Fine dining on board the most sophisticated barge to sail the Chao Phraya. Duration of tour: 2 hours
There are larger and sleeker modern yachts cruising the Chao Phraya River, but for true Siamese elegance and classic Thai cuisine, few can match the restored Rice Barges of the Manohra fleet. Formerly these vessels transported cargoes of rice harvested from the fields of the Central Plains. Following restoration they now carry diners past the illuminated landmarks near the riverside. These include the distinctive 'prang' of Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn, the glittering rooftiles of the Grand Palace and the cable-stayed Rama VIII Bridge. Tempting dishes feature on the menu that changes every three days and may include the tongue-tingling flavour explosions of an old Thai snack known as 'Mieng Kham', classic 'Tom Yam Goong' spicy lemongrass-infused shrimp soup, rich green curry of duck, Phuket lobster and devilishly good fresh mango served with sticky rice doused in coconut milk.
