Is Bangkok Thailand Pet Friendly?

Thailand and Thais love and are very accepting of Dogs about town and in restaurants. It’s the infrastructure that’s the problem. Traffic congestion, too many narrow sidewalks full of vendors, commuters and street Dogs all inhibit getting around easily, let alone with a Dog by your side.

Still, Bangkok offers many beautiful parks, enclave living communities and cafes that are very Pet-Friendly.

Living here, I know that changing your routine for Dog walks is key to finding happiness with your Dog here in Bangkok and you will find that Bangkok has many Pet-friendly restaurants and parks! 

Walking out the door with fido on a leash and having a leisurely walk to a local park likely requires you carefully choose your accommodation. 

A car ride or Pet stroller is best for transportation to a local park or restaurant as Pets are not allowed on most public transportation such as the BTS or MRT.

You can hail a regular Pet-friendly taxi cab from a variety of taxis in Bangkok.

I almost always book online with GrabPet but, when I just walked out of the mall or grocery with all my bags there is always a line of taxis waiting outside.

Sometimes it’s just easier to take a regular taxi and not wait for GrabPet.

Be sure when booking to use Line or Whatsapp and Be sure to ask for a Pet-friendly taxi and when they arrive, that they turn on the meter or you negotiate the fare in advance.

Pet Friendly Neighborhoods in Bangkok

I travel full time and sometimes I settle in for 6 months so I can explore and write even more. In 2022 I am in Bangkok and will be here at least a year.

You will want to balance areas that are central to parks, business, shopping and dining for easy access to Pet-friendly areas and your work location or quiet/privacy needs for digital nomads or retirees.


  • Travel convenience.  Proximity to mass transit (BTS Skytrain & MRT Underground).
  • Exercise and Socialize Areas for Dogs
  • Clean, Well-Maintained, Quality housing options from affordable to super-luxury condos
  • Pet-friendly Restaurants and Cafes

1.Thonglor Ekkamai 

Ekkamai is an area that is quickly gaining popularity, attracting middle-class Thais and expats.

It has a hipster vibe and plenty of leisure options. From cafes and restaurants to co-working spaces, boutiques, specialty stores, and art galleries, Ekkamai has the lot.

It has the added bonus of being in the Sukhumvit area and being well connected by public transport; not only is it on the BTS line but it is also home to the Eastern Bus Terminal.

This neighborhood offers an enticing lend of the old and the new, with the trendy and the traditional often sitting side by side.

The housing options are varied, with large houses to rent on leafy residential streets, modern condos, and serviced apartments.

2. Silom-Sathorn

If you’re happy to pay a premium price for your home so you are city center, Silom-Sathorn is the ideal place to live.

There are many luxury homes and many studios offering all the modern comforts including an air conditioner in each room instead of like my place, with a unit only in the bedroom.

It’s easy to find a condo with Western bathrooms and kitchens and added extras for tenants like swimming pools and gyms.

The area boasts a great balance of upscale restaurants and local street food, there’s lots of nightlife, and the BTS Skytrain makes moving around the city easy.

Close to the river and the large and Pet-friendly Lumpini Park, Sathorn is a popular area for expats who like life’s little luxuries.

3. Ari

A bit outside city center is laid-back Ari with its huge expat population. It’s a great place to live for those who want easy access to the city’s heart yet want a clean and peaceful neighborhood with a local feel.

A relatively safe part of Bangkok, Ari has a range of stores that sell imported products, restaurants, cafes, and bars.

Attracting families, couples, and lone expats, Ari has something for everyone looking for a home-base in Bangkok.

4. Udom Suk

Udom Suk is a relatively calm Pet-friendly neighborhood with a local flavor, but still within Bangkok’s Central Business District.  

Udom Suk attracts tourists as well as locals, making the area more vibrant and diverse.

There are few foreign-influenced eateries and establishments, making it great for people who want to immerse themselves in Thai life.

You certainly won’t go hungry, though, as there are plentiful Thai restaurants and street food stalls serving delicious dishes for reasonable prices.

There are many legitimate massage shops for you to unwind and bring some balance into your life, a good variety of shops on the doorstep.

5. Ladprao

Ladprao offers a good, more affordable blend of business and leisure spaces.

It’s almost like a mini version of Bangkok compressed within one livable neighborhood.

A top choice for expat families with both human and animal kids, it boasts some of the nation’s best schools and plenty of green spaces.

Chatuchak market and the adjoining dog-friendly park market are also close by.

Close to the Northern Bus Terminal, the BTS sky train, and the MRT, getting around the city is convenient if you’re working here.  Remember, Pets are not allowed on most public transit.

Still, there are many markets and places to eat and the pace of life is lively without being overwhelming.

6. On Nut

I stayed here for about 6 months and love the walkability.  It is a bit further out along the BTS Skytrain line; however, you will get more space for the same price.  This is true of just about any big city. 

The residential area is mainly home to Thai people, but it is seeing larger numbers of professional expats and families moving in.

There’s a large Big C and Tesco grocery right off the BTS On Nut station. 

And a good variety of local Thai cuisine and foreign restaurants.

Digital Nomads and work remotely will find the co-working spaces especially convenient.

How I Find the Best Place to Live Long Term when Traveling

  • Before arrival I find City Center and map out the public transportation system. It’s best to stay along major transportation routes for ease of getting around and keeping my budget in check.
  • I use local guides and Facebook groups especially ones for Teachers and Expats. This give me a broader range of accommodation prices and neighborhoods.
  • I stay in a Hotel or Airbnb for the first 1 to 3 nights. Walk around a lot, ask locals and I find hiring a local for one full day to explore at least 4 neighborhoods in the City is well worth the money.
  • Once I have determined the best neighborhood for my needs, I check out monthly rentals of condos and apartments just outside of the neighborhood boundaries.
  • This is where rental prices are usually bit lower but still within walking distance of the eateries and transit stations.
  • I prefer to view the unit in the evening between 17:00 an 19:00 to get a feel for noise and traffic levels when people are coming home from work.
  • If staying in an Airbnb, I book one week and two days into the stay, contact the owner/manager, tell them I love the place but am looking for a longer stay.
  • Every single time, they respond offering me the same place with a private contract with no Airbnb fees.
  • Otherwise, I stay month to month until I know there are no plumbing or noise issues you cannot know just looking at the place.
