Have a relaxing time while enjoying delicious cuisines on a rice barge floating through the Chao Phraya river!
The Chao Phraya river, also known as “The River of Kings” is a major river in Thailand that streams through Bangkok and the Gulf of Thailand. The Chao Phraya river is made by four tributaries, which includes the Yom, Wang, Ping and Nan rivers that brings great importance to the local people of Thailand as it is deeply embedded in the everyday lives of the people, all the way from residing along the river to using the river as a way to go to-and-fro from work. The location of the Chao Phraya river provides the perfect spot to admire and take delight in both modern and historical architectures that are present all around Bangkok. At certain spots of the river, you may even behold the main attractions of Thailand, which includes Grand Palace, Temple of Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho), Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew).
You will have a chance to explore the vast expanse of the river on a refurbished rice barge that is made out of teak wood that were once utilized to transport rice from Central and North Thailand to the capital. The sights of boats and cruises streaming through the river and the sounds of the waves in constant motion creates a serene and relaxing ambiance under the dark sky. The movement of the barge through the wide stretched river as you pass the illuminated buildings creates a beautiful backdrop for your pictures! During the barge ride, you may have a taste of a wide array of both Indian and Thai cuisines and have a relaxing time while listening to the live performance by an Indian modern-style singer.
