Amongst the many delights the Thai capital Bangkok offers visitors is the amazing shopping opportunities it provides. If you desire a fine Bangkok resort a discerning choice would be the Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa. This appealing accommodation is reputed for its tasteful interiors, attentive service and fine selection of amenities.

One of Bangkok’s most attractive shopping locations is the appealing Asiatique The Riverfront night market. In fact this enthralling attraction may be called a fully fledged lifestyle feature as it also contains an array of outstanding dining and entertainment options.

The stores and boutiques of Asiatique have been constructed within the former warehouses of a once well-known trading company. In fact this recently completed complex has been intended as a tribute to Bangkok’s original function as a trading post. As the most prestigious night market in the city it is often frequented by foreign visitors as well as Thais.

Many diverse attractions may be found in this captivating compound, with pride of place going to the innumerable shops and boutiques that offer a splendid array of merchandise. Fashion apparel is a local highlight, along with handicrafts, souvenirs, home furnishings, furniture, electronics and much more. Although shoppers will almost certainly obtain good value for the money they spend, this is not a place where you will find cheap bargains as in other after dark markets in the city.

Dining options are a highlight here, with an array of upscale restaurants, an attractive sports bar and international culinary specialties. In fact you will find Thai, Italian, Japanese, American, Korean, Chinese, Turkish and other specialties here.

Not to be missed are the various kinds of entertainment offered at this venue. Visitors will be able to enjoy puppet theatre and the well known Bangkok Calypso Theatre which features no less than fifty artistes in each performance. The overall ambience at Asiatique is lively, whilst not being busy or overcrowded.
