Bangkok Day 2: Asiatique The Riverfront

After our rest in the hotel, we were ready to set off to our next destination to Asiatique The Riverfront.
We walked to Nana station and took a BTS down to Saphan Taksin station. 

From the station, we just followed the signage above and made our way to the river and queue for the free ferry boat to Asiatique The Riverfront. Be prepare for a wait because the queue was freaking long but the queue moved fast as the ferry could take lots of passengers at one go. Every interval is about 15 minutes.

Finally we have reached the front of the queue and ready to board the next ferry boat when it arrived. Standing in front will guarantee us a seat. Boat ride is 15 minutes away to Asiatique.

Throughout my boat ride journey, I was admiring at the scenery of Bangkok, watching the city line that passed by. Being in a foreign land gave a different feel to the city line as compared with our home country. Same same but different.

Being close to the water, sometimes I could feel droplets of water splashed up when the driver speeds up.

We spotted the Asiatique Sky Ferris Wheel, the place we were heading to. We were near to our destination. 

We reached Asiatique The Riverfront which housed many restaurants, boutiques and a night bazaar. The place is only opened at 5pm, so there is no need to come early. We reached at about 6.30pm.

The first stop that we went to was Juliet Love Garden where the fences were attached with love locks that were filled with the names and love message. The fences were beautifully filled with all affection from the love locks that is well look after by the Juliet statue.  

We purchased one love lock and pen down our names and wishes, and locked it at the fences.

We left our love lock with at Juliet Love Garden, under the guardian of Juliet statue.

While walking around, we had coconut ice cream that comes with a bottle of coconut drink. Coconut ice cream is something we have everyday when we were at Bangkok whenever we see the ice cream stalls.

We went to explore the botiques and bazaar, I didn't purchase much things except for some pouches for my friends because the price was pricey as compared to those I could get at Pratunam Market.

We chanced upon Why 97 Pub & Restaurant and decided to check it out. Why 97 offers a casual dining atmosphere and has a large alfresco area that can accommodate the crowds looking for casual meal and drinking with friends or family.

Life is so relaxing when we traveled for holiday. No commitment and worries, everything is at our own pace.

I ordered ice milk tea while bf ordered coconut smoothies. Both tasted marvelous.

Our dinner. 
I was still feeling full from my late lunch so I didn't manage to finish all. But the food and drinks served here was good, it's worth to pay a visit. 

We spent our night chilling away at Why 97, immersing in the live band performance and our hearty dinner. Unwinding ourselves from work and enjoying the present moment.

The live band brought us many familiar English pop songs such as One Call Away and See You Again. You can just let the band knows the song that you want to dedicate and your message.

After the dinner, we slowly made our way back to the jetty. We passed by Asiatique Sky Ferris Wheel, the giant wheel was magnificent and there was a long queue for the ride. 

It was nearly 9pm so we went to queue for the boat ride back to the BTS station. We didn't manage to get a seat when going seat so we have to stand throughout the journey. Good bye, Asiatique.

On our way to the hotel, we bought the collagen peptide again from 7 eleven and drank it before sleep.

Felt so good to be back in hotel, a comfort place to rest. Went on bed after a shower. 
Good night, day 3 is coming.
