“ROMANTIC DINNING The food is upscale Thai and western, think duck leg confit in a honey sauce, New Zealand tenderloin, or traditional Thai with ultra-fresh seafood. But actually, this is one place where you aren't coming mainly for the food. While there are plenty of waterfront dining options to pick from in Bangkok, this is the only one with a brightly lit golden temple right in your face. The Deck by the River as it is fully named, boasts the city's best view of its most iconic landmark, Wat Arun, or The Temple of Dawn. If you get here early, you can take in a purple and red sunset with the silhouette of the temple right in the center, and once it gets dark, the temple gets illuminated and becomes a golden beacon. Needless to say, this place is a good choice for a romantic night out.”

“Eat Sight Story is a quirky new spot that serves delicious Thai fusion cuisine and an exciting array of cocktails, complete with views of Wat Arun and the Chao Phraya River. It is a delightful surprise hidden down an alleyway, quite unassuming and you might not find it if you didn’t know what you were looking for. It’s the ideal spot to relax and watch the colours of the sunset reflected in the river, then admire the sparkling evening lights of the temples.”
