Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is one of the most exciting cities in the world. It combines an incredible nightlife, luxury hotels, and amazing food with a busy, young atmosphere to make it a great choice for the honeymooners looking for a fast-paced time away. Many people choose Thailand for their honeymoon, however, because of the gorgeous beaches and resorts which occupy quite a few of the more beautiful islands of the country; there’s no way we can deny the appeal of those wonderful places. If you’re looking for a stay in the city alongside a relaxing beach retreat, it may be worth stopping off for a few days on the way to your luxury destination. Bangkok is an amazing city to enjoy and explore along your way. Here are three amazing experiences for you to enjoy during your stay in the city.
1. For a taste of traditional romance, stop by the amazing flower market of Pak Khlong Talad. You’ll be absolutely amazed at the profusion of colourful, beautiful flowers which assault your senses as you wander about the market. You’ll find all the flowers you’re familiar with and a few more – orchids in particular are a speciality in this country. Choose your favourite and tuck a flower in your hair for the rest of your day. There’s nothing like a gift of flowers to kindle a little extra romance, which is just the right feel for your honeymoon.
2. Take a boat through the canals of Bangkok. Though they’ve largely been overtaken by cars, Bangkok’s boats are still running and are the perfect escape for the crowd-weary honeymooners looking for a glimpse into old-world Bangkok. A boat ride in and out of the city can take you from the bustling metropolis into the surprisingly unchanged countryside and back again, giving you a real appreciation for this lovely country and busy, developing city.
3. Experience Thai massage. This isn’t the same type of massage you’ll get elsewhere; a Thai massage is a true experience. While you may not want to repeat it, it’s a great opportunity to start relaxing at the beginning of your journey, before you’ve even hit the beach. Thai massage usually involves the therapist putting you into different positions, almost as though you’re performing yoga, and using all parts of their body to massage and realign your muscles and bones to get your body in perfect condition for the rest of your honeymoon.
