6. North Bangkok Houses for Rent

North Bangkok is particularly attractive to American expatriates due to the location of the International School of Bangkok (I.S.B.).  The school is located within Nichada Thani, a secure housing estate comprising single houses, townhomes, and condominiums for rent. The property development includes a clubhouse with a wide range of sporting facilities.  Single homes at Nichada Thani are some of the most expensive houses to rent in Bangkok. However, several apartment buildings and townhouse developments are available for rent just outside the compound.

Additionally, shopping and entertainment facilities in the north of Bangkok are more limited than in the central areas and commuting to downtown Bangkok can be time consuming. (Rent a Bangkok Apartment - Detailed Location Information)
