Like most couples who travel to Thailand for their honeymoon, the pair set out from Bangkok to take in all the sights and sounds the city has to offer. What impressed them most was the incredible (and very affordable) street food.

From there, they fly to Chiang Mai (pro tip: domestic flights in Thailand are usually very cheap). They had many adventures there - trying new foods, visiting temples and even hanging out at an elephant sanctuary. After leaving Chiang Mai, they made their way to Phuket where they got an amazing rental to hang out and relax in the sun before heading to Phi Phi Island, Krabi, Ao Nang.
