Bangkok dating ideas for those couples on a first date. If you’ve travelled to Thailand and been lucky enough to meet an Asian girl that you want to spend more time with, then congratulations! The start of your relationship is exciting, and you will want to impress her as much as you can. Luckily for you, Bangkok is one of the best dating cities in the world for Asian Dating, with so many excellent experiences to choose from. Here are four Bangkok dating ideas for you and your new Asian girlfriend in Bangkok.
Take a stroll around Chatuchak Market
With more than 8,000 stalls spread across 35 acres, Chatuchak Weekend Market is one of Bangkok’s most bustling first-date destinations. The largest market in Asia is a sensory overload, with vibrant colours all over the place, delicious scents from the food stalls, and a combination of dance and techno music blaring from high-end stalls to entice tourists in for a browse. You can spend hours with your date browsing the various stalls before treating her to some delicious Thai cuisine.
Organise a river cruise
There are many options available to you if you’re hoping to WOW your girlfriend with a sunset cruise down the Chao Phraya River. You can hire a local boat and captain for a few hundred baht and have the freedom to explore Bangkok’s dramatic cityscape by water. Or if you really fancy pushing the boat out (pun intended), you could treat her to a lavish three-course meal on a fancy evening river cruise. Whatever you decide, a sunset cruise through the heart of the city is a great way to impress your girlfriend.
Spend the day in Bangkok’s ‘Green Lung’
Although Bangkok has a reputation for being fairly polluted, there is a beautiful enclave within the city limits in which you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of nature. Bang Krachao is known as the ‘Green Lung,’ and you can spend hours inside just walking around and enjoying nature. If you like to keep busy, you can explore the floating markets and the numerous food stalls that populate the enclave and treat your girlfriend to a delicious meal or unique gift.
Hire a Tuk-Tuk for the evening
Depending on your girlfriend’s personality, she might not view Tuk-Tuks in the same light as you. For foreign tourists, Tuk-Tuks are a sensation and are the only way to traverse the city’s bustling streets. For locals, they are more of a nuisance, as they drive erratically and disobey many of the laws of the road. That being said, if you make arrangements with a trusted Tuk-Tuk guide in advance, you can take your girlfriend on an adventure around the city, stopping at bars, restaurants, and other points of interest along the way. It can be a great way to see different parts of the city in one night, and even if she’s not usually a fan of Tuk-Tuks, she’ll end the evening feeling grateful for the effort you put in.
