The idea of Asiatique Riverfront is to offer an area where the people from Bangkok and tourists can spend a pleasant evening while enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of the Chao Phraya River. You can stroll along the promenade and enjoy a magnificent sunset; after that do some shopping at one of the 1000 boutiques that Asiatique has to offer.

Shopping makes hungry, which is no problem because there are plenty nice Thai and International restaurants at Asiatique the Riverfront. Asiatique also offers two theaters including the Joe Louis Puppet Theater that closed down 2 years ago and luckily has the chance to reopen again in Bangkok. At the Calypso Theater you can enjoy one of Bangkok’s best lady boy shows.
