Direct River Views - 7 Swimming Pools - Private River Boat. Iconic residence directly opposite Shangri La Hotel and Mandarin Oriental. Only 10% left available - serious investors must hurry!

Throughout history, rivers have been at the centre of many of the worlds capital cities The Thames in London, The Seine in Paris and the Tiber in Rome to name but a few. More than a millennium later, prime waterfront apartments are still the most desirable addresses in all these cities.

In Bangkok, it is the River Chao Phraya that is the main waterway which winds through the capitals centre. Today, the magnificent views over the mighty river are enjoyed by many of Bangkoks most exclusive hotels, including the Peninsula, Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental, Sheraton and Millennium Hilton. Now, with The River, buyers at this prestigious development are able to enjoy the same five-star views and five-star luxury in their own private residence 365 days per year.

The River consists of two towers which occupy an ideally-located 120m stretch of pure river-frontage. With a total of 70 floors, The Rivers South Tower is one of the tallest buildings in Bangkok, which has already led to the high-rise development becoming an iconic landmark on the capitals cityscape.

The project has its own private mooring together with a private river taxi service shuttling owners across the river to the Saphan Taksin Skytrain station just 300m, giving easy access to the citys main districts for business, shopping and nightlife.

As for facilities, those at The River match their neighbouring five-star hotels in terms of the level of amenities that owners are able to enjoy. Built on a sizable plot, owners of condos at The River can enjoy the gardens that reach down to the waterfront and the large 50m swimming pool contained in the grounds. Those preferring a skyline view while they are swimming can take advantage of the roof top infinity pool which are part of the towers Sky Garden forty floors up. The development also contains a fully equipped fitness centre with 30m of beautiful river views and a concierge service that can handle any requirements that the owners might have.

Such is the quality of this development that it will probably come as no surprise to learn that The River won Best Condo Development (Thailand) at the Thailand Property Awards 2012.

The River was fully completed in August 2012 and, although mostly sold out, there are still a few units remaining here and so it is the ideal development for someone looking for a luxurious apartment that is ready to move into immediately. Rental yields for smaller apartments here can reach 7% per annum and so The River is an ideal choice for investors as well as those looking for one of Bangkoks most coveted addresses.

About Bangkok Thai Real Estate Co. Ltd, Pattaya

The Number One Choice for Investors

Thailand*s capital city, Bangkok, currently offers an excellent investment opportunity for anyone looking for fast capital appreciation and reliable rental returns.

Compared to other key Asian cities such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing or Kuala Lumpur, prices in Bangkok are currently very low 每 with an average price of just $5,000/m2. This compares favourably to Beijing at $9,500/m2, Singapore at $24,500 and Hong Kong at $31,000/m2. However, such is the strength of the market in Bangkok that prices are guaranteed to not stay this low for much longer. In year to the end of March 2013, prices of condominiums in Bangkok rose by a remarkable 9.39%, making Bangkok one of the fastest-increasing markets in South East Asia.

Due to the country*s fast economic growth, forecasters predict that the property boom in Bangkok is still at the beginning as the economy continues to increase at levels faster than neighbouring countries, with the country*s GDP increasing by 6.44% in 2012. This means that the economy in Thailand is developing at a faster rate than any other country in Asia apart from China and the Philippines. Described by the World Bank as ※one of the greatest development success stories§ for its progress in social and economic development, the country remains on an upward trajectory.

The constantly improving economy has led to the rapid increase of the middle class in Thailand, who are spending their new-found wealth in upgrading their accommodation. This, in turn, has led to the fast increases in prices for condominiums, especially those located in prime positions within the city centre, where few good building plots remain.

The expansion of Bangkok*s Skytrain network is fueling the city*s real estate boom.
The expansion of Bangkok*s Skytrain network is fueling the city*s real estate boom.
The upwards trajectory of Bangkok*s property prices are set to increase still further when the ASEAN Economic Community which offers tariff-free trade and visa-free travel between all member countries comes into effect at the end of 2015. Due to Thailand*s position right in the centre of the ASEAN region 每 at its very crossroads 每 Thailand is expected to benefit more from the introduction of the new trading zone than most of the other member nations.

Much of the activity in the real estate market is centred around developments located within easy reach of stations on Bangkok*s mass transit system, which now makes it easy to navigate the often heavily-congested streets of Thailand*s capital city. The network, which comprises the underground, Skytrain, bus and rail networks, is seeing massive expansion over the next few years with the number of lines increasing from eight to 15. As new stations are announced, so new areas of the city become attractive areas to live.

According to research published by Global Property Guide in April 2013, rental yields in Bangkok range from 3.97% to 7.41%. This makes Bangkok the third best-performing capital city in East Asia after Manila and Jakarta 每 another sign that there is still plenty of capital appreciation left in the market for condominiums.

Smaller apartments earn much higher rental yields than bigger apartments. A 50m2 apartment in Bangkok*s central location earns good rental yields at 7.41%, while a 375m2 apartment also centrally located, earns poor rental yields at 3.97%.

The rental yields from medium-sized apartments are also good. An 80m2 apartment earns moderate to good rental yields at 6.86%, higher than 2011∩s figure of 6.60%. The same can be said about 120m2 apartments, where rental yields have increased to 6.53% from 6.49% the previous year.

Currently foreign buyers make up a relatively small proportion of the total market for condominiums in Bangkok, but this situation is changing fast as well-informed investors realize that there is little growth left in most of the key Asian cities and begin to look further afield to see good returns on their investments.

A Perfect Location for a Second Home

Bangkok attracts not only investors 每 it also attracts foreigners looking for a second home in a vibrant and affordable city, in a country which is well-known for the warm welcome by the country*s friendly and hospitable people. That*s the reason why Thailand is known around the world as &The Land of Smiles*!

Bangkok's shopping malls, climate, cuisine and nightlife make it a Mecca for tourists.
Bangkok*s shopping malls, climate, cuisine and nightlife make it a Mecca for tourists.
The city is now a highly cosmopolitan one which welcomes visitors from all over the globe. Visitors are attracted not only by the legendary Thai hospitality, but also its world-famous cuisine, year-round warm and pleasant tropical climate, thrilling nightlife opportunities, low-cost shopping in the city*s many large, modern shopping malls and beautiful temples and other tourist attractions. English is widely spoken in the city and Bangkok also has a sizable Thai-Chinese population.

With its modern Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Bangkok has become one of Asia*s main transport hubs. In fact, a recent survey conducted by MasterCard found Bangkok International to have recently overtaken London*s Heathrow as the world*s busiest international airport. Tourist numbers to the city are increasing rapidly 每 visitor numbers were up 18.6% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2013. Much of this increase came from China, where over 2 million tourists arrived in the first half of 2013 alone, an increase of 95.06% over the same period in 2012. Chinese visitors are now by far the most numerous visitors to Thailand, accounting for 21% of all international arrivals.

There are also increasing visitor numbers to the city from the Gulf area. The Abu Dhabi to Bangkok route is Etihad*s busiest, having transported 700,000 passengers to the city in 2012. The airline is now adding a sixth flight per day to the city in order to cope with the constantly increasing demand. The new high-speed rail link to the airport makes it possible to reach the centre of Bangkok from Suvarnabhumi in under thirty minutes.

###

So, whether you are looking for an affordable second home in an exciting and pleasant city to live or an investment which provides a good steady rental income combined with some of the fastest capital growth that you can find anywhere in the world currently, Bangkok is an ideal choice.
