Asiatique The Riverfront is the latest amazing attraction in a city regarded as one of the top destinations in the world.
This riverside project - which eventually will span more than 29 acres - features an unbeatable combination of exclusive haute coutere shopping, dining, sightseeing, activities and events. Ideally situated along the Chao Praya River, known as the "river of kings," this enchanting, one-stop destination is quickly becoming one of Bangkok's trendiest landmarks.
Asiatique has something everyone - from tourist visiting from every corner of the globe to local discerning shoppers and families. Asiatique combines together all the essential elements that define what Bangkok was and what it will become in near future. Thai traditional and modern culture is evident everywhere - through performing arts shows such as the Joe Louis Puppet Theatre, and the famous ladyboy Calypso Bangkok Theatre as well as more than 1,000 retail shops selling Thai handicrafts and souvenirs.
And if the destination weren't enough, just getting to Asiatique is an adventure. You can go by taxi or take the modern sky train from your location in town, out to the Chao Praya River, that winds through central Bangkok, and then hop on short 10-minute scenic boat ride right to the Asiatique pier.
Once on the grounds you’ll experience not only a global lifestyle but a piece of Thailand history. The riverfront area once belonged to the Royal Family during the reign of King Rama 5th (Colonial Period) in the late 1800s. During this period Asian countries were being threatened by invasion from European superpowers and so wisely the King established relations with a good friend Denmark. Apart of this process was the construction of the piers now know as Asiaitique.
Asiatique The Riverfront is a must-see on your next trip to Thailand and on subsequent trips as well. This site will continually add new and exciting attractions, such as the largest ferris wheel in Asia, and additional shops and fine restaurants.
Asiatique the Riverfront - "the Jewel on the River" - is fast becoming a central atraction in Bangkok. So come and visit the Grand Palace, The Temple of Dawn, Terminal 21, Siam Paragon, Emporium, Central World, the roof top restaurants such as Sirocco and Vertigo, but most definitely visit Asiatique The Riverfront.
