Ultimate Thailand Honeymoon

With a fascinating culture, buzzing capital and quiet, pristine beaches, it comes to no surprise that Thailand is a great honeymoon destination. This 2.5 week itinerary is the ultimate Thailand honeymoon which will take you from Chiang Mai, the Golden Triangle, Phuket and its islands and Bangkok. A mix of adventure and relaxation are the makings of a great honeymoon, and this is what you will experience with your special someone.

Day 1: Arrival into Bangkok

Welcome to Thailand! Upon arrival, you will be met by a representative and transferred to your hotel for check-in. The remainder of the day is at leisure. If you’re not too tired from your journey, indulge in a river cruise aboard the hotel’s beautifully restored Peninsula Rice Barge and catch a glimpse of the capital’s riverside life.

 

Stay: The Peninsula Bangkok

Day 2: Day at leisure to explore Bangkok

Nicknamed the Venice of the East, Bangkok offers a plethora of cultural activities for you to experience. The Grand Palace is a good place to start, followed by Wat Pho and of course indulging in delicious local cuisine.

 

Stay: The Peninsula Bangkok

Day 3: From Bangkok to Chiang Mai

Today, you will depart from Bangkok and make your way to Chiang Mai. Once you arrived at the airport, you will be met by a representative and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure for you to either enjoy the hotel’s facilities or venture off into Chiang Mai.

Day 4: Chiang Mai Heritage Discovery

Start off the day aboard a long tail boat, from where you will enjoy the picturesque historical sites along the Ping River. You will then explore Wiang Kum Kam (the Lost City), which for 200 years was buried under layers of earth due to frequent flooding. You can choose to explore the temples by foot or bicycle.

After lunch, at a local restaurant, you will visit Chiang Mai’s highlight hilltop temples, Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep.

Day 5: From Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai

You will start your day with an early morning rise to experience something unique: the daily alms giving ceremony. This is a Buddhist procession where dozens of monks walk barefoot through the streets collecting food and everyday items before heading into the temple to pray. Then, make your way to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and climb the 309 steps of the Golden Naga staircase. You will then experience your own private blessing ceremony.

Once you’ve had lunch, you will be transferred to Chiang Rai by private vehicle. The drive takes approximately 4 hours.
