Thailand Honeymoon Booked - So Excited!

Our honeymoon is officially and completely booked as of this morning, and we're so so excited! We are spending 3 nights in Bangkok and then flying to Phuket for another 7 nights. We got ALL of our flights for free thanks to Chase rewards, and we only used about half of our points so the rest will cover our next vacation! We are paying out of pocket for the land portion of the trip, but we worked with a travel agent and it has been a breeze! She scheduled the full trip including hotel reservations, four tours/excursions, and all transportation to/from airports and tours is covered and scheduled. Breakfast is included at the hotels and the tours also each include one meal so about half of our meals are already covered in the price, which will help keep costs down while we're there. They also gave us a free upgrade at the second hotel so we'll have a private pool connected to our room! The upgrade also includes a free massage voucher for both of us and it says we'll be greeted with fruit and champagne upon check-in.

This was our first time using a travel agent and I couldn't recommend it enough. We will definitely plan on doing so for any international trips like this - it didn't cost us a penny to use her since she gets paid through the tour company she books with.

We are just so excited!!

    We used someone from destinationweddings.com so they focus on (obviously) DW and honeymoons. A friend recommended her because she also used her to book her honeymoon in Thailand a couple years back. Feel free to private message me and I can pass along her individual email address!

    It's meant to be such a beautiful country! What type of tours/excursions are you planning while you're there?

    We are doing a general city tour in Bangkok, and in Phuket we are doing a sunset canoe trip, going to an elephant sanctuary, and doing a local authentic cooking class. The last night also happens to be my birthday so my travel agent said we can coordinate something with the hotel to have a candlelight dinner on the beach.

    How exciting!! Thailand is so beautiful! The elephant sanctuary is so fun! Make sure to pack clothes and soap to use after playing with them lol! Also take advantage of the cheap pedicures and massages!

    How exciting! I spent 4 months in Thailand and it was absolutely amazing! The beaches in Phuket are to die for and the locals are so friendly! Have a great trip! Just a heads up that locals try to sell products on the beach, there is no avoiding it as they are everywhere. Its a little annoying since you are trying to relax but it is inevitable. You just have to politely tell them no thank you and they will leave you alone.

    I'd love the information as well as we are also planning our honeymoon to Thailand. I was going to plan it myself but would love help. May I ask your budget?
