It’s no secret that Thailand is one of the most perfect places in the world to have your honeymoon. Not only is it incredibly beautiful, but it’s filled with culture and food that you won’t be able to forget anytime soon. However, the most important part of Thailand is that it is incredibly romantic, making it ideal for newlyweds looking for a unique post nuptial getaway.
To show you just why Thailand is such a wonderful place for a honeymoon, we’ve compiled a list of 7 Must-Do Things for the Ultimate Dreamy Honeymoon in Thailand:
1. Eat a Romantic Dinner at Sala Rattanakosin in Bangkok
A romantic dinner might seem like an obvious pick for a couple on their honeymoon, but Sala Rattanakosin is much more than just a fine dining experience. Set alongside the ChaoPhraya river and across from the Wat Arun temple, this restaurant provides one of the most luxurious views you can see in the entire of Bangkok. If you want to get the most out of your time here, we recommend you make a reservation for just before sunset. However, this will also be the busiest time of the day to make a reservation, so act quickly!
On top of the beautiful views, you can treat yourself and your spouse to the fine dining menu filled with fusion foods that will make your mouth water. Despite our recommendation that you go at sunset, this restaurant has wonderful menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so you’ll be sure to have some delicious food no matter when you’re there!
2. Go to Phang Nga Bay for a Boat Trip
This unique group of islands are some of the most beautiful natural wonders you can find in Thailand. If you’re looking for a day trip that will allow you to stay in touch with some of the traditional Thai culture, you should go to these islands. In particular, we recommend taking one of the day long boat trips that can take you from island to island, showing you the various local cuisine and celebrations. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to make this a daytrip, though—if you go on the tourist-filled boat during the day, then you should have a romantic night to yourselves at one of the area’s hotels.
3. Find the Perfect Thai Massage
One of the most relaxing things you can do as newlyweds is to get a Thai massage together. There are many different places to do this around Thailand, but we recommend going to Phuket’s Sri panwa, as it is very affordable while still being luxurious. You also get a great value for your dollar there!
4. Visit the Ancient City
If you’re a couple that enjoys learning about history, then you will love what Thailand has to offer. For example, the Ancient City is a great example of completely antiquated architecture that is still well-preserved, giving you a good vision of the lifestyle that occurred in ancient times. Learning about history is also a great way to reflect about your history as a couple, thinking about the impact you want to make on the world and what your roles are in humanity.
5. See Beautiful Architecture at the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall
Those looking to see one of the best examples of modern-day Thai architecture should immediately head to the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall. This is beautiful palace that was originally built in 1915, though now it represents an important glimpse into what royal life once looked like in Thailand. On top of the beautiful architecture, there is also a beautiful garden outside of the hall that is perfect for taking honeymoon photos!
6. Have a Romantic Bath at Kashikiri Soda Onsen
There’s truly nothing like a traditional Japanese onsen bath. This type of natural hot spring bath is perfect for couples who want an intimate, romantic setting that will also help them boost their overall health!
7. Get Scared at Mansion 7 Bangkok
Though many people might assume that honeymoons are always supposed to be lovey-dovey, we disagree. Sometimes the most exciting things you can do as a couple are also the things that will bring you closer together. Going through a haunted house is always a great way to become intimate in a unique way, encouraging you to hold each other’s hand as you maneuver the intimidating halls. This is why Mansion 7 Bangkok is a great honeymoon destination!
