10 most romantic places in Thailand

1. Nakhon Ratchasima

Nakhon Ratchasima is located about 3 hours northeast of Bangkok, but surprisingly not that popular amongst tourists. This is the most romantic province that we have been to in Thailand. Even though it doesn’t have the beautiful beaches that Thailand is known for, it has its charms. Nakhon Ratchasima is so unique that most of the time you spend there, you might ask yourself if you are even still in Thailand. Most of the buildings here are built-in an Italian style, but it doesn’t just stop there. You can walk straight out of a taste of Italy into a French-inspired village and finish your world trip at a replica of the lifeblood of London, River Thames. From Castles, mountains, waterfalls, sunflower fields to Italian inspired villages, couples will find it all in Nakhon Ratchasima.

2. Krabi

Krabi is located in the South of Thailand and is known for its limestone cliffs and its emerald waters. If you are looking for a romantic island adventure then Krabi is the place for you. It has over a hundred offshore islands that are easily accessible from the mainland. Some of the most visited islands around Krabi is Phi Phi island and Hong island, but there are more beautiful island day trips you can do for less than $30. Krabi is also known for its mangrove forests, rock climbing, kayaking, snorkelling, and hot springs. It has an active nightlife but not nearly as crazy as Phuket and Pattaya. Krabi is the ultimate romantic destination for all couples and honeymooners out there.

Best time to visit Krabi

The best time to visit Krabi is any time from November to March. Even though Thailand doesn’t experience rainfall in April and May, it might not be the best time to visit since its the hottest time of the year in Thailand. Since Krabi is the perfect island destination, you might not want to be here during the hottest time of the year. June to October is the rainy season in Thailand, which can put a downer on your island holiday.

3. Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi is a province filled with so much history and beauty. It’s mostly known for the Death Railway bridge that was built during World War 2, and the tragic deaths of the prisoners that were forced to build this bridge over the River Kwai. Even though this might put quite a damper on those romantic vibes, don’t overlook Kanchanaburi.

The reason why it made it onto the list of most romantic destinations in Thailand is because of the Erawan National Park and Sai Yok National Park. Erawan waterfalls is a 7 tier waterfall that gets more romantic with every tier you climb us. We recommend visiting early to take the relaxing hike while avoiding the crowd and experience its incredible natural beauty. You are allowed to swim in some of the pools of water and what is more romantic than swimming under a waterfall. Sai Yok National Park is known for Sai Yok Yai and Sai Yok Lek waterfalls, Dao Wadung Cave, Khang Khao Cave, and Lawa Cave. If you want to make the best of your stay in Kanchanaburi, we would recommend renting a car or a personal tour guide that can take you to where ever you would like to go.

Best time to visit Kanchanaburi

The best time to visit Kanchanaburi would be right after the rainy season, so any time from November to February. Because it’s known for its beautiful waterfalls, you want to be there when the waterfalls have the most water. However, Kanchanaburi is beautiful all year round, and the waterfalls don’t dry out. We do, however, recommend avoiding Kanchanaburi during April because it’s the peak of summer.

There are so many day trips to Ang Thong National Park and the other islands close by, such as Koh Tao and Koh Pangan. The island is particularly famous for its unique rock formations known as Hin Ta and Hin Yai ( which resembles the male and female genitalia). After a long day of exploring, Koh Samui offers beautiful sunsets and romantic nights out. With so many restaurants on the beach where you can enjoy delicious meals by candlelight and fire shows, it’s easy to see why so many couples enjoy this island.
