Suggestion for Bangkok dinner cruises 
There are 2 types of cruises

  • 2 Decks Cruise - The first floor is an air-conditioned room and the second floor is an open-air area under the roof. Only the front deck which is an open area.
  • 3 Decks Cruise - It's a larger-sized boat and can serve more guests. The first and second floors are air-conditioned rooms. The front deck on the second floor and third floor are open rooftop areas. 

We recommend choosing outdoor rooftop seats or the front deck seats on the 2nd floor to get the best wide-angle view of the river. For those who prefer the airconditioned room, you can enjoy the view as well from the large window.
