An exciting cruise along Chao Phraya River in Bangkok is one of the many highlights of a trip to Thailand. Usually, it consists of two-hour journey in a modern cruiser or in a reconverted rice barge. The leisurely ride normally includes a dinner buffet consisting of Thai and international dishes with a live band to provide musical entertainment. You can also have a good time drinking beer, liquor or a refreshing fruit juice punch with your friends while enjoying the breezy atmosphere and watching the many skyscrapers being illuminated at night.
Chao Phraya River cruise is the best way to see some of the iconic symbols of the country such as the Grand Palace, temples like Wat Arun and Wat Pho, Sta. Cruz Church and now IconSiam – the largest shopping center in Thailand together with Magnolia Residences – the tallest buiding.
