If you want to get away from the crowded streets of Bangkok, Asiatique is the place to be.
How to get there?
Asiatique is just a free boat ride away from Saphan Taksin BTS station. Remember that the boat runs only till 23.00 so unless you want to be stranded there, you better leave on time. (Joking! You can also take a cab but its boring!)
What’s so special?
Other than the cool breeze, the breathtaking view from the Ferris wheel is what takes the cake!
If you wish to splurge on a good meal, there are a number of fine dining restaurants in and around Asiatique. However, if you’re a smart shopper, you better carry some snacks/food with you. I would recommend a huge packet of chips / popcorn and a drink.
