During the reign of King Chulalongkorn, Thailand’s first international port was created in 1884. The European nation was expanding its might towards Asia at the time. King Chulalongkorn recognised Thailand’s potential to become the world’s top country and decided to build links with Denmark. The next step will be the development of a port controlled by the East Asiatic Company. Mr. Hans Nille Anderson, of Danish origin, owns and operates a teak export business. The acquisition of a port firm marks the start of international trade. To this day, it is the key to Siam’s sustained sovereignty and independence between the Kingdom of Thailand and European countries. Today, the East Asiatic Port region is being restored as “Asiatique the Riverfront,” the first tourist attraction and retail style along the Chao Phraya River. It is the city’s newest landmark. For the first time, Asia’s largest riverside lifestyle, located on the Chao Phraya River, is open every day. ASIATIQUE The Riverfront is divided into four sections: the Charoenkrung District, the Town Square District, the Factory District, and the Waterfront District.
Charoenkrung District: For guests arriving by bus, this district is located in the front zone. The architecture was the first thing that caught people’s attention. It is lit and features a one-of-a-kind design. It has a variety of restaurants, such as KFC, Kimju, and Pizza Company. Each store, on the other hand, can guarantee a distinct and one-of-a-kind design. To record the awe-inspiring ambience, all visitors must raise their phones. In addition, the Charoenkrung district is home to a plethora of businesses selling souvenirs and artisan handicrafts. Charoenkrung was the first district to get a tourist commuter rail.
Town Square District
Town Square District: There is an outstanding clock tower in the centre of the area, which is suitable for gatherings. Every month, the city centre is divided into different activities. Surrounded by a range of restaurants priced in every style, everyone may choose to sit and observe the activities as a present, while eating great food. Cultural exchange between the east and the west. The number of available restaurants, beer gardens, and outdoor leisure places. On a plot of more than 2,000 square metres.
Industrial District: A massive water tank is placed in a 100-year-old sawmill building designed in a new-generation ambience, signifying a factory area designed for fashionable social meetings. The neighbourhood also has fashion and accessories stores.
Waterfront District: Another well-known district because it serves as the initial impression for travellers that must traverse the coast. Following that, tourists will come across a lengthy run of European-style warehouse buildings that are home to foreign restaurants and wine bars. They’re ready to be presented with black cocktails in the midst of a never-ending dusk. At the end of the day, visitors can still see the amazing panorama from the shoreline, with gorgeous tall structures in front of us.
ASIATIQUE's intriguing landmark The Riverbank
A new landmark on the Chao Phraya River is the Sirimahannop Tall Ship.
It was created to memorialise and mimic the famous “Thoon Kramom” ship, a 475-ton three-masted ship that was the greatest vessel in Siam and brought riches from the western seas to the Kingdom of Siam. The Thoon Kramom was built during the early commercial period between Siam and western countries, as a result of King Mongkut’s (Rama IV) promotion of free trade, which resulted in the signing of the Bowring Treaty with Great Britain, resulting in trade and bilateral ties. When an attack from the west threatened Siam, the Thoon Kramom, which was already docked and ready to function on the northern side of Phra Chulachomklao Fort, was turned into a warship and played an important role in protecting the Chao Phraya estuary. After being assigned to the naval apprentice school, it was later decommissioned. On March 21, 1923, the Royal Thai Navy utilised its last three-masted ship for warfare, the Thoon Kramom.
Art Festival & Living Museum
Through the use of innovative, interactive technology, a living museum offers a new way to enjoy and learn about art and culture. To use The Memory Lanes, a set of 36 main attractions that allow visitors to experience the memory journey, to produce augmented reality visuals for presentations. With aspects that reflect the region’s past in the arts, culture, and way of life, which was once a centre of international trade. Through recreations of first-time encounters. It is separated into three key zones: the water zone of connection and relationships, the land zone of wealth, and the cultural heritage zone, which communicates the importance of Thai identity. The Art Festival, on the other hand, takes art immersion to a new level by weaving stories about art, culture, history, and the way of life into diverse kinds of art. Painting, street art, sculpture, and other kinds of art are incorporated throughout the project in various regions. Art and culture are also popular photo spots, inviting tourists to take photos and check-in.

What is the best way to travel?
Use the BTS sky train system and the Chao Phraya Express Boat to get about.
The BTS sky train system, which can avoid traffic bottlenecks in Bangkok and save you time, is the best way to commute. When you arrive at any BTS station, depart at “Siam” and travel to the other side to wait for the Sukhumvit line, then out at “Saphan Taksin (S6)”, and walk to exit number 2, where you can discover the Sathorn Pier of the Chao Phraya Express Boat under the BTS station. Then board the shuttle boat to ASIATIQUE The Riverfront Pier and get off at ASIATIQUE The Riverfront Pier. (There are two options: a free boat from ASIATIQUE or the Chao Phraya Express Boat, which costs roughly 40 baths.) The starting point is any BTS station; for further information, see the website listed below.
