Cast your eye across Bangkok and you will be able to witness the substantial upgrade that is currently happening to the capital’s mass transit network. The BTS Skytrain above ground and the MRT beneath are being extended making travel across the city easier in the comfort of this reliable and efficient public transportation network. Nowhere is this more apparent than at Bang Sue where the throngs of construction are creating Bangkok’s main rail station, the Bang Sue Central Station, to replace Hua Lamphong located on the Chinatown borders.
Due to open at the end of 2019, this impressive station will become the Bang Sue-Rangsit terminus, as well as facilitating the Thai-Chinese highspeed rail that will boast connectivity even further linking Bangkok to Chiang Mai as well as Don Mueang and Suvarnabhumi airports. This is a really turning point for the area and has caught the attention of businesses wanting to reap the rewards of this development. >>The Next Bangkok Property Hotspot’s Bang Sue Grand Central Station
These infrastructure improvements are naturally having a knock on effect to the area. Those living in Bang Sue choose to do so since it offers a Thai way of life but without all the hustle and bustle of more popular locations in the centre of the city. This quieter enclave has canals framed by gardens and place to just sit and stop to watch the world go by. It is even a short journey to the larger green expanses of Chatuchak Park and Rot Fai Park, not to mention access to JJ Market-heaven for shop-alcoholics! Plus, accommodation costs are friendlier on the pocket too.
Bang Sue is considered to the at the centre of the education, the economy and transport. Many of the government offices are close by including the new parliament building. Since many downtown areas are squeezed for land, moving facilities like this to the outskirts of the city is the norm. There is no doubt that Bang Sue will retain its charm that draws people to the area, but with the bonus of more amenities popping up such as Gateway at Bangsue. This retail space will enhance the lives of those living in the area, filled with everyday conveniences meaning there will be no need to travel into the city to fulfill your shopping needs. >>The Latest DDproperty Property Index
It is therefore not surprising that there is a buzz in the air about this locale of Bangkok. As the emphasis on improvements is focused heavily on the mass transit network which is the future of the capital’s transport mode rather than a car, Bang Sue is expected to retain it calm and laidback persona. Those choosing to live here can still feast on local street food in quieter surroundings but also venture into the shiny new shopping amenities too.
