Hangout Spots: For A Romantic Date

Md. Joynul Abedin

People take different approaches to impress their better half or beloved on Valnetine’s Day. To surprise your beloved on Valentine’s Day, some people usually take their significant one to different beautiful places where they can feel the romantic touch of nature while some others opt for restaurants for a candle light dinner. The couples, most of all, want to spend the whole day together. Whatever activity you ultimately decide on, the matter of environment and security usually comes into consideration. Moreover you obviously do not want a shabby experience. So, here are a few options where you can spend some quality time without any hassle.

Many people want to spend time with their lover in open places. They prefer quite places with natural beauty. Diabari can be a good choice in this regard. If anyone wants to witness the scenic beauty of the surrounding rivers of Dhaka and at the same time walk in an open space filled with greeneries, he or she may try this place, located in between Uttara and Ashulia. Boat rides can take people from Diabari to nearby spots of Turag river. For the river lovers, another attractive place is Mirpur Beribadh area. This area is located between the Buddhijibi Graveyard point of Beribadh and Diabari. A theme park has been set up under private ownership at the spot called ‘Tamanna World Family Park’ which is also a nice place. On the other hand, people who want a short drive can have a trip to Zinda Park located in Rupgonj, Narayanganj where they can enjoy the beauty of nature. Another attraction is Hatirjheel that will provide you fresh feeling with its waterbodies, greeneries, connecting bridges and walkways, while places like Dhanmondi Lake, Dhaka University campus and Nila Market situated in Purbachal are common preferences of mass people.

Moreover there are some places in the city that maintain a balance of good food and nice ambience. Capricorn Skywatch restaurant located at 19th floor of the Bashundhara City shopping mall is a good option for them who want to experience a superb view under the open sky with the best quality foods. Moreover ‘Tower Bittersweet’, situated in Gulshan 2, has an aura of casual hip. The place is comfortable, with food items as colourful as its atmosphere. Fool’s Diner located at Road 11, Banani, can be another option. The small and artistically intriguing restaurant has taken Dhaka's foodie circles by storm with its array of Asian cuisines. Kiva Han located in Gulshan 1 is another comfortable place allowing for more privacy and less chances of running into the majority of your friend circle while on a date. Apon Coffee house located in Khilgaon is also a good option for spending excellent time on that special day.

In the meantime it is mentionable that there are some places which should be avoided on Valentine’s Day. Couples should try to avoid overcrowded places in order to stay away from any untoward incident. Moreover the restaurants inside and beside Mirpur Zoo are not safe for the visitors as many types of deception take place there. The very deep jungles of Botanical Garden may also sometimes turn risky for the visitors.

While it’s very important to spend some quality time with your beloved on the Valentine’s Day, it is equally significant to be safe and sound. So try to avoid risky places on that special day rather look for a place where you can express your feelings to your love in a more peaceful way.
