Spending time with the elephants in Chiang Rai was one of the most magical experiences of my life. Tey are such special animals. I really recommend visiting northern Tailand for your honeymoon, it’s so beautiful and tranquil, and we immediately felt welcome and relaxed there. We like to think we’re fairly eco-aware so the Six Senses hotel on Yao Noi island was perfect for the second half of our trip. We particularly enjoyed the breathtaking view over Phang Na Bay, the stunning beach and lush rainforest surrounding us, safe in the knowledge that our footprint wasn’t harming the environment. I defnitely recommend a twin-centre honeymoon, it feels like much more of an adventure and you’re not putting all your eggs in one basket. Luckily we had the experts at Turquoise to guide us – without their recommendation we would never have ventured so far. When we got home we felt like we’d been away for ages!”

IN A NUTSHELL
Tree nights at Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok and seven nights in a pool suite at Anantara Rasananda on Koh Phangan. Price includes international and domestic fights and transfers. “Flying into Bangkok was so exciting.
We were already on a high afer our wedding but getting to Bangkok took it to another level. Neither of us had been to Asia before so we were especially thrilled when Turquoise suggested Tailand for us.
We ate out at amazing Tai restaurants, visited a foating market and did a full-day sightseeing – arranged by Turquoise. Riding around on tuk-tuks was brilliant and we felt like we really got to know the city before heading south into paradise.
Te beaches on Koh Phangan are white-sand and palm trees, just as they look in the brochures – it really was a dream come true. We hired motorbikes and explored the island and found loads of secret beaches and great family-run restaurants. We loved it so much, we’ve already booked a return trip!
