Airbnb in Bangkok

We’ve found you a 1 BR Luxury Condo at BTS / Airport Link Phaya Thai

AED 205 per night – so you pay AED 1025 for the 4 nights.

The condo is located just next to BTS and Airport Link Station Phaya Thai. It takes around 20 minutes get here from Suvarnabhumi International Airport with the Airport Link. 

Typical Bangkok street food area

From the Victory Monument which is a 5 min walk from the condo you can take a public van to go to the concert arena which costs around AED 10 return.


AED 250 for the cheapest tickets or AED 596 for one that’s closer to the stage.

So if you pick the cheapest options, you can do this trip for AED 2727.

Tuk-tuk is a common mode of public transport in Bangkok

Now a bit about Bangkok I was there last week to see the new development – Four Seasons Private Residences – which is being built right on the Chao Phraya River.

How the Four Seasons Private Residences will look in the city skyline

Looks incredible BTW – massive building surrounded by the river – panoramic views – expected to have a helipad on top as well if you get one of the Penthouses – but there are also 2 luxury hotels, The Four Seasons, and The Capella.

All the three properties will be able to use all the experiences being offered by them – so all your restaurants, lounge areas, even the three floor amenities deck – above the 60th floor – so you can work out while looking at the beautiful views of Bangkok.

This will only be ready in October next year though – but it surely looks like a great spot.
