Honeymoons in Thailand

Finding a honeymoon location to suit you both as a couple can sometimes be a tricky task but Thailand with it's mixture of bustling cities, small villages, stunning scenery, tasty food, gorgeous beaches and friendly people will surely tick most of the boxes. Why not combine bustling Bangkok with a laid back break in Phuket or Koh Samui with its gorgeous beaches, national parks, and forests and waterfalls.

Thailand known as the “land of the smiles” is a very romantic and exciting country to visit for a honeymoon. With flights from South Africa taking just over 17 hours you could soon be exploring this exotic part of the world. Experience the chaos of Bangkok and take a ride in a tuk tuk, if you dare, feast on the delicious street food, and enjoy a foot massage when you're feeling footsore. Enjoy a ride on boat along Chao Praya River which runs through Bangkok and opens up areas which you probably wouldn't otherwise see. Feast on the delicious street food, watch the sunset, and visit a show where the flamboyant lady girls never fail to impress. Once you tire of Bangkok, take a trip south to Phuket and soak up the rays on the gorgeous beaches, or snorkel or dive the clear waters. However you spend your time, a honeymoon in Thailand will give you enough memories to last a lifetime.
