We’ve sent a number of clients to Thailand recently and have honeymooners that we just booked for next summer. We included some very neat experiences for them— all based on what they were most interested in.
Most of our clients only stay a couple of days in Bangkok but the Grand Palace is a must see. We also recommend a Floating Market Rose Garden tour for clients to see something unique to the region. About 70 miles from Bangkok, you can see the everyday life at the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, where vendors sell their produce out of canoes along the river.
Jennifer and Jason wanted to to see wild life— not just ride an elephant, they wanted to be interact with elephants and tigers and we were able to include 2 very special days for them while in Chiang Mai.
Their first is a full day adventure at the Elephant Nature Park where they are going to meet and feed the elephants before heading for a walk with them. After lunch, they’ll bathe the elephants in the river. This isn’t about riding an elephant at all but rather, being with them and letting the elephants enjoy their day with you in a safe environment. This full day experience is called Pamper a Pachyderm.
Their next experience is a combination of visiting and interacting with tigers and then visiting a tribe of Long Necked Hilltop people. In the first part at the Tiger Kingdom, they’ll get to spend 10 minutes touching, playing with and taking photos of baby tiger cubs, then small tigers (5-10 months old) and then those that are about a year old and then that are up to 3 years old. From there, they are heading to visit a village of Padong Long-necked Hilltop people and how they live their normal lives.
We also arranged a visit to another relatively remote hilltop village and then a trip to the most sacred temple in northern Thailand- Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. We hope it’s a clear day so they’ll be able to see panoramic views of the city of Chiang Mai from the temple grounds.
Some of our other clients have enjoyed cooking classes in Chiang Mai and others have spent sunrise with the monks before continuing up the mountain to the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep Temple where you can climb up 309 steps or take a tram to the top of the main temple complex. Others enjoy riding elephants and then taking a river rafting tour.
Nothing ends a vacation or honeymoon to Thailand like a beach stay and Phuket, Koh Samui and Krabi are some of the top beach destinations in Thailand.
Take a speed boat from Phuket to the Phi Phi Islands (great for watersports and snorkeling in caves and lagoons). Kho Phil Phil Leh is the island where Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Beach was filmed in 2000.
OR, if you are a James Bond fan, check out his island– in Phang Nga Bay where the Man with the Golden Gun was filmed.
Learn about Thai culture and make a Kratong (a floating flower arrangement) after spending the day snorkeling in and out of caves and hongs.
From Koh Samui, go sea kayaking at Angthong National Marine Park or go snorkeling at the Turtle Island (Kho Tao)
If you want a crazy party night life, check out the Full Moon Parties on Koh Phangan Island. This all night beach party can host a few thousand of party crazy people.
