J.Lo accurately stated, “Love don’t cost a thing.” Love may not cost anything but dates do. Especially in this day and age where there is no such thing as being on a budget anymore. However, since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, we decided to give it a shot anyway. With that being said, let’s browse through a few budget-friendly date ideas for all you love birds out there.
Meal for two
A charming and ambient place, Trouvaille opens its arms to fancy luncheons and romantic dinners for all; that too at a reasonable price. Whether it’s a starter, rice or a curry dish, your expenses will be covered under Tk 1,000. Throw in an extra Tk 300 for an Oreo cheesecake to make things perfect.
Put some clay on it
Dhaka has long been accused of not having any fun activities aside from hanging out in restaurants and coffee shops, so we decided to only include one restaurant to prove the haters wrong. Clay Station is the perfect example of the nouveau activities the city has to offer. For Tk 1500, you can bring your imaginations to life and make something precious for your loved one or recreate a PG version of that iconic scene from Ghost.
An adventure of a lifetime
The first ever escape room in Dhaka is actually a very fun idea for a date. Not only does Escape Myst offer something new and different but you can totally find out what your significant other is really made of, as they solve puzzles and overcome various challenges along with you. At Tk 500 per person, it seems like an absolute steal. Oh, and did we tell you they have a Game of Thrones themed challenge? Time to find out if they are really your Khal or Khaleesi!
Speaking of something new and different, ice skating is something unfamiliar to us but thanks to Star Cineplex Bashundhara, we have Star Zone that allows us to try this sport for fun. They say you never forget your first time so why not try something new together? Two hours of skating will only set you back Tk 300 per person.
