Asiatique Sky is Thailand's first large Ferris wheel. The wheel has been in operation since the end of 2012 and is located in the Asiatique promenade. The giant Ferris wheel gives off a purple glow at night, though it also changes colors. The promenade in front of the Ferris wheel hosts live music, creating a fantastic scene. You can look around while on the Ferris wheel and enjoy the enchanting scenery of the Chao Phraya River at night. You can also board a cruise ship and view the Ferris wheel beside the river. The scene is very romantic.

The most convenient and popular way to get to Asiatique would be by boat. Take the Bangkok Sky Train (BTS) to Saphan Taksin (S6) and take Exit 2 towards the Central Pier, also known as the Sathorn Pier. There, you will find the free daily shuttle boat heading towards Asiatique with a frequency of 15 minutes from 5pm to 11pm. The boat ride takes approximately 10 minutes and can accommodate up to 80 people.
Not only is the shuttle fast and convenient, the ride to Asiatique via the Chao Phraya River also offers stunning views of the well-known continental hotels and buildings that are located along the river banks. Besides the modern structures, you can also see some well preserved old buildings that are used for housing. A ferris wheel that is visible from afar marks your final destination. Sit back and enjoy the cool evening breeze.
Since Asiatique opens its doors at 5pm and cease operation at midnight, it is advised to plan ahead how much time to allocate for shopping, eating and trying out different activities. Not to worry, there are maps situated around the area to ensure that you are on the right track.
When you are on vacation in Bangkok, don't forget to visit Asiatique The Riverfront. Asiatique is a nightlife center & night bazaar, which is open-air, on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. There is ASIATIQUE SKY, the tallest ferris wheel in Thailand. Oh yes, from the articles I read, in Asiatique there are 1,500 shops and 40 restaurants or food outlets. So, of the thousands of shops, I recommend 3 tenants that you must visit! :)
Mango Tango. Although there may be many places in your area that sell mango desserts, you should try this Mango Tango. The sweetness of the mango and coconut milk blends very well. Fresh!
Love Milk. if you have ever visited Thailand, you will most likely taste Nom Yen which is also known as Nom Chompoo. It is a pink milk that is very popular among young and old. So, of the many Nom Yen sellers at Asiatique, you should try this Love Milk brand. It's great!
Tao Kae Noi Land. Who doesn't know this snack made from seaweed with a savory taste? Now imagine if you were in 1 store that contained all Tao Kae Noi with various variants? It's really heaven :)
One of the coolest open air shopping mall in Bangkok with cool amusements is at Asiatique The River Front. The time we went there is we get a free ferry ride in Saphan Taksin Station. While on the boat it feels like you got a free tour even the ride is very short.
The shopping mall showcases a lot of local products that we all love also restaurants serves different cuisines that you can choose! Why travel to Thailand if your not choosing Thai food?! of course we choose Thai food! it’s Yum!
