Loy Nava Rice Barge Dinner Cruise


Board the elegantly restored Loy Nava Luxury rice barge for a dinner 
cruise along Bangkok’s vibrant Chao Phraya, the ‘River of Kings.’ Cast
off from the River City pier as you don a jasmine-blossom garland and 
nibble canapés, then enjoy a sumptuous Thai meal on the golden teakwood
deck. Watch the tropical sun set over the city skyline and take in the
view of Bangkok’s spectacular monuments as they light up after dark.
The River of Kings. The River of Kings. Drifting along the most historic section of the Chao Phraya River you pass en route such magnificent landmarks as the Temple of Dawn, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Grand Palace and the display of the royal barges. You will see some of the oldest buildings in Bangkok, including some dating to the earliest Portuguese settlements in the capital. Experience the bustle of river traffic and commerce in this vital artery that separates the old capital from the new.

Several non-intrusive short sets of Thai classical dancing are interspersed through the meal.

Every guest receives an illustrated map & history booklet of the river.
