Asiatique, The Riverfront Bangkok Night Market, opened in May 2012. Originally, this was the pier where a lot of the business trade activity took place.
Asiatique could say that it is the most upscale night market in Bangkok and not only popular among the tourists, but also local Thais.
Buy drink first.
Food court – crowded.
We had our dinner here. (In fact, I’m not really recommend to have the meal in Asiatique, food not nice at all & expensive. Anyway, the overall ambient is good)
Opening hours: 5pm to midnight
How to get there: There is not BTS station there and basically you only have 2 option, either by boat or taxi.
If by BTS – Take the BTS (skytrain) to Saphan Taksin station. Then walk to the river. There you can get on a free ferry boat to Asiatique The Riverfront – it’s about 15 minutes and you get to enjoy the nice view of the Chao Phraya river. The boat leaves from the Saphan Taksin station every 15 minutes, starting at 4:30 p.m. and the last boat leaves from the Asiatique pier back to Saphan Thaksin at 11:30 p.m.
(It’s best to avoid going by taxi, because the road that leads there suffers from chronic traffic jam)
