Where to book
Don’t take you chance to walk-in and buy the ticket just before the cruise leave because you will certainly pay full price and if it’s not rainy season, the chance is high the tickets are sold out. It is better to book it in advance. There are a number of travel agents that you can book the cruise with.

Some of them offer a better deal than others while some don’t offer the discount at all. I found that most of websites with English language offer very small discount or no discount at all. It is probably they target for foreigner tourists who don’t know or care much about the discount.

There are 2 websites that I would recommend for the booking.

First agent is Wisplanet (http://www.wisplanet.com) that offer up to 50% discount. However, the website is in Thai that make it hard to understand the content and the offer. The best way is to let your travel agent or your hotel make a booking for you by calling 02-379-6290 or 087-606-9055, and make sure you get 40%-50% discount.

The second website is http://www.travelgoodview.com. This is another Thai language website which offer at least 40% discount. If you want to check English website, just go to https://chaophrayacruise.com. This agent doesn’t offer discount through the website but you can still get upto 35% with their deals which up come every month.
