Asiatique The Riverfront, Bangkok
I have not seen anything quite like Asiatique before.
Asiatique is a surprising combination of shopping mall, nightlife, restaurants, as well as amusement park all in one space located away from the city center. Popular among local teenagers, this place is slowly gaining popularity from curious tourists who wish to experience a more laid-back atmosphere outside of jam-packed Bangkok.
How to Get to Asiatique BangkokThere are a few ways to get to Asiatique, but if you are a tourist on a budget, the best way would then be by boat using the Chao Phraya river. Alternatively, you can also get there by car/bus:
- Take the BTS and alight at the Saphan Taksin Station (S6).
- Board the Asiatique Shuttle Boat which will drop you right at Asiatique. Journey takes about 15 minutes.
Took the boat to get back and the journey was graced with beautiful sights of skyscrapers and landmarks:
