Asiatique The Riverfront is one of a most prominent open concept shopping mall & night market in Bangkok. When it hit night, the whole place is bustling with shoppers. The area were once well known as a international trade port has now been transform to house more than 1500 boutiques and 40 restaurants within this premises.
Love the whole concept of conversion from old port warehouse to modern yet rustic look at this river front..
To visit this place, best is during the sun set as you can hop into their fairy’s wheel and enjoy the magnificent river front view or head to their front with wide streets run between each warehouse and choose one of the F&B and enjoy the view.
with my best friend Goft, thanks for bring me around again. 😀
For those who love to take more pictures, there are more area and props for you to take creative pictures with anchor, steel human statue that previously work in this busy port, tram car & many others. The whole area certainly do transport you back to the 1900’s century when this area were once the main highlight and now it still is, in the modern way.
In the heart of hangar there is this clock tower that house a mini lover garden, with many love birds pay a visit, walk around in a sequence then come out and place a lock with their love sealed and place it on the fence.
In some of the hangers, house many vendors that sells from cheap bargain goods to local designer with accessories, souvenir, handicraft, jewelry and others.
Love some of the food kiosk which is unique in its concept.
At the entrance facing main road, there is where all the main attractions are, with upscale fast food chain, entertainment area such as Live Muay Thai show at The Stage, historical board of Asiatique and others.
Some street performance. . .
Took a break at Love Milk that sells variety of colorful drinks and interesting food.
Nothing fantastic as the drink is too sweet and the savory bread taste kinda weird with the base sauce.
Paper craft .. .
Pop up draft beer stall . ..
Its a very huge area as you will be spending quite a lot of time here. Take your time and stroll around, and I miss the moment where enjoying one of the restaurant with casual chit chat and wine that facing the riverfront.
