The dinner cruise offers two dinner services, buffet or a la carte. We opted for the a la carte and sat inside because we didn't trust the weather (you can always go upstairs on deck after you have eaten anyway). Both services are excellent value.
The food is good as well. Here above you can see we had a little chicken satay mix, some pork with garlic and black pepper, my signature Thai omelette which I have immediately with everything these days, some lager, and a fair bit of other stuff still on its way (Sutiya recommends all the fishy type stuff).
But the best bit about the cruise is the sight seeing upstairs on deck. You go up a rather plush looking staircase and find yourself a seat outside. Keen Thai language learners can practice their listening skills whilst somebody talks quietly over a microphone about the various landmarks that you pass by. Drunk heads like me can have a good drink, and everyone can just relax with the cool, Bangkok evening breeze......
It's a very nice, worthwhile and pleasant evening with your better halves, friends and relatives. Many of the buildings along the river are lit up really beautifully, and those familiar with Bangkok get a chance to test their Bangkok knowledge.
Which leads me on nicely to another Bangkok challenge.
Who was the reigning Thai King responsible for the construction of the well known Bangkok landmark in the picture above? The winner gets a scrummy prize, and forever celebrated on the Pirate Prizes side bar.
