Owner description: ASIATIQUE The Riverfront will be Bangkok’s first large-scale riverside project combining shopping, dining, sightseeing, activities and events under one roof. The strong cultural aspect is what sets it apart from other shopping malls. Embracing history, but avoiding the cultural clichés and traditional symbols, it strikes a balance between tradition and globalization.

This place has a history, being the area where the Danish east asiatic company had storage buildings etc. but hardly anything is left of that. There is however still some different atmosphere, next to the river etc, but it rather feels now like a designed tourist trap. Prices are high but not above high end hotels, but there is very little to do there, except buying overpriced souvenirs and food. In other words, this is not where you find the soul of Bangkok.

We went twice at night time. So lively and lots to see. Fireworks were great and had our first try at the fish spa. Lots of food to try. I would recommend this place.

We went here on our last night in Bangkok I plain wish we hadn’t . You get a free ferry to it from Saphin Taksin... it’s just a horrible fake place ... if you want sanitised no atmosphere fake markets with very expensive restaurants then do go !! For me it had zero redeeming features and as for the ferry back !!! Lots of river cruises start at the jetty so none of the “free” ferries could pick up ... so the Queue was ridiculous... so not only does it have no redeeming features it’s a pain to leave !!! Just avoid and enjoy the real Bangkok.. see the Queues for yourself !!

Asiatique has changed my perception of night market in Bangkok. It is well organised, relatively tidy and clean. Parts of it has air conditioning which is welcome for someone who can’t stand heat. There were musicians playing all sorts of music, plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from. You can easily spend three four hours there chilling and enjoying the excitements. Really worth a visit.

This is a sprawling market with food and shops. This was definitely more modern than other markets around Bangkok. I recommend coming here at night, it's lit up and you can get a coconut and stroll around.
