Best for adventure…

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Thailand’s second-largest city is the perfect honeymoon escape for adventure-loving couples. Tumbling from the mountains, the Mae Tang River provides exciting white-water rafting opportunities, while all-terrain vehicle rides, mountain biking and rock climbing are spectacular on-land adventures on offer. 

For hardcore thrill-seekers, there’s zip-lining companies that will help newlyweds swing through trees, fly along zip-wires and crash into cargo nets at high speed. If you do one thing here though, visit Chiang Mai’s Elephant Nature Park. An elephant rescue and rehabilitation centre, this breathtaking place is where you can see and feed the majestic creatures in a setting that’s respectful to them.

One of the most popular drawcards of the area is the remote hilltribe villages that are scattered throughout the mountainous terrain. Organised treks deep into the tropical vegetation often include an overnight stay with these unique and colourful ethnic minority groups, giving the opportunity to learn about their subsistence lifestyle – a truly unforgettable experience. 

Thinking of escaping to Chiang Mai? We’ve put together a guide to discovering the best of adventure, luxury and culture in Chiang Mai here.
