- The following does not apply to the high end condo market

It seems that a very large number of people are wanting to sell their empty, low end to mid end condos located in my area of because it is so hard to find tenants.

Lumpiniville Condos is conveniently situated in the heart of On Nut, Bangkok. There is a fantastic choice of quality apartments, studio, one and two bedrooms, at very affordable prices - either to buy or rent.

On site there is a large 7-11 convenience store open 24/7 along with Thai and Western style diners, a bar/coffee shop, Thai and oil massage plus laundries. Oh, and don't forget the 3 on site atms, very helpful and security will even get a taxi for you.

Being in the condo rental business we get a lot of enquiries from people asking to rent a condo for maybe a few days or a few weeks. We have to say 'No, we cannot help'.

We appreciate why they ask, it is because renting a condo for a month is a lot cheaper than staying in a hotel room of the same standard (normally) for a month.

Cheap Charlies, the famous bar that closed in Sukhumvit 11 earlier this year is to reopen in Sukhumvit 50, On Nut! It is going to be located at Beacon Place near the Link Condo complex.

The On Nut area seems to attract massage shops like mosquitoes to bare ankles.

There are over 30 massage shops and spas within a 10 minute walk of On Nut BTS station, and therefore a few minutes from any of the condominiums in On Nut. In fact there are 2 massage shops within the Lumpiniville Condo Complex in Sukhumvit 77.

Take your time and walk around - until you find one you fancy

Eating out in On Nut can be very cheap, but if you want traditional western food you will be dissapointed. Ok, there is KFC, McDonalds and Pizza Company but is that really traditional western food? 

So if you are after traditional western food you will need to go a bit further away. More of that in a later post.
