Why Newcomers to Bangkok Will Love Staying in a Serviced Apartment in Sathorn

Posted by Hailey on January 12th, 2021

Moving to a new city can mentally and physically taxing. Chief among the list of things to do in preparation for your move is to find suitable accommodation in your new city. Many who have experienced moving to Bangkok, Thailand would agree that it is challenging to decide in which area of Bangkok you will live, especially if you have never been there before. The most ideal option is to book a serviced apartment in Sathorn for the short-term while you figure out your next move..

Serviced apartments are a low-risk, high-reward accommodation option in the short-term for many reasons. Because they are designed for business travelers and extended stay guests, serviced apartments can be rented for weeks at a time and come fully furnished. This is great for new movers because a serviced apartment's flexibility relieves some of the pressure on finding a permanent apartment.  

Sathorn is a vibrant and dynamic district of Bangkok and serves as one of its central business districts. With a handful of restaurants and cafes on every corner, Sathorn is an excellent option to stay in while you explore it and other areas of Bangkok.


Business Hub 

Over the last dozen years, Sathorn has grown to become the financial center of Bangkok; if you work in finance, your new office will likely be in the area. In Sathorn, many serviced apartments have opened to accommodate the area's growth and ability to host international business travelers and long-stay guests. Many who fall into those categories work in the finance industry. 

Should your work be elsewhere, you will be able to reach your new office by the BTS Skytrain or the MRT subway. Conveniently, there are a handful of BTS and MRT stations in the Sathorn area that can take you to the other business districts in the city.  The MRT can take you to the Ratchada area in the northern part of Bangkok, while the BTS will take you to the Sukhumvit area after changing trains in Siam. Regardless of where you need to go, you'll be minutes away from a train station at your serviced apartment in Sathorn.

Western Comforts 

The Sathorn area is much more open and less congested than other areas of Bangkok, making it an ideal place for westerners to settle with families. As a result, these expats have opened cafes, restaurants, and bars catering to a western crowd that serve up some of the city's best bites and drinks. There will be multiple cafes and restaurants near your serviced apartment in Sathorn.

When you move to a new city, especially one so culturally diverse as Bangkok, it can be helpful to indulge in food and familiarity from your home country through restaurants. Many expats will even hold meetups or events at local western establishments to help newcomers become comfortable in the city.

Your serviced apartment in Sathorn will provide you with convenience while also being fully furnished. These accommodations give new Bangkokians tons of flexibility and comfort, which are critical to surviving the initial weeks after a move. Who knows, you may end up liking Sathorn and move nearby.
