He said the Thonglor-Ekamai areas has always been one of the top locales, thanks to several supporting factors.
First, it is seated right in the heart of the city with easy access to and from various areas via multiple modes of transportation, from private cars to BTS Skytrain and public buses.
Moreover, the sub-sois criss-crossing the area often lead to the main roads, such as Sukhumvit Road, Rama IV Road, Phetchaburi Road, Si Rat Expressway, Chalong Rat Expressway, Sukhumvit Soi 53 and Sukhumvit Soi 71 (Pridi Banomyong).
When the Grey Line Stage 1 (Watcharaphol-Thonglor) commences service, it will enhance the area’s transport connectivity and further boost the value of the area.
In addition to travel convenience, Thonglor-Ekamai is also known as a neighbourhood that offers a quality urban lifestyle with the presence of community malls, spas, family-oriented fitness centres and gyms, co-working spaces, green areas for recreation, furniture stores, art galleries and home decor stores. The area also plays host to numerous premium international restaurants and trendy cafes. The sub-streets, lined with trees and greenery, impart a sense of ‘slow life’.
For families with children, Thonglor-Ekamai and its neighbouring areas offer a range of educational institutions that meet international standards, including the Wells International School, Ekamai International School, and New Bambino International Kindergarten among others. These schools serve students from nursery to the elementary and secondary levels.
Thonglor-Ekamai is also a short distance from several leading hospitals (Samitivej Sukhumvit, Camillian, Sukhumvit and Petcharavej), all staffed with specialists and other medical professionals available 24 hours a day. Pet hospitals can also be found in the area, including Thonglor Animal Hospital, Ekamai Animal Hospital and the Sukhumvit 49 Veterinary Hospital.
With its ideal location and the full range of premium facilities, Thonglor-Ekamai has attracted both Thai and a large number of foreign residents who enjoy living in the comfort of the city centre, surrounded by excellent facilities and amenities.
For them, this is “home” as it readily offers everything for quality living.
