Bangkok, where's a GREAT place to live with school kids...?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm considering (just considering) moving to Bangkok starting January with my 2 half Thai children aged 8 & 11.

We've been living in Phuket for circa 15 years.

 

Just wondered if any BMs can suggest areas that they think are really great to live and also commutable for easy school runs via School Bus or Skytrain ?

I don't mind if its a nice condo connected to the Skytrain (with pool/gym etc) or nice housing development with families but also OK for school buses.

 

I like Thorng Lo but maybe a bit too busy for kids ...but as the plan would be return to the family home during school holidays, the kids will get enough beach time/fresh air etc !

 

Price range I would say Mid to high end (for schools and accommodation)

 

Cheers,

SB .

Find schools to place them in first and then locate based upon that I think would make more sense.

I know it may sound strange but NANA is good.  Many families there and some decent schools nearby.  Plus if Papa needs and attitude adjustment, it is not far to go.

Don MuanG Airport ...

Oh i see, that's an advantage me thinks.

Hyde Park is an upscale villapark with international school connected to it, perfect for kids if you can afford it.

And they have all kinds of houses, in all priceranges.

 

Myself i would never live in a condo downtown, especially not with kids. You best find the school first and then the house as close as possible to it.

Choose the school first....  then find somewhere decent to live near it.

 

It's really difficult to offer advice unless the location is narrowed down. 

 

For example - Inner City (Asoke) - Millennium Residence (Condo) is ideal for kids... Pretty close to NIST and Bangkok Prep, it has a good pool, tennis courts, a good gym, little kids play area downstairs, large grounds (but not grassed).

Yeh I guess it could be (ie close to DMG), I was just more thinking of airplane noise, but watched the video, look pretty nice...
