Bangkok Loy Nava Cruise Review

Bangkok Dinner Cruise Reviews

Tahsaneeya is a converted antique teak wood rice barge, exuding splendour and authenticity all around her. The moment you step onboard, you will be welcomed by one of Loynava's traditionally attired hostesses who will greet you with a customary 'wai' (Thai greeting), accompanied with a sweet-smelling garland and a sprinkle of rose-water - a truly Thai way to show respect to someone.

A feast on the river

If you're feeling famished, help yourself with the already-on-your-table-appetizers; a few skewers of 'moo satay' (pork grilled in curry power with peanut sauce) and a large amount of prawn cracker. A glass of tasty fruit punch is then served, followed by a few more hors d'oeuvres.

Try not to stuff yourself; you don't want to be full before the main course arrives. A select range of red, white and ros- wines are also available to accompany your main meal, as well as house wine (by the glass or carafe).

It's not long before you will see a parade of mouth-watering dishes being delivered at the table. As part of this six-course dinner, there are three different set menus to choose from; Thai Traditional, Thai Seafood and Thai Vegetarian. The Thai Traditional and Thai Seafood are probably the most popular combination. It includes sizable grilled shrimps and mussels.

Bathing them in Thai-style seafood dipping sauce to enhance the flavour is recommended (although the sauce is mild, make sure you taste it first as you wouldn't want to burn your mouth!). Chicken green curry and 'Tom Yum Goong' (spicy prawn soup) are a must too. It's not overly spicy but loaded with enough zest and flavour to keep you wanting more. Other dishes are equally palatable and you'll just have to try them all.

A journey reminiscent of the past

During the candle-lit dinner and a serene cruise along the River of Kings, traditional 'khim' music (Thai xylophone) is played gently in the background and several non-intrusive short sets of Thai classical dancing are interspersed throughout the journey. You will be transported back in time.

The vistas on the banks of the Chao Praya River are almost surreal. The illuminated Grand Palace, Temple of the Emerald Buddha and Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) stand in defiance against the twilight sky. Don't worry if you don't know what's what because a beautiful map is handed to guests prior to departure.

As the barge approaches Sri Phraya Pier, a delightful platter of traditional Thai desserts and fresh fruit is served to conclude the meal, followed by coffee or tea. If you want something a little stronger, a digestif and a choice of Havana cigars may be selected from the after-dinner drinks trolley to complete this unforgettable dining experience.
