Dinner cruise on board the Apsara
Dinner cruise on board
The lights and sounds of Bangkok give the Thai capital a brand-new persona when gently sailing
aboard one of the leading dinner cruises on the Chao Phraya River. Impeccable service
standards and an amazing dining experience, only a 5* cruise can deliver.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Fine dining in a romantic setting is not only limited on Bangkok’s mainland. The country’s long tradition with water-based transport and building durable barges have merged together with culinary creativity in creating dining cruises of extraordinary standards.
One of these examples that sail up and down the Chao Phraya is The Apsara, a beautifully appointed river boat, operated and managed by one of Bangkok’s leading hotels. Although the rice barge is around 120 years old, it has been renovated into a classy floating dining room, an intimate space that can cater for up to 64 people, making it also one of the more intimate dinner cruises in Bangkok.
20:00 - 22:15

Those guests opting for a joined tour, transfers from and to the River City Cruise pier are not included. Note that the dinner cruise starts at 8pm and we recommend arriving at the River City River Cruise terminal at least 30 minutes prior to departure.
While sailing away, shimmering temples, glistening skyscrapers and a rich stream of 24/7 passing traffic will greet you from every direction – perfect moments to see Bangkok from another perspective. Onboard English-speaking assistance will point out the various landmarks that are visible from the comfort of your chair. Recommend to pause for a moment from your served dinner to take pictures and enjoy the evening atmosphere.
Traditionally-dressed staff will serve you a variety of Thai delicacies ranging from curries, seafood and soups that will tantalize your taste buds from starter to dessert. The menu on board is adaptable for those customers with certain allergies or specific food preferences. Complimenting with your dinner, a well-stocked bar completes a romantic dining event.
Even if you have visited Bangkok before there is something remarkable about seeing the famous temples, life along the river and been to the Grand Palace, a dinner cruise will always add new experiences to every Bangkok visitors. This trip along the river takes you away from the commotion of the city to enjoy Bangkok by night as you enjoy a five-star feast, and it really is a magical experience.
