Posted by Howie’s HomeStay on April 6th, 2017
Couples from around the world are choosing Thailand as a honeymoon destination because it is the perfect tropical retreat. Packed with the best places for adventurous pursuits, Chiang Mai is an easy choice for those seeking relaxation, indulgence, romance, and action, all in the heart of nature. With its collection of luxurious honeymoon hotels, the city provides newlyweds a compelling option for that special honeymoon vacation.
Chiang Mai strikes a lovely balance between contemporary and traditional, nature and urbanity, and relaxation and adventure. From its lively downtown boulevards to its picturesque countryside, the city is so much more than a worthy alternative to Bangkok, as many travel guides refer it to be. Chiang Mai is a beautiful destination in its own right— the ancient capital city of the Lanna Kingdom that has managed to keep its unique local charm despite the rising contemporary scene. Unlike so many modernized Asian cities where traces of local tradition have gone to be replaced by what’s cool and in, Chiang Mai is among the few destinations where older establishments are regarded with utmost care and respect, keeping its old-world charm intact despite the turn of the age.
Honeymooners looking for culture will definitely enjoy hands-on experiences in one of the many traditional massage and authentic Thai cooking schools in the city. Art lovers will appreciate the growing community of local designers and artists who regularly showcase their craft in hip spaces and galleries just outside the old town. The city also has its share of outdoor bazaars, famous not only for their handicrafts, but for the authentic local street food experience they offer.
However, if it is nature that you crave for, the best honeymoon hotels are well within reach of some of the most stunning nature parks around Chiang Mai’s countryside. Day tours and treks on well planned outdoor trails are extremely popular with adventure-seeking couples looking for unique and unforgettable experiences in the foot hills of the Himalayas. Luxury honeymoon villas in the city are also the perfect settings for relaxed downtimes in between active and cultural pursuits around the honeymoon town of Chiang Mai.
