That time of the year is approaching once again where couples celebrate their commitment to each other by giving gifts and sharing a romantic dinner together. Here are a few ideas of celebrating Valentine’s Day in Bangkok with someone special.
Celebrating by the River
Show your partner how much they mean to you by treating them to a romantic dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya River. Loy Nava Dinner Cruises provide couples with a decadent candlelit dinner as they take in the sight of some of Bangkok’s most famous landmarks such as Wat Arun and the Pinklao Bridge. The cruise is held on a luxurious teakwood rice barge and sets sail at 18:00, which gives couples the chance to watch the sun set as they sail slowly down the river before enjoying a fabulous ten course meal. The Valentine’s Day package includes a glass of Champagne, a bottle of wine a special Valentine’s Day dessert and comes to an end at 20:00.
People who prefer to keep their feet firmly on dry land can still enjoy romantic river views from one of the many excellent restaurants that line the Chao Phraya River such as the Riverside Terrace. This award winning restaurant provides a Thai culture show, while the restaurants chefs create dishes specially to order. Other great restaurants to celebrate Valentine’s Day in include the French D’Sens restaurant at the Dusit Thani hotel, Sala Rim Nam restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, Le Du and Horizon Sky Lounge
Celebrating on the Rooftops of Bangkok
Many of the leading rooftop restaurants in Bangkok offer special Valentine’s Day dinners and people who book a meal at a rooftop restaurant will be able to enjoy their dinner underneath the stars as they admire views of Bangkok. The Vertigo restaurant at the Banyan Tree hotel is often celebrated as being one of the city’s best rooftop restaurants and this year they will be offering a delicious five course dinner, which comes complete with a red rose and a chilled glass of champagne.
The International Buffet at the Baiyoke Sky Hotel is another great place to enjoy a Valentine’s Day meal while taking in stunning views of the Bangkok skyline. After eating their fill, couples can they make their way to the revolving rooftop deck to enjoy picturesque panoramic views.
Keeping it Simple
Nothing is more romantic than taking a walk in the evening with someone special, and people who do not want to spend money on a decadent meal are sure to score points (and probably a lot more) simply by taking their date for a stroll along the banks of the Chao Phraya River. If you do decide to go for this option, make sure you give your date full attention and perhaps purchase a bunch of flowers or some chocolates to sweeten the occasion.
Dancing the night away on Valentines Day
If you are not in a relationship, there are also plenty of ways to make sure that you’re not alone on Valentine’s Day. The day falls on a Friday this year, so if you’re single why not shake your stuff on the dance floor on one of Bangkok’s hottest night clubs. OK, so this might not be the best way to meet your true love, but the chances are you won’t go home alone.
