Visit cities during your honeymoon in Thailand
The two main cities of Thailand are Bangkok, on the south coast of the mainland, and Chiang Mai, in the north towards the border with Laos and Myanmar. Actually, you have to experience both during your honeymoon to experience the difference.
Bangkok is a nice busy metropolis where you can spend a few days. There are many authentic sights, such as the floating markets and the many temples.
At the same time Bangkok is also a modern city with good public transport. Bangkok is located in the south of the mainland of Thailand which makes it easy to travel to one of the beach destinations on the southern peninsula. A trip to the famous (or infamous) ‘Bridge over the River Kwai’ is also possible.
Chiang Mai used to be the capital of northern Thailand, when this was still the kingdom of Lanna. The city is a lot smaller and quieter than Bangkok and has very beautiful temples from the Lanna time.
From Chiang Mai you can make excellent trips in the interior of Thailand. Don’t forget to visit Mae Hong Son and Padong for its authentic population, rivers and waterfalls.
You can ride on the back of an elephant to Padong and meet the ‘Giraffe women‘ (who are called so because they make their necks very long with copper rings).
