Taking a break from the monotony of life was on my mind for a very long time and we were yet to plan our honeymoon as well. Being a nature lover, I have explored many places in India but was yearning to go on an international trip which is when, our honeymoon in Phuket came to pass.
The occasion couldn’t have been better and I couldn’t have asked for more than traveling with my better half. While we were still planning to explore a beach destination on our honeymoon, Thailand struck our minds. And luckily, one of my friends Sindhuja recommended to plan a trip with TravelTriangle, and we couldn’t thank her enough for advising us to do so.

Day 1: Hello Phuket
The first impression of Phuket was, perfect. The calm environs, and the roaring seas greeted us very well. We arrived at the airport and were transferred to the APK Resort & Spa. Post finishing the check-in process we rested for a while and went ahead to explore the popular attractions.
It was a great feeling to explore such lesser known places with my better half. Our first day in Phuket was a little laid-back as we explored the Tiger Kingdom, walked along the shoreline of Patong beach, and wrapped the day by indulging in little shopping at the Jungceylon Shopping Mall.
Day 2: Tour de Phi Phi Island
We finished our breakfast the next day and geared up for the tour of Phi Phi Islands. The weather was awesome and we were charmed by the monsoons in Phi Phi Island. We cruised the crystal clear waters of Phi Phi Islands which was a tremendous experience indeed. Later on, it was time to dive in and enjoy every bit of snorkeling as well.
Though it is not mandatory to pay the fees, for those who’ve not included snorkeling in their package can enjoy snorkeling by paying about 400 THB per person. We enjoyed every bit of this island which treated us to the most surreal view of the beach, turquoise waters, and the best snorkeling experience.
Day 3: Tour de James Bond Island
This day was dedicated for the tour of James Bond Island. Post finishing the breakfast at the hotel, we boarded the long-tailed boat and embarked on our tour to explore the paradisiacal James Bond Island. The ride was quite adventurous as it was also raining very heavily.
We relished a sumptuous lunch at the Muslim Fishing Village which is a great place to be explored. Offering peaceful environs, one can just walk endlessly through the fishing village. Later we also experienced the best of kayaking on James Bond Island which is a must for all the honeymooners.
Day 4: Hello Krabi!
On the fourth day, we were transferred to the island of Krabi via a ferry. The whole journey was too slow and tiring. We reached our destination late in afternoon and checked in at the Ibis Styles hotel which is a lovely place to stay indeed.
We rested up for a while and in the later half of the day, we strolled around the beaches of Ao-nang, and also enjoyed a bit of street shopping which was followed by a late dinner.
Day 5: Island Hopping At Its Best
Island hopping is much famed in Krabi and we had saved the best experience for the last day. With a lot of excitement, we started our fifth day for island hopping across the four islands of Chicken Island, Tub island, Poda Island, and Penang Island.
All the islands were mesmerizing and so thrilling. We were served a delicious lunch at the Poda Island which is a very scenic place. Later in the day, we also enjoyed a bit of snorkeling post which, we went back to the hotel due to heavy rains. It was indeed a lovely experience.
Day 6: Bidding Adieu To Krabi
From the weather to the Tiger Kingdom, and from snorkeling to island hopping, we had created some of the best memories forever. We were a bit skeptical in the beginning but at the end of our vacation, we were really happy to be bidding adieu to such an incredible paradise with a bag full of memories.

Honeymoon In Phuket Tips For Future Travelers
- Pack more of beach wear as Phuket and Krabi are both beach destinations and you’d be needing more pair of clothes to change.
- Always remember to exchange your currency in India itself before flying down to Phuket as the exchange rates are higher in Phuket and Krabi.
- Try to enjoy snorkeling in Krabi as it is for free. It is a paid activity in Phi Phi Island.
- The monsoon season prevails from the months of September to November which may not be ideal but a indeed a great season to explore Phuket and Krabi. It is a different experience in itself.
- National Park charges are mandatory in most of the places in Thailand. You can also chose not to pay in case you are not willing to explore any particular area or zones.
- Do not worry in case hotels ask you for a security deposit of 1000 THB. It will be refunded while you’re checking out of the hotel.
