10 Best Romantic Dining Spots to Try in Bangkok

Bangkok is truly a city for romantic dining. The choices of cuisine, views, and fine food are endless, and you are assured of having a memorable night out with some of these superb spots. For lovely dining along the Chao Phraya River, the Mandarin Oriental's Le Normandie (classy French) provides charming river views to go with your meal, as does the Deck, which has classic views of Wat Arun the Temple of Dawn. If you literally want to get higher, opt for a splurge at Vertigo in the Banyan Tree, where you can dine al fresco 68 floors up with a 360 degree panorama of the city, or try high end Indian at Rang Mahal, or fine dining over Lumpini Park at Park Society. Other great spots include the colonial House on Sathorn and also the  Parisienne apartment favourite L'Appart. For blissful garden settings, head out to renowned chef Ian Kittichai's Issaya Siamese Club, set in a lovely old Thai villa. With such a selection, you might want to start planning a week's worth of romance!
