Types and Locations of Retail Spaces for Rent in Bangkok

Retailers need expert advice on how to locate new outlets and retail spaces available for rent in Bangkok. CBRE Thailand can advise clients on where to place their retail stores to get the best access to their target customers.

We help retailers find retail spaces in malls and shopping centers, stand-alone shophouses with street frontage, and other types of retail outlets such as superstores and neighborhood centers.

We can present retailers with suitable retail space for rent in the best locations in Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui, Pattaya, and other major provincial cities in Thailand.

Types of Retail Projects and Shops

There is a wide range of modern retail spaces for rent in Bangkok and, to a lesser extent, in the provincial cities. Bangkok has some of Asia’s best known shopping centres, including Central World, Emporium, and Siam Paragon.

  1. Shophouses

    These traditional retail buildings are usually two to four stories high and are street-fronting retail units.

  2. Shopping Centers

    Modern shopping centers or malls are normally anchored by a department store. The two major shopping center developers and department store operators are Central Group and The Mall Group, which operate some of the best-known shopping centers in Bangkok, including Central World, Siam Paragon, Emporium, and MBK.

  3. Superstores

    There are three major superstore operators in Thailand: Tesco Lotus, Big C, and Makro. Their superstores often have retail premises available for rent to tenants.

  4. Specialist Stores

    These are either stand-alone stores or major tenants in shopping centers. HomePro is Thailand’s largest home improvement retailer, with shopping premises available for rent in its stand-alone stores.

  5. Neighborhood Centers and Community Malls

    Neighborhood retail centers have a growing number of rental spaces, usually with one of the major supermarkets as the anchor tenant.

  6. Mixed-Use Developments

    These are a combination of two or three developments, such as residential, hotel, office, or retail spaces within a single project.

Locations of Retail Spaces for Rent in Bangkok

The total retail supply in Bangkok is categorized into three main areas: downtown, midtown, and suburbs. Each area has different types of retail spaces for rent, rental rates and target consumers.

View our current listings of retail spaces for rent in Bangkok and other areas.

  1. The downtown area offers prime locations for business and retail spaces for rent, including Silom, Sathon, Rama 1, Pathumwan, Rajdamri and Early Sukhumvit (up to Soi 24), which are generally accessible by the BTS.

  2. Midtown is bounded by Ratchadaphisek Road or Inner Ring road, including major residential areas and secondary business centers. The target shoppers are middle- to high-income earners in the area, which covers Lad Phrao, late Sukhumvit (from soi 24 to 63), Ramkhamhaeng, Bang Kapi, Chatuchak, Phaholyothin, Ratchadapisek, Rama 9 Road, Victory Monument, Pinklao, Riverside, Rama 3 road, Wong Wien Yai, and Wangburapa.

  3. The suburbs are the outlying areas of Bangkok with easy access to the city center.  They form the gateways to the five neighboring provinces and upcountry areas. The locations of retail spaces for rent include Lak Si, Don Muang, Rangsit, Ramindra, Sukhapibal 1-3, Srinakarin, Bangna-Trad, Samrong, Theparak, Rama 2 road, Bang Khae, Bang Bua Thong, Bang Yai, Rattanathibet and Chaengwattana.
