A stylish new boat drifts into river cruise contention
inner cruises on the Chao Phraya River are such a touristy fixture that it’s hard to muster excitement for a new one. But the provenance of the Suppaniga Cruise, a brand-new and colourfully appointed 40-seat vessel, marks it out as something different. Brought to us by the same team behind the hit Thai restaurant Supanniga Eating Room, the boat offers a sixcourse sunset dinner cruise featuring the same authentic dishes found at them, plus glasses of Tattinger champagne. Late afternoon cocktail or champagne cruises are also available for those who just want to soak up views of the river over savoury nibbles and a couple of drinks. Speaking of which, the onboard bar, the result of a collaboration with the acclaimed Silom bar Vesper, is another highlight, rustling up signature drinks and classic cocktails, many of them reinterpreted with Thai herbs.
