Attention all self-proclaimed foodies! Bangkok is well known for its shopping and temples, but also its food scene – impressive in both scale and variety. If you are traveling to Thailand’s capital in search of food tourism and are wondering where to stay, check out these Airbnb accommodations, situated in some of the most foodie-centric areas around Bangkok city.

It’s important to note that the apartment spaces get smaller and more expensive the nearer to the city centre of Siam, Chit Lom and Ratchachewi Station, but you can still get a nice place along Sukumvit road with excess to the BTS for convenient travelling too.

—Thong Lor Area—

Bangkok - Thong Lor

Around the neighborhood – Thong Lor is one of my favorite personal areas in Bangkok for its vibrant night life and stretches of trendy bars, restaurants, and cafes all promising a night of good food and good fun. The area feels upscale without being pretentious and fun without being over the top. Thong Lor has an upbeat and friendly vibe – quiet by day and really comes to life at night.

Foodie spots  Sukhumvit Soi 38 for street food (although they will be forced to move locations next year), Audrey’s Cafe for bunch and After You for some of there famous Japanese shaved ice. The area is also home to quite a few tasty Japanese restaurants.

1. Airbnb Homey 1 BR Condo in Thong Lo

Bangkok airbnb apartment for foodies thonglo This charming apartment  has 2 beds, sleeps 3 and costs around $100 SGD per night. It is well maintained by its owners and only about a 10 minute walk to the Thonglor BTS, as well as Seenspace and many other bars and restaurants in the neighborhood.

Although it’s technically only 1 bedroom with a door, the video room can be closed off with a sliding divider to create another private area, so it’s really 2 private bedrooms in my opinion. Also comes with a common pool and a little convenience store within.

2. Airbnb 3 BR Furnished Roomy Apartment

This full apartment has 3 beds and can sleep 8 people total. It is $109 SGD per night – perfect for a small group of hungry friends. It’s $20 SGD extra for the 5th person onwards.

—Ekkamai Area—

Bangkok - Akamai Beer House

Around the neighborhood – Ekkamai is located just one BTS stop away from Thong Lor and has a similar friendly neighborhood vibe. There are plenty of cafes and bars to visit just off of Ekkamai Road. Spend your afternoon seeking out the hidden gems tucked away among the alleys.

Foodie spots Ekkamai, among other things, is home to a handful of great cafes. We tested and approved One Ounce Onion, Fill in The Blank and Ink and Lion to name a few.

3. Airbnb Minimalist 2 BR Condo with Pool

During our trip to Bangkok we stayed in this minimalistic 2 bedroom, $102 SGD per night apartment. While lacking charm and decor, it is a great, safe place for the hardcore foodie to crash between meals.

—China Town (Yaowarat) Area—

Bangkok - Chinatown yaowarat

Around the neighborhood – Crazy, busy, noisy, potent and packed with locals and tourists all trying to take in this sensory overload. Chinatown in Bangkok is a sight to be seen both day and night. The nearest MRT is Hua Lamphong station, which is on a different line from the BTS though, so it might not be as convenient to travel around.

Bangkok - Chinatown Bangkok - Chinatown

Foodie spots – Pretty much anything and everything in China Town. Being so compact together, you can easily bounce between endless street venders and roadside restaurants.

5. Airbnb Serviced Apartment Chinatown

The closer to Yaowarat Road the crazier it is, but this accommodation, inside of the Check Inn Chinatown, is set within an ideal proximity to Chinatown and can sleep 1 or 2 people and runs for $48 SGD per night. It’s more a commercial serviced apartment rather than a private one.

6.  Airbnb River view 1 BR Apartment

This cozy studio is within a 5 minute walk to the center of Chinatown and has 1 bed, sleeps 2 and costs $49 SGD per night. Kitchen, bed, living room all in 1 single space.

—Victory Monument Area—

Bangkok - Victory Monument

Around the neighborhood – Victory Monument is a major transportation hub and intersection in Bangkok. Lots of people often means lots of food options. The area can be pretty congested and hurried – but isn’t that part of what we love about Bangkok? Many local youths hangout in this area as its near to the schools as well.

Bangkok - Victory Monument

Foodie spots – Check out the rows and rows of the neighborhoods for well known boat noodles (Kuay Tiau Rua) next to the canal. A very local and rustic area without much tourists visiting.

—The EM District—

Bangkok - EmQuartier

Around the neighborhood – Part of the newly opened ‘EM District’, EmQuartier has nearly everything to offer in terms of shopping and dining, making this one seriously impressive one-stop-shop in the up and coming Phrom Phong area along the Sukhumvit line (nearest BTS Phrom Phong).

Bangkok - Siam

Around the neighborhood – Siam is pretty much the center of it all in Bangkok. The area is packed with massive shopping malls like Platinum, Terminal 21, hotels and street food everywhere you look. If you are unsure of what you are looking for, the area is a great jumping off point for your Bangkok food adventure.
