Koh Samui: Where to Eat
You likely have a friend who went to Thailand on his or her honeymoon. The vacation spot has earned its place on your bucket list. First of all, it's not easy to get to (we're talking at least 12-15 hours away if you don't have a layover). So if you have two weeks off for your 'moon, this is a good way to use up those days.
And it definitely has all of the over-the-top romantic, Instagrammable, once-in-a-lifetime destinations and experiences you expect from your first big trip as a married couple. I am talking hot pink sunsets, elephants, and spicy noodle dishes worth breaking your wedding diet on.
I traveled to Thailand for part two of my honeymoon last April (part one was in Bali, which you can read about here) and spent six nights in the gorgeous Southeast Asian country. We split our time between Bangkok, Koh Samui, and Chiang Mai. This provided the perfect mix of city, country, and island life.
The good news is once you get halfway around the world, you can live luxe on a nice budget. I'll admit we did splurge on hotels for the occasion, but there are plenty of fantastic options for all budgets.
