Asiatique the Riverfront | เอเชียทีค เดอะริเวอร์ฟร้อนท์ ***

(map) New night market located in a few century-old warehouses of the East-Asiatic Company next to the Chao Praya river. The view is great, there are many props and there's even a little tram to take you from the river front to the market.

Despite its luxury outfit, the market offers a wide variety of very affordable goods like clothes, accessories, home decorations, souvenirs and handicraft, and there's a wide range of restaurants and a food court.

The Calypso (ladyboy) Cabaret and Joe Louis (Thai) Puppet Theatre provide for additional (but not cheap) entertainment, and a fun and free boat ride from the Saphan Taksin BTS station completes the fun (but beware of the often long queues for the boat). Recommended. [Charoenkrung Road 72-76; night market] Asiatique The Riverfront
