South Thailand Adventure Honeymoon

D1 Phuket-Khao Lak_Mai Khao beach

We start out in Phuket, a historic city so much more than just a beach destination. Once a major trading center on the route between India and China and frequented by European seafarers, Phuket’s historic Old Town area offers amazing glimpses of this era intermixed with its Thai, Chinese, and Muslim influences in shrines, temples, markets, shophouses, cafes and museums. It’s bewildering, yet exciting too, especially experienced in a Phuket walking tour.

After Phuket we embark on a journey of discovery to Cheow Lan Lake, a new hot eco-tourism destination in southern Thailand. Board a long tail boat with a nature guide to enjoy some majestic views of countless green islands surrounded by the azure sea. The views here are similar to Guilin in China or Halong Bay, Vietnam, only without the throngs of people!

Nearby is Klong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary for a chance to see gibbons, great hornbill birds, macaque monkeys and even wild elephants. The lake is placid and easy to navigate if travelers would like to paddle their own kayak to explore and take awesome photos of the area at sunset.

Resort

Leaving the secluded paradise behind, the next stop is a relaxing Thai beach resort for the honeymooners to have free time to spend at leisure swimming in the ocean or enjoying a Thai massage.

On our return trip to Phuket we will make stops at the 2004 Tsunami Museum & Memorial and the Home & Life Bakery, a project to help educate local orphans. It is also worth a visit to the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, a private enterprise that aims to return these intriguing animals, often kidnapped and abused, back to their natural habitat.

These are just the highlights of an exciting excursion for travelers on a honeymoon to Thailand with just the right mix of relaxation, adventure and discovering nature.
