passport and pay the first and last months’ rent and possibly a security deposit. The rental contract is usually month to month. All apartment buildings have twenty four hour security and are furnished. Most apartments include a daily maid service.
