The Asiatique night market is amazing. Easy to get to from Sathorn pier (they have a free pick up and drop facility from there). The lines at the pier are really long but don't let that scare you...it barely takes 10 mins for a boat to come. The ride itself to Asiatique is 10 mins long. Nice place to catch the sunset while sipping on some wine at one of the many fancy restaurants. The shopping too is very affordable, cheaper then MBK and Sukhumvit for sure. And it is mostly visited by Bangkok residents, so you won't end up feeling like you are stuck in a tourist zone.
