I personally spent five weeks in Thailand in late 2017, and I experienced firsthand the beauty, adventure, culture, and tasty delights that the country has to offer. One of my favorite parts of Thailand is that it was incredibly affordable– from the accommodations to the food, to the adventures! I had such an amazing time there that I was over-the-moon when The Tourism Authority of Thailand asked me to share some of my experience as well as a fantastic contest for one lucky couple to win a free Thailand Honeymoon!
There are so many adventurous options to take advantage of in Thailand. Whether you love hiking, boating, skydiving, visiting the waterfalls, or just visiting the elephants at the Elephant Sanctuary, Thailand is the perfect choice for those who want a bit of adventure mixed into their honeymoon.
If relaxation is what you’re looking for, you can certainly find it in Thailand. Unplug from the outside world and give yourself an electronic detox. Indulge in affordable massagues and other spa therapies, take a dip in the ocean or a serene pool. The weather hardly ever gets lower than 70 degrees so it’s a perfect year-round destination!
Thailand is definitely known for it’s amazing food– it was definitely a highlight of my time in the country. Thai food is fresh and flavorful and delicious. I became obsessed with papaya salad, and I ate lots of fresh seafood in my time there. There are many culinary delights to be experienced and enjoyed, and I definitely recommend doing a street food tour and a cooking class during your visit!
From shopping in the popular night markets for souvenirs and gifts to exploring one of the country’s gorgeous temples, there are so many options to experience local culture. Attending dance shows, experiencing the local nightlife, and taking classes are a great way to immerse yourself in the local culture of Thailand!
There are so many different beaches to explore in this incredible country! Thailand actually has hundreds of islands, but one thing the region is known for is the crystal blue clear water and white sand beaches. And the weather there is amazing all year round, so that makes it ideal no matter when you’re traveling.
If it’s romance you seek, you will absolutely find it in Thailand. From romantic beachside dinners to dancing under the moonlight, to witnessing the majesty of the lantern festival in November, there are so many unique and beautiful options for infusing romance into your honeymoon.
