Browse our list of Chom Thong properties. This list includes houses, condos, apartments and commercial options found in Chom Thong, Bangkok.
Behind Thon Buri, the old capital of Siam, you will find Chom Thong. Chom Thong was an area known for its fruit gardens, especially mandarines cultivated by Chinese immigrants. Those days are now long gone, but Chom Thong still offers what you might call quieted down side of Bangkok. Chom Thong is finally accessible by the Skytrain and has a station at Wutthakat Station and so has decent transportation links to the rest of Bangkok.
This southwest part of Bangkok may not be as swanky as other areas of the city but it definitely is worth considering in terms of accommodation. Property here is very reasonable and the Skytrain makes access really easy.
The district has many places of interest to visit including Wat Rajorasaram, Wat Sai, and Wat Nangnong Worawihan. And Chom Thong was also famous for the nearby Wat Sai floating market, but the original market disappeared in 1977. Canals crosses through the laidback neighbourhoods.
Wat Rajorasaram is particularly interesting as it is a blend of Thai Buddhist architecture and Chinese style. Floating markets are plentiful. Yet not as big part of daily living like just a few decades back, Chom Thong is still full of remnants from days past.
For retail lovers then there is the Central Plaza Mall Rama 2, although today this mall is looking a bit dated it does have some great retail outlets, especially clothing. There are enough food outlets to make your dinner choice a problem, but are great value for money.
If you want something a little bit different then try Indy Market, this night market is known locally as a great place for food. Small vendors and street food is the order of the day here, terrific Thai food cooked freshly and at a real low price. Don’t expect many tourists here it is a real locals place.
