Asiatique the Riverfront
WHAT: One of Asia’s largest integrated lifestyle projects, this waterfront mall will open this month with more than 1,500 shops and 40 restaurants, found within buildings dating back to the early 20th century.
WHY: This expansive hub offers visitors a chance to shop, dine and relax under one roof. It has 12,000m2 of open space for events and activities, while a 300m walkway affords panoramic views of the Chao Phraya River. Its theatres will feature Calypso Cabaret and Joe Louis puppet shows, some of Thailand’s best-loved performances.
