With hundreds of islands lying along two coastlines, karst formations emerging from the water, turquoise seas, and beautiful sunset, Thailand beats any country in Southeast Asia to be a honeymoon paradise for every beach lover. But beaches aren’t all this country can offer for a couple. Thailand also has a few reputational elephant sanctuaries and numerous luxury resorts. It is also called the heaven of street food. That means you will never get enough no matter how long your honeymoon trip to Thailand is.
Most trips to Thailand start at Bangkok. In 2019, this city was voted as the most-visited city in the world with 22.87 million visitors. The capital of Thailand changes in every corner of its streets. From its network of narrow canals, colorful floating markets, sparking temples, vibrant nightlife to busy street food stalls, and fancy nightclubs, there are so many places to discover and romantic things to do on honeymoon. The best way to have the first glimpse of Bangkok is sailing to Chao Phraya River on a private long-tail boat, on which you can easily stop at any place along the river. It could be a solemn temple, the flower market Pak Khlong Talat where you can buy a bunch of 50 beautiful roses with only a few dollars or the charming Thompson House. Hopping on a tuk-tuk is also a great way to get around. The local driver will take you to get around the bustling Chinatown, go shopping at Chatuchak market and floating markets, or spend your whole day walking hand in hand to visit Wat Pho and Wat Arun. Don’t forget to grab some amazing Thai street foods which became more famous than ever when Raan Jay Fai - one of Bangkok’s “street food” restaurants where diners sit at plastic tables by the side of a road- was awarded a Michelin star in 2017. When the dark falls down, it’s time to soak the Bangkok nightlife from the rooftop bar of luxury Banyan Tree Hotel. From the 61st floor, having dinner in the twinkling light of the city is all about romance.

It’s always a never-ending debate between Bangkok supporters vs. Chiang Mai supporters to choose the best city in Thailand. But to first-time visitors, Chiang Mai can seem a little overwhelming with all of its elephant camps, mountains, magnificent Buddhist temples, and Lana ruins. The countless remarkable temples in Chiang Mai are enough for you to make a temple hopping. From the most famous Doi Suthep where enshrines a piece of Buddha’s shoulder bone to Silver Temple with its impressive handcrafted silver decoration, they tell you their own stories and histories of this beautiful land. Chiang Mai is also one of the best places to join a cooking class where you will learn to cook some authentic Thai food. A couple-massage is another must-try activity. Local medical herbs and traditional Lana massage treatment will help to pamper your bodies and caress your minds. Make sure to spend time interacting with the elephant - a precious treasure of this area. These beautiful creatures have been abused from tourism, logging, and human invasion of elephant habitats. Now you can soothe their pain by feeding or bathing them.
