Most couples go on their honeymoons right after marriage because they would be tired after their wedding, not to mention the time and energy they spent preparing for it. Now it’s time to be together without any interruptions to relax, bond, and venture into new places together as husband and wife.
If you want to look for a honeymoon that’s a bit more exotic than the Caribbean but fills with tropical fun to let go of the stress and get comfortable together, Thailand should be a wonderful destination. And here are 10 reasons why.
A honeymoon trip to Thailand is like stepping into a world of nature and culture. Its chaotic energy of it will ignite every sense from within. This country is where awe-inspiring landscapes meet white sandy beaches with bustling cities and ancient temples in between. Beyond the beautiful setting, this Southeast Asian country should also be a heaven-on-earth place for anyone who loves great meals - Thai food is irresistible when eaten at the source.
Any lovebirds who love vitamin “sunshine” can head north to the lands of pristine mountains, rice paddies, thick tropical forests, and Buddhist temples. Chiang Mai, founded in 1296, is still retaining ancient signs of rich history and colorful hill tribes. Not too far away, Chiang Rai is another mountainous destination worth visiting. Alongside the must-see Wat Rong Khun temple, Chiang Rai is close enough to the border of Myanmar to take a day trip.

There are countless islands of all shapes and sizes in Thailand. Although each is charming in its way, the most gorgeous places are Koh Samui, Phuket, Koh Yao Noi, Koh Lanta, and Krabi, thanks to their turquoise water, glamorous beaches, rich marine life, coconut groves, beautiful hiking trails, and dramatic sunset. Swimming, sunbathing, kayaking, taking day trips to visit many uninhabited small islands and caves, walking hand-in-hand along the sandy beach at sunset, or simply cuddling up together at one of the over-the-top resorts, you’ll never run out of loved up things to do.

As the honeymoon is the first of your trip together, romantic things will make your bond, and come close. Thailand knows very well how to turn your honeymoon into unforgettable memories. You can take a sunset cruise either on the iconic Chao Phraya River in Bangkok or on an island. Want a romantic dinner? They can set up a table for duo dining with candlelit, and flowers on a luxury cruise, on the beach under the starry sky, in a beautiful garden, in the jungle, or near the waterfall. 5-star resorts provide a double day-bed, bathtub with rose petals, and rim big enough to hold champagne glasses. When you’re in Thailand, the limits are only your imagination.

Surrounded by breathtaking nature, here, you’ll find flawless service, gourmet dining, world-class wine, a top-notch Spa, and ultimate privacy as you enjoy villas with private infinity pools and glamorous ocean views
With its vibrant food scenes, Thailand is one of the best options for foodie couples to satisfy their appetites. Savoring good food is the ultimate joy of being in Thailand. Just only in Bangkok, over 12,000 vendors sell mouthwatering flavors that give you a taste sensation of sweet, sour, salty, savory, and spicy. Share a crisp crunchy Som Tam and a masterpiece Tom Yum Gang soup at a night market or head out in the morning to one of many colorful floating markets (highly recommended) and delight in these delectable flavors. You might also want to spend your quality time at a cooking class to have the best Thai recipe.
Head north or venture down south, stroll in the city, or drive to the mountain, Buddist temples are seen everywhere in Thailand. It’s easy to understand because Buddhism in Thailand is practiced by 94.6% of the population. Thousands of Thai temples, large or small, fill up with history, mystery stories, and beautiful stupas and statues. If you don’t have time to visit all, (of course you can’t, there are more than 40,000 of them) Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun in Bangkok as well as Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, Wat Chedi Luang in Chiang Mai, White Temple in Chiang Rai are unmissable sites with interesting history, intricate architectures, and giant Buddha statues
Thailand has become one of the most favorite countries in Asia and for good reasons. Its sceneries are some of the most gorgeous that you’ve ever seen. From a Chiang Mai sit in the valley of a forested mountain, deep green tea plantations lining the mountainous roads of Chiang Rai, to the brilliant blue water and dramatic rock outcroppings of Phuket and a stunning sunset over Koh Lanta (photo), Thailand is no wonder a dream of every photographer.
The elephant is the national animal of Thailand. These majestic beasts are loved by locals and tourists alike. Close interaction with elephants can be one of the most memorable experiences in your honeymoon trip to Thailand. While there might be no chance to see elephants in the wild, wonderful sanctuaries are established to care for them. These elephant farms offer forest areas for the elephant to roam around as well as rivers to bathe and cool down. Here, you can learn to take care of the animal, make their food, approach them closely, bathe them, walk with them to the jungle, and ease the pain they’ve suffered in the past (Photo: Two baby elephants in Pantara Elephant Camp)
Amazingly organized in its chaos, the floating markets in an iconic attraction in Bangkok. Packed with women wearing ngob (Thai traditional hat) maneuvering along the busy canal on small boats, colorful fruits and vegetables, and delicious Thai food, visitors find these places full of life. The most famous market is Damnoen Saduak. Once you get on the winding waterway, there is plenty of delicious food to try, from fresh coconut water to a bowl of noodles submerged in rich meaty broth. Damnoen Saduak is great for photo opportunities and guarantees a floating market experience.
