How to Find Love in Bangkok as a Foreign Man
Looking for love in the Thai capital? Your first stop on the way to finding it is Lumpini Park, an oasis of tranquility at the heart of the city of smiles. Bring your phone and a good book and just relax. If a girl catches your eye, smile at her, and make and maintain eye contact.
Shopping malls are another great place for meeting girls in Bangkok. Why is that? Most Thai girls enjoy shopping and gather at malls. Wander around Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, or Terminal 21; these are some of the most visited malls. Other popular places are Pantip Plaza, Central Embassy Shopping Mall, and Central World Shopping Mall.
Again, smile and make eye contact. Pretend you want to buy a shirt or pants and ask the girl for advice. In Thailand, men practically dictate everything, so she will appreciate being asked for tips or advice on anything from the best places to eat to what clothes to wear.
You’ll meet lots of Thai girls and foreign backpackers at a place called Khao San Road. Keep in mind that it’s not a place to spend lots of time at; it targets backpackers, after all.
Like most Europeans and Americans, Thai people appreciate a good meal and drink. Once you introduce yourself to a girl you like, invite her to a restaurant. She’s likely to accept. Sharing a meal with someone can be personal, intimate, and even erotic as long as you find the best place.
Mezzaluna at Lebua Hotel’s cozy, intimate ambiance is ideal for devoting a special girl some quality time. It is not cheap by any means, but it’s definitely worth the investment. Book in advance and dress smartly.
You could also head to Chuaphloeng Road, where you’ll find Issaya Siamese Club. It features romantic ambiance, exceptional service, and the most delicious food you’ll ever taste.
In Bangkok, people don’t go to clubs before midnight. You can choose from several good bars to hang out with your date after you’ve enjoyed an amazing meal together. We recommend Cloud 47 and Maggie Choo’s. The former is a casual rooftop bar without a dress code, and you won’t break the bank. The latter is a bit pricier, but the cocktails are worth it.
