This Bangkok dinner cruise was definitely memorable, to say the least.
The confusion was soon cleared up, as the staff in the tour office confirmed our table number and we were ushered through to the mall, where we were greeted with scented flower corsages, and invited to browse and shop until departure time. The back of the mall led to the docks and we were shown the exact doors that led to our boat.
Before the tour concluded, there was one more dance experience for us to enjoy. The staff all got up and did a line dance to Achy Breaky Heart! It was the last thing on earth we were expecting and we were both in stitches watching it. See the fun and merriment for yourself:
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wanted to experience Thai cuisine or wanted a more guided, structured sightseeing experience. Prices start from $48.51 US and I think prospective travelers have to ask themselves if this is a fair value for an entertaining river cruise. For me personally the price is a bit high considering the quality of the food provided. I think this experience would be best for someone who had a limited amount of time in Bangkok and was looking for a fun and memorable way to spend a free evening.
