What You Can Expect

Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Enjoy fine Thai food on the Bangkok Dinner Cruise

Start your Chao Phraya River cruise with hotel pickup in central Bangkok. Your guide drives you to the waterfront and accompanies you aboard a luxurious riverboat for a leisurely dinner cruise on this major waterway.
Find a seat in the warmly furnished dining room, or head out to the deck to see the illuminated Bangkok skyline slip past. As the boat drifts along, your guide points out top landmarks lining the banks of the Chao Phraya; admire the 17th-century Temple of Dawn, known as Wat Arun, and see Bangkok’s famous Grand Palace — even more dazzling when lit up at night.
Treat yourself to the large buffet of Thai dishes and desserts, then settle down for dinner while you listen to a live band and other entertainers. 
After disembarking the boat, complete your 2.5- to 3-hour excursion with return transport to your central hotel.

This was a good experience.

We were fetched on time by our transport. We arrived a bit early at the port 1.5 hours but this gave us some time to explore.

At the start of the cruise we requested to sit on the top deck. Our request was forgotten and we were so glad that it was. Our floor turned out to be filled with such vibrant people and we ended up having a culture experience that will not be forgotten. South Africans, Indians, Filipinos and Thais, all gathered together and danced the night away!!

It was my birthday, and I was given a cake and Happy Birthday was sung. It was so special.

The food was delicious and the staff was very nice.

Definitely a must do while in Bangkok.!

We were pick up on time which was a good start, the cruise was well organised with your seating already planed and allocated to you when you boarded the river boat. Food, entertainment and staff were all very good, all in all my wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, this trip is great value for money would certainly recommend to anyone. .

Great tour and dinner was very nice, though the buffet was nice, there was no order in getting one's food, everyone was invited at once and it was hard to get anything as everyone was cutting the line, it was more a feeding frenzy!

Very nice way to taste almost all Thai Cusine, while cruising and watching the city and buildings along the river at night.

Excellent way to take in the some of the beautiful sites of Old Bangkok without the hustle and bustle of this frenetic city. Recommend this as a must-do for first time visitors. I would do this again.
