Tina and I celebrated her birthday in Thailand, she hasn’t been in a while and had wanted to go. On this trip, we stayed in Novotel Sukhumvit 4 Bangkok. We also had one day for temples and cooking — the tour by Take Me Tour.
Seriously you can feel the show like it feels so real.
After that, we went around and it was a cool area to explore —- just a bit pricier than others in terms of shopping.
Despite that, I can assure you that you will still enjoy your visit to the Asiatique River front. Let me give you a a complete list of tips to serve as your guide in having a good time at Asiatique Riverfront- a 28 acres land space containing a thousand and half retail shops and almost half a hundred restaurants have long been waiting for your visit!
Best Travel Route Going to Asiatique
Most people will head here by car, it is convenient but also very traffic and may actually take longer. Instead you can choose one of the following options:
- Take a ride through Sathorn Pier
-Take a BTS Skytrain going Saphan Taksin (S6) Station
-Take a short walk through the Exit 2 going to the Central (Sathorn) Pier
-Prepare to ride in a shuttle boat through the Chao Phraya River and wait for your turn as this free ride occupies only 80 people at a time. But have no worries, the ride takes only up to 15 minutes and is open until 11 pm starting exactly 5 o’clock in the afternoon. Therefore, you have a total of 24 boat rides to choose from!
