“great concept and mediocre presentation”
Reviewed March 24, 2010

had the occasion to experience a night time cruise on the chao praya river in bangkok.
reservation was flawless from the US.
our first night out in bangkok we were eager with anticipation to have a relaxing, romantic dinner cruise. the converted river barge was well appointed and the ambience was perfect.
unfortunately it all went downhill from then on. we were picked up from the pier at the shangri la hotel where we were staying and were hustled to our table. the drink and food started arriving at our table before we could even appreciate the environment we were in. the barge sped on past the beautifully lit up palace and temple landmarks along the river with a hurried , poorly narrated brief description of the landmark we were passing by. the least we expected was a slowing down of the barge so we could appreciate the site while a well presented narrative was given to us. the operative modus operandi of this cruise seems to be --"get them in, feed them and sent them packing in a coupla hours"
--and the food is extremely mediocre. the service distinguished by being totally devoid of the hospitality that thais are famous for.
in conclusion ---give this cruise a wide miss! sadly, it can be such a wonderful experience if the service was lengthened by an hour and the pace and presentation was slower paced.
