For those undecided on what type of food they would like to eat, Asiatique-the Riverfront is a huge complex that offers a wealth of global cuisines spread over an expansive 80,000 sq-m site.
The complex is divided into four areas: the Waterfront District; the Factory District; the Down Square District; and the Chareonkrung District. The Waterfront District is alongside the arrival area and is home to sophisticated restaurants, bistros and wine bars that enjoy prime river views.
The Down Square District provides a combination of Thai and Western restaurants, bars, cafes and pubs that cater for every budget and preference. Food is one of the main reasons people head to Asiatique and visitors will not be disappointed with the options. Ranging from inexpensive 100-baht dishes in an open food court where dozens of vendors offer a variety of local Thai dishes, to air-conditioned chic restaurants that serve sophisticated global – every taste is catered for in the 40-plus food outlets. Asiatique is easily accessible by a free ferry boat service that leaves from the Saphan Taksin BTS Pier.
