Although Bangkok is called City of Angels - not City of Love - there are plenty of romantic places where you can celebrate this very special day with your better half. Nowadays Valentine’s Day across Thailand has become increasingly popular with many special romantic events to mark this day.

Therefore, we recommend you to call your chosen place and make a reservation ahead. Whether you prefer some sky-high dining or a night on the river – we will show you our recommendations not far from your hotel in Sukhumvit to enjoy an evening in style, whether you on a first date or just reminiscing about years gone by.

1. Apsara Dinner Cruise by Banyan Tree Hotel

What could be more romantic than a sunset river cruise on the majestic Chao Phraya river combined with a delicious Thai dinner. While you could also join one of the touristic river cruises, the Apsara Dinner Cruise takes you on a renovated historical rice-barge on a cruise along the temples and palaces located on the banks of the river. A highlight that we are sure you will remember for a long time is a stop of the boat in front of the illuminated Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). The boat departs from the River City Pier at 8pm, reservations can be made via the Banyan Tree Hotel.

2. The Vertigo restaurant at Banyan Tree Hotel

From the river to one of Bangkok’s favorite rooftops – the Vertigo restaurant offers you a stunning view of Bangkok’s nightly skyline and the nearby river. For Valentine’s Day there will be a special five course dinner including one glass of Champagne and a red rose for your loved ones. The Banyan Tree Hotel is located at Sathorn Road, reservation is recommended and can be done via phone.

3. Sala Rim Naam at Mandarin Oriental Hotel

Back to ground level, this restaurant is so close to the river, you’re almost on top of the water. The location plus the legendary Mandarin Oriental service and food prepared by the well-known Executive Chef Vichit Mukura – this will be a memorable experience for your Valentine’s Day celebration. The cuisine is Thai but with a modern twist, so expect some surprises. For a romantic dinner, the opening times are 7pm to 10:30pm. Please call to the Mandarin Oriental Riverside Bangkok for your reservation.
