With a festival-market-meet-living-museum concept. Asiatique The Riverfront is a colonial-style bazaar comprising 1500 shops, 40 restaurants and two cultural theatres in an open-air environment. Asiatique The Riverfront aims to recreate the spirit of the past, when people commuted regularly by boats and streetcars, fused with modern day recreation options. Visitors can indulge in the variety of shops and eateries and also visit ancient tram tracks, a historic pier, century-old warehouses and waterfront cranes. In the town square district, visitors will find the new 400-seat calypso cabaret theatre as well as the award winning Joe Louis Puppet Theatre. Asiatique The Riverfront is located on the oldest road in Bangkok, Charoeng Krung Road, and is open every day from 17.00 to 24.00. The easiest, and probably the most entertaining way to get there is by boat. A free shuttle boat picks up visitors from Sathorn Pier underneath Taksin BTS station every 10-15 minutes.
