Enjoy Bangkok at night on a 2.5-hour dinner cruise along the Chao Phraya River. See two of the city’s top attractions — the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and the Grand Palace — illuminated after dark, and feast on a variety of Thai dishes. An onboard band provides musical entertainment.
After hotel pickup in central Bangkok (if chosen) head to the waterfront to board the luxurious riverboat that will take you on a leisurely ride along the Chao Phraya River, a major Thai river that flows from the city into the Gulf of Thailand. Once you’ve boarded, 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. Your evening ends at River City Pier where you boarded the boat or transfer back to your Hotel if chosen.
