Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Likely To Sell Out
Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Enjoy Bangkok at night on a 2.5-hour dinner cruise along the Chao Phraya River.

Cruise on a luxurious riverboat that will take you on a leisurely ride along the Chao Phraya River.

Settle into a seat in the boat’s comfortable, warmly furnished dining room, or watch the brightly lit Bangkok skyline glide by from the deck.

Cruise slowly along the river, passing under bridges and right in front of two of Bangkok’s most famous riverfront landmarks — the Temple of Dawn, known as Wat Arun, a Buddhist temple that dates back to the 17th century, and the Grand Palace, the official residence of the King of Thailand (and historically the King of Siam) since the late 1700s.

When you’re ready to eat, head to the large buffet of Thai dishes and desserts. Your meal is accompanied by a live band and other local entertainers.
  • See key Bangkok landmarks from the water
  • Great way to try a variety of Thai dishes
  • Live music for a special night in the heart of Bangkok
  • Convenient option: pickup and drop-off at central Bangkok hotels
What to Expect
Meet your driver at your hotel in central Bangkok (if option selected), or make your way to a pier on the bustling Chao Phraya waterfront. Board a riverboat that’s equipped with a comfortable dining room and open viewing decks, and watch the city lights slide by as you pull into the gentle current of the Chao Phraya River. Entertainers kick off the night with live music and performances, but there’s plenty to see at the edge of the river, including the Temple of Dawn, which is beautifully lit after dark. Spot the swooping, traditional rooflines of the Grand Palace, then head to the buffet to sample an array of Thai dishes and sweets. After an evening of music, Thai cuisine, and entertainment, this evening concludes at your original departure point.

I was excited to be able to see the sites of Bangkok by evening on the river. And while it was nice to be on the cruise ship and see the Grand Palace and Wat Arun, it was hard to see them unless we were standing out on the deck, which was crowded, and the only place for smokers

This tour was quite poor, especially as a lot is promised from the description. In reality, from our experience, it was poorly organised, with only ONE vegetarian option in the buffet and the on board entertainment was underwhelming. Pretty disappointing experience.
