10 Most Romantic Things to Do While in Bangkok

Bangkok is full of romantic things to do. You can start your day off with a visit to the atmospheric Grand Palace, the most venerated spot in the country. Or if the crowds are a bit much and quiet is your thing, head out to Bang Krachao, the city's biggest green space, where there are beautiful parks, places to ride bicycles, and plenty of peace and quiet. Of course not all of the romantic outings in the City of Angels require running around. In fact, most are highly sedentary. Start off with a rejuvenating hot spring bath at Yunomori Onsen, relax and completely de-stress at the Theta State Float Center, or enjoy one of the city's famed pampering massage treatments at The Oriental Spa or Chi, The Spa. Afterwards, take in a private serviced movie on a loveseat at Siam Paragon's Enigma theater. Continue relaxing by going for a drink at one of the most romantic spots in town, sunset at the Banyan Tree's rooftop Moon Bar, featuring a 360 degree panorama of all Bangkok. Finally, finish your amorous day with an ambient cruise along the Chao Phraya River on one of Grand Pearl's romantic dinner cruises. Whatever your choices, they will make for an unforgettable time in Bangkok, the Venice of the East.
