Whether you want to spend time with your loved one, finding someone special or just celebrate your singleness, here are unique and awesome ideas what to do on Valentine’s Day in Bangkok.
First a classic — dining in a small and intimate restaurant. Plenty of hotels as well as restaurants offer promotions and themed dinner events for this day. The downside could be that you find yourself packed with hundreds of other couples in a romantic but busy restaurant. So why not choosing a rather small but intimate restaurant. Use the central location of the hotels near Nana plaza and walk short distances or hop onto the BTS to your favorite restaurant. One of those venues for example is the Issaya Siamese Club. This charming 100-year-old house hidden on a small street is the perfect setting for one of the most renowned fine dining Thai restaurants. The romantic scene in the middle of a garden, a wooden veranda and charming interior instantly gives you a romantic mood, ideal for couples. Another long-time favorite is the Franco-Thai restaurant La Table de Tee with a limit of serving 20 persons per evening or The Red Rose at Shanghai Mansion which offers Chinese cuisine with unique Chinese whiskeys and tasty plum wine just as sweet as it should be on this day of love.
Secondly, a romantic river cruise on the majestic Chao Phraya river is always a good choice for couples or soon to be in case of a proposed date. While some river cruises are catered to mass tourism with loud music, the typical dance performance and mediocre food, for this special day you should choose something more quiet, private and intimate. One cruise that ticks all these requirements is the Apsara Dinner Cruise, offered by the famous Banyan Tree Hotel. Their river cruise takes place on a vintage rice barge and lasts for about 2 hours. While passing precious sights such as the Wat Arun temple, Grand Palace and the golden Rama VIII Bridge you will be served a multi-course dinner consisting of the finest Thai food paired with the according drinks. If this sounds interesting to you, the booking can be made through the Banyan Tree hotel.
A truly unique experience could be a romantic night city tour by Tuk Tuk. As currently, there is only one tour agency offering this, Smiling Tuk Tuk's tour named accordingly 'The Romantic'. Take a safe and fun Tuk Tuk ride in Bangkok's Old City at night and marvel at the beautifully lit-up sites and buildings on Valentine’s Day. The tour includes visit to a temple, sampling traditional sweets prepared for weddings and a dinner at a romantic restaurant with a river view.
Lastly, in case you are single on Valentine’s Day there are several Black Valentine’s events and parties in Bangkok. Best is to search on social media for the exact venues and line up, which consists of either live bands or well-known DJs. Remember, most if not all parties have a special dress code applied — black.
