A Regal River
The mighty Chao Phraya River is THE place for a captivating cruise in Bangkok. Referred to as the “River of Kings”, it flows through the capital and is where one can witness daily life, local culture, ancient temples and contemporary landmarks, all part of the city’s identity.
There are several options when it comes to choosing a voyage along the river. While you do get boats for budget travellers, luxury vessels are on hand too, some with accommodation as well. Cruise operators the likes of Manohra Cruises also offer unique experiences including those on converted antique rice barges.
Part of the joy of a cruise in Bangkok is the chance to savour culinary delights as well, be it with the family, that special someone or a private gathering. From lunches to dinners, these dining experiences generally feature popular Thai dishes as well as western favourites and may even include fine wine too.
Of course, on your journey along the Chao Phraya River, you will also pass some key attractions in Bangkok including the stunning Wat Arun, Wat Pho and Grand Palace. On your expedition, you may also see the shopping hub known as ASIATIQUE The Riverfront, the historic Santa Cruz Church and Wat Rakhangkhositaram, a sacred temple.
