Dinner Cruise – River Side Hotel

By Wilbur Suen

The Chao Phraya River in the day time may not seem beautiful to you, but it turns into a beautiful sight at night. Bridges and temples are lit up. To enjoy the breathtaking and magnificent scenery all at once, the best way is to take the Dinner Cruise. Delicious Dinner + Beautiful Scenery = Awesome!

There are approximately 8 dinner cruises targeting tourists and their price starts from 1700 Baht. Want to join the rest of the tourists on a dinner cruise, go ahead and take the famous Dinner Cruise by Chao Phraya Cruises, which comes with International Buffet.

The one I’m recommending is mainly catered to locals. Hence when on board, expect to see lots of locals and fewee tourists. This is the two-decked cruise. The lower deck is air conditioned with a live thai band and the upper deck has an alfresco setting. Food offered here is ala carte style serving Thai, Chinese and European dishes.

The journey begins from River Side Hotel at 8pm and heads to Rama 9 Bridge. Throughout the journey, expect beautiful sights from Krung Thon Bridge, the magnificent Rama 8 Bridge, Phra Sumen Fort, Pinklao Bridge, Grand Palace, Wat Arun Rajwararam pagoda, Sathorn Bridge and Rama 9 Bridge. The cruise then makes a roundabout and arrives back to hotel at 10:30pm.

It is truly a magnificent sight and will provide you with unforgettable memories.

Do note that you have to make a reservation beforehand to state your choice of either eating at the upper or lower deck. Arrive early at around 7pm as the cruise will depart at 8pm. The cons of this cruise is that the hotel is not located at a central location and some taxi drivers are unsure of the location. Hence, leave your hotel early or call them to arrange for a pickup.

Price: 120 Baht Admission Fee + Ala Carte Dinner
