Bangkok, certainly one of the world’s big metros. With a humble beginning and history, the city has grown in leaps and bounds; anybody will tell you that Bangkok has changed so much in the past 20 years. Imagine a big city with towering skyscrapers, buzzing cars, whizzing elevated trains and rushing pedestrians. This is Bangkok. A truly romantic city? Yes, amidst all this development, the City of Angels is still able to keep her humility and charm. And while exploring this side of the capital, we’ve selected intimate hotels and special dining options to further prove this alluring side of the Kingdom’s capital.
The romance starts the moment you step into the capital. You’ll be greeted with traditional flower garlands and then into an airy and roomy black cab to your luxury hotel. Enjoy authentic Thai cuisine for dinner with a magical traditional cultural show as entertainment. The charming experience has only just begun.
Experience what many are not able to do while in Bangkok. Head to Wat Pho, Bangkok’s oldest temple and listen to that hypnotic sound of the monks’ early morning chants. Follow that with a visit to a local temple where you’ll make an offering and receive a blessing of good luck and good fortune. This sets up your next stop nicely, a visit to the famed Grand Palace. Marvel at the glittering temples and golden roofed structures, set against the smooth rhythms of the Chao Phraya River. Indulge with an afternoon spa treatment designed for couples and then set off on an evening excursion through the illuminated streets to a charming riverside restaurant. Dine with the glittering river as a backdrop before wandering the night markets and returning to your hotel.
See a part Bangkok that is not normally associated with the city; slow paced living. Hop on a longtail boat and meander the narrow canals where scenes of rural Bangkok life, beautiful teak houses and exotic fruit orchards fill the landscapes. You’ll stop to visit a local market, wander through a small temple and enjoy a refreshing drink with a family before returning to town for an afternoon at leisure. Enjoy your farewell dinner on the capital’s highly acclaimed rooftop restaurant where the views are breathtaking and the food is divine – perfect for a romantic evening.
As charming as Bangkok is, you still have to see the rest of the country. Mountains, forests, rural life and of course, turquoise blue oceans and sandy beaches await your arrival. See our Thailand tours for options. Expand your romantic experience in the country.
