Asiatique The Riverfront
What happens when you combine Thailand’s famous “Night Markets and Bazaars” with a modern-day shopping mall?… You get Bangkok’s Asiatique The Riverfront!
Built on once Thailand’s first international port, it is now a shopping complex made up of 1,500 shops, 40 restaurants, and two cultural theaters, inspired by the industrial design of the Colonial period.
Open from 5 pm to Midnight, Asiatique is divided into four shopping districts:
- Chareonkrung – Modern and traditional Thai culture through performing arts long with the main shopping area (souvenirs, handicrafts, jewelry, and clothing)
- Town Square – International dining scene and sports bars
- Factory – Cutting-edge fashion and gadgets (including Apple Store)
- Waterfront – the City’s longest public boardwalk (300 m) is lined with restaurants and events venues.
Sky Asiatique Ferris Wheel
Another cool attraction at Asiatique is the Sky Asiatique, a 200-foot tall, 42-gondola Ferris wheel overlooking the shopping complex.
