Aspara's Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

There's nothing like a leisurely boat ride down the Chao Phraya River and we had a truly unforgettable experience at Apsara, Banyan Tree’s dinner cruise. The luxurius dinner boat offers a one of a kind dining experience where you are treated to an intimate and elegant meal while cruising down Bangkok’s iconic Chao Phraya River. The boat is constructed from a vintage rice barge and gives the ideal romantic and nostalgic feel. There are only a limited number of seats which means every table has a perfect view of the many sights during the cruise. Glimpse Bangkok's riverside temples and landmarks lit against the inky night sky and delve into a decadent feast. The dinner is comprised of authentic Thai cuisine and served in courses to your table giving you a date night to remember.

We recommend their 4 Regions of Thailand Set Menu which included appetizers of Chicken Satay, A Royal Leaf Wrap, Thai Isaan Style Sausages, Phuket Style Spicy Baegu Salad with Dried Shrimp, and Thai Spicy Grilled Pork Soup with Sweet Basil Leaves.

The main courses included Egg Noodle with Chicken Curry Chiang Mai Style, Crab Dip with Fresh and Boiled Vegetables, Stir-fried Crispy Tiger Prawns with Spicy Southern Sauce and String Beans, and Wok-fried Chayote with Garlic, Chili and Oyster Sauce.

The dessert platter was not one to be missed with classics including Mango Sticky Rice, Sugar Dumplings with Coconut, Thai Sweet Crispy Rice Cakes with Sugar Drizzle, and Sweet Vermicelli in Coconut Sauce.

Perfect for celebratory occasions or for an unforgettable night with your loved ones in the capital.

A safe family layover at Singapore Changi Airport with Aerotel Singapore

Travel has changed a lot since we were on our last International flight in March 2020, and with children we were naturally worried about the new process and hygiene standards throughout our journey. We were so happy to find Aerotel at Singapore Changi Airport for our long layover ensuring not only did our family stay safe and comfortable but we were ready for the next leg of our journey well fed and rested. As soon as we disembarked our plane a member of the Aerotel team were there to greet us at the gate. We did not have to line up in crowded groups or go to any transit zones but were transported by buggy immediately from gate to hotel check-in. The check-in process was quick and easy and before we knew it we were in the comfort of our family room ready for a good night’s sleep. The spacious room incorporated two large bedrooms, full bathroom, and cozy lounge. The room included a complimentary meal for each of us including Kid’s Meal options which were a huge hit with our children. When it was time for our flight the next morning, the lovely team gave us a wake-up call and escorted us by buggy directly to our gate. There is no safer way to have a layover than at Aerotel. The service was informative and helpful and being able to sleep, eat, and relax in the comfort of our room while waiting for our next flight was essential when travelling with young children. Highly recommended for families who are travelling through Singapore.
