The world is beset with thousands of destinations for newlywed couples. From vibrant, bustling cities to pristine beaches to idyllic countrysides, there are tons of options to choose from, and sometimes, it can be a little overwhelming.
Depending on your interests as a couple, your honeymoon destination should be able to reflect who you are and offer the things you both would love to experience. Since a honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, it’s important that you make it be something that you will never forget.
If you and your partner are the laidback types, appreciate ultimate relaxation, and don’t want to deal with too many people, Krabi in Thailand can be perfect for you. It’s an increasingly popular destination for newlyweds for its unparalleled beauty, natural charm, diverse wildlife, and the many leisure activities you can partake in.
Why have a honeymoon in Krabi?
When you think of honeymoon destinations in Thailand, your mind probably immediately goes to spots like Phuket or Koh Samui. Those places are undoubtedly beautiful, but they tend to attract thousands of visitors each year. You may not get the unfettered relaxation you’re craving for should you want to spend your honeymoon there.
In Krabi, however, you’ll have access to secluded beaches that offer maximum privacy. It’s also teeming with stunning sea caves, limestone cliffs, waterfalls, and hot springs that you can indulge in. Meanwhile, if you want to stay active, there is a wealth of exciting pursuits like sunset yoga and water sports that you can try.
What to see
Despite having fewer visitors, Krabi has no shortage of beautiful places to see. For starters, you can relax on the gorgeous white sand of the famous Railay Beach and take in the limestone cliffs surrounding it.
If you’re an animal lover, a trip to Thung Teao Forest Natural Park may be well worth it, as it lets you see rare species of animals and birds. It is also home to a pool of clear turquoise waters known as the Emerald Pool, where you can relax after a day of exploring the forest.
If you want to immerse yourself in culture, there is the Wat Tham Sua or Tiger Cave Temple, where you can visit the giant statue of Buddha and seek blessings. It takes approximately 1,237 steps to reach the summit, but the payoff is getting to enjoy the 360-degree view of the Andaman Sea and its surrounding rainforests and cliff formations.
What to do
For the adventurous types, you can try snorkeling to enjoy the abundant marine life Krabi has to offer. Expect to see beautiful corals, impressive underwater rock formations, and mesmerizing sea creatures. If you want to take it up a notch, you may head to Koh Lanta, an island district two hours away to try scuba diving. There, you can enjoy balmy weather, pristine beaches, and stunning coral reefs. The area also has friendly locals and bustling nightlife where you can dance your night away. If you want to try something new, many places in Krabi offer Muay Thai lessons, art classes, and cooking lessons.
