Happy May bank holiday!
With all these sunny spells lately, I can't help but imagine myself lying on a beach whilst soaking up the rays with cocktail in hand...It gets me reminiscing about honeymoon - that well deserved post wedding holiday where the two of you hit the road hand in hand, to sample the delights of what the rest of the world has to offer.
We chose Thailand for our honeymoon, starting in Bangkok, traveling up north to Chiang Mai and finishing our trip on the tranquil island of Koh Phangan. At first, I admit I wasn't fully convinced about Thailand as it had never been top on my list of travel destinations.
However, I was quickly won over by the Thai hospitaliy (upon arrival at our hotel, we were greeted by a lady hand making fresh flower bracelets for us - where would you get it? More so, where would you get it for free?! ) It was those little details, along with their culinary delights, sensual spa treatments and varied terrain that made me fall in love with Thaliand. Other highlights on this trip were the rainforest zip lining, elephant trekking, thai cookery school and the shopping in Bangkok. You get much more mileage for your money (thai baht) in Thailand so you can do five star standard the whole way and not be left feeling foolish or ripped off in anyway.
Whether it is sun, sea, snow or sighseeing you are after for honeymoon, be sure to make it a trip of a lifetime!
