Best Places To Visit In Thailand For Honeymoon

  • Thailand is one of the best places to go for a honeymoon vacation. This South-East Asian Paradise is home to some of the most beautiful locations in the world. You can choose from the popular Phuket or Koh Samui to the less popular yet exotic Koh Lipe. Thailand is also well connected by air, road and water making it easy to navigate between the different places and landforms. Let us look at some of the best places to visit in Thailand for a Honeymoon.


    Phuket for a long time has been the go-to destination for sun loungers who want to fill their life with sunshine. The amazing beaches and the warm weather make it a perfect place to unwind and relax. When we add in world-class resorts and restaurants, luxury pool beach villas, spas and rejuvenation spots into the mix, it makes it a perfect destination for couples to retreat away for a special vacation.

    There are so many things to do in Phuket that you are hardly going to have a tough time to pass with. Right from water sports to island cruises to temple and cultural visits, Phuket is completely action-packed. The culture shows and the beachside candlelight dinners enable you to spruce up your honeymoon vacation. If you are someone who is a party animal or just a mild social party person, Phuket has a place for both the types. Phuket has pubs where you can party all night and at the same time chill at a beachside bar and sip on your long island.

    Phuket also accommodates the adventure junkies like no other. It is a go-to place for Scuba diving, bungee jumping, Snorkeling, Zip-lining and the list goes on and on. Phuket essentially has everything in one place for a perfect vacation.

    The best way to reach Phuket is via air. You can land at the Phuket International Airport and reach the city centre in 20 to 30 minutes. You can also come via Bangkok. Phuket is a well-connected airport with major places in South East Asia.

    Koh Samui

    If you are saving up for a luxury honeymoon getaway in South East Asia, Koh Samui is one of the best places you could go to. Koh Samui is a smooth cocktail of luxury, nature, privacy and amenities. Koh Samui is a renowned honeymoon destination in Thailand. It is also a go-to destination for the locals and the affluent lot. If you are someone who is into partying, Koh Samui is a great place to go to.

    Despite the great development of luxury and amenities that have been happening in Koh Samui, the vegetation, the forests and nature blissfully coexist with the development making it a perfect place for a luxury getaway. The perfect way to spend an unforgettable late afternoon in Koh Samui is by sipping your coconut water on a hammock by the beachside and hanging out with your partner and maybe catching a movie. 

    Once you have completely experienced beach life during the day, you can dress up and head out for a proper night out. Take a stroll through the night markets, have dinner at a romantic cafe, watch fire shows and if you are someone who loves partying you should head to one of the crazy beach parties. The best way to reach Koh Samui is by air. You can hop on a direct flight from Bangkok and reach the island destination in about an hour. You can also take a flight to Surat Thani and then take a ferry ride of 1.5 to 2 hours. 

    Koh Lipe

    Koh Lipe has been Thailand's closely guarded secret for many decades. Koh Lipe is the exotic Thai Island that is a paradise that’s hidden away. Off late travellers have taken notice of this destination, with ocean resorts and luxury getaways cropping up as the day goes by. While Koh Lipe is a small island, it has all the amenities and essentials that are needed for a peaceful retreat on your special vacation. The sandy beaches merge with the electric blue waters and make for a beautiful setting.

    The local restaurants serve delicious local delicacies and the lush green forests make for the perfect backdrop for the beaches. One of the best things about Koh Lipe is the fact that it is a part of a National Park. And as it is a protected area, nature is preserved in all of its glory. The waters are brimming with local fishes and corals. This is one of the best places to go for a Scuba Dive in all of Thailand. If you are looking for a truly out of the box honeymoon vacation, this is your place to go.

    The best way to reach Koh Lipe is to take a flight to Hat Yai. From Hat Yai, Koh Lipe is 3 to 4 hours away by a bus and a ferry ride. 

    Koh Samet

    Koh Samet was initially a typical backpackers island retreat. It was the quintessential nomad land until a couple of years ago. Now, Koh Samet is developing into becoming a proper vacation destination that is competing with Phuket and Koh Samui as a premier island getaway. One of the main advantages is that it is much quieter than both of the other islands. The increase in the number of luxury retreats and the proximity to Bangkok makes it for a perfect fast weekend getaway.

    If you are a beach junkie, Koh Samet is a perfect place for you. It has long stretches of beaches, some filled with beach shacks and bars and the others into privacy and solitude. As the night comes on, there are some beach venues for barbecues and fire juggling shows. One of the best ways to explore the island is to hire a moped and go on a ride. Koh Samet is filled with viewpoints and unadulterated views of the vistas. A swim in the ocean and a massage by the pool is a perfect evening. 

    Koh Lanta

    Koh Lanta is one of Thailand's secret nooks hidden at the end of a national park in a protected area. It is a perfect place to kayak through the smooth waters, go for a dive or lounge on the mellow beaches. It is to be noted that The Sunday Time rated it as one of the best beaches in the world. Koh Lanta has all the amenities for a secluded beach getaway. It is home to many beach villas, pool villas and world-famous spas. The island is home to some lovely beach bars and it is a perfect place to catch a sunset as you sip on your cocktail. 

    Koh Lanta has some of the best underwater visibility and is a great place to go for a scuba dive. The bright corals and the marine life in the dive sites are some of the worlds best. The best way to reach Koh Lanta is via Krabi. You can take a flight from Bangkok to Krabi which is about an hour or so. From Krabi, a ferry ride to Koh Lanta is about a 2 to 3-hour journey.
