Well just in case you are planning a trip to Thailand and want it fun and luxurious then here is my guide for your ultimate and luxe honeymoon or first anniversary. Here is my 5 day itinerary in Thailand
Phuket: Wyndham grand Kalim bay
Krabi : Centara Grand beach resort
Best time to travel: Nov to March
Day 1 and 2 dedicate it to Phuket and experience the liveliness of Thailand.
Since Thailand is tropical place. It can get hot and humid in day and for those of you who don't like beach in noon then you can spend a day exploring the amazing view points of the city.
Some of the recommended ones are:
Windmill view point
Black Rock view point
These view points will leave you mesmerized.
After view points, get back to hotel to dress in your best party wear and head to Pattong Bangla street.
Quick tip: The nightlife keeps on getting happening as night progresses so head there post 11pm.
I would suggest going to illusion nightclub after 12am for they have best music and performance and entry is free. You can also shop lot of designer dupes at Bangla night market.
If you get tired of walking then must try Thai message from one of many Thai parlours along the street.
Next day we went on a speedboat tour that took us to Phang Nga bay. It basically Included tour to
1. James bond island with canoeing
2. Floating market
3. The naka island
It's a full day trip
Quick tip: don't book tour online as they can be costly . Try booking tour locally at Patong beach market. They will be more value for money and easy bargain
Next we took a shared bus and travelled to Krabi.
Quick tip: we booked shared shuttle from Bangla street market itself. It was cheap option. Don't book private cabs as they can be really expensive. This bus is private shuttle with point to point service .
Hotel: Centara grand Island Krabi.
The hotel is cut off from main Krabi beach and has its own private beach. It is a super luxurious property, must go if you are on honeymoon or anniversary. They have their private free boat service that runs every 30 min to and fro to take you from hotel to city.
But yes if you don't like being away from city then avoid this one and go for Centara hotel right on the beach.
For day 3 we just relaxed and enjoyed property.
4 island tour.
Again, we booked speedboat a night before and at local market and got a good bargain. Please do bargain. It is great tour and takes your to all 4 islands of Krabi including koh tub, koh mor, chicken island and railey beach.
We took a phi phi Island tour. Though it is now shorter tour as now Maya beach is closed and there is no tour to Viking cave.
They will take you to phi phi Island, bamboo island and 2 snorkel sights.
Head back to India via bangkok
