    It's about 100bt in a taxi and takes about 30 mins or 80bt on a motortaxi and takes about 10mins but is a bit hairy.

    Transport

    If a 100 baht taxi from the Mall Bangkae to Wong Wian Yai BTS is too much, take the no. 84 bus. There are regular and air con ones, so from 7 to 15 baht. Outside of rush hour takes 40 minutes to 1 hour to Krung Thonburi BTS.

    Condos

    As for condos, there are so many, you could go down almost any side street and one would be there.

    There's the new LumpiniVille condo, opposite the Tesco Lotus, which is about 7-8,000 baht. t's a one bedroom, with living area and kitchenette, and a communal swimming pool.

    Bangkae Condo Town, Phetkasem Soi 62, 3.800 baht basic, 4,800 baht for nicer room, 7,000 baht for 2 bedroom condo.

    Baan Itsara, Phetkasem soi 32, about 12,000 baht, communal swimming pool, separate bedroom, kitchen area.

    Phetkasem Soi 78, 3,300 baht, small rooms.

    Metro Park, 7-8,000 baht. Not in Bangkae, but nearby. Communal swimming pool, kitchenette.

    But really your best bet is to take a walk and then see what's available.

    Malls

    The Mall Bangkae
    Central Phra Ram 2
    The Mall Tha Phra
    Big C
    Carrefour

    Bars

    Mostly Thai bars but still okay.
    Am Fine Thanks - Near Bangkae Condo Town
    Rose Garden
    Hot Line Digital nightclub - name may have changed.

    Why are you in Bangkae against your wishes??????
