From small single-room flats to sprawling freestanding homes, virtually any kind of property is available to rent in Bangkok…though the prices vary just as much. Most teachers at NIST choose to live along Sukhumvit Road, in close proximity to the school, making it easy to reach the campus while giving access to all of central Bangkok through the BTS Skytrain and MRT subway system. The most commonly rented condos and apartments tend to found between Nana and Phrom Phong BTS Stations, with a heavy concentration along Sukhumvit Soi 11 and 13. When choosing a place to live, it’s important to be aware of several key points:
The standard rental contract tends to be one or two years, following a 1+2 model: the renter pays for the first month, plus an additional two months as a deposit, which is returned at the end of the contract period. In isolated cases landlords may be reluctant to do so, making it important to rent from referred or trusted individuals if possible.
The actual charge for electricity tends to average THB 3 to 4 per unit. However, many landlords will charge double or even triple this amount, particularly in condo buildings. Ensure that you can pay directly to the electricity company or that the charge is reasonable before signing a contract. Water tends to be inexpensive even with heavy usage.
Always check if the location is furnished or unfurnished, as this will impact the price. Depending on how long you anticipate staying in Thailand, it may be preferable to purchase furniture and household items yourself. Also be sure to check the age and quality of air conditioners, as newer models can offer large savings over the long term.
