The heart of Bangkok is its main waterway, the Chao Phraya river. There are many spots where you can start your adventure along the river. No matter which trip you choose—a dinner cruise or a romantic night cruise - it will be an excellent way to enjoy stunning views of the city and its iconic landmarks like Wat Arun, Wat Pho, Wat Phra Kaew, the Grand Palace, and others. Expect different luxurious bonuses and activities onboard like live performances, beautiful classical music, and delicious Thai drinks and snacks. The boats look very elegant and modern, which brings out the real Thai charm and atmosphere.

The best time to take a boat cruise is during the dry season from November to May. During the rainy season, some boat cruises won't be available due to bad weather conditions. If you're planning on trying a boat cruise in Bangkok from November to February, you'll catch prime weather conditions, but remember that it's peak tourist season with much higher prices. Expect temperatures to soar from March to May. Fortunately, boat cruises are an excellent option for avoiding the heat and spending a relaxing time in Bangkok.
