Since its inception, Bangkok’s night bazaar Asiatique has proved exceptionally popular with shoppers and grazers alike – after all, what could be nicer than a gentle evening’s shopping in the balmy climes of Bangkok, along with good dining options and even a 60m Ferris wheel for the adventurous? Just an easy (and free) 10-minute river shuttle service ride from Saphan Taksin bridge will lead you to our latest favourite bijou fashion, bag and accessory designers… Enjoy!By Myself Handcrafted in Warehouse 5 is exactly the sort of store that Bangkok excels at – a small, under-the-radar brand with quality, handmade leather goods that range from hand-dyed and stitched Australian saddle belts, watch straps, comfy sandals and decorative cuffs, as well as passport holders, recycled canvas totes, and a neat line of personalised brass tags – perfect for keyrings or Fido! At Ele in Warehouse 8 you’ll find a great range of embossed leather and colourful, printed canvas handbags, shoulder bags, laptop covers and wallets, plus a nifty selection of padded leather keyrings, and while at Warehouse 8 be sure to drop in on Magnifique et Moi with its swish range of floaty, retro-inspired galwear with everything from 20s-style sunhats to summer print dresses.
