TVH Traveler Trip - Honeymoon in Thailand!
One of the first trips we planned was a honeymoon for our friends, Sumi and Adil! With 2 weeks to fill, we helped them plan an amazing trip to Thailand with classic stops in Bangkok & Chiang Mai, and some beach time in Koh Samui and Koh Toh. They had a blast, and we had fun helping them make it happen! If you have a trip you'd like help planning, fill out our trip survey to get started!
Sumi and Adil were looking forward to their first big trip together after their wedding, but with full time jobs they were having trouble finding the time to do the research. We were happy to help!
Starting in Bangkok, our intrepid couple first spent several days exploring the city, enjoying Bangkok's lively markets, and getting pampered at their hotel. Their honeymoon package included a complimentary welcome dessert, dim sum lunch, and full body Thai massages! The view from their hotel, the Eastin Grand, gave a panoramic vista of Bangkok's towers, and the city provided all sorts of colorful interesting sights on its canals and in its markets.
In addition to Bangkok's street scene, Sumi and Adil got out to see some of Bangkok's famous palaces and temples. A hike up the Gold Mount gave them a sweeping view of the temples below, and provided a perfect spot to take a picture with a unique backdrop. A final delicious looking meal of classic Thai cuisine finished up their last night in Bangkok.
From Bangkok, a short flight took our friends to Chiang Mai and the jungles and mountains of Thailands northern province. Chiang Mai is particularly known for its elephant encounters, and both Sumi and Adil got to get up close and personal with some gentle giants in a visit to an elephant park!
Another adventure took our travelers out into the jungle for a zip-lining excursion through the canopy. A little bit of rain couldn't put a damper on their day as they explored the forest!
From Chiang Mai, their honeymoon continued to the south, to the island retreats of Koh Samui and Koh Toh. A journey by plane, bus and boat brought to their room overlooking the ocean.
In Koh Samui, Sumi and Adil went snorkeling together for the first time in the clear waters offshore. Adil learned, much to his dismay, that his mustache was causing a leak in his mask, and had to shave it off! Missing mustache aside, they're happy to report that they saw more fish than they imagined they would, and loved the experience.
Thailand offered our friends all they hoped for in their honeymoon, and we were happy to help them make it happen! If you'd like some help planning your own once-in-a-lifetime trip, we'd love to hear from you; contact us with our trip survey!
