Going on a Chao Phraya River cruise is romantic in and of itself, but add to the mix some of Bangkok's best cuisine, accompanied by sunset cocktails, and it gets about as amorous as you're going to find here in the Big Mango. Run by the Laorauvirodge family, who operates Supanniga Eating Room, a charming Thai eatery with traditional recipes (that now boasts two branches), along with the Michelin-starred New York Thai restaurant Somtum Der, the dinner cruise picks up with the same knockout cuisine that has made the restaurants so famous, serving up fresh giant prawns, along with the Supanniga staple, moo chamuang, a thick pork stew made with flavourful chamuang leaves, a specialty of Trat on the Eastern seaboard. Other items included in the sumptuous six course feast include hor mok puu steamed crab in curry paste, and mangoes with sticky rice. Supanniga has also teamed up with Vesper, one of the city's best cocktail spots, for some outstanding signature drinks. You can choose a sunset cruise with cocktails or champagne served with savouries, which lasts an hour, or go for the six course meal and champagne dinner set, which goes for two hours. The combination of cuisine, locale, and presentation make this one of Bangkok's most romantic options.
- Romantic Things to Do, Things to Do in December: "Cocktail cruises start at 4:45pm, while dinner cruises start at 6:15. Give yourself enough time to get to the River City pier if coming to the latter, as there can be rush hour traffic. It's best to take the ferry from Saphan Taksin to access River City."
