Things to do on Honeymoon: Pamper your beloved with surplus shopping. There are plenty of tourist attractions to explore, like the temple of the reclining Buddha, the grand palace and many Buddhist temples. Also, dine at some of the world’s finest rooftop restaurants, which make it among the best places in Thailand for honeymoon.
In pancake-flat Bangkok, elevated views are as precious as a good dish of pat tai. Yet for a place that barely breaks sea level there are quite a few places to marvel at the scale of the city: from a Buddhist temple on an artificial mountain to chic restaurants crowning towering skyscrapers.
Open-air bar/restaurant River Vibe is at the top of River View Guest House, overlooking a pretty bend in the Chao Phraya River. The casual, backpackery vibe also means that there’s no restrictive dress code, and a beer here is a fraction of the price charged at other roof-toppers. Tip: for food take the short walk north towards Th Yaowarat, the road that cuts through Bangkok’s Chinatown and is famous for its delicious street eats. If you go at night, the view of the large neon signs lining the crowded road makes for a great photo.
The Golden Mount Buddhist temple sits atop Bangkok’s only true hill (artificial, of course), offering great views of pretty neighbouring temples and Th Ratchadamnoen, the city’s Champs-Élysées-like royal avenue. Tip: dress appropriately (cover your shoulders and legs) to gain access to this religious site, and don’t forget to check out the gory temple murals at neighbouring Wat Saket.
For a great view of Sukhumvit, and some wind in your hair, check out the 360-degree views from chic bar and restaurant Red Sky on the 56th floor of the Centara Grand At Centralworld hotel. With open-air seating and an unobstructed view of the urban landscape, you truly have the city at your feet. Tip: beat sky-high bar prices by visiting during the two-for-one drinks happy hour that runs between 4pm to 6pm.
