What to Expect
Meet your driver at your hotel in central Bangkok (if option selected), or make your way to a pier on the bustling Chao Phraya waterfront. Board a riverboat that’s equipped with a comfortable dining room and open viewing decks, and watch the city lights slide by as you pull into the gentle current of the Chao Phraya River. Entertainers kick off the night with live music and performances, but there’s plenty to see at the edge of the river, including the Temple of Dawn, which is beautifully lit after dark. Spot the swooping, traditional rooflines of the Grand Palace, then head to the buffet to sample an array of Thai dishes and sweets. After an evening of music, Thai cuisine, and entertainment, this evening concludes at your original departure point.

We were excited to see the temple at night and hope to get a calm and romantic evening because we saw on the postcard. We arrived at the pier but a bit confused of the check in because so many boats and different times. The buffet dinner looks good but when the time ready!!! OMG

This has probably been the worse experience someone could have whilst visiting bangkok. The directions are poor, not a single person understands English, no one wants to help and lastly no one replies on the emails or phone. I have sent numerous emails stating a refund for a

I was excited to be able to see the sites of Bangkok by evening on the river. And while it was nice to be on the cruise ship and see the Grand Palace and Wat Arun, it was hard to see them unless we were standing out on the deck, which was crowded, and the only place for smokers
