How to Get There
The most convenient way to get to Asiatique would be by boat. Take BTS Skytrain to Saphan Taksin (S6) station and take exit 2 towards the Centrail Pier or also known as Sathorn Pier. There’s a free shuttle daily on the Pier which will take for 10 minutes (which I remember it is during 5pm).
If you don’t like too much crowded market place, Asiatique is best for you. But the price is a bit higher in here than in Chatuchak and Pratunam Market. You can find lot of shops and restaurants here, even some activities like experience to ride on their famous “Asiatique Eye” (Ferris wheel).
They even have Love Locks!! So cute hihi!
Got to experienced their Famous Ferris Wheel!!Yey!!

When going home, you can find metered taxi here, but I suggest to take a grab or uber (like we did) haha!
So that’s it guys! Next blog post is about Terminal 21! 🙂
