Wan Fah Dinner Cruise

As soon as I got back from Hard Rock Bangkok, I had to get ready for the "Wan Fah Dinner Cruise" at 7pm.

The day before, we booked a reservation for "Wan Fah Dinner Cruise" through the travel agency in front Boiyoke Sky Hotel. By 6pm we go into van with other tourists and headed to Rivercity Pier 1, one of piers at Chao Phraya River. Riverbird was so excited because he will be having dinner on an antique boat while crusing along "The River of Kings"

After 30mins, finally we arrived at RiverCity Pier 1.
