If you fancy something a little different, the capital city of Bangkok and further north may not seem like the most romantic places to go, but trust me, they could make your honeymoon special! Why not visit them all while you’re in the country?
Here are my top 7 most romantic spots in Thailand and why they would make incredible honeymoon destinations.
1. Koh Samui
Koh Samui is probably one of the most popular islands in southern Thailand. It’s also one of the biggest islands and is known for having a good mix of nightlife and tranquility. It’s really tourist-friendly, so there are heaps of beautiful resorts and restaurants - perfect for relaxing with your newly-wed, knowing that everything will be taken care of for you.
Get there: The most convenient way to get to Koh Samui is to fly from Bangkok, but you could also fly from Phuket or Pattaya. If you want to take the cheaper and more scenic (but more time-consuming) route, you can also take a ferry from Surat Thani.
Stay: Banyan Tree Samui, Vana Belle, Erawan Villa Hotel
Eat: Dining on the Rocks, Treetops Sky Dining, The View Restaurant
Do: Visit the Big Buddha shrine and get bestowed with blessings, swim in the spectacular Namuang Waterfalls, go to Ang Thong National Marine Park
Pai is a small town nestled in the hilltops of northern Thailand, about 3 hours drive from Chiang Mai. It may not seem like the most obvious spot for a honeymoon if you’ve got your heart set on beaches, but trust me, this is one of the most beautiful places in Thailand and can definitely be just as romantic as the white sandy beaches.
Explore the town by scooter and cruise through the lush green jungle, discover hidden water falls, take in stunning views and dine at riverside restaurants lit up with fairy lights. It’s a side of Thailand that’s definitely worth seeing!
Get there: The easiest way to reach Pai is to fly to Chiang Mai from Bangkok and then jump on one of the regular minibusses that go from Chiang Mai to Pai. If you stop in Chiang Mai, you can easily book the bus through your hotel or a local vendor.
A tip: The 3-hour drive has a LOT of twists and turns, so be sure to sit up front if you’re prone to car sickness!
Stay: PuriPai Villa, Pai Island Resort, Hotel des Artists
Eat: Silhouette Restaurant & Bar, Le Reve De Pai, Om Garden Cafe
Do: Visit Pai Canyon, swim in Mo Paeng Waterfall, see the Chinese Village at the top of the hill and take in the stunning view from the top
Again, the lively city of Bangkok may not seem like the most romantic spot in Thailand. However, there are so many opportunities for romance here! This cosmopolitan setting has so much to see and do and it’s easy to find luxury here.
Go on a cruise, dine in a fancy restaurant, sip cocktails from a rooftop bar and take in the city skyline at night. Plus, there is so much culture here so you can learn and experience years-old traditions together.
You’ll likely have to pass through Bangkok on your trip to Thailand anyway, so why not make the most of it?
Get there: Most international flights will go through Bangkok - Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) is the international airport. Public transport is really well connected here so everything is easily accessible from the airport.
Stay: Praya Palazzo, Bangkok Treehouse, Mandarin Oriental
Eat: SEEN Restaurant & Bar, Thara Thong, basil
Do: Pamper your beloved with a shopping spree, visit the Grand Palace and many other Buddhist temples, dine at some of the world’s finest rooftop restaurants, take a Thai cooking class.
4. Similan Islands
Situated in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Phang Nga Province, the Similan Islands comprise nine small islands that form the Similan Archipelago.
These beautiful islands are most famous for their amazing diving sites, especially on island number 7, where submerged boulders, archways, and exotic marine life can be seen.
Relax on some of Thailand’s most pristine beaches, complete with soft white sand and crystal blue water. Hike hand in hand with your love and spot an array of wildlife, including birds, lizards and small mammals. The dream!
Get there: It is possible to fly straight from Bangkok to the Similan Islands, although this can be quite expensive. The longer but cheaper option is to fly or get the train to Ranong or Khao Lak and then get a ferry from there to the islands.
Stay: Palm Galleria Resort, Devasom Khao Lak Beach Resort & Villas, Eden Beach Resort and Spa
Eat: Amici Italian Bistro, Takrai Thai Restaurant, Baan Srimuang
Do: Scuba dive, snorkel, swim, hike, and get out in nature!
