Bangkok Asiatique Mekong River
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Contributor Styfly Studio created this beautiful drone video of one of the most recognized of the newer landmarks of Bangkok, Thailand. It's called Asiatique: The Riverfront, and it's a large open air mall which opened in the Thai capital city in 2012. It occupies a site on the Chao Praya River which had fallen into disuse. Its signature is the Asiatique Sky ferris wheel; standing 60 meters (200 ft.) tall, it's one of the tallest in Southeast Asia.
Description: relax video.
Asiatique The Riverfront
Opening Hours: 17:00-midnight
Location: Chareonkrung Soi 74-76
How to get there: The easiest and fastest way to get there is via boat. Take the BTS to Saphan Taksin and jump on the free shuttle at the end of the pier. It only takes ten minutes, and the boat runs until 23:00. Taxis are not recommended as the traffic can be terrible in this area
A step apart from the rest of Bangkok’s night markets, Asiatique The Riverfront has created a new concept that fuses an outdoor shopping centre with the raw fun that i love about more conventional night markets in the Thai capital. Asiatique is a great spot to pick up some great souvenirs to take home – including a particularly strong range of handicraft-type goods – as well as to enjoy a fun evening out with plenty of food, drink and riverside views.
