Travel Experts' Honeymoon Itineraries: Thailand & Laos

Continued (page 2 of 2)

DAY 8: LAO ELEPHANT SAFARI
  • Head to Elephant Village, where you'll ride elephants through the jungle, swim, and eat lunch at Elephant View restaurant, which overlooks the Nam Khan River.... Return to town for more sightseeing, including a stop at the National Museum, a former palace that houses sacred artifacts. Around 4 p.m., head to the front of the Old Palace and walk up Mount Phousi (really more of a hill) for a bird's-eye view of the city.
  • DAY 9: FLY TO PHUKET
  • Fly back to Thailand, to the resort town of Phuket.... My favorite spot (and it's also a great value) is the Andaman White Beach Resort, located on a private beach. Splurge on a room with an outdoor jacuzzi where you can watch the sunset.
  • DAYS 10 & 11: PHUKET
  • Relax and enjoy the beach!
  • DAY 12: BANGKOK
  • Fly to Bangkok and check into the Rembrandt Hotel & Towers, located in the fashionable Sukhumvit district.... Take the Skytrain to the Suan Lum Night Bazaar. The nearby Joe Louis Puppet Theatre is also a must-see tonight. For dinner, I like Spice Market for fine dining or Harmonique for simple, home-style Thai cooking.
  • DAY 13: BANGKOK
  • Have a local guide give you a city tour, during which you'll visit Pak Khlong Talat, the biggest and most important wholesale market in the city—buy a chain of "love flowers" that smell wonderful and will last the rest of the day.... Board a "long-tail" boat for a trip down the river and along the canals of Bangkok's sister city, Thonburi, where you'll pass the Wat Arun (a.k.a. Temple of Dawn), a gorgeous example of Khmer architecture.... Back on land, visit the Grand Palace, and later, Vimanmek Palace. Enjoy a buffet lunch at the Royal Princess Hotel, then visit the Jim Thompson House, a must for lovers of Oriental art and antiques. For a culture-rich last dinner, dine with the locals at Soo Khek temple.
  • DAY 14: FLY HOME
