Turn Up the Romance to 11 with Our Travel Ideas for Couples In Bangkok

For those wanting to spend some quality time together, we’ve put together our favorite travel ideas for couples in Bangkok. It’s full of relaxing, exciting and romantic ideas for you and your loved one to enjoy. It’s unsurprising that Thailand is seen as a classic destination for couples travel, and therefore unsurprising that many couples look for travel ideas when visiting Bangkok. The city is usually the first destination on many first time visitors lists, and rightly so.

Take a Longtail Boat on the Chao Phraya River

This is a no-brainer and an easy winner when it comes to exploring Bangkok as a couple. There are plenty of options to explore the river, including many public transport options, but for the most relaxing and couple friendly option, we recommend you send a little more and book yourself an afternoon private longtail tour. Time it right and you’ll get a sunset thrown in to boot. These bookings can usually be made by your hotel or at one of the thousands of tourist offices, but if you’re looking for a cheap deal then we suggest heading down to the river and bartering with the captain direct.

Getting a Traditional Thai Massage

Thai massage is something that you absolutely have to experience when exploring Thailand. First off, it feels amazing and can be incredibly relaxing (it can also be a somewhat painful and stimulating one too!). Secondly, it’s remarkably cheap if you opt for a small outfit. For those wanting to make the most of the romantic opportunity, we recommend finding one of the more upmarket spas and booking into a couples massage. These are usually carried out by 2 trained masseurs in the same room, where you’ll experience aromatherapy oils, relaxation and indulgence all in each other’s company.

Traditional Thai Cooking Class

They say that food is the way to the soul, and with the quality of food in Thailand this is no surprise. The food is simply fantastic and before long you’ll be wondering how you could rustle these dishes up again when you get home. When you’re in Bangkok, there are endless different classes that you can take ranging from traditional street food to high end decadence. Search around for the best courses and read some reviews, our favorites always include a trip to a local market to purchase the produce before you cook with it!

Taking in the View With a Cocktail

Now that doesn’t sound bad right? Bangkok is home to some of the world’s best rooftop bars with some of the world’s best drinks. For the most special and memorable experience book a table at the edge of a platform in time for sunset. It’s an experience that you won’t forget. The most famous of these rooftop bars/restaurants is Lebua Sky Bar, which shot to fame after The Hangover 2, but it with a focus on food, we suggest you search around for a bar specific one if you’re only after a sundowner.
