Soi Ruamrudee – Up-Scale Living In One of Bangkok’s Most Prestigious Neighbourhoods
Situated right under the Ploenchit BTS, Soi Ruamrudee in the Central Bangkok District (CBD) has the distinction of being graced by many embassies. A walk down this area takes you past the embassies of the United States, Czech, Netherlands and the United Kingdom, to name a few. Popular with the expat community, a home here enables a unique combination of business and leisure – residents can hobnob with blue collar professionals, international businessmen and diplomats from various countries. Let’s take a look at what makes this soi one of Bangkok’s most desired destinations.
Soi Ruamrudee is very conveniently located in Ploenchit, sandwiched between the high-end leisure shopping destinations of Siam and Chidlom on one side, and the vibrant Nana and Asoke areas on the other. Residents have easy access to all these hotspots and get the best of all worlds. Working professionals benefit from the short commute times to destinations along the BTS Sukhumvit line, and the Sathorn area is also a pleasant commute way via the BTS from Siam station.
Ploenchit itself is a dynamic business center with many office towers, 5-star hotels and classy dining establishments. Aside of the famous Bumrungrad International Hospital, Soi Ruamrudee is very close to the trendy Central Embassy shopping mall, which offers 6-storeys of shopping, restaurants, cafes and special ‘Embassy Diplomat Screens’ for a memorable cinema experience.
Prestigious Lifestyle at Soi Ruamrudee
Unlike the bustling Wireless road that runs parallel to Soi Ruamrudee, this soi offers residents a more relaxed and quiet atmosphere. Beginning with the Novotel hotel at the start of the soi and the luxurious Conrad hotel further down, this street features an eclectic collection of establishments, such as – the Witch’s oyster bar and restaurant and the newly opened sportsbar, the Lyon (French) restaurant, the Meeples & More Board Game café and even a massage parlor (the Myth) that offers fortune telling services. And let’s not forget the street food; the street shops in front of the 7/11 sell some of the city’s best noodle soups.
Investment Potential-High Capital Gain
Given the appeal of this soi and the ritzy lifestyle that’s possible here, real estate prices along this street can reach record breaking levels. Land prices have just gone as high as 2.2 million baht/square wah (sq w).
While the high price might seem daunting, buyers can rest assured that they are making an excellent investment. Rental yield here can be a bit lower, but investing in Soi Ruamrudee is a sure thing – this is one of the best areas in Bangkok where your investment is virtually guaranteed to get a high capital gain.
And there are plenty of places to invest in beginning with the glamorous Athenee Residences. If the fancy condos here aren’t in your budget then there are quite a few other buildings you can invest in. For instance, the Noble 09 project and the Socio project are more affordable options.
