Icon­siam

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.

Sup­pan­niga Cruise

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.
