The River is honestly very beautiful but one thing is night cruise. There night cruise is not so entertaining and nothing in Dinner but they mentioned there is a Dinner program . But the night view is really awesome

A good way to see the city at night. But very overpriced (Not sure if it is because we were tourists, or it was peak season). Will I do it again? Probably not. Doing it once is enough.
