Things to know before booking your Chao Phraya river cruise

Unfamiliar with the Bangkok river cruise scene? Don't worry! Here are a few things to consider that’ll help you choose the perfect adventure for yourself:

  • Choosing between a sunset and dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya River depends on your priorities. For a quick sightseeing experience and stunning sunsets at an affordable price, opt for a sunset cruise. For a full evening experience with dining and entertainment, choose a dinner cruise.

  • Deciding on your boarding point depends on your preferences beyond the cruise itself. Consider your pre or post-cruise plans - nightlife, history, or shopping - to pick the perfect pier. Rama 3 lets you enjoy the Rama VII bridge up close. For a historical ambiance, choose River City near Wat Pho. Craving nightlife? Head to Asiatique and luxurious shopping awaits at ICONSIAM.

  • There's a cruise for every budget. Budget sunset cruises start at ฿650. Families can enjoy mid-range options (฿899+) with buffets and entertainment. Celebrate special moments in style with luxurious cruises (฿1,400+) featuring fine dining.

  • Cruise meals cater to diverse preferences. Some cruises offer a variety of cuisines mostly ranging between Thai, international, Indian, or seafood options. Before booking check the menus of your cruise choice. Luxury cruises offer multi-course meals. If you're looking to sip your favorite tipple on board, choose a cruise with unlimited alcohol servings.

  • The best time to go on a cruise depends on what you'd want the highlight of your cruise to be. For unforgettable sunsets, choose sunset cruises between 5pm and 7pm. If you're looking for night views of Bangkok, Dinner cruises starting from 7pm onwards would be the best time to see the city light up. Choose weekdays if you want smaller crowds.
