Lovebirds have always faced difficulty in finding new dating places in Kathmandu. The scarcity of dating spots have grown to such extent that they are not even sparing temples and monuments. Also, with passage of time, the couple soon run out of good dating ideas. So, this post is dedicated to offer you with some of the best places for dating like Balaju Baisdhara Park, Nepal’s only Central Zoo, Tundikhel, Godavari Botanical Garden, Tribhuvan Park in Thankot, Chobhar and Taudaha. In lack of dating places around Kathmandu Valley, many couples are forced to fix dating in restaurants. But romantic get-together in restaurants over and over again is not under budget for most of the average Nepalese.
Cheap Date ideas for Nepalese
If dating is your regular thing, have your private moments at parks like Godavari Botanical Garden or Ratna Park or Thankot Park or Baisdhara Park. You can add thrill to your love life by visiting Ramailo Mela, Bhrikutimandap and trying their roller coaster or columbus ride. Alternatively, you can fix dating in roadside cafe and order tea or coffee. If both of you are comfortable, you can even arrange for dating at each other’s house. Spending quality time does not always have to be expensive. You can also book tickets for new movie. Similarly, you can also arrange for going on a morning walk together. A visit to Durbar Squares of Patan, Kathmandu or Bhaktapur or short trip to Tau Daha is also cost effective.
After all, the purpose of dating is to spend the quality time together and show each other that you care. Surrounding has very little to do with the love.
