Bang Na: Bangkok’s Most Up and Coming Suburb

BY

As central Bangkok continues to boom, more and more urbanites are making the move to the city’s burgeoning suburbs. From expansive parks and greenery to some of the finest shopping and education, Bang Na offers a central location with the luxury of space and convenience sought out by both families and investors alike.

Location, Location, Location
Nestled between downtown Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bang Na is one of the city’s most well-connected suburbs. Head into the city for work or any one of a number of art, food and cultural events by going down On Nut Road (Sukhumvit 77) or Bang Na Trad Road.

To explore the farther reaches of Bangkok, hop on Kanchanapisek Road, also known as Motorway 9 or Outer Ring Road, and bypass city traffic.

Easily connect to Motorway 7 for a weekend holiday in the eastern beach city of Pattaya or meet up with Rama II Highway for a nice trip to the famed Amphawa Floating Market.
If you are less accustomed to driving, Bang Na is well-equipped with public transportation, from city bus lines to the nearby BTS sky train stations of Bang Na, Udom Suk and On Nut. What is more, the first section of the new Yellow MRT Line (underground metro) will open in 2021 with plans to complete the line in 2023 bringing even more transportation options to Bang Na

Access to the Best Schools
Education is a key factor for many families when selecting a new community, and Bang Na’s vicinity to some of Bangkok’s most prestigious international schools ticks all the boxes. Renowned institutions such as Bangkok Patana International School, Concordian International School and Charter

International School, are all within short driving distance of your new home.

This affords parents the opportunity to select from a variety of curricula that best meets the needs of their children, with the support and confidence of modern facilities and qualified teachers. There are also a number of Thai schools in Bang Na, as well as a plethora of after-school and weekend enrichment programmes available at nearby malls and shopping centres.

A Suburban Shopping Oasis
Along with its abundance of educational offerings, Bang Na is fast becoming a suburban shopping oasis. Away from the bustle of downtown commercial areas, destinations such as Mega Bangna, Central Bangna and Paradise Park are no more than 12 kilometres away.

Add a personal touch to your home décor with a trip to IKEA’s flagship superstore or win best-dressed at the office in one of this season’s hottest trends. Shop your favourite designer brands at Central Department Store or expand your sartorial style with Thailand’s famed local labels, Jaspal, Greyhound or Pomelo.

Bang Na’s central location also puts you in driving distance to the newly opened Siam Premium Outlets Bangkok, with 60 of the shopping centres’ world-famous brands only available there.
Once you have shopped up an appetite, explore the many culinary offerings at the malls or head to one of Bang Na’s many convenient supermarkets – Tesco Lotus Extra Bang Na or Makro are just a stone’s throw away – to try your own hand in the kitchen.

Alive with Activity
Bang Na is a haven for residents looking to lead a more active lifestyle. Spend the day walking, running or exploring the 200 acres of Rama XI Park, Bangkok’s biggest park, known for its lake and botanical gardens. Or if you’re feeling more adventurous, visit Nong Bon Lake Park for a morning bike ride along 4km of pristine lakeside paths before testing your skills at windsurfing, kayaking or sailing through classes at the park’s water sports centre.
