From US$90.68
Take a dinner cruise in Bangkok on the traditional Thai vessel Apsara for dinner with a view of glowing temples and other riverside sights. During the 2-hour tour, you’ll glide along the Chao Phraya River, passing illuminated monuments, such as the Temple of Dawn and the Grand Palace. Dine on a 4-course meal with flavorful curries, soups, and desserts that represent the best of Thailand’s famous cuisine.
What to Expect
Make your own way to the dock on the Chao Phraya River to board your boat for your dinner cruise. The 2-hour culinary journey takes place aboard a traditional Thai-style riverboat with an elegant dining room.

Lovely experience

This dinner cruise was smaller in size compared to some of the other large river cruise liners, but it made for a much for peaceful and intimate experience. Service was great, food was excellent, boat was beautiful. Choose this river cruise.
