Thailand and the Maldives are two exciting destinations that make the ideal honeymoon destinations. Offering much more than a fortnight in Europe ever good, the emphasis here is on the gorgeous weather and the privacy and luxury you need for the most important holiday of your life.
From moonlit dinners on the beach to days spent on an uninhabited island. The seclusion that you get when you book holidays in Maldives is so romantic that it couldn’t be better for a honeymoon. The islands’ all boast excellent conditions for snorkelling and scuba diving and you’ll be able to see as close as 50 metres in front. Pair this trip with a quiet boat trip, where you can anchor at the sunset and watch the sky turn pink together.
When booking holidays to Thailand, Phuket, Koh Samui and Bangkok are three of the best destinations. You get so much more for your money visiting Thailand than you would if you honeymooned somewhere in Europe. Most people fly into Bangkok and spend a few days exploring the city, and a great way to do this is by hopping on the local river taxi. Cheaper than an organised tour boat, you can ride the full length of the river, stopping off anywhere you like. The main attractions in Bangkok include the Grand Palace, which leaves visitors in awe of its grandeur and intricate architecture.
Do try to visit Khaosan Road (the backpacking district) if you have time. It’s so vastly different from the rest of the city and the food served at the hawker stalls, such as cheap pad thai and sweet mango with sticky rice, is delicious.
While in Thailand, heading to one of the islands is a definite must. You won’t experience such luxury for such affordable prices anywhere else! In Koh Samui, the hotels are top quality, with cocktails served around the pool, and fresh fruit galore. For some insanely cheap pampering, head into the town and take advantage of the full body massages, scrubs, manicures and much more for a fraction of the price as back home.
