Before Our Honeymoon in Thailand

before honeymoon in Thailand
We have our passports all set for their (well, almost!) next stamp!
Just under six weeks from now, Nick and I will be taking off for our long-awaited honeymoon in Thailand! For those of you who have just started reading my blog, Nick and I got married on September 14, and immediately flew back to Sweden the next day. A full hockey season later, and we are about ready to go!

We decided to book our honeymoon in Thailand for several reasons. Because its the off-season, we have several weeks in which we can go travel and vacation. Who knows when the next time in our life we will have an opportunity like this? Secondly, the flights to Thailand are pretty expensive. For Nick and I, the flights are costing almost as much as our hotels- for the entire three weeks. And this is staying in 4 and 5 star places. You could really do Thailand on the cheap, not book any hotels, and just meander down the beach one you get there and find a place for super cheap. We elected not to go this route, as its our honeymoon and we'd like to know where we will be staying! Thirdly, we wanted our honeymoon to be something special, and not just a trip to Mexico (where we have both been before, where all of our friends and family have been, and where it seems like everybody goes!).

So, Thailand it is! After some researching, we decided to do East Coast of Thailand, as it is currently the West Coast's rainy season. We are headed to Koh Samui, which should be a great location! A beautiful island in the middle of the sea, surrounded by several other islands we can take day trips to. Researching Koh Samui, we should have beautiful beaches to lounge on, the ocean to swim in, and of course endless possibilities of snorkeling, scuba diving, and perhaps even deep sea fishing for us Nick. After our time in Koh Samui, we will wrap up the trip with several days in Bangkok.

I, of course, am excited about checking out the Koh Samui snake farm. Nick, not so much. Especially after I told him that there are over 170 types of snakes in Thailand, and fortunately only 50 of them are poisonous (I think if we hadn't booked everything, this may have cancelled the trip). Other than that, we plan on snorkeling, day trips, hopefully kayaking, hanging out with elephants and monkeys, running a 5K (call us crazy!). Has anybody else been to Thailand, Koh Samui, or Bangkok? What would you recommend to do- or to stay away from?
