BANGKOK GREEN AREA
A Green City report by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in 2016 noted Bangkok as being “below average” in terms of “Land Use and Buildings”, a category in assessing the city’s population density and green space per capita.
According to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), green space in Bangkok is about 5.46 square metres per capita, a fraction of the EIU’s regional average of 39 square metres, while Singapore’s averaged an amazing 66 square metres.
Since green space is a key factor in enhancing a city’s quality of life and, in turn, property values, Bangkok falls well below regional competitors like Jakarta. Only Hanoi scores lower, according to CBRE Thailand.
