We did the dinner cruise and it was fun, food was OK and seeing the lighted pagodas was lovely. We even danced to our own request!

Chao Phraya is a river located in the heart of Bangkok. There are plenty types of water transportation, from basic motorboats to fancy ferries with restaurant and live band. It is a good option to take a ferry from Royal Palace to flower market.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast

If you want to be pampered I suggest the Peninsula which is on the river and has 3 ferries. Worth it.
