  • Come for the experience! The free complimentary river cruise from pier to Asiatique is an at least must do (once anyhow) for first time visitors. Nice range of clothing, leather wallets, curios, souvenirs and food. Food is not that great but it has the variety to sate the tourist travellers taste buds. For the young travellers, best place to go would be Rot Fai night market. It's more grungy and edgy compared to Asiatique.
  • An open air shopping and dining centre on the banks of the Chao Phraya river with a Ferris wheel to boot. It is extremely touristy, but in an a nice way. The management of Asiatique runs free shuttle boat services from the Saphan Taksin pier, next to its eponymous BTS Station
  • One of my lesser favourite Bangkok attractions, there's nothing wrong with it per say - it just feels like it's trying to be something it's not. It's a western influenced, fake old market - feels more like a boxed factory outlet with inflated prices. Things it has going for it: lots of (overpriced) bars, with some import selections, and the ferris wheel. Nice place for a date, but kind of lame for just a regular night out.
  • One of a must visit mall in Bangkok although is not luxurious type. There are some areas of shopping district that sells fashion at low to mid prices while there are a lot of restaurants to check out. Do also visit the harbor as you can see the Menam Chao Praya river crossing over Bangkok area.
  • One of the best tourist attraction in Bangkok. The free shuttle boat ⛴ service is available, but it can take you some hours of waiting time. Better choose the regular river boat and pay 20THB per person. Avoid the scam taxi 🚕 and tuk tuk driver on the way back. :)
