It’s no secret that Bangkok in Thailand has a wealth of chic hotels but if you’re looking for a home from home, you’re in luck as it has a vast array of holiday rentals too. The options range from serviced apartments – often with access to a pool and fitness centre – to artsy condos and homes, all conveniently located in the city’s central areas and bookable with Culture Trip.

Rental apartments don’t come much more swish (or better located) than this. Choose from one-, two-, or three-bedroom suites, all with open-plan layout, treacle-coloured floorboards and chic furnishings and lighting. Bathrooms, big enough to get lost in, come with marble-surround baths and kitchens are so slick you’ll be tempted to eat in. You also have access to a pool, fitness centre and children’s play area.

Sleek, stylish and sophisticated: these one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments deliver on form and function. Wood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and glossy, glass-topped furniture add urban modernity. If you can tear yourself away from the dreamy interior, there’s a squash court and indoor gym to get the blood pumping and a communal pool to cool off in afterwards. Located in the city centre, you’re moments from Bangkok’s must-see sights.

    Quiet poolside villa

    You don’t need to go to the beach resorts of Koh Samui or Phuket to enjoy some poolside rest and relaxation. This traditional Thai wooden villa, that resembles a temple with its sloped gabled roof, offers a great-value stay. It features an open-air kitchen (stocked with some basics) downstairs and a swimming pool. Set in a private gated community, it’s a quiet escape from the city but you’ll need to take taxis or motorbikes to travel into the centre as it’s quite far out.

    A traditional shophouse residence

    This apartment is named Ba Hao (house number eight), which means you’re in luck if you secure a booking in this renovated 40-year-old traditional Chinese shophouse residence, as eight is considered an auspicious number in Chinese culture. Three apartments are located upstairs from the bohemian Ba Hao Chinese bar. The fourth-floor room, decked out in a mix of old-school Thai and hipster Chinese decor, features a balcony and a bird’s-eye view of the temple Wat Traimit. There’s a shared lounge with a TV and Netflix and complimentary Thai breakfast. It isn’t cheap, but it’s classy and unique.
