If you don’t know where to go for shopping in Bangkok, here’s a suggestion — Asiatique. In this clean and neat mall, you can find anything, which is very convenient because you don’t have to look for gifts and clothes in different places.
It’s possible to get to Asiatique by a free boat, which runs regularly between Asiatique and the Saphan Taksin pier. We also recommend visiting this place in the evening, in particular in order to ride on the Ferris wheel and look at Bangkok’s night illumination.
And yes, it’s a great place to see the sunset. In general, travellers praise the local atmosphere.
