Well, your wedding will be more perfect if there is a sweet honeymoon trip. Then, where to spend your valuable honeymoon tour?

Thailand

Thailand – a romantic, charming and exotic country, has been loved by people from all over the world because of its high cost performance and rich tourism resources, and especially you have often heard of Thailand Honeymoon Tour! There is local customs, ocean and nature waterfall without any pollution, cultural monuments… well, all of this has embellished the whole Thailand – where you can feel the fusion of history and modernity.

If you both like noisy and crowded, you have better to Phuket, where is full of hustle and bustle, much fun there. If you wanna stay in silent, the Koh Samui island should be listed on your schedule. On the island, there is no hustle and bustle, but more peace, you can feel the pastimes and freedom, and of course absolutely safety. In the day time, you can enjoy the shinning blue coast and clear sky, while in the evening, you can sit at the beach an watch the sunset. How beautiful a scene!

Maldives – its name is so popular and has been appeared on big screen usually! There is floating hours in Maldives (actually Thailand also have floating house, even market.), which is unique experience. The honeymoon resort here is well-known for great service, and also here is a welcoming paradise.

 

Pu Qhuoc Island, Vietnam

Pu Qhuoc island is one of Vietnam’s hidden paradise. ‘Cause it is relatively quiet when comparing to the other coastal attractions. Although it is quiet, it is easy to get there, motorcycle rental tours are popular. During your honeymoon period, there is many things to do here – experience a snorkeling or scuba diving to have a look at the underwater beauty.

 

Bagan, Myanmar

Myanmar is a country famous for its culture and temple architecture. Since there is most of Buddhists in this country, the building here was affected. I think, the most suitable for honeymoon in Myanmar is Bagan – the most original nature beauty in Myanmar there will attracts you to explorer, and you can obviously feel the architecture and atmosphere are different from other countries. Apart from this, a romantic sunset views and with hot-air balloon are waiting for you.

There is so many places are deserve for honeymoon tour, or common visit. Maybe you can find more interested thing and fun if you come. In my eyes, a honeymoon trip in Thailand will be the most popular and unforgettable!

Wat Ban Rai

Wat Ban Rai is facing the east, so, it is the best time to take pictures there before 9:00 am. The elephant head and Naga will be backlit after noon. The temple has been designed with night lighting and when you arrive there in the evening, the lights below the Naga are warm, which will cover the elephant body, so Wat Ban Rai is also known as Thailand’s most magic fantasy temple.

Wat Ban Rai’s Naga is a dragon head and snake body, and there is a dragon king on the back. Naga has nineteen heads, and the numbers of two Naga add up to thirty-eight, representing sacred life. Each Naga uses one million tiles to make up. The seven-headed Naga in the pool represents seven colors and uses nine thousand tiles. The Naga Bridge symbolizes the way to the heavenly universe, and Wat Ban Rai is storytelling and mutually reinforcing.

Wat Ban Rai is surrounded by giant frescoes on the ground floor, each painting has a height of at least one and a half stories. The style of painting shows the dark and heavy hell, which forms an extreme contrast with the light heaven. The circular gradient of the ceiling symbolizes heaven and goes up the slope on one side to heaven.

After walking through the gates of heaven, this layer shows a process of Buddhist evolution. The top of the temple is dedicated to a walking Buddha, and in front of it is the golden statue of Master Long Po Kun. Looking down from the highest level of the tower, you can see the beautiful rural scenery of the northern Thailand.

Wat Ban Rai is more of a work of art and a museum than a temple. If you are not a Buddhist, then it is better to admire these breathtaking works of art with a visitor’s mindset. It is also an unforgettable and meaningful action in travel.
