The Indochina countries of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar are wonderful destinations for newlyweds who are seeking a unique and unforgettable honeymoon.
From the misty mountains and bright green terraced rice fields of northern Vietnam, to the glittering temples of laidback Luang Prabang in Laos, and the pristine tropical islands of Cambodia in the Gulf of Thailand, this region is perfect for couples who want a magical, memorable and romantic honeymoon experience.
For places to visit and things to do during your dream honeymoon, here are our Southeast Asia honeymoon ideas:
Thailand is an ideal destination for a relaxing and romantic beach-based honeymoon, however there’s far more to this fascinating country than beautiful sandy beaches.
We recommend that you visit vibrant and buzzing Bangkok and the cultural capital of Chiang Mai, the ancient temples of Ayuthaya and Sukhothai, and the glittering Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew where you may be lucky enough to have your marriage blessed by a Buddhist monk.
For adventurous honeymooners, there are plenty of activities to choose from - including trekking in the remote hill tribe region in the north, or diving, rafting, rock-climbing and kayaking in the south.
For a truly special Thailand honeymoon experience we recommend that you spend a few nights in a romantic rainforest location in the remote Khao Sok National Park. We’re sure that this will be one of the highlights of your Thailand honeymoon.
Our Thailand Culture & Koh Samui Holiday is a great option for couples who want a combination of authentic culture, relaxation and romance.
With its magnificent temples, tropical jungles, spectacular waterfalls, lush mountain scenery and laid back cities, Laos is easily one of our favourite countries here at Wayfairer. It might not be a typical honeymoon destination, however we think that newlyweds will fall in love with Laos.
One of the best ways to enter the country is by slow boat from the Thai/Lao border – this gentle two day meander down the Mekong River to Luang Prabang is a wonderful way to adjust to the slow and relaxed pace of life in Laos.
We love the romantic, old-world atmosphere of Luang Prabang. With its stunning mountain backdrop, rich culture, French colonial architecture, golden Buddhist temples, authentic markets and riverside cafes, it is the perfect place to spend the first few days of your honeymoon.
Our Laos On The Loose tour is ideal for couples who are seeking a laid-back honeymoon with plenty of romance.
Vietnam might seem like an unusual destination for a honeymoon, but with its spectacular beaches, luxurious hotels, breathtaking scenery, friendly people and delicious food, we think it is a fantastic choice.
From the emerald waters and towering limestone islands of Halong Bay to the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An, a honeymoon in Vietnam can offer a perfect combination of adventure, culture and relaxation.
We recommend spending a few days in Nha Trang where you can relax on the stunning sandy beaches, join a private boat cruise around the nearby islands or visit the serene Thap Ba Hot Springs for a thermal spa treatment which will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
With its majestic Angkor temples, idyllic beaches and islands, bustling cities and tranquil floating villages of Tonle Sap, Cambodia has all the ingredients for an exotic and exciting honeymoon.
We recommend that you spend a few days in the quiet fishing town of Kep which is famous for its wonderful seafood, especially the local fresh crab. This relaxed town offers a peaceful and romantic retreat away from the crowds found elsewhere on the Cambodian coast.
From Kep you can take day trips to the nearby islands, including Koh Thonsay, also known as Rabbit Island, where you can spend a relaxing afternoon on the remote and virtually empty beaches.
Although it may seem like an unconventional choice, Myanmar (Burma) is a perfect destination for a magical and memorable honeymoon.
From the ancient temples of Bagan, to the serenely picturesque Inle Lake, and the pristine, palm-tree-fringed white sandy beaches of Ngapali in the Bay of Bengal, a Myanmar (Burma) honeymoon is guaranteed to be a trip-of-a-lifetime.
We recommend a river cruise on board the luxurious ‘Belmond Road to Mandalay’. During this wonderful week long cruise you’ll visit the temples of Bagan, the picturesque Sagaing hills and the monasteries, pagodas and shrines of Mount Popa. You may even have a chance to receive a special blessing from a Buddhist monk which is traditionally bestowed upon honeymooners to wish them good luck and eternal happiness.
