Another restaurant, Finz sets the mood via its spectacular views and low lighting. Specialising in memorable seafood dishes, this is one restaurant that is worth a visit for a lover of fish.

When planning a wedding, the number of details one will need to care of are truly too numerous to count. Conventional wisdom dictates that you start planning the event at least a year in advance and for that one year, the number of issues one will need to sort out will most likely be overwhelming. Given this reality, it is truly no surprise that many couples nowadays opt for destination weddings. Having a destination wedding does not mean you have to compromise on the grand plans you had for your ceremony: it simply provides you with a change of scenery and a truly memorable backdrop against which to be married. For instance, a couple can opt to travel to Indonesia and choose to have a beach wedding in Bali, one of the most scenic islands belonging to the country.
A destination wedding provides you with numerous advantages and one such huge advantage is that most resorts including Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Indonesia,offer couples with the option of choosing a wedding package. This reduces not only the cost, but the hassle of having to organise it yourself. Given that the wedding will take place on the beach, one can also save on décor, for the stunning setting alone will be more than sufficient. It’s also ideal for guests seeking to go away on vacation, for most resorts will happily negotiate a reduced rate for a large number of guests making it more affordable. The only glitch is ensuring that you aim to have the wedding during the peak season for a beach wedding on a rainy day is surely not the way to go.
A beach wedding in Bali is also more likely to be less stressful than a wedding back home. The change of scenery contributes to a change of pace and instead of meeting and greeting your new in-laws for a few minutes, couples will feel more inclined to take their time and mingle with their guests. The wedding will be a lovely combination of elegance, relaxation and celebration for most resorts will go that extra distance to ensure that the venue is beautifully decorated. Just imagine the marvellous photo opportunities! With a destination wedding, the choices are limitless.

The riverside location of Anantara Bangkok Sathorn, with its proximity to the Sathorn boat pier makes it one of perfect hotels Bangkok to experience the city via the Chao Phraya River. As a prominent luxury hotel in Bangkok Thailand, guests are offered an amazing selection of accommodation, facilities and amenities and the opportunity to join some of the most adventurous and captivating night cruises in the city.

One of the highlights of a visit to Bangkok is taking a boat on the Chao Phraya River or exploring the many big and small canals around Thonburi. Doing this in the evening has its own charm as many of Bangkok’s great temples and historic sites are located along the water and these beautifully illuminated buildings offer the perfect opportunity to experience the city’s history through its monuments. Among the many ways to cruise Bangkok’s water are dinner cruises that are probably the best known option to see the city by night and overnight cruises on converted rice barges. Piers along the river ensure visitors have easy access to night cruise boats and to many attractions.

Good food, traditional Thai dancing and music and even a disco on board in addition to fabulous views of Bangkok’s famous historic landmarks are a part of many cruises. Potential passengers can choose from several types of vessels to suit their mood; from large modern boats with hundreds of other guests that are literally moving restaurants to private boats with a luxurious ambience and candlelit dinner thrown in and cruises on converted old teak barges that serve a limited number of guests. The choice of the cruise would naturally depend on the passengers. Those in a hurry can opt for the fast modern boats while others with time to savour the beauty of a river trip in the evening can make their way leisurely along the river in a converted rice barge enjoying the passing scene silhouetted by the setting sun or illuminated and gleaming in the water. The play of light on polished teakwood, savouring beautifully presented Thai food while listening to traditional music in an elegant environment are some of the advantages of cruising on a luxuriously appointed rice barge. As the sides of the barge are open, every table is guaranteed unimpeded views and the feel of cool evening breezes. For those who wish to experience longer leisurely journeys, overnight private and shared cruises are also options on converted rice barges that take passengers past the Bangkok sites further along on the Chao Phraya River.
