We arrived at “River City” before we started the Apsara cruise and wondered around for what seemed like an eternity. I have to admit that there is not a great deal worth looking at unless you are after sculptures and antique style stuff. The cruise went along the Chao Phraya River. The dinner was lovely! There were 5 courses of Thai food, we were absolutely stuff afterwards!
While we went along the river eating our dinner, there was an audio commentary about our surroundings and a little bit of history for each place e pasted by. It was very interesting.
We stopped for some photos at the King Rama VIII Bridge (this is where we turned around too). The bridge is named after the eighth monarch of the Chakri dynasty, King Ananda Mahidol.
We stopped outside the the “Grand Palace” this is the King (Bhumibol Adulyadej – Rama IX) residence to take photos, it is a beautiful sight at night. We haven’t been there during the day yet, maybe we will on our next trip to Bangkok.
The Apsara dinner cruise on the river Chao Phraya was the best way to end our night!

Hi. Thanks for the info about Apsara River Dinner Cruise. I’m going to Bangkok by the end of this month. After reading your blog, I’m sure to have my dinner here. By the way, do you still remember how much does it cost to have a dinner on the cruise? Anyway, thanks a lot.
Thank for your comment!
Aspara through Bangkok.com is 2,200 Baht per person, its a little pricing but in my opinion worth it!
Otherwise maybe contact them directly.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you so much.. ^.^
I have another questions. It’s actually my first time travelling to Thailand. I’ll be going to Bangkok for 7 days. Do you know roughly how much do we need to spent on food for the 7 days in Bangkok? Because I don’t really know how much do I need to prepare.
It depends really.. will you be treating yourself to hotel and fancy dinners or dinning on street foods?
To be honest we didnt eat as much as we thought as it was so hot at times, we didnt have much of an appetite.
Will you be staying at a hotel or hostel? is breakfast included? Some hotels offer club access with provides breakfast, High Tea and evening canapés, saved us heaps on food! We made sure to experience Thai food and street food when we went out.
