The boats are clean and comfortable. Took the 7:15pm ride where it was a cross from sunset orange view to beautifully lit wall murals and bridges in the night. Some parts of the river were smelly but bearable.

Post Sunset is the perfect time to go for river cruise, with colourful lighting across makes it more beautiful. Definitely a must see and experience

Got a complimentary ticket on our hotel stay. It was a nice experience since you will have a nice tour around the city. Perfect time for this is during sunset for you to see both the murals and the city lights.
