As one of Asia’s most vibrant holiday cities, Bangkok is a dream destination for couples the world over. A world-renowned cuisine hotspot, wining and dining is not the only romantic activity available to couples and honeymooners heading to the bustling metropolis.

Spa Days and Cruises

Those who are looking to kick off their Thai getaway in style should first head to one of Bangkok’s premier spa facilities and enjoy a massage or couples therapy session in the inner sanctum of the luxurious healing facilities. Couples who wish to see the sights from the comfort of a cruise can also hop on board a Chao Phraya cruise and take in the beauty of the riverside by day or by night with Anantara Cruises or any of the countless other tour operators in the city.

Romantic Dining Options

Couples will find no finer alternative to the Buri Tara Wine Bar & Restaurant where the romance of Bali’s beachside bliss is recreated in cosmopolitan Bangkok.

Sweet-tooth Options
Couples with a sweet tooth should also stop by to sample the traditional Thai dessert selections at Cher Cheeva, arguably one of the most romantic restaurants in town. Night owls, on the other hand, will find Bangkok’s rooftop bars to be a spectacular setting to enjoy a romantic evening as venues the likes of Sky Bar and Octave offer sweeping views of the city and impressive collections of wines.

A Walk in the Park
Often compared to Central Park in New York, the Lumpini Park is another romantic precinct in the capital where couples can paddle boat around the manmade lake or simply stroll hand in hand around the beautifully maintained lawns and tree-lined avenues of the park.

The Atmosphere

Home to dozens of stunning temples clad in gold, Luang Prabang embodies a traditional yet timeless atmosphere; a magical setting perfect to celebrate your very own fairy-tale Laos wedding with your friends and family around you.

The Setting

Luang Prabang is home to a wide range of exquisite colonial villas and hotels such as AVANI+ Luang Prabang, which offers couples great wedding packages that cater to different budgets. Making inquiries and booking well advance is recommended.

The Logistics

If you wish to be cost-effective with your planning, choosing to book your wedding venue and other plans for the off-peak season would help you save up to 20-35% off your given rates. To save more consider booking your flights around 3-6 prior. This applies especially for ASEAN regions, since booking in advance is approximately 53% cheaper than doing so closer to the date.

Plan Minimally

Destination weddings can be quite expensive, but it also can be quite affordable if one goes about planning it correctly and minimally. Thinking long and hard about what will be crucial for the ceremony and keeping the guest list small will save you a couple hundred of dollars. Since destination weddings are all about the views, location and novel experience consider skipping the extravagant party favours and decorations.

Lover’s Leap is as romantic as the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet. Located in Trincomalee, Lover’s Leap can be found in the vicinity of the Koneswaram Temple. Many Trincomalee hotel providers list out Lovers Leap as a famous tourist attraction, and some hotels such as Trinco Blu by Cinnamon, even add it as part of a tour of the city! If you’re staying in the vicinity, do make it a point to visit the Koneswaram Temple and Lovers Leap.

Legend has it that Francina van Reed fell in love with a young Dutch officer and was believed to have been engaged until the time his period in the Foreign Service came to an end. Following the termination of the engagement, the young officer was set to depart to his home country from the harbour. Upon watching her beloved’ ship depart, young Francina threw herself off the cliff and died a tragic death. To commemorate her untimely and devastating death, her father, an officer of high ranks constructed a stone pillar inscribing the date April 24th 1687.

It has been known that lovers who couldn’t be together due to family restrains or other issues, have flung themselves off the rock, in the hope of being reunited together in the afterlife. However, despite the tragic stories that have come to surround Lover’s Leap, the view from the summit will simply take your breath away – without having to fling yourself off the rock.

Lovers Leap can only be accessed through the Koneswaram Temple so do bear in mind that as footwear is not permitted inside the premises of the Temple; the ideal time to visit would be in the early hours of the morning or at dusk. Also remember to dress appropriately or entry to the temple premises will not be permitted.
