Romantic Bangkok



Description:

When it comes to romantic ambience, Bangkok, the Venice of the Orient, has plenty to go around. In the heart of a bustling city lies a beguiling collection of secret gardens, elegant restaurants and mystical views. If you know where to look, the exotic charm of elegant corners will open up to you like a lotus flower. Check in at The Oriental for classic Thai hospitality and style along the banks of the Chao Praya River and spend the weekend immersed in all the passion Bangkok has to offer.

Day 1 - Bangkok


Take breakfast in your room or have your tea or coffee along the river as the sun rises on the other side. Never mind a dozen roses, share a thousand with a visit to Rose Garden Cultural Center and Thai Village. Have lunch at the Dusit Thani Hotel but give yourself at least an hour to digest before checking into a spa suite for a couple massage at the hotel’s Devarana Spa. The spa’s design uses ambient light, long halls and reflecting pools to play with perspective, and the scented air, possibly of lemongrass, is the warm up to a treatment you are sure not to forget. Cross the street to Lumphini Park where you can have an ice cream, take a stroll among birds and trees, or rent a paddle boat. Begin the evening with a sunset drink from on high. The Sky Bar is one of the highest bars in Asia and the view of Bangkok is rivaled only by your dinner date tomorrow night. Finally climb aboard a Chao Praya River dinner cruise to enjoy the finest Thai cuisine while taking in the lights along the waterway, especially the glowing grandeur of Wat Arun. The Oriental offers its own culinary cruise but there are several others as well.
