Moonlight Dining, Floating on the Chao Phraya River – The Best Way to Experience the River of Kings

The sprawling capital that is Bangkok has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia. It is famous as much for its gilded shrines and majestic temples as it is for its shopping malls, markets and party till dawn nightlife. If you are looking for an apartment hotel, Bangkok has plenty, right in the heart of the city. Amidst the leafy parks and top notch restaurants you will find Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites, which caters to business and leisure travellers alike.


There is an endless number of things you can see and do in this dynamic city. Start at the Chao Phraya River. The mighty river has taken centre stage in Bangkok throughout history. Early settlers were drawn to its fertile banks to set down roots. Many years later, King Rama I founded the Bangkok we know today around the very same river. It was even nicknamed ‘The River of Kings’. Today, it continues to play significant role in city life.


To appreciate the wonders of the river, try a leisurely moonlit dinner cruise. You will be treated to mesmerising views of The Grand Palace, The Temple of the Dawn known as Wat Arun, and a number of other shrines that are glow brightly from the shores. You will be served dinner at the highest level of Thai hospitality aboard an elegantly converted old rice barge. The old world setting is complete with waiters dressed in traditional costume, serving you the finest of Thai cuisine. Enjoy uninterrupted views across the water as you sip a glass of wine, which has been perfectly paired with each course. Your meal will end with a traditional Thai sweet dish, like mango and sticky rice as you sail under the impressive Rama Eight Suspension Bridge.
