Go to Bali.  Stay at the Hanging Gardens in Ubud.  It is the most fabulous place on the planet.  I don’t know where you live, but it’s easy to get to… we flew from Chicago to Seoul, Seoul to Denpasar.  Ubud is about 1.5 hours from the airport. 

Look up the hanging gardens hotel.  NOTHING will compare after that.

Thai food in Thailand isn’t all like what you get in the west, plus you can get Western food pretty much everywhere (if you really have to). There’s a huge variety there and BOY do they love their food. 

We spent most of our honeymoon in Thailand and the food was wonderful. When we had a night of feeling fed up of Thai food, even the burgers we had were delicious.

If you don’t mind going a bit off the standard track, Koh Lipe is possibly the most beautiful place on the planet and the beaches are beyond stunning.

Here’s the view of our resort on Koh Lipe from the water and their private beach (that’s me in the bikini).

@matibkie:  The vast majority of Thai people are lovely. There’s nowhere I went that I wouldn’t go back to (either time that I went). Koh Lipe is stunning. It has all the stunning beaches of Koh Phi Phi or Phuket but with far fewer tourists (who are worth avoiding to an extent if you want peace). 

If you want to splash out, Six Senses Hideaway just outside Hua Hin was probably our favourite hotel (just beating out Serendipity on Koh Lipe). We had a private pool villa with a personal butler which was far beyond the luxury of any of our other 5* hotels. One of the best things there was the private barbecue we had. They specialised in intimate meals for two in your room served by utterly inobtrusive staff.

I absolutely LOVED my trip to thailand. I was there in 2003. I think if you and your hubby are into the adventure of backpacking through a beautiful country like that, it would make an incredible honeymoon!

I spent two weeks in the southern islands, and then two weeks in the northern highlands. There’s a sleeper train that runs south to north so you can get there pretty quickly. (you stop briefly in Bangkok on the way back up)

Thai food is one of my favourite cuisines in the world. but it’s entirely possible that it still might not appeal to you, or “jive” with your digestion, etc. like other ppl have said, you can get western food there no problem, and pretty much everyone speaks english.

remember, it’s expensive to get there, but then you’re living it up on $20-25 a day. it’s incredible! and the Buddhist culture pervades with beauty in the landscape (literally- Buddhas in the hills) and decency in the people (country nickname is the Land of Smiles)
