WHERE TO GO
Known as the “Mother of all Malls” in Bangkok, Iconsiam is the newest luxury shopping mall on the Bangkok riverside, and it’s packed with more than 500 shops and 100 restaurants. Here honeymooners can dine and shop to their hearts’ delight with a mix of luxury and high-street brands from all over the world, including a sevenstorey Takashimaya store, the first in Thailand. The mall, which was developed by the people behind Siam Paragon and EmQuartier, also has an indoor floating market and art gallery. Take a break at the Icon Cineconic cinema or head outdoors for a romantic walk along the riverside promenade, with more than 107,000sqft of green space.
Take a sunset cruise along the famed Chao Phraya River with Supanniga Eating Room, a hospitality group that also runs a restaurant serving up traditional, home-style recipes at Thong Lo. The boat cruise lasts an hour and takes up to 40 guests along the bustling riverside to take in Bangkok’s sights and sounds. Couples can choose between a sunset cruise paired with delicious canapés and cocktails by Vesper or a six-course dinner of traditional Thai dishes signature to Supanniga. Top it all off with a glass of Taittinger Champagne—the perfect way for newlyweds to celebrate their love.
Issaya Siamese Club
At Issaya Siamese Club, celebrity chef Ian Chalermkittichai creates modern, avant-garde dishes that surprise the palate while still honouring Thai tradition. Getting there is half the fun for honeymooners, who will need to find their way through the maze-like streets of Sathorn to reach the charming, centuries-old villa. Signature, must-try dishes include the yum hua plee, a mouthwatering salad made with banana blossom and palm hearts tossed with crispy shallots and roasted peanuts in a chilli jam dressing; and the mussuman curry lamb shank.
