Our apartment in Bangkok on the 29th floor in the city center

For several days now we have been living under the very sky of Bangkok, above probably only stars and Skype sky :) And we arrived here from the glorious Koh Samui for the simple reason - we want to try classes withEgor in a special center for children North Light. A little later, when we work out, and we have some opinion on this, I will definitely write about it, whether it is worth it or not.

Our apartment in The Complete Rajaprarop

First we lived a couple of days in the hotel. S3 Residence Parkwhile looking for an apartment, then moved. We chose the area near Victory Monument, although it is not the best for a long stay, but it suits us best. There is Santiphap park for walking, near two metro stations, beautifultransport accessibility to the Northlightcenter and the hospital (we also want to go there a couple of times), not far from shopping centers and supermarkets. Only one minus - the price of housing, because it is the very center of Bangkok. There was another drawback - gas contamination, but on the 29th floor it is not felt at all, the exhaust gases do not reach us. (If you want to find a hotel in Bangkok in advance, it’s convenient to choose accommodation at RoomGuru, this is a service where you can compare hotel prices in different booking systems. I have stayed in Bangkok many times and in different hotels. just for a few. Nasa vegas - convenient for stopping near the airport and metro, Rajata - a good place to spend the night near Khaosan, S3 residense located in the center near the park.)

So, after a day of searching, we found suitable apartments. It turned out that despite the approaching new Year In Bangkok, there is no peak season likeislands and that's great. I think that if you search for a longer period and in a slightly different area, you can find it cheaper, but it was important for us to live in the city center now.

We really like our current housing becauselife here is arranged to the maximum. This is the best offer that we found during the day of searching, and, oddly enough, the cheapest. There were even more expensive, and where you can not cook, and where there is no such amount of equipment, and there are not so many services in the condominium. Since we were initially looking for a two-bedroom apartment, the choice was rather limited. In the usual small Thai apartments, we did not even go, there, as a rule, only studios. There was a thought to rent two cheap studios, but the price was not much lower, which is not very convenient, and I wanted to have a swimming pool and fitness next door. About, how to look for an apartment in bangkok, read the link, there is my search experience. And I also did overview of apartments in our area.

For a while I wondered if it was worth living inthis area in terms of cafes and shops, but it turned out that in the next street a lot of inexpensive cafes are also sold in the papaya / apples / greens / tomatoes shop, a lot of macaroni with fresh squeezed tangerine and pomegranate juice, sliced ​​fruits and other food. And also we have here in 10 minutes on foot Tops Market. Well, on Taxi in 5 minutes and 50 baht you can drive to the huge two-storey Big C Super Сenter with a food court, shops and a large playground. There, in fact, near and other shopping centers are located.

Uncommonly

And now I will describe what is unusual after life inapartment in Moscow. First of all, it is unusual to live so high. You come to the window or to the balcony and take your breath away. It seems he was never afraid of heights, but dumb for some reason. And when you go in the elevator, your ears are laying a little, strange. Secondly, it is unusual that everywhere you need to use a card: go to the lobby - put the card, press the button in the elevator - you need to attach the card again, go to the apartment - again the card, the enemy won't pass. It's great that one card is for everything, not a bunch of keys. Thirdly, it is very unusual that there is everything you need for life: a swimming pool, fitness, drinking water, a shop, you don’t need to go anywhere specifically. A few days I catch myself thinking that I would have lived further, you get used to the infrastructure :)

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
