Day 1: Welcome to Bangkok, Thailand
Arrival Note: Thank you for your trust in choosing us to arrange your trip to Thailand! When your plane lands in Bangkok, you will be greeted by our guide and the driver at the arrival hall of the airport and escorted to the hotel in a comfortable exclusive car. On the way to the hotel, you will get a glimpse of Bangkok from the car window, while our guide will introduce you to this route which is especially suitable for honeymoon or couples.

Activities & Dinner Suggestion:
We have no fixed sightseeing plans for the rest of the day because we would like to give you some time to recover from the long flight. If your flight arrives early and you're not tired, you can go around the downtown by yourself. Take a taxi to the Khaosan Road Night Market to taste the local snacks, or check out the romantic night view of the Chao Phraya River at the Asiatique The Riverfront.

Accommodation: Movenpick Bangkok Sukhumvit 15 (4 stars)
Day 2: Bangkok highlights
Sightseeing Activities: First thing in the morning, we’re heading to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in the western suburbs of Bangkok, which catapults you into some of Thailand’s most pristine life. The river is crowded with boats loaded with goods, and you can buy fresh and cheap fruit from the vendors. Next, we’ll head back downtown to visit Bangkok’s most splendid royal building complex, the Grand Palace. The guide will take you through the grand labyrinthine complex with golden roofs to visit its iconic halls and temples, among which you can’t miss the Wat Phra Kaew, north of the Grand Palace, and famous for its precious emerald Buddha statue. Finally, we will arrange a Chao Phraya River cruise for you to take a boat to the Wat Arun and go ashore to visit this historic temple and its five remarkable stupas.

► Tip: The Wat Arun is a great place to take pictures for its all white and dignified appearance. Many newlyweds and couples like to take photos here. Clothing rental and photo services are available at the entrance of the temple for a fee. If you are interested, you can wear the beautiful traditional Thai dress Chut Thai and have a sweet photo taken there as a nice memento of your honeymoon trip.

Krabi in Brief: Krabi, a tropical peninsula in southern Thailand, is an ideal resort for honeymoon. It has soft white beaches, warm and clear water, swaying palm trees, natural waterfalls and diverse wildlife. Surrounded by more than 30 outlying islands dotted like jewels in the blue Andaman Sea, Krabi is a great place for diving and water activities. Also, it is a paradise for rock climbers. To allow you to explore Krabi at your own pace and preference, we have set aside the next two full days for you to make your own arrangements.

Tip: The hotel we have selected for you is a beachfront complex facing the Andaman Sea, perfect for honeymoons or couples.
