Dance-and-dine cruises in Bangkok's Chao Phraya River are a craze among tourists
For tourists, travellers and visitors to Bangkok – the capital city of Thailand that never sleeps – luxury dinner cruises are a main attraction.

I along with the other three tourists from India enjoyed this unique experience at the river that runs through the city on the night of May 2.

The cruise was well decorated with neon and festival lights. Most of the lower deck of the cruise was filled with tourists from South Asia including a sizable number of Indians. The scene was a bit noisy and loud.

When the dinner cruise ship docked, there was a welcome song and Thai dance to usher in the guests. Once everyone got settled with soft and hard drinks from the bar, there was special welcome for the honeymooners and birthday celebrants. The mistress of ceremony announced the names and placed candles and cakes on such tables and good wishes were extended to the celebrants.

During the dinner cruise, the ship journeys through both the banks of the Chao Phraya River in the to-and-fro journey. We could see the houses, buildings, shopping complexes, temples lit-up along the banks of the river and clicked photographs and selfies.

After the dinner, hit Indian film songs and Punjabi pop music was played for the guests to join in dance and enjoy the cool tropical breeze in low electric lights and a romantic candlelight ambience. The experience of dine, wine and dance surrounded by glistening skyscrapers and streaming vehicular lights along the river bank roads was a memorable experience.
