New Evening Cruise Option on Chao Phraya River

September 9, 2010 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under:

A new colonial-style dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok provides great taste as well as cultural and historical views.

 

The Song Fang Klong, a new colonial style cruise vessel twin-deck boat, departs from the conveniently located Kinlom Chom Saphan riverside restaurant on the Chao Phraya river, near the Banglumpoo area of Bangkok.  The restaurant location and the cruise itinerary makes all the major temple sites of the “river of kings” accessible.

The cruise starts every day at Kinlom Chom Saphan restaurant at 8pm and takes approximately two hours. The menu on board offers a wide variety of Thai dishes, with plenty of choices tempered for overseas palates.

Enjoy dinner while you cruise past magnificent temples on the Chao Phraya river such as Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). Guests can also see old forts, colonial era wharfs, The Oriental Hotel and the lively river scene, which is always a hive of activity, day or night. The atmosphere on board is enhanced by pleasant but unobtrusive background live music.

Khiri Travel can supply menus and take bookings.

For those who stay in the Banglumpoo area of Bangkok there is a complimentary tuk tuk transfer service from Buddy Lodge hotel and Hotel De Moc, departing daily at 7.30pm. After the cruise, guests make their own arrangements to return to the hotel.
