Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Select Date and Travellers
USD 32.91
2 travellers
See Bangkok’s city lights and glowing temples on a Chao Phraya dinner cruise past the gorgeous Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and the Grand Palace. Taste a wide range of Thai dishes and desserts from a traditional buffet, with live music and entertainment to keep the evening lively. For your convenience, this Chrao Phraya dinner cruise offers the option of round-trip hotel transfers for a hassle-free night out in Bangkok.
  • 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 river boat 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 will 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.
