Yes folks, that time of year is here again —the time to show our significant others just how much we love them. We’re not exactly sure why St. Valentine is the patron saint of love and we were too lazy to look it up so we can’t enlighten you on this point but suffice it to say that the modern version of Valentine’s Day probably bears little resemblance to the original celebration, whatever it may have consisted of, and we are now expected to spend lots of money on gifts and dinners to reaffirm our tender affections. 
So, with that in mind, here is all of the information we could find in regard to suitable places to celebrate your Valentine’s Day with your loved one in the Sukhumvit area. Please enjoy your evening whatever it may involve doing.
