=Travel= Thailand-Bangkok Evening @ Asiatique Riverfront

There are 2 main things to do at Asiatique Riverfront to ensure an enjoyable evening in Bangkok. Despite having lots of bad reviews from the western tourists in Tripadvisor, you are able to have a pleasant experience if you do the right thing in the right time at the right place.



The 2 main things undoubtedly involve a sumptuous meal and enjoying the spectacular view and refreshing breeze of Chao Phraya River.



Chao Phraya riverfront can be a romantic place for couple. If you come in a group, here is the best place to do wefie too.



Since Gibson was early that evening, so he decided to start on a lighter note. This Brown Fish stall that sells yogurt ice cream caught his attention with the name Gipanyi, which sounds like Jipangi.

Gipanyi's yogurt ice cream 99 Baht

If you had ever traveled to Korea, you will know Jipangi as a very popular local ice cream with this iconic “J” cone. Here in Asiatique, you get the Thai version with the name Gipanyi, Gibson can’t help but wonder if there were any connection with the Korean Jipangi or just simply an uncanny coincidence.

Brown Fish yogurt ice cream 129 Baht

Beside the Gipanyi, the original Brown Fish is the famous japanese Croissant Taiyaki that is served with yogurt ice cream.



When the sky turns solid blue, it is the best time to be heading to the Ferris wheel for some nice shots.



Another shot of the wheel.



If you willing to pay for a ride, the Ferris wheel do offer different packages from Adult ticket 300 THB, Child ticket 200 THB (height under 120cm), Senior ticket 200 THB (60+), Disabled ticket 150 THB, Private Gondola 1,000 THB (2 persons), VIP Gondola 1,500 THB (2 - 3 person) and VIP Gondola 2,000 THB (4 - 5 person).

Stir Fried Scallops with Black Pepper 300 Baht

We ordered quite a number of dishes, and this stir fried scallops with black pepper came first.

Stir Fried Venus Clams with Sweet Basil 180 Baht

Then the stir fried venus clams with sweet basil, Gibson likes the aroma of the basil and the clams were sweet too.

Seafood Clear Soup 350 Baht

Not listed in the menu as we had made a special request. Gibson liked the natural sweetness from the seafood and vegetable, and the garnish from the garlic oil enhanced its flavor, making it the choice of the night.

Deep Fried Sea Bass served with Fish Sauce 550 Baht

A bit pricy, but the fish is worth paying for. Really enjoy the crunchiness of the fish with the sweet and sour sauce.

Steamed Sea Prawns with Glass Noodles 350 Baht

A common Thai dish with a bit of wine aroma.

Charcoal Grilled Squid 350 Baht

Our last dish for dinner, a slightly crispy grilled squid with the aroma of charcoal, goes well with a mug of beer.



After dinner, we went for a Muay Thai Live show, where you learn more about the history of Muay Thai in a theater style setup. Most of the actors are good looking with well-toned bodies. After the show, the theater will be converted into a Muay Thai boxing ring where you will be witnessed with 2 live fights.
