The latest and most talked about attraction, Bangkok’s new night market called Asiatique is set to win the hearts of many. Since the closure of Suan Lum Night Market, many have been looking around for another night market in Bangkok, but none have really hit the spot like Suan Lum had.
Asiatique is not only a place for shopping, but also a place for dining. The atmosphere and the decorations are really quite cool and you can see many people taking photos. So, remember to bring your camera here!
Shopping here is easy with relatively wide walkways and it is quite well ventilated.
There are lots of shops here and you can find clothing, bags, deco, aromatherapy products and much more.
This is a shop you don’t wanna miss!
A shop selling lots of goodies and they have big packets of Pocky Biscuits too! I never fail to visit this shop whenever I’m here.
There are several restaurants for you to choose from. If you would like to chill out and have some drinks, then head over to the restaurants facing the river. Those restaurants nearer to the main road are more family oriented.
There is also interesting entertainment all around!
And something to note, Calypso Bangkok has shifted to Asiatique and is no longer at Asia Hotel.
There is a free shuttle boat from BTS Saphan Taksin to get you to Asiatique. If you want to avoid the jams, do take this boat!
Asiatique is just so beautiful and lively. It is open daily, so make sure you set aside time for this night market!
