Initially, we arrived in Bangkok for 2 months, but we liked classes at the local center of North Light (Daria is already writing about him article) and we decided to stay for another month. Unfortunately, our did not want to extend the apartment on the 29th floor, so I had to move. Actually, I was not looking for a new home, the agency that gave us the first apartment offered itself an option in condominium opposite. Apparently they have their own personal arrangements. with the owners, otherwise for 1 month nobody would have passed anything to us, would have to live in a condo hotel for a lot of money (a review of apartments and apartments in our area.

The apartment in Chewathai has become smaller than the previous one and more “empty”. It usually happens, there is only furniture. But we have already gained good enough, so we brought it with me: dishes, crock-pot, kettle, blender, bed linen and towels. So that there is no problem with this It’s a pity, in Krabi we don’t get it, just does not fit in the suitcases, and there, too, this is most likely not will be in a rented house.

Apartment with a “design” and very cute: everything is clean, the furniture is new, good plumbing; laminate on the floor (it is softer to fall on than on tile). In general, we like everything. There are only three real minuses: lack of internet, sunny side (you have to curtain windows and include kondei) and low furniture. The latter generally leads Thoughts about the fact that this is such a flat bachelor, absolutely not sharpened by a little boy who is happy to get into everything drawers and throw all the nightstands. Of course, you can still find fault, and include: small refrigerator, cramped kitchen without a table, glass dining table, no personal washing machine. To good you get used to it quickly On the other hand, the apartment suggests that you live here for a long time, and you yourself acquire the furniture you need and household appliances.

But in general, I still amazed Thais love to inefficient, angular and sometimes too bulky furniture – one only a round glass coffee table is worth something. We are whole the day they thought where to stick it so that nobody would drop it, as a result generally tied it up. Also finishes the ill-conceivedness of some of things: the doors stumble upon each other, turn around in the kitchen, there is not a single shelf on the wall (so you want to drill holes and hang something), not rational use of space. This concerns not only our current apartment, but in general. Although, for sure, this is not only the Thais.

We are experiencing that the chair can break the glass
To hide tv, had to put the tables on each other
There is good fitness in our condominium. Yes, it is not full gym with barbells and a full range of simulators, but not bad at all. I personally have enough About the pool yet nothing I can say I am not a fan of swimming, but I hope that the water will be there without cooling, otherwise Egor again will not want to enter the water, as well as in the previous apartment.

Now we live on the 9th floor, and the phone catches much better, than on the 29th. Although, 3G from Dtac for some reason does not like these heights. Checked on the 6th floor and there everything is in order. And since we have there is no landline internet (too short a time), then we are very need mobile internet. While here we have found the option in the temporary using internet from true move.
There is also an Internet in the lobby on the first floor. But he is some strange: somewhere around 20 o’clock works, and in the afternoon the laptop is also not always connects, you have to completely delete the memorized wifi there and create it again. And in the lobby mosquitoes! Straight hordes, the day is not very worried, but closer to the evening you sit right in the cloud. Hello islands!

P.S. In this condominium there is no possibility to rent an apartment through reception. Therefore, two options, or go to the agency that located at the bottom of the condominium Complete Rajaprarop, or search hosts on ad sites. How to look for an apartment in Bangkok, I already wrote.
P.P.S. After leaving the apartment we were charged 1,000 baht for cleaning, this includes washing the master’s bed linen.
