Pointers To Select A Coworking Space In Bangkok

Owning or renting an office is not a feasible option for new entrepreneurs. The costs of renting an office space in Bangkok will escalate the budget. For solo entrepreneurs who do not have a big set up, renting an office is an avoidable cost. Working from home is another option for these entrepreneurs. But home has too many distractions and effects the concentration and productivity at work. Coworking spaces are a boon to such people.

Bangkok being the financial hub of Thailand has a wide number of coworking spaces. Choosing the right coworking space in Bangkok is a daunting task for many. Consider the following aspects before you finalize a space.

  1. Check the clients list of the coworking space in Bangkok to know the category of people who use the space. You should ideally choose a space, which has people, who match with your profile. Choosing the right community will help you to gain some friends, who understand the difficulties of working without an office. You might also benefit from shared experiences on how to operate successfully from coworking space.
  2. Check the facilities provided by the coworking space in Bangkok, before you zero in on one place. The space should offer all the necessary facilities required for conducive operation of your business. If your business needs you to have regular meeting with clients, select a place that has private meeting spaces. Some of the coworking spaces also have high-end amenities like boardrooms, fitness centres, libraries, audiovisual equipment etc.
  3. Consider the cost of renting the coworking space. The cost should include the usage expenses of all the amenities. The prices of the coworking spaces depend mostly on the location, size and amenities offered. Choose a coworking space that offers value to money and does not blow up your expenses.
  4. Location is another important factor to be considered when choosing a coworking space. Opt for a coworking space in Bangkok with favourable location. The space should be easily reachable and near to the mass transit stations. This will help you to escape the busy traffic and reach in time. Favourable location is also convenient to meet clients. Choose a location depending upon the nature of the business. Choose a quiet and isolated space if you need calm and serenity to concentrate and do your work. Choose a space with easy connections if your business involves frequent trips to the client’s office.

Experts Tell Bangkok To Leverage Tourism

Industry experts told Bangkok in a recent panel that, if the capital wants to transform itself the megacity that experts have envisioned it would become in five years, they have to leverage the hotel and tourism sectors, and the many Sukhumvit suites hotel across the capital.

Area Director Jesper Palmqvist, STR Asia-Pacific, said that Bangkok will experience continued growth in its hotel and tourism sector’s developments in infrastructure and performance, with positive investor and consumer outlook towards the country set to bolster the tourism and hotel sectors in the capital, as well as the other tourist hotspots across Thailand.

Mr. Palmqvist says that, with the past three years exhibiting continuous, and stable improvement in the hotel sector, Bangkok has successfully managed to move beyond the 2014 decline. Recently, the month of November 2017 saw the capital’s revenue per available room (RevPAR) growing to 3.4% compared to the prior year, alongside a strong supply growth, at 4.1%.

Further data from the STR shows that growth has been supported by the stable growth of demand, with a record of 5% across 18 months following the capital’s bounce back in 2015. The average Sukhumvit suites hotel also experienced the luxury of upping their rates, with the capital’s average hotel rates moving up by 2%, in spite of all the new competition constantly moving in. The data shows that this isn’t simply a lucky fluke, with 2017 having seven months that managed to set 10-year records in RevPAR performance.

STR and Mr. Palmqvist predicts that tourism in the county will continue its growth in the future as Thailand continues to offer a myriad of tourism attractions, with additional innovations to attract more tourists, especially in the field of gastronomy, since Thai cuisine has steadily been garnering fame across the international market.

He says, however, that not all hotels in the country’s tourism sector will benefit from the improved tourism in the country. In particular, hotels in the Sukhumvit sector are underperforming in comparison to the rest of the capital due to the sheer amount of competition.

Managing Director Bill Burnett, C9 Hotelworks, says that, within a five year time period, Bangkok’s electric subway system will grow to 464km, larger than London’s and New York’s 402km and 380km, respectively.

He expects that Thailand’s capital will the third megacity in the world, following China’s Beijing and Shanghai, in about five years’ time.

Capital City Of Thailand Solving The Issues With Street Cables

If you have visited Thailand before, you might have noticed the cables that are intertwined with one another – from electrical and telecommunication companies. These are crowding the street from one road to another as it hangs above like Christmas decorations available all year round. This is not a good sight considering the developments in Bangkok such as a 4 star boutique hotel in Sukhumvit and other upscale building in the area.

At the start of 2018, this is the first issue that has been addressed by the authorities in Bangkok as they are seen untangling the cable wires. This is because the cables are to be relocated underground in accordance with the urban renewal desired by the Thai military group ever since they overtook the authority in 2014.

The main goal of the project is to make Bangkok a safer place, to reduce the incidents of blackout in the city and to make the roads pleasing to the eyes of the locals and tourists.

The streets of Bangkok have been dealing with frayed cables for many years and majority of them are live and close to a human’s height. This is why many are treading the pavements with care. Some of the wires are tangled together close to electrical towers which are a hazard to the people passing by.

These wires are also exposed to natural elements thus they are prone to damage which leads to issues with the electrical system of the city.

The start of the de-cluttering campaign is set at Wireless Road which will soon be true to its name.

According to an official from the Metropolitan Electricity Authority of Bangkok, PrasonkKumpradit, Sukhumvit has been prioritized in November of last year because it is popular as a commercial road. This is where guests can book an accommodation at a 4 star boutique hotel in Sukhumvit and the place also has a high rate of foreigners residing around it. Tourists staying at the hotels in the area will spread the word about the clean road and wireless overhead once they see it first-hand.
