They don’t call it the ‘Land of smiles’ for nothing. With its hospitable people, exquisite cuisine and natural elegance and beauty, this is the destination that dreams are made of, so why not make it yours!
Here are six of our favorite reasons to choose Thailand as your wedding destination
1. The Weather and Climate are Perfect
Despite having three seasons, Thailand is hot all year round. With its tropical climate, temperatures can easily reach 40 degrees and more, so if it’s the heat you’re looking for then a Thailand wedding will certainly deliver, and you won’t be disappointed! June to October is the rainy season, however temperatures still soar and the downpours rarely last more than a couple of hours.
2. The Cuisine is Exotic, Hot and Healthy!
Thai cuisine is said to be the healthiest in the world. Wedding planners can guarantee that you will eat like royalty during your stay in Thailand. Thais love their food. It is always fresh and you can let your eyes feast on dishes arranged like works of art.
3. The People of Thailand Make Foreigners Very Welcome
Their natural warmth and hospitality shines through and they are gentle, accepting people. They are very easy going and tend to live in the moment without worries of the past or the future. Marriage and family is a sacred and important part of Thai life and they are strong believers in the Buddhist value system, meaning all humans are equal.
4. Hotel Accommodation in Thailand is Amongst the Best in the World
In these ‘hospitality temples’ you will find a first class service second to none. Whether it be in a luxury top hotel or a smaller boutique hotel, you can be sure of luxury and an experience and memory to treasure for the rest of your life.
5. Shopping in Thailand is a Paradise in Itself!
Depending on where you stay, you can usually find everything at a fraction of the price back home. From markets to shopping centers, you’ll find an entire wealth of goods and curiosities. Your Thailand wedding wouldn’t be complete without this experience!
6. Entertainment is Plentiful in Thailand and is Guaranteed to Excite the Senses
Whether you’re looking for a relaxed evening in a cocktail bar or a night of partying and cabaret, Thailand has something to offer everyone. Traditional Thai performances are a way of learning and sharing in Thailand’s rich culture and can be enjoyed in many resorts and hotels. Your wedding planner will gladly provide information about the provision of hotel entertainment, tours and attractions.
