A first time visit to Bangkok isn’t complete without a dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya, and Princess Cruise is a luxury boat, featuring several decks, that offers daily two hour dinner cruises along the atmospheric Chao Phraya. The cruise heads upriver, passing iconic spots like Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn), the Grand Palace, and the Rama 8 Bridge, while guests get to feast on large international and Thai buffets. Additionally, live bands play dance music, and the staff promote a good cheerful time for everyone.
While it can be a bit cheesy at times, and while the food certainly is not known as being the best that Bangkok has to offer, this shouldn’t detract from the star of the show, which is the river at night, with all the buildings lit up around it. If you are here during holiday times, you may get to see fireworks along the Chao Phraya as part of your tour.
