This was taken this evening as the sun was setting on Bangkok. I turned the corner and was amazed by this awesome view.
I went to Asiatique last night and found that is completely open and they have added a huge ferris wheel. Bangkok has transformed the old dock area along the Chao Phraya River into a fantastic night spot. Asiatique is officially a night market and a great place to have dinner with a great view of Bangkok's great Chao Phraya River. The Ferris wheel, called “the Big Wheel”, not only gives a great view of the riverfront area while taking the ride but gives the riverfront a great new look.
There is even a free ferry from Bangkok's Central Pier, under the Taksin Bridge to make it easy to get to in your evening travels.
The photos below were taken last night. An awesaom night on the river!
