Bangkok- Chao Phraya River Cruise - May 2011

An evening cruise on the river Chao Phraya is one of the most popular excursions for tourists in Bangkok. The cool evening breeze, live bands, great food, a festive air and the stunning vistas of Bangkok make it a memorable experience, an absolute 'must see'. The cruise is best taken after sunset. The illumination of the major landmarks is breath taking and as I hinted above the weather is very pleasant.
