Take a Boat Cruise Around Bangkok
Bangkok can offer you many amazing sights, people, music, food and much more. But one thing we think is absolutely exceptional is the ability to see many of the best sights in Bangkok from a river cruise with a date or partner. The best thing about river cruises in Bangkok is that they are all relatively cheap and will always give you enough time to have dinner and enjoy a bottle of wine. So here are my top 5 thrilling Bangkok boat cruises.
