Honeymoons in Thailand

When you think of Thailand, what’s the first image that comes to mind? Spectacular limestone islands rising from a turquoise sea? Golden beaches where you and your new spouse can enjoy private beach walks? Or the world-famous street food, shopping and bright lights of Bangkok? Thailand is all of these things, and more. Certainly, the 1,500 miles of spectacular coast has made it a top destination for honeymoons, but the ‘Land of Smiles’ offers such a variety of attractions that holidays here can be tailor-made to perfectly reflect your tastes. So you can combine your big ideas with the expertise of Travelbag’s advisors to create your dream honeymoon. Luxury accommodation can be found right by the sea, deep in the rainforest or surrounded by the country’s iconic paddy fields. Choose from decadent suites in fashionable Hua Hin or opt for serene beach shacks in a peaceful, private spots. There are no less than 130 islands in Krabi province. Phuket is famous for its scuba diving, while Koh Samui has a winning mix of pristine coastline and buzzing nightlife. Hua Hin has a range of golf courses, and the northern region of Thailand is known for its spectacular scenery and away-from-it-all vibes. Koh Tao is a magnet for honeymooners looking for underwater adventures, and Koh Lipe is known as the ‘Maldives of Thailand’. 

Why choose a Honeymoon in Thailand?

So, what will it be? Two weeks of simply eating, swimming in the sea and unwinding on the beach, or an action-packed itinerary combining Bangkok, Buddhist temples and national parks? Whatever your dream holiday consists of, your honeymoon is the very best time to turn your big ideas into reality. Most people who visit Thailand fall completely in love with the country. It’s also the only South-East Asian country that was never colonised by Europeans, which makes it a unique treasure trove of ancient cultural monuments and traditions. In fact, its name in the Thai language is ‘Prathet Thai’ meaning ‘the land of the free’. The peaceful practices of Buddhism are evident everywhere, from the ubiquitous flower-festooned shrines to the common sight of saffron-robed monks. Thai people are renowned for their friendliness and heart-warming hospitality and, to top it all off, the weather is fantastic.

Things to see and do in Thailand

Shopping in Bangkok

Did you know, Bangkok’s official name is so long that it wouldn’t fit in a tweet? It translates as, ‘City of Angels, Great City of Immortals, Magnificent city of the nine gems, seat of the king, city of royal palaces, home of gods incarnate, erected by Visvakarman at Indra’s behest’. Known locally by the slightly snappier name of ‘Krungthep’, Bangkok is the most-visited megalopolis in the world. It’s also the hottest city in the world, maintaining year-round temperatures of over thirty degrees Celsius, and getting even hotter from March to June. Perhaps most surprising of all, though, is the city’s amount of shopping opportunities. Thailand’s capital has every shopping experience you can think of, with enormous malls, flower markets, floating food stalls, the world’s largest weekend market – with 15,000 different vendors – night markets and, of course, endless street food stalls.

Nature and Wildlife

Thailand is a nature-lover’s paradise, with warm seas, golden beaches and pristine jungles. Northern Thailand is famous for its beautiful hardwood forests, and the country has one tenth of the world’s bird species – that’s more birds than America and Europe combined. Alongside its 5,000 elephants, Thailand is home to the world’s smallest mammal – the bumblebee bat – and the largest fish on the planet – the whale shark. There’s no shortage of monkeys, either. One of the more unusual festivals is the annual Monkey Buffet, where these cheeky creatures feast on a gigantic banquet. You might know that Thailand used to be called Siam, and it’s from here that Siamese cats originate. The cat’s local name means ‘moon diamond’ and a pair of these pretty cats is considered to be a lucky wedding present – maybe something to add to your gift list?

Thai Temples

In the past, all Thai men – including royalty – had to spend a period of time as a Buddhist monk, before turning 20. Although this is no longer compulsory, men who’ve spent time as a monk are still considered to be the most eligible bachelors in Thai society. Buddhism is practised by 95 per cent of the population – the country is home to around 35,000 temples. The Great Buddha of Thailand makes it into the world’s top ten largest statues at number nine, and the Phra Pathom Chedi takes the prize for the highest stupa in the world. Thailand is also home to the planet’s largest golden Buddha. Found at Wat Traimit Temple, this grand statue is the seventh-tallest in the world. If you want to visit any of Thailand’s temples, make sure you wear respectful clothing to cover your shoulders and knees.
