What is it?
Asiatique, Bangkok’s perfect combination of night market meets shopping mall. With over 1,500 boutiques and 40 restaurants, this is one shopping experience that cannot be missed!
Where is it?
Set on the riverside of Charoen Krung Road, Wat Phraya Krai inBang Kho Laem and only 10kms away from one of our preferred hotels — Well Hotel, this shopping complex is situated perfectly for our clients to make the most of the shop til you drop opportunity.
How to get there?
By boat: Take the BTS (skytrain) to Saphan Taksin station. Then walk to the river. There you can get on a free ferry boat to Asiatique The Riverfront — it’s about 15 minutes and you get to enjoy the nice view of the Chao Phraya river. The boat leaves from the Saphan Taksin station every 15 minutes, starting at 4:30 p.m. and the last boat leaves from the Asiatique pier back to Saphan Thaksin at 11:30 p.m. Don’t go by taxi, trust me.
Whats the big deal?
- Very safe
- Amazing shopping!
- Open late
- Arrive by boat
- Entertainment — including the famous Joe Louis Puppet Theater
