Chao Phraya River Dinner Cruise

Chao Phraya River Cruise review Bangkok

After a relaxing couple of weeks in Koh Samui, Thailand for our honeymoon, Nick and I closed out the trip with a couple of days in Bangkok. In order to combine a romantic evening with some sightseeing, we decided to do a luxury dinner cruise down the Chao Phraya river. The cruise we were recommended to by our hotel picked us up and brought us to the dock in time to see the sun set across the river.

After the sun had (mostly) set, we boarded our cruise and started to head down the river. Dinner began relatively quickly after being seated, which was good because we came with an appetite! The food was good, with a lot of great selections. As we ate, we were able to check out the sights outside the boat and take some pictures. Of course, we weren't in too much of a hurry because we knew we would be doubling back and able to see everything again!

As dinner concluded, we headed up to the roof of the boat in order to enjoy our cocktails, the sights, and the band the boat had on board. Some of the sights that we saw included: Wat Pratum Khong Ka, Wat Kanlayanamrit, the Royal Thai Navy Headquarter Buildings, Wat Arun, Wat Pho, the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Keaw (the Emerald Buddha temple), Phra Sumen Fort and the Rama VIII Bridge. All in all, the dinner cruise was a great way to catch some sights, relax, and enjoy our last evening in Bangkok!
