A Little Bit of Everything BKK: Asiatique The Riverfront

Assuming you have a very short lay over, you'd probably want to go to a place that will let you experience a little bit of everything a city has to offer. Asiatique, The Riverfront is just that. To sum it up it's  Thai Food x Chao Phraya River x Night Market x City Scape (via ferris wheel) x Entertainment = Shutter Bug Heaven. (picture here, picture there, picture everywhere!)

Aside from indulging your inner photog you can...

Get a meal at Baan Khanitha - Good thai food with a very nice ambiance. It's by the river and is over looking the river. (pricey but worth it). 

Tip: Go alfresco but if you can’t stand the heat, eat indoors (aircon) and get a table on the second floor. 

The place gets pretty crowded, it’s best to come early (6pm-ish). Better yet call to reserve a table. http://www.baan-khanitha.com/venues.php?branch=asiatique There are other restos you can dine in but if you want good food and ambiance, you can’t go wrong with Baan Khanitha.

Shop till you drop. Best things to buy here are souvenirs although there are tons of other stuff such as clothes, bags, shoes, houseware/decor, home accesories etc (you get the picture). 

There’s word that vendors of the closed Suan Lum Night Bazaar have relocated here. If you have been Suan Lum before - think chic/hipper suan lum by the river. 

Ride the Asiatique Sky - the highest ferris wheel in Bangkok. 

Watch a cabaret show at Calypso (warehouse 4). (That's not me)

Asiatique is open from 6pm till midnight. It is accessible by BTS till SaphanTaksin station, then take Asiatique’s service boat.
