Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River
from £27.65
Enjoy Bangkok at night on a 2.5-hour dinner cruise along the Chao Phraya River.

Cruise on a luxurious riverboat that will take you on a leisurely ride along the Chao Phraya River.

Settle into a seat in the boat’s comfortable, warmly furnished dining room, or watch the brightly lit Bangkok skyline glide by from the deck.

Cruise slowly along the river, passing under bridges and right in front of two of Bangkok’s most famous riverfront landmarks — the Temple of Dawn, known as Wat Arun, a Buddhist temple that dates back to the 17th century, and the Grand Palace, the official residence of the King of Thailand (and historically the King of Siam) since the late 1700s.

When you’re ready to eat, head to the large buffet of Thai dishes and desserts. Your meal is accompanied by a live band and other local entertainers.

We had an awesome time on the dinner cruise. The driver came on time and in a very elegant van with plush seats. Two other couples joined us before we checked in for the cruise. It’s a very popular cruise and there are a few other yachts that use the same pier. Once we got on board, we found our seats - right by a window- which gave us amazing views all night.

This tour was super nice. The food was good and the staff was friendly. Make sure you text them via viator before and ask for seats to your liking. We wanted to set at the top deck and initially had other seats assigned but they were nice enough to put us up. If you sit downstairs you miss everythin

Although boarding at the Pier is a little crazy and disorganized, the cruise was very enjoyable. The food was delicious with great service al to enjoy while seeing the beautiful river sights. I also enjoyed the entertainment/shows on board. I would definitely do this again.

Superb cruise. Great views , delicious food and very good music and dance program

It was a dinner Cruise with so many beautiful sceneries and delicious dishes. AS there were many cruise ships provided by various companies, it was very confusing to understand which ship to board. I and two Scottish customers had to wait for approximately 1 hour before we embarked on the cruise in the crowded queue, but it was tolerable and allowable. Once you embark on the cruise, you would find a lot of dishes waiting for you. Also, the magnificent views of some illuminated temples are awesome and you can see them from both the dining hole and the viewing deck. While enjoying the beautiful sceneries, you can also have a concert with some beautiful drag queens' dances at the dining hole. To sum up, It was an awesome cruise for those who prefered some parties.

Loved the food and entertainment. Getting on the boat wasn’t as big an issue as some reviews make it sound. The tables were reserved so didn’t get a window seat but you can walk around and take pictures. Our hotel wasn’t on the pickup list but they picked us up for 100 baht per person which was fine

We went on this cruise on our first day in Bangkok, after a long hellish flight and no sleep, and it was well worth it. It was the perfect introduction to Bangkok. Booking this activity was easy. The operator confirmed our booking and hotel pickup. They were very professional and picked us up from our hotel on time. When we got to the peer we were given stickers and told to wait for our boat. There were hundreds of other people milling around also waiting for their boats. Some had similar stickers, some didn't and there were several different boats that came and went. It was a bit chaotic. We were a bit unclear as to how we would identify our boat. In the end there was no need to worry. The name of the boat matched the name on the sticker we were given. If that had been explained to us we would have been spared a few anxious moments. Boarding the ship was also a little chaotic as well, with a few people pushing and shoving with no regard for the stairs or the elderly who need a little extra time to navigate them. This I can't blame on the tour operator though, I would think it is just common decency to not push or shove and wait your turn. The boat is amazing and the view of Bangkok at night is breathtakingly beautiful. It is very romantic and just standing on the deck taking in the view is, in my opinion, the highlight of this excursion. If you are looking forward to the food and entertainment more than the views, you might be a little underwhelmed. The food was okay but not the best dining experience in Bangkok. The entertainers are very energetic and lively but at times not the best vocalist :- They try their best to get the crowd interested and I would give them 10 out of 10 for effort. It makes my list of top 10 things to do in Bangkok.

This was a lovely introduction to Bangkok. We did this event our first night there. They picked us up from our hotel and brought us to the location. Although somewhat crowded, we got onboard one of the many ships offering the cruise. The all you can eat buffet was great, the entertainment was fun, and the view of the harbor including all the temples lit up at night was beautiful.
