Places to visit in Thailand for honeymoon

Last Updated: October 29,2019

This is how we would spend our honeymoon in Thailand after experiencing these amazing places as a local living in Thailand. Adjust it to suit your style and choose your honeymoon destination according to your taste and interest.

While planning your honeymoon in Thailand, keep one thing in mind. Don't add too many destinations, but really enjoy the places you visit. We recommend that you do not plan more than four destinations on your honeymoon, as travel time between cities will be far away from your honeymoon. This is what we look like on our perfect honeymoon in Thailand.

Koh Samui

If you are on a honeymoon, Koh Samui can certainly be a very crazy romantic destination. The island has all the assets of an exceptionally idyllic place to stay with your loved one.  By day, take a boat trip to the idyllic Koh Tao – one of the most sought-after scuba-diving sites in Thailand – and go kayaking around the mangroves of Ang Thong Marine Park, and by night, stroll through the Fisherman's Village in Bophut with its eclectic mix of boutiques, restaurants, bars and street vendors. On the seashore, music and revellers from the beachside bars and restaurants spill onto the sand as lanterns float up into the sky. Koh Samui is also a hotshot party destination known for its mind-blowing full moon parties in nearby Koh Phangan. Some of the biggest beach parties are held in Koh Samui which lasts all night. Many of the most popular romantic hotels in Samui also provide wedding services, in case you want bent knees to your honey.

How to get there:

Koh Samui is an isolated island away from the main land, so it's required to get there by plane from Bangkok, Phuket or Chiang Mai, around 1.5 hours. You need to transfer flight if flying from other cities.

Koh Phi Phi

Honeymoon on the island is better than many other honeymoon plans, especially in Asia. Koh Phi Phi was started by Leonardo Dicaprio as a place to be used as a movie "A Beach". Koh Phi Phi is one of Thailand's most attracting island because its white beaches and turquoise waters, all these painting a picture of an island paradise. It is no wonder Phi Phi Islands are titled as "the jewels of the Andaman Sea". The island that is tailored for love birds is perfect for romantic strolls, then candlelight dinner, diving into the sparkling ocean, and exploring the underwater world. If you're going to an island for your Thailand honeymoon, consider no other options. It's Thailand's most romantic love nest where you can except a good time.

How to get there:

It is equidistant to Phuket and Krabi by ferry. 

We also mentioned visiting the lovely Phi Phi Islands in our Phuket travel guide


Honeymooners looking for a relaxing and quiet beach escape for a honeymoon trip will find that Krabi is an ideal choice. The Krabi is not as popular as the Samui and Phuket, so it's not so crowded, which makes it an ideal honeymoon destination. It is isolated, but there are many things to see and do on the island. Hire a boat (or hop on a ferry) to nearby islands, Maya Bay or Phi Phi Islands.

Younger honeymooners might also find a lot heart-beating outdoor activities, such as rock climbing, sea kayaking, jungle trekking and scuba diving are just among the destination's most popular leisure activities. 

How to get there:

Just 1.5 hours from Bangkok and 2+ hours from Chiang Mai by plane. Or taking land transfer from Phuket airport, which costs around 2 hours.


Just 1.5 hours to 2 hours from Bangkok or Chiang Mai, and available to most of international outbound flights, Phuket is the most convenient choice of a romantic Thailand honeymoon tour. There is a rugged, rugged 50-kilometer coastline dotted with picturesque bays and beaches, as well as lofty ideas - the perfect sunset cocktail, restaurants and resorts- all set in dreamy locations.

There are extreme activities for the active couples, excursions for nature lovers, dancing and music bars to end the day the lazy way. This is also a good foundation for you to explore nearby world-famous islands such as Phang Nga Bay, Koh Phi Phi and Krabi, etc.

How to get there:

It's so easy to board a flight to Phuket from major city of Thailand, such as Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Koh Samui, etc. Direct and takes around 1.5 hours.


Bangkok is a perfect blend of the old traditions and modern day culture. The enthralling landscapes, mesmerizing skyline views, romantic sunsets, and colorful street markets are nothing less than, sheer magic! Bangkok is also every Shopaholic's heaven and bar animals gathering places.

How to get there:

Bangkok is the biggest international terminal and you'll likely land here when starting your honeymoon. Spend the first part of your honeymoon seeing the historical sights and recovering from your jet lag. Alternatively, you may also end your Thailand tour in Bangkok because it will likely be the airport you leave from.

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is called "The Rose of the North" by the local people. It do deserves the name! This land of misty mountains and colourful hill tribes was formerly part of the independent Lanna Kingdom until 1558. Over the years, it somehow manages to retain its blissful, calm and laid back atmosphere – perfect for newlyweds seeking peaceful serenity yet still wanting a piece of city vibes. Though travellers frequently head to the capital city of Bangkok, more are increasingly flocking to Chiang Mai for a more authentic and down to earth experience of Thailand. Chiang Mai was named on Tripadvisor's list of "2

How to get there:

There are a lot direct flight from Bangkok. Normally takes around 1.5 hours.

Koh Lipe

Koh Lipe, also known as "The Maldives of Thailand." When you compare anything to the Maldives it's got big shoes to fill. But Koh Lipe does it. If a Maldives honeymoon is out of your budget then honeymoon in Koh Lipe is the spot. Koh Lipe is the magical paradise floating in the middle of the Andaman Sea with insane turquoise waters and white sandy beaches.

How to get there:

Be prepared for a inconvenient transfer because Koh Lipe is on the most sharp south tip of Thailand. Normally, you can take flight from Bangkok to Hat Yai Airport, and then take ferry to board the island. You might need some days stopping in Hat Yai. Traveling to Koh Lipe is only accessible by boat year-round from Pak Bara, Hat Yai in Thailand and from Langkawi Malaysia & other Thai islands November-April.
