ASIATIQUE The Riverfront is Bangkok’s first large-scale riverside project combining shopping, dining, sightseeing, activities and events under one roof. The strong cultural aspect is what sets it apart from other shopping malls. Embracing history, but avoiding the cultural clichés and traditional symbols, it strikes a balance between tradition and globalization.
If you’re ever in Bangkok, make sure to come check this place out. It’s open from 4PM until Midnight.
Asiatique the Riverfront is a real paradise for shopping-lovers. There are more than 1,000 different boutiques and shops. For example, the Chareonkrung District offers souvenirs and handicrafts, or the Factory District specializing in unique fashion, accessories and beauty products. The prices of the entire market are a bit higher than other local Bangkok night markets. Nevertheless, with some bargain skills you can make some great deals.
The glittering Ferris wheel, the Bangkok Eye, is the main attraction of Asiatique the Riverfront and can hardly be missed when strolling through the market. Hop on if you fancy a ride and enjoy the breath-taking view over Bangkok, the river and the breath-taking skyline. The trip costs around 400 baht and takes about 10 minutes. Other small rides are just around the corner.
