    This is just my opinion, but I plan on RELAXING on my honeymoon. Fiance & I call it our “planning induced coma.” I voted the Caribbean, but I’m biased. 🙂 I have been there before as well, but never with Fiance and never to any adult-only couples resorts or anything.

    I do think that if you really want to do Thailand then you should go for it – personally I would save that for another year and do it as just a big trip. That is something you will have to plan and you will already be planning your wedding this time.

    Take it with a grain of salt, but hey, that’s what I would do. Good luck!

    I voted for Thailand. I went there with my now husband 4 years ago and absolutely loved it. How long are you planning to be there for? I wouldn’t suggest too much travelling around on your honeymoon. We were there for 3 weeks and spent time in Koh Samui, Phuket and 3 days in Bangkok at the end of our trip. Loved Koh Samui and would give Phuket a miss. If we ever go back, we’ll do some of the smaller islands.

    I loved Thailand!  Its an amazing experience.  I agree with @Monny, spend a few days in Bangkok, and then relaxing on a beach – Krabi is beautiful.  If you’re up for a little more adventure, I’d highly recommend hoping over to Cambodia to see Angkor Wat.

    I voted for Thailand bc thats where we want to go! We’ll relax, but honestly I want to see culture and a new destination rather than sitting around in a resort all day. But to each their own, I know for some people, sitting around on a beach resort is the dream honeymoon.

    We went to Thailand for our honeymoon and had an amazing time!  PM me if you have any questions.

    Oh and I’d definitely recommend Koh Tao.

    I voted the Caribbean Sandals because I just got back from there (Sandals Royal Bahamian) and it was amazing.  Let me know if you want more info, I would love to ramble on about it.

    I voted Thailand, that is pretty much what I want to do too. I’m thinking 6 days of beach/relaxing will be enough for me and then I will want to see more stuff. I was thinking Chiang Mai/Chiang Rai for 5 days and Khao Lak for 6, the Bangkok for 3.

    I’ve been too Thailand as well, but voted for the Caribbean.  I’ve been to both actually – but the Caribbean (to me) is more of a honeymoon so you can focus on eachother (as well as sites).

    Plus, I saw some crazy things in Thailand, so just watch where ya go.  🙂

    Hard to say from outside what would suit you best as a couple…But if I were in your shoes, I’d choose Thailand. We choose for our honeymoon somewhere neither of us had been before because it was more special to experience it together for the first time. You say you’ve been to Caribbean many times and you’re not a resort person, so I don’t see a great appeal outside that. We’ve been to Sandals in Jamaica before, it was nice, but I’ve been to much nicer resorts in the Mediterranean for half the price. Don’t regret going because it was a new experience but wouldn’t go back either.

    Thailand!!!

    There are MANY MANY beautiful beaches in Thailand. I would perhaps leave not immediately after your wedding? Begin your honeymoon at a beachy resort location in Thailand for a day or two to decompress. Then travel to other areas. 🙂

    I hope to take a Pacific Island trip one day!

    A tip for airfare look at buying your flight out of BUF to major airport separately. Search NEW/LGA/JFK to Thailand. Or even from Toronto to Thailand.
    THen get your airfare from BUF to major airport separate. It’s MUCH cheaper that way.
