Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and couples around the world are rehearsing their proposals and preparing to get down on one knee. Here, discover the 10 most romantic spots to propose to your loved one in Bangkok.
The city of Bangkok simply lights up after dark, with a number of dazzling temples, luxurious hotels, and more lining the peaceful Chao Phraya River. Visitors to Thailand can opt to get up-close and personal with all of these amazing sights on board one of the many dinner cruises available along the river. Most are equipped with some sort of live entertainment, the best food and drink for wining and dining, and an overall romantic atmosphere as couples cruise down the river. Some of the most popular dinner cruises in Bangkok include the Grand Pearl Luxury River Cruise & Dining Experience, Loy Nava Dinner Cruises, Chao Phraya Princess Cruise, and River Star Princess Cruise.
Standing at almost 200 feet tall, with 42 gondolas to choose from, the glittering Ferris wheel at Asiatique the Riverfront is a sight to behold. The Ferris wheel is an iconic landmark after dark, and the illuminated attraction can be seen from around the city as soon as the sun begins to set. Overlooking the Chao Phraya River, proposing from one of the gondolas as the Ferris wheel loops its repetitive, slow track would be one of the most romantic ways to do so in the city. A normal adult ticket to ride is ฿300, but hopeful grooms and brides-to-be might instead opt for a private (฿1,000 per two people) or VIP (฿1,500-2,000 for 2-5 people) gondola instead.
Valentine’s Day has long had a love affair with the color red. From roses to ensembles, the color red has almost always been a symbol of this romantic holiday. What better way to propose than at Red Sky then? This rooftop restaurant and bar sits 55 floors up at the Centara Grand in Bangkok, offering guests panoramic views of the seemingly never-ending capital. With red décor throughout, Red Sky is sure to create the most romantic of atmospheres for couples hoping to propose.
In addition to having some of the most sublime curries in town, Smooth Curry also serves up a romantic and noteworthy dining experience. The restaurant is located on the third level of the Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien Hotel, and it is impeccably decorated, equipped with spread-out seating providing diners with privacy even during a dinner rush. The dimly lit dining area certainly sets the mood for a dreamy evening while diners enjoy a good helping of traditional Thai cuisine.
What better way to pull off a sweet proposal than by proposing in one of the sweetest places in the city? Chocolate Ville is simply enchanting, equipped with a lighted gazebo, pastel-colored buildings and miniature windmills, and romantic lakeside dining. Despite its name, the small city is not overflowing with chocolate. Instead, it is bursting with charm and delicious Thai and Western cuisine, making it one noteworthy place to propose.
An enchanting combination of delicious food, excellent wine, and an atmosphere that can not be beaten are what husbands and wives to-be can expect at Sirocco. The word is out about this five-star restaurant, and it is recommended that those who wish to dine here make reservations at least a week ahead of time. With a long list of awards and the stunning Sky Bar just adjacent to its romantically lit staircase for a post-engagement celebration drink, there is no better place to propose than at Sirocco.
