Dinner Cruises

Dinner Cruise Chao Phraya River
2011-09:  3kms South West of Siam Square

The experience of a river or canal in the day is not something that can be compared to the charm and romance of a evening cruise.

Typically the evening cruises are around two (2) hours. The main piers are busy from about 7pm with cruises departing at various points about every 15 minutes and the last of the cruise options departs around 8.30

The river dinner cruise covers passes such places as Pinklao Bridge Rama IX Bridge eight, the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Wat Phra Kaew and the Royal Navy Auditorium.

Most all vessels provide narration in English and Thai. There are a variety of cruise themes. 

The basic cruise
: ride only, fare price approx 300bt with option for buffet dinner approx 500bt, the optioned theme tends to be 3.5star such as the Yok Yor dinner cruise.

The Cultural cruise: "Wan Fah dinner crusie" has been servicing tourist for many years with their traditional teak wood vessels with seating for 70 to 130 passengers. The package is a set menu, narration of Icons along the river and at intervals fully costumed traditional Thai dances roll out down the middle of the boat, you can almost touch them (but don't), wait until your asked to join in, do try!  The price is approx 1200-1500bt

Luxury Cruise: There are quite a few modern medium to large size vessels offering similar 5 star luxury comforts, stunning buffet dinner, live music, some modern and others traditional, choice of seating (inside or out). The boats range from size of 150 to 300 passengers. The price approx 1400 - 1800bt.

Some packages are optioned for Hotel transfer, which usually means you need to be ready several hours before hand while they shuttle between Hotels, it' mean a slow transfer but think of it as it's a free observation tour.

The most popular location is Rivercity complex in Bang Rak, a 5 star tourism centre on the Chao Phraya river. The centre caters for high volume tourism, here you can be entertained with a cultural dance show, browse the arts and crafts shops and if your lucky catch a Muay Thai event, they are hosted at River city quite frequently.

Getting there: If your going to Rivercity .. from Siam take the BTS skytrain to station Saphan Taksin, which interchanges with the main river pier "Central" or Sathorn. Many venues have courtesy shuttle boats (including Rivercity, otherwise a brief taxi (1.5ms).  The MRT (subway) station Hua Lamphong is about 1km from Rivercity. 

Be cautioned, traffic can mean dissappointment, the boat can not wait so go early and enjoy the surroundings. The location is not far from the famous Skybar and other such wonderful nightspots.  The tour database page of transport stations can produce a list of attractions at any station, find the station you want and click.
