The Ekkamai area stretches from Ekkamai road (Sukhumvit 63) to Phra Khanong road (Sukhumvit 71). It has become a fancy place to live in in the wake of Thonglor’s fast development and offers some of the most exciting options in town for supermarkets, restaurants and shops.
It remains however quieter than its famed neighbor and is therefore a great option for expat families, notably those looking for a large apartment (3 bedrooms or more) or a single house with garden and pool.
Last but not least, this neighborhood is the heart of some of the best and most demanded international schools in Bangkok, including the Lycee Francais, the Thai-Japanese school, the international Singapore International School and the Adventist school, and offers easy access to all the schools located along Ramintra and Ramkhamhaeng road.
