One of Asia’s most popular honeymoon destinations, Thailand continues to beckon newlyweds to its white shores.
Why honeymoon in Thailand?
Renowned for its beautiful beaches, jungle treks, atmospheric temples, and exotic culture, a Thailand honeymoon makes a fantastic getaway. The level of affordable luxury available means Thailand is also a favourite for couples on a budget.
Things for couples to do
(1 ) Take a trip to Chiang Mai. One of Thailand’s prettiest cities, Chiang Mai also boasts incredible jungle trekking and the Elephant Nature Park, just outside the city.
(2 ) Visit some of Thailand’s gorgeous islands. Koh Phi Phi is probably Thailand’s most beautiful island, famous for being the filming location for Leonardo DiCaprio’s movie The Beach. Koh Tao, Koh Samui, and Koh Phangan are great for couples hoping to go island-hopping.
(3 ) Why not add some extra flavour to your Thailand honeymoon with a few nights in Cambodia or Vietnam.
Best time to honeymoon in Thailand
Between November and March, Thailand is guaranteed to be warm and dry throughout the country, while not too hot and humid. In saying that, if you’re looking to go between April and October there are still lots of options.
The east coast is a good choice for that time of year as the west coast tends to be less predictable. You’ll also benefit from travelling in the quieter season which represents better value for money.
The Loi Krathong – or Festival of Lights – is an incredibly beautiful display that takes place on the full moon of the 12th month every year. Watch as little paper lanterns light up the waterways of Thailand carrying away bad luck and bringing prosperity to the lantern bearer.
