Sorry - the tour starts and ends at River City Pier. It’s not possible to emberk/disembark at any other location. Food (buffet) is included but liquor is not.

Chao Phraya Princess Dinner Cruise (5 Replies)
Has anyone recently done the Chao Phraya Princess Dinner Cruise? We would like to do a dinner cruise and liked the look of this one on their website, but I can't find any recent reviews. I know the Loy Nava one is popular, however we were interested in a buffet style dinner.

Hi there, I was so focused on being up and taking photos that I didn't even eat half of what was put in front of me. You might find that because of sensory overload the food itself doesn't play as big a role in the cruise as you think. Not knowing much about the cruise operator in question but knowing that amount of traffic on the river and resulting mild chop from time to time...I assume this is a larger boat. I actually enjoyed the intimate group setting Loy Nava offers. There were...More

Hi HNasional and welcome to Trip Advisor. You've certainly done a lot of research and worked out an itinerary to suit your interests. Great. This plan would be a bit too hectic for me as it doesn't give you much time to relax and actually enjoy the holiday, but if that's your travel style, go for it. I've never been to Khao Taliap Beach so don't know how far away from your accommodation it is. Don't know how you'd fit it in anyway as each day looks to be packed with activities.
