Candlelight dinner shines

WHILE flowers may be the popular romantic gift for Valentine’s Day one of the most romantic ways to spend it together is with a candlelight dinner for two.

Throughout Cambodia from the capital to the beachfront, the islands to the countryside couples look at spending a special evening together with a romantic setting, candlelight, soft music and fine food.

It provides quiet, quality time in an atmosphere of togetherness that you will long remember and many hotels and restaurants put on fine Valentine’s Day celebration dinners with special menus, music and dancing.

You can always find a place that suits you both, quiet and intimate, dim lights and a holding-hands atmosphere or more lively with dancing, bands and groups providing the music together with drinking and celebration perhaps not just alone but with friends.

Restaurants are busy all over the towns and cities with dance parties, discotheques and balls organised by many clubs and hotels.

Whether it is a restaurant or a park, a quiet hotel or a plush one or just looking out across the river at night with a picnic and a bottle of champagne a Valentine’s Day atmosphere can be created.

And why go far from home? Enjoy organising your own candlelit dinner, get your favourite foods, prepare and cook them yourself, create your own togetherness and romantic atmosphere.

A Valentine’s Day dinner for two always becomes a special memory.
