Sailing softly down the river, with temples and palaces on either bank, is one of the most romantic things you can do in Bangkok. There are plenty of cruises to choose from, but the delicious menu and overall luxury of the Apsara River Cruise is truly a cut above the majority of the boats travelling this well-worn tourist trail. Taking time to pause in front of the famous sights, passengers are treated to a delicious five-course Thai feast – not a hectic buffet – on a romantic converted rice-barge. Read More...

There is no lack of rooftop bars in town, but Vertigo has always been among the favourites. With an unusual narrow and elongated shape, the entire top of the building is occupied by both the bar and the restaurant and gives the impression of being aboard a spaceship in the sky. Dinner here can be incredibly romantic, with a small table lit by candlelight, and all of Bangkok spread out below. Read More...

You and your loved one can have your very own cooking class with a master chef, so you can be as silly or romantic as you like with no other students to worry about. Blue Elephant is one of the best cooking schools in Thailand and is located on the top floor of their stunning heritage restaurant in Silom. Whether you’re an amateur or a professional chef, the instructors here are passionate about their work. Read More...

Enjoy an afternoon bicycle ride in Bang Kra Jao; an undeveloped wilderness area just a short ride from downtown Bangkok. Take in the scenery along paths and walkways, cycle along canals and through the jungle and pass quaint local villages. After a short stretch riding in the city, take a serene ferry ride across the Chao Phraya River. Once you reach the other side, you’ll find yourself in the Bangkok of old—wilderness, waterways and jungle. Here, you continue your guided 25-km cycling experience. Pedal along paths, minor roads, and walkways, taking in the verdant surroundings as you go. Read More...

For something truly special for you and your partner, consider taking an overnight cruise on a traditional teak barge upstream to the ancient capital city of Ayutthaya. Sailing slowly along the river and seeing lesser-visited temples is quite unforgettable. Trips can take between 24 and 48 hours, depending on the package you select. There are several overnight cruises sailing from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, but we think the most romantic ones are either the Anantara Riverside’s cruise aboard the Anantara Dream, or the Mekhala River Cruise. Dimensions on board are small on both boats, but the living quarters have been lovingly designed, with high-end bedding, hot showers and traditional Thai furnishings. Read More...

A couples’ spa is probably the most popular activity for lovebirds to enjoy together, and Bangkok has no shortage of options. From hot volcanic stone treatments to cutting-edge hydrotherapy and the classic, age-old Thai massage, there’s something for every tired muscle in our list of the best spas in Bangkok. However, for dedicated couples’ treatments in Bangkok, we would have to pick Away Spa at W Hotel Bangkok. The interior is like something out of a dream and the treatment packages are unique.

Visit the house of Jim Thomson—founder of the Thai Silk Company—and pay a visit to the magnificent Suan Pakkard Palace – the former home of Prince Paripatra. Upon pickup from your hotel, enjoy a scenic drive to the former house of the famous silk merchant and wander through the impressive collection of Thai artwork and cultural artifacts that fill the rooms. Learn from your informative guide about the entrepreneur who founded the Thai Silk Company, and how he revolutionised the workforce of his era. From there, move onto one of Bangkok’s most loved period buildings and the former seat of a Thai prince! Read More...

On this private tour, you can get to know the world of Thai culture and food at the Damneon Saduak Floating Market. The merchants, on small self-paddled boats, hold an array of colourful tropical fruits, coconut sugar candy, prawns, sticky rice and more for you to browse. Located in the countryside west of Bangkok you can watch the market in full swing, admire the bustle among the calm serenity of the countryside and see the gorgeous colours of the tropical fruits that range from Malacca grapes and Chinese grapefruit to coconuts, mangoes and bananas.

If it’s your first trip to Thailand’s capital, we highly suggest you head into the heart of Bangkok with a private guide as you explore the temples and royal buildings scattered around the Grand Palace. Head inside the Grand Palace to see the carved emerald statue of the Buddha in a traditional pose in the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, admire the gilded interior that surrounds the statue on all sides, and then continue on to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha to see Thailand's largest collection of Buddha images.

Afternoon tea at the Author's Lounge in the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok Hotel is like taking a stroll through history. This hotel has hosted some of the most famous dignitaries and celebrities of the 20th century, and you can imagine just what they would have seen as the lounge has been kept with all its period charm. It's decorated with turn-of-the-century-style wicker furniture with hand-painted fabrics, and is a lovely space to spend a few hours as a couple. The tea set comes with sandwiches, scones, real clotted cream and a great choice of teas. Served from 14:00 until 18:00. Read More...
