Bangkok is even more beautiful at night, and there is nowhere more stunning than the Chao Phraya River. Join the Banyan Tree's cruise along the River of Kings, past the temples and palace on a renovated rice-barge. You will be served a delicious Thai feast whilst you sail along, and if you are  contemplating a proposal, the boat stops in front of Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn), a stunning backdrop that is sure to guarantee the answer is 'Yes'!

Sala Rim Naam at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok combines all the elements needed to be one of the best romantic Thai dining experiences in Bangkok. This is not easy to achieve with so many great restaurants all around town, and Sala Rim Naam succeeds by blending an amazing location by the riverside, not just near to the water but almost on top of it! Add to this the legendary Mandarin Oriental service, and of course all this would be meaningless without the key ingredient of a truly great place: the food! Prepared by Executive Chef Vichit Mukura, the cuisine at Sala Rim Naam is elaborate but absolutely Thai. The menu is well designed for both beginners and those who are already familiar with Thai food but still want to be surprised. Read More...

The ultra-exclusive and truly gorgeous Chakrabongse Villas is perched over the Chao Phraya River, set in a traditional Thai pavilion floating on its own private dock. Although you can get in the back door, the best way to come – especially if you’ve got a date – is by booking their private speed boat in advance; this takes you from the popular Central Sathorn Pier in front of Saphan Taksin BTS Station all the way to the impressive waterside entrance.

Offering a range of set menus only (including vegetarian and raw food options), with no a la carte, dinner at Chakrabongse Villa costs just over 1,000 baht. The menu here changes daily, but you can expect a lineup of all the Thai classics including tom yam kung, roasted duck with tamarind source, massaman curry and deep fried sea bass with spicy dressing. Arrive just before sunset for the most dramatic views stretching over the water to Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn) and take time to explore the beautiful villa grounds that surround the restaurant before or after your meal.

The best way to a man's heart is via his stomach, and there's no better place to eat till you are content than Le Du. It's a new rising star on the culinary scene of Bangkok and you better go there now before the word is out and seats become hard to get. Despite a French sounding name, Le Du is not a French restaurant at all… Le Du means 'Season' in Thai and categorizing its cuisine is a bit difficult. It could be defined as Young Creative Cuisine with Thai Roots with touches from many international origins. The restaurant has low lighting and nooks, perfect for whispering sweet nothings over dessert.  Read More...
