Bangkok Riverside Nightlife
Visiting: Asiatique, Bangkok Riverside, Chao Phraya River
Duration: 4 hours
Not only is Bangkok a vibrant city to visit by day, but it really ignites after dark! Our Bangkok Riverside Nightlife tour puts you in the midst of all the action along the beautiful Chao Phraya River.
After boarding your motor coach at the pier, you will travel through the tropical countryside, passing tapioca fields and rural villages along the way. When you arrive into Bangkok in the early evening, you will encounter the city at its liveliest, with disco boats floating on the water and restaurants filled with locals enjoying an after work dinner or drink. While this might be a little early for you to “shake your booty”, it is a great time to visit Asiatique - the newest Bangkok night bazaar!
Not only is it popular with tourists, but also local Thais, and is definitely the most upscale night market in Bangkok. Look for souvenirs, shop for fashion items and accessories, or grab a bite to eat in the outdoor food court. From Japanese to Turkish, there are plenty of international dining options, and after your meal, you can walk down to the river banks for a beer or cocktail while watching the world go by.
If you want a cultural fix, why not take in a show at the Joe Louis Puppet Theater, which presents traditional folk tales using classic Thai puppetry. These fun shows are accompanied by a live orchestra, and often blend ancient Asian history with modern pop icons, making them appealing to all ages.
For those intrigued by Thailand’s ladyboy culture, you can head to the Calypso Bangkok Theater where they present nightly shows amidst much glitz and glamour. Don your feather boa and get into the spirit as they mime Cher covers and parade their attractive illusions!
