      The Basics About Thailand

      Thailand is a large country located in the center of mainland Southeast Asia. It is located within the Tropics, meaning Thailand encompasses a very diverse ecosystems, including hilly forest in the north, rice fields in the central plains, and broad plateaus of the north, and of course, the beautiful, rugged coasts along the southern peninsula. Thailand used to be very much an agricultural country, but it is very up and coming! Since the 60s, many people have moved to Bangkok and to other cities like Chiang Mai and Udon Thani.

      Thailand is around the same size as France or Spain, but it has a much more diverse geography.It is broken into two main geographic areas. The larger main section is in the north which is surrounded by Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and the Gulf of Thailand. The smaller section is the skinny peninsula in the south, which makes up a beautifully diverse landscape. So, without leaving the borders of the country, you can experience beautiful beaches with crystal clear water, forests full of beautiful towns and historic temples, or big cities rich in culture and a great experience.

      The people in Thailand are known for their hospitality and being extremely nice to tourists. The locals often will stop to talk to you and if you go to a market, you can meet some really amazing people with awesome stories.

      There are huge markets in all of the large cities in Thailand. Here you can find not only amazing food, but also beautiful, colorful clothing that is traditional to Thailand.

      Spending your honeymoon exploring these cities and markets will be so much fun for you and your loved one. Exploring a new culture will be something that you two will remember forever and be able to tell people all about it for the rest of your lives.

      Why Thailand Is a Great Honeymoon Destination

      Traveling to Thailand for your honeymoon is not only an amazingly beautiful and cultural experience, but also a great economic choice. A Thailand honeymoon will easily stay on budget while still giving you the most amazing experience and allowing you to experience new things. Traveling around Southeast Asia in general is fairly cheap, but Thailand definitely has a lot to offer despite the cheap price tag.

      Compared to traveling anywhere in Europe or North America, Thailand is indisputably cheap. For hotels, you get far more than what you pay for in accommodations. Transportation around Thailand is also relatively cheap, however flights are around the price you would expect. Food and drinks are cheap as well, but activities are more of an expected price.

      Best Time to Visit Thailand

      Since Thailand is so close to the equator, it has a hot and humid climate. If you are looking to spend your honeymoon in Bangkok, the best times to go are from November to March, when the heat and the humidity are at their lowest. Given the tropical climate, temperatures can rise up to 90 degrees on any given day of the year. November through March also are a good time to visit because the northeast monsoon is blowing cool, dry air that is a great relief from the humid heat. From March to June, temperatures can get up to over 100 degrees with 75% humidity. Unless you are parked at the beach, you will definitely be feeling this heat.

      Probably the worst month to visit Thailand is April.Β  Again, unless you are parked at the beach and in the ocean, you will be pretty miserable. April is the hottest month of the year in Thailand with a very high humidity as well. It is best to stay away from Thailand from July to October, as this is monsoon season. During these few months is when Thailand gets most of its annual rainfall and there is often severe flooding around the country. The humidity averages around 90%, making it a very hot and wet experience.

      Top Things to do in Thailand

      Given the geographical diversity and culture of Thailand, there is so much to do. Especially for a couple in love, you will have an amazing time on your Thailand honeymoon.

      So, with so much to do, where should we start? Let’s begin with attractions that are a must see. First, is The Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew). This is a must see in Bangkok. It is a breathtaking, dazzling Palace that was built as a home for the Thai King, the Thai war ministry, state departments, and the mint. This was truly the heart of the Thai government. Today, it is the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom. If you visit, try to dress politely, as some have been turned away for dressing incorrectly.

      If you are looking for more of a relaxing, beach trip for your honeymoon. Then you definitely need to consider going to Phuket. Phuket is an hour plane ride north of Bangkok. Surrounded by the Andaman Sea,Β  Phuket is an island in paradise. You and your love will enjoy pure white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and limestone cliffs. Found in Phuket are world class sas, beautiful boat tours, and amazing restaurants. Phuket welcomes travelers with a flavorful cuisine and a rich culture. Like most of the country, it is very heavily influenced by Buddhism. Phuket really offers an amazing honeymoon experience with a low price tag. If you are feeling more adventurous (and patient) and want to experience more like Phuket, you can take an 8 hour slow boat ride to the Similan Islands.

      The Similan Islands were declared a Marine National Park in 1982 and remain largely undeveloped. Here, you can find quaint fishing villages and beautifully clear water that boasts some of the best diving in the world. You will find tropical fish, colorful coral, and amazingly clear visibility. If you are dying to go to a beachy place but other locations are too expensive, you should heavily consider going to Thailand. You will not regret your Thailand honeymoon, it will be something that you talk about for the rest of your lives.

      If you decide to take your Thailand honeymoon in Bangkok, there are many historical sites that you must check out. We’ve talked about The Grand Palace, which was once home to the Thai King, but let us go even further back in history. 400 years ago, Ayutthaya was a prosperous trade city and political capital. Today, it is an abandoned city, scorched by years of conflict with Myanmar. It brings a sort of haunting feeling, a ghost of one of Thailand’s darkest times in history. Located just a little north of Bangkok, it is accessible to travelers and definitely is a must see for your Thailand honeymoon.

      Weather in Thailand

      As we’ve mentioned a few times, given the tropical geographic location of Thailand, the weather is generally hot and humid. Thailand gets a large annual rainfall but this almost exclusively happens in the monsoon months (July to October).

      When visiting for your Thailand honeymoon, you should be prepared for hot, humid weather and you should probably pack a raincoat, just in case. Definitely bring a swimsuit because we definitely recommend hitting the beach to see amazingly clear waters and pure-white sand.
