Choosing the location for your Honeymoon can be a bit of a mind field. Unless you have always had your heart set on a destination, when you start to look at different places it can become a little bit over whelming. So to add to that have you thought about traveling to Thailand on your honeymoon?
Thailand is often thought of as a backpackers stop off, which often it is however it is also so very much more. Offering those beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise sea, luxury accommodation and amazing food, I truly believe it could be the prefect location for your honeymoon. I have put together my top 5 honeymoon locations in Thailand.
Phi Phi is a collection of islands located to the west of Phuket, and only accessible by boat. Making it the perfect romantic get away. Phi Phi is a relaxed island, with beautiful sandy beaches and clear turquoise sea, paradise at it’s best. Phi Phi offers many different types of accommodation from budget to luxury hotels, there is also a variety of restaurants and bars for the evenings. Phi Phi not only is a stunning collection of islands it also offers plenty for you to do, including amazing snorkelling, shark watching tours, rock climbing not various boat trips. Phi Phi is popular with people popping over for a couple of nights, why not book one of the many luxury hotels for a couple of nights of paradise before heading back to mainland Thailand.
Karbi is a collection of small islands located around 400 miles south of Bangkok. The islands not only have those stunning beaches and turquoise sea, there are also lime stone cliffs for those who love to rock climb and rainforests, with a wealth of historic monuments to visits. The islands are home to many small fishing villages where you are able to taste lots of local produce. With numerous different excursions to take part in you will never be short of something new to do while staying in Karbi.
Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s oldest resorts, it offers something slightly different with a real mix of old world charm and modern living. The beaches in Hua Hin are as beautiful as the smaller islands, with water sports being very popular in this area. Of course there are plenty of adventures to be had in Hua Hin, with caves and waterfalls to explore. As Hua Hin is a fishing town there are so many restaurants for you to be able to try the catch of the day not forgetting the traditional Thai food. Hua Hin is a great place for you to visit while on honeymoon with various accommodation types to fit your budget.
Staying in Khao Lak gets you away from the busier resorts in Thailand, like most of the resorts it offers beautiful beaches, fabulous restaurants and accommodation types to suit any budget. One thing that makes Khao Lak a must have visit for me, is that it is located near to the Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park. Giving you the chance to see wildlife at home in its natural environment, elephants, tropical birds, monkeys and so much more. If you are planning on doing some island hoping Khao Lak is a great place to start with regular boats leaving to various islands. Why not use Khao Lak as your base and spend a few days visiting the different islands.
Koh Samui is the third largest off the islands of the east coast of the main land. Koh Samui is becoming increasing popular with honeymooners, an island that offers everything you could wish for. Beautiful beaches, fishing villages, luxury hotels and history with various Buddhist monuments and temples around the island. If like me your partner is more interested in exploring the island and the cuisine than reading a book on the beach or by the pool, then Koh Samui would be perfect for you as it offers both. Take a boat to out to the marine national park to see the conservation work that is happening to protect the marine life around Koh Samui.
All of these locations offer just about everything you could possibly want from a Honeymoon, activities, relaxation, luxury and not forgetting making amazing memories. Which of my top picks would you chose for your Honeymoon to Thailand?
