There’s no better country to celebrate your anniversary than Thailand. With its stunning beaches, gorgeous mountains, and warm weather all year round, you’ll find plenty of picture-perfect places to experience with your partner on that special day. Indeed, the biggest challenge may be narrowing down all the choices.
While most of the sites on our anniversary list are by the seaside, Bangkok itself has some splendid options. Between the city’s Michelin-starred restaurants, its special rooftop venues, and its romantic cruises along the Chao Phraya River, couples can experience this fascinating city at its best for their anniversary.
For example, Red Sky is a luxurious rooftop lounge with a 360-degree view of Bangkok. It happens to be part of Centara Grand Hotel, so it is an especially convenient option for couples in the city.
Along the coast, the relaxed city of Hua Hin offers a quietly beautiful setting for your anniversary. Just two to three hours south from Bangkok, Hua Hin is a beloved holiday destination for Thai people and foreign visitors alike. For those seeking peace and intimacy by the beach, this is the perfect place for you.
Krabi is another superb choice for honeymooners as well as couples celebrating their anniversary in Thailand. Its white sandy beaches, limestone sea cliffs and nearby islands make this the perfect location for couples who are into outdoor activities and other adventures. Krabi invites you to go kayaking amid the amazing tropical scenery, as you explore the sea caves – and then swim among the brightly coloured fish. When it’s all over, head on back to shore in time to have a romantic dinner for two by candlelight.
As the largest island in the country, and a hugely popular destination for couples and families alike, Phuket has plenty of scenic hotels and villas that offer beauty and privacy in equal measure. Near the southernmost point of the island, you and your spouse can enjoy breath-taking sunset views over the Andaman Sea, from the famous Karon Viewpoint.
Samui Island has some of the best beaches in the country, with long stretches of white sand and turquoise water providing an amazing atmosphere for couples to enjoy the wonder of nature together. To immerse yourselves even further in the environment, you can either explore the deep blue sea with a magical scuba diving or snorkelling trip. Alternatively, if you’d prefer just to relax and let nature come to you, Samui has plenty of sea cruises to keep you and your loved one perfectly entertained as you celebrate your anniversary.
Widely known as the ‘Rose of the North’, Chiang Mai is yet another idyllic destination for lovers. The city is home to iconic temples, well-preserved ancient architecture, quaint restaurants, and friendly locals. It is also surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, lush tropical vegetation, and many other natural wonders.
There are myriad options to choose from to make your special day extra special. Take a northern Thai cooking class together. Explore the city’s historic temples. Go for a romantic cruise along the famous Mae Ping River. Venture outside of the city, where you can swim in the pools below a cascading waterfall or visit an elephant sanctuary and interact with these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Or, if you prefer, simply stay in and enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment followed by a romantic candlelit dinner.
The above list is far from exhaustive, with each city and region offering a special experience for couples to celebrate their anniversary in Thailand. Whether you’re recently married or have been together for 30 years or more, Thailand has everything you need to make the most of your special moments.
Centara has hotels in every location mentioned above, and in most cases the properties also offer special anniversary or honeymoon packages to make your experience even better.
