We visited Asiatique on Friday 30th April at about 10 PM and visited a Japanese lifestyle shop, selling various products for the home. While in the shop my wife purse was stolen by the below two people as taken from the shop surveillance system. Apparently, this type of crime is now endemic at Asiatique with multiple crimes taking place daily. The shop were very helpful in providing the surveillance footage and my wife is well connected with the police and TV, we had the footage shown on Bangkok TV. She also visited the security office and they complained that many of the CTV cameras didn't work or were not well placed with no memory cards to suitably record activities. This is worrying especially if a terrorist activity happened like at the Erawan Temple, it's not just about petty crime tourists need to feel safe.
We used to visit Asiatique twice a year when visiting Bangkok, we WONT be going again with such high level of pick pocket/crime activity. The owners and managers should increase security as they have a serious problem on their hands, some people may read this and be put off which is a shame as it has been a place of great pleasure for us, and YES we will be telling all our friends too in Hong Kong and China. Your business will be effected and you will loose revenue..,FIX THIS CRIME WAVE NOW.
