White Orchid River Cruise

Exploring Bangkok’s Illuminated Skyline on the White Orchid River Cruise

White Orchid River Cruise:  Sailing through Bangkok’s shining city lights on the fancy White Orchid cruise ship. An unforgettable night of delicious food, live shows, and stunning views along the Chao Phraya River. 

The perfect thing to do at night in Bangkok is to take a boat ride on the Chao Phraya River. When the sun goes down, you can cruise along the riverbanks and see the city lights shining bright.

Buildings and temples along the Chao Phraya River look beautiful –  all lit up against the dark sky. A nighttime boat trip lets you see Bangkok’s pretty sights from the peaceful river. It’s a fun and easy way to enjoy the city’s nighttime beauty.

If a relaxing dinner onboard a ship is your thing, you should take the White Orchid River Cruise on the famous Chao Phraya River. The dinner cruise lets you eat a nice meal while taking in the lovely night views from the boat.

The dinner buffet offered a fantastic selection of both Thai and international cuisine with fresh seafood, aromatic curries, stir-fries, pasta, salads, decadent desserts and fresh fruits.  Beverages and beers were overflowing too.

The food was constantly refilled so we could indulge in as many courses as we wished while taking in the beautiful views and listening to the singer.

The upper deck of the ship allows you to see the entire Chao Phraya River from all directions. From there, you can admire the lovely river and the impressive buildings along the riverbanks.

Moreover, you can go up to the roof deck and enjoy grilled shrimp, scallops, and other seafood. Plus, you can see a 360 degree view of the riverbank from there.

Live Entertainment

Besides the all-you-can-eat dinner, the singer’s fun show amazed us. The singer made sure the audience joined in to make the show more exciting.  We spent some time on the deck drinking, listening to music, and feeling the nice cool air from the river.

The White Orchid River Cruise gave us an amazing luxury experience. It had great food, live shows and beautiful Bangkok skyline. It was the perfect way to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and experience the magic of Bangkok at night.
