Mission Accomplished!

After three solid days of looking at all types of apartments, houses and condos all over Bangkok- I think we've finally found our new home! As soon as we stepped into the front door and saw the panoramic view of the city- we were smitten. Here are some photos that we took as we toured the condo:

Front Entrance:

Living room from front door:



Walk-in closet:

and the most important room- the bathroom. Look at that view!!
Swimming pool:
The condo is located right downtown and there is easy access to the Expressway and to the subway. It is also located near Lumpini Park, Suan Lum Night Bazaar, and a Thai boxing arena.
We are in the process of negotiating our lease right now. In Bangkok- everything is negotiable, so it is very common to ask for upgrades and improvements or to haggle over price when you rent an apartment or condo. We asked for an oven and a dryer- many Thai apartments don't come with these two items. So, hopefully things go well and we can sign a lease soon!

I have a ton of photos to go through and I will be updating the blog with all of the wonderful sights we have seen during our house hunting trip- so stay tuned!!
