Last week, Group Product Director Julien Monnerie tested the evening Champagne two hour Supanniga cruise in Bangkok, and commented of the experience, “It is great!” So with such as wide range of river cruise options available in Bangkok, what makes this one so good? Firstly, there are only 40 seats on the boat, so guests feel the service is more ‘privatized’. Then there’s a wide selection of authentic food served across six delicious courses, many of these dishes you will not find served in mainstream restaurants or on the streets. The background music is played at a peaceful level unlike many of the mainstream boats you see (and hear), cruising up and down the Chao Phraya. Decoration also plays an important role. The furniture, lighting and even the colors of the cushions have selected as part of an overall color scheme that really works well.
And last but not least, the journey reveals Bangkok’s culture and heritage. We are able to see throughout the cruise many key attractions such as the ancient Wat Arun, Grand Palace, Bangkok’s first bank, a number of embassies, iconic hotels (Shangri La, Peninsula, Hilton, Riva Arun…) as well as ongoing projects like the vast Icon Siam shopping mall that is planned to open in 2018.
