Bangkok’s status as a shopping paradise got a mega uplift recently with the opening of a new retail haven, Asiatique. Curious what differentiation Asiatique can offer after the uber creative Terminal 21, I popped by for a browse.
Although the irrepressible spirit of Thai creativity continues to be evident at Asiatique, I wasn’t too impressed with the character of this godown-turned-shopping enclave. On a reductionist term, it resembles a more organised, cleaner version of the Jatuchak Weekend Market, or Mahboonkrong (MBK) Center without air conditioning. Will share more about the place in Explore Life Lah!.
