However, beyond these wonderful destinations are hidden gems that can be easily added to your itinerary, all waiting to be explored.
If you’re looking for a magical place for your honeymoon, or a romantic getaway filled with rich cultural, local, and diverse experiences, then keep reading to discover a world of unique Thailand destinations that are distinctly their own.
If you’re travelling to Northern Thailand, chances are, you’re most likely there to visit the charming cultural epicentre of Chiang Mai. However, there’s a small neighbouring town with an incredible display of ancient ruins and historical temples dating back to the 13th century nearby. This place is known as Sukhothai, an awe-inspiring destination and the Kingdom’s first-ever capital city. One of the must-visit spots in Sukhothai is the Sukhothai Historical Park, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site with an impressive array of ruins and temples. For a truly unforgettable and romantic activity, we recommend renting a bike early in the morning or in the afternoon to catch the golden sunrise or sunset descending upon the towering Buddha statues and ruins. We have no doubt that this will be one of the top highlights of your trip.

Next up is Phattalung, a province in Southern Thailand with a wonderful array of unique and local experiences that you won’t find anywhere else. At first glance, Phattalung may seem like a sleepy passersby province on the way to more popular and well-known islands in Southern Thailand, but a couple days in this area will unveil stunning natural beauty, distinct local experiences, and a tight-knit community dedicated to preserving old-aged traditions and crafts. One experience that cannot be missed when visiting this area is an early-morning boat ride to Thale Noi, a fresh-water lake with sprouting lotus flowers and a natural wetland that’s home to wild buffalos and migrating birds. The pinkish hues of the sunrise reflecting on the calm, clear waters of the lake will make the 5:00 a.m. wake-up call worth it.

Khao Sok National Park / Cheow Larn Lake
Last, but certainly not the least, is the breathtaking and otherworldly Khao Sok National Park, home to the stunning Cheow Larn Lake. Khao Sok National Park is the oldest evergreen tropical rain forest in the world, featuring dramatic limestone karst formations, vibrant emerald green lakes, hidden caves, and majestic animals, including wild elephants, monkeys, barking deers, and more. One of the highlights of visiting this area is the opportunity to stay at a floating bungalow resort, like 500 Rai or Elephant Hills, which offer floating bungalows with pristine views of the lake and outdoor sitting areas directly above the soothing waters. As this is a nature reserve, Khao Sok National Park is the perfect place to disconnect your phones and connect with each other, savouring simple moments and the beauty of nature.
