Thailand remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world to this day. People from all over the world continue to visit for its amazing food, lifestyle, and culture. More and more people, however, are coming to the land of smiles for real estate. The Bangkok skyline is filled with highrise condominiums and skyscrapers that are home to luxury apartments, villas, and penthouses.

Foreigners are allowed to buy condominums in Thailand and this gives many people the opportunity to live there year round. But no matter the country, buying real estate is a big decision that requires some forththought and planning. Keeping a few things in mind like the location, size, and style of your dream home as well as your budget will put your mind at ease when buying a luxury apartment in Bangkok.


As with any real estate investment, location is crucial to your decision. Choosing what area of Bangkok you would like to buy a luxury condo in will effect where you eat, where you shop, or even where your children will go to school. Each neighbourhood in the capital is unique and have different things to offer.

Some things you may want to consider when thinking of may include:

  • Schools
  • Shopping Malls
  • Markets
  • Transportation (BTS, MRT Stations)
  • Nightlife

Many condos, like The River Condo (called เดอะ ริเวอร์ คอนโด in Thai), have spectacular views of the downtown skyline as well as the majestic Chao Phraya River. Others buildings may put you closer to a BTS station. Take some time and think about what you would like nearby your apartment before you make your decision.


Once you have found the right neighbourhood, it’s time to find the right house. Luckily, Bangkok luxury highrises come with many different sized units suitable for every type of person or family. Standard one and two bedroom condos are readily available. For someone who needs a bit more, luxury villas and penthouses are available and some are still being built. If you decide to buy at a site that is still under construction be sure to ask of you can make any modifications to the floor plan while they are building your unit.

Bangkok can be a wonderful city to buy a luxury condominium. With the amount of luxury buildings already there coupled with the ones still being built, there’s no shortage of options. Each building not only has its own facilities like pools, saunas, and fitness centers but they also have their own style and atmosphere. Take some time to walk around and see what the buildings have to offer and you may find yourself living the highrise luxury lifestyle in one of Southeast Asia’s finest cities.
