Bangkok City


Bangkok has been Thailand's dominant city since the eighteenth century. Established as the capital in 1767 after the fall of the ancient city of Ayutthaya, Bangkok is located on one of southeastern Asia's most important rivers, the Chao Phraya. In the 1980s and 1990s, Bangkok underwent rapid modernization, growing to approximately ten million people, making this the only major city in a country of villages and small towns. Bangkok's ancient palaces and Buddhist temples contrast with high rises and traffic jams. Dense air pollution blankets the city. In fact, police directing traffic are required to wear masks. Still, despite modern problems, Bangkok is a major tourist destination, drawing millions of visitors each year.

Chocolate ville

Chocolate Ville is opening a new restaurant in Bangkok. Later on. I'm not the only restaurant I know. Because of the extensive renovation that will have a lot more in the future. (Expected to be several restaurants and stores multiple lines. European concept but a little out. Gathered around me. The Italian restaurant. French restaurant. Bakery shop, ice cream shop, wine ... I guess it ^ ^ "). 
things Chocolate Ville is very clear is that the first view. Atmosphere and decor in it.People like to say that Europe is meticulously decorated with not just make a light orange or misleading in any way. Food sold now are of Italian. Western food here. Inexpensive too. That pizza is the same price with the Pizza Hut or the Company itself here. (Although the decor orchestrated this. Food prices are not positive, but the atmosphere was designed to do very well ^ ^). figure out before watching it. A picture from the website of Chocolate Ville me.


Bangkok, Thailand now has a cool new hangout called Asiatique. Can shop in comfort and cheap, the tourists are also treated to views of the Chao Phraya River. Asiatique on the Riverfront, a large new shopping complex next to the lifestyle of Bangkok Chao Phraya River, is set to become one of the main purposes of entertainment for tourists.

With a design inspired by the day as the Bangkok riverside trading post during the reign of King Rama V, from 1868-1910, Asiatique resembles premier dock with a row of warehouses. Accordingly, it is actually on land once owned by Danish company East Asia and some of the original architecture, more than 100 years, has been arrested.

For now packed with locals, many of them can not help but compare it with Lum Night Bazaar Suan expensive set. And with good reason. Open from 5 pm to midnight, Asiatique has some similar shops in the Night Bazaar, and Joe Louis Traditional Puppet Theatre and Calypso – a famous transvestite cabaret – will move in next month.

Chatuchak week end market

Once only popular among wholesalers and traders, Chatuchak Weekend Market has reached a landmark status as a must-visit place for tourists. Its sheer size and diverse collections of merchandise will bring any seasoned shoppers to their knees – this is where you can literally shop ‘till you drop’.
The 35-acre (68-rai) area of Chatuchak is home to more than 8,000 market stalls. On a typical weekend, more than 200,000 visitors come here to sift through the goods on offer. Veteran shoppers would agree that just about everything is on sale here, although not all at the best bargain rates. But if you have one weekend in Bangkok, squeeze in a day trip to Chatuchak Weekend Market and you will not be disappointed.

If you can dream it up, Chatuchak probably has it. Here, you will be amazed at the sheer variety of merchandise, whether a Moroccan lamp, an antique wooden chest, a pair of vintage Levi’s jeans, or, on the exotic side, a python.
Although it’s impossible to name all, the selection of goods being offered at Chatuchak can be roughly divided into 11 categories:
  • Clothing & Accessories (sections 2-6, 10-26)
  • Handicrafts (sections 8-11)
  • Ceramics (sections 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 25)
  • Furniture and Home Decoration (sections 1,3,4,7,8)
  • Food and Beverage (sections 2, 3, 4, 23, 24, 26, 27)
  • Plants and Gardening tools (sections 3, 4)
  • Art and Gallery (section 7)

  • Antiques and Collectibles (sections 1, 26)
  • Miscellaneous and Used Clothing (sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 22, 25, 26)
When buying goods at Chatuchak, particularly ‘antiques’, it is wise to exercise a few precautions. Check your goods thoroughly to see whether there is any damage, as many vendors sell factory rejects. For ‘antiques’, don’t trust the vendor when he tells you it is genuine. It’s better to bring along an expert, unless you are happy with what you are paying for. 

The weekend market is open on Saturdays and Sundays, 09:00 - 18:00, and Fridays 18:00 - 24:00. Plant sections are also open on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 07:00 - 18:00.
