@Bunni0929:  We are planning to honeymoon in thailand, indonesia and malaysia early next year. I cannot offer advice except to say I have friends who lives throughout that area for 18 months and found it amazing.

didn’t honeymoon there but backpacked through SE Asia. hoooooly cow! Love love love Thailand. I stayed in hostels so I’m not sure you would want to go that route. But there is so much to see: historical places, the mountains, the beaches! So much to do: hiking, climbing, rafting, kayaking, beach bumming, partying, exploring the culture, EATING SO MUCH FOOD! 

My recommendation: if at all possible go for no less than 2 weeks if you can. 

 

ALSO TAKE ME WITH YOU! I won’t make a peep! 🙂

@Bunni0929:  It was our 1st choice! However we wont be able to go because of the food. 🙁 I was diagnosed withc celiacs a few months back and so much of what they eat contains soy sauce. 

Anyway national geographic has some AMAZING tours.

I dont know your price range or if they still offer the tours but they has amazing ideas of what temples and towns to visit. (FI and I were very interested in seeing the culture).

I would not got to Phuket for a honeymoon (or if you do don’t stay in Patong, stay somewhere quieter and more couply like Kata or Karon Beachs. We stayed at a resort in Kata few years ago which was very nice. And it is so seriously cheap there.) Koh Samui is meant to be a bit more honeymoon friendly. Friends of ours also don’t recommend Pattaya for couples.

Haven’t honeymooned there but have been a few times. There are some great beaches, amazing food. Instead of riding an elephant (as many tourists do), look at visiting an elephant sanctuary.

@Bunni0929:  I usually use online sites to book everything. We got to Thailand at least once a year since it is so close and inexpensive compared to holidaying here.

I would suggest not going to Patong, Pattaya, Bangkok , PhiPhi Don for your honeymoon. They are not exactly romantic places and are overrun with tourists and touts.

I also think it depends on what you like and what you are after for a honeymoon.

If you just wnt to site on a beach with little hassles and relax I would suggest Khao Lak, Hua Hin/Cha’am or one of the small islands off Phuket.

Chiang Mai is ok but can get crowdwd. Same with Krabi but they are still streets ahead of Patong.

Check out Bophut, Ko Tarutao, Ko Chang and I highly reccommend Ko Tao.

If you want to stay near a major tourist area then I would suggest the Indigo Pearl on Phuket. It is far enough away from Phuket town and Patong for rest and relaxation but close enough if you want to go and explore.

If you want to party then stay at the places I said were not romantic.
