Top Things To Do In Thailand On Honeymoon
Here is what all we did on our honeymoon in Thailand. Have a look at the best things to do in Thailand on honeymoon.
Day 1: Exploring Patong Beach and Phuket
It was 7 in the morning when both my husband and I had reached the Phuket Airport, and we were welcomed by our tour representative who was waiting for us with a private Cab. It was then our Thailand honeymoon kick-started and we couldn’t hold the excitement for long. Immediately after the airport, our driver drove us to the Patong beach, which was only an hour away from there.
Upon reaching our hotel – IBIS later, where our honeymoon stay was arranged, we freshened up, relaxed, and met our Phuket tour representative – Ms. Pum. She took us through our entire itinerary, and with a few suggestions from her, we made some changes and finalized our travel plan for every day. And since the first day was for leisure, both of us walked around the city, spent some time on the beautiful beach, relished the Thai flavours, and came back to the hotel.
Tariff: INR 1700 (starting price)
Amenities: Sun terrace, pet friendly, in-house bar and restaurant, free wifi, accessible parking, swimming pool
After getting some rest, we headed off to the beach again, which was only a few minutes’ walk from our hotel. The streets at were not so crowded, and looked bright and lively. We were amazed to see that the local culture and people were so welcoming as they treated all of us with great love and respect.
Day 2: Taking a Phi Phi Island tour, savouring Thai cuisine & witnessing the Phuket nightlife
As part of the ‘things to do on a Thailand honeymoon’ list, we had our breakfast at the hotel and left for the great Phi Phi Island tour by 7:30 AM. Ms. Pum, our tour representative suggested us to take the speed boat for taking the Phi Phi Island tour rather than taking the ferry. We went ahead with her suggestion and had one hour of awesomeness on the speed boat on our way to the Phi Phi Islands.
On this day, we covered five islands of which first was the beautiful Maya Beach. The crystal clear blue water looks so captivating that you feel like diving into it. After spending some 40 minutes on the beach, we headed to the Monkey Island, where one can see swimming monkeys in the rocky island. Followed by this, we went to Phi Phi Le and Phi Phi Don Islands, and had a sumptuous Thai lunch together.
Snorkeling is one of the must things to do in Thailand on honeymoon, especially when you are surrounded with beautiful corals and fishes. What made our experience more memorable was swimming amongst the gorgeous marine life. We returned to our hotel by 7 in the evening and headed out again to explore the famous Bangla street known for its nightlife. It took us by surprise as we saw one whole street full of lights, street magicians, dancers, music, pubs, bars, strip clubs, and more. It is undoubtedly one great place for spending your weekend and partying like there’s no tomorrow. The same street also leads to the beach where you can have a couple of beers while relaxing on the sand and even take a dip in the waters. We were absolutely mesmerized with Thailand’s nightlife and didn’t want our honeymoon to end.
Day 3: Exploring the James Bond Island, canoeing & capturing memories
The third day of our honeymoon started with a Continental breakfast at the hotel after which we left for the James Bond Island tour planned for the day. A one hour drive through the beautiful roads of Phuket led us to the jetty from where we took the ‘Big Boat’ for our island tour. We also had a group of travelers from China along with us and it was great meeting all these people from a different culture. This island tour is another of those things to do in thailand on honeymoon that one should not miss.

After a two hour’s ride we reached a rocky island where we got into Canoeing boats. Of all the things to do on a Thailand honeymoon, kayaking was one adventurous experience that we had. We rowed through the deep dark caves in the islands from the sea where we could see hundreds of bats hanging upside down. The glistening rocks shined like precious stones, and it looked like a true wonder of the earth. We then kayaked through two more such islands which had sky high cliffs, deep forest, and beautiful hidden beaches that made it look exactly like a Jurassic Park.
Post kayaking, we had lunch on the boat, and then reached the famous James Bond Island. We walked around the island, posing for photos near the famous James Bond Rock before heading back to Patong. At the night, we explored around and tasted the mouth-watering seafood of Phuket.
Day 4: Taking a Phuket city tour
It was the last day of our honeymoon in Phuket and we wanted to make the most of it. So, after checking out of the hotel by 10:00 AM, we were received by Ms. Nana, a lovely tour guide who took us for the Phuket city tour. First, we went to the famous Buddha temple where the holy remains of Lord Buddha left us mesmerized. And later, we headed to a beautiful three beaches viewpoint, a Honey bee factory, and a Pearl factory.
The most thrilling part of the day was our visit to the Tiger Kingdom, where we touched and posed with the mighty tigers. A visit to this place is definitely one of the top things to do on a Thailand honeymoon. On our way back to the airport, we visited an emporium to buy some souvenirs so that we could keep our Thailand honeymoon memories fresh even after coming back home.
High Points Of Our Trip
- Speed boating and big boat ride to the islands
- Visit to the Tiger Kingdom
Low Point Of Our Trip
- There were exactly no such low points or negative experiences on our honeymoon. The only sad moment was the time when our driver had reached early to pick us up on one of the days, and we were not done with the breakfast yet, so we had to leave it and head for our tour.
