Why Tie the Knot in Thailand
By Keeran Baweja
So you're getting married and are considering having a Destination Wedding. The next question is the 'where' bit- for there are so many options for a Destination Wedding. Thailand in all likelihood is on top of the list, but if you need more inputs on 'Why Thailand', here's some information to make decision-making easier.
Thailand is convenient, because of its close proximity to India. It has become the wedding destination for young couples looking to celebrate their special day at an exotic location.
What sets the country apart is its variety of stunning locations, each richer than the next with reserves of clean, natural beauty. Some of these places are Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin, Phuket, Khaolak, Koh Samui, Krabi, Chiangmai .
While Thailand is popularly touted as a tropical paradise, it does have the locations of Kanchanaburi & Chiangmai for people who enjoy mountains.
The beaches and forests of Thailand are the stuff of dreams. Each lush nook is brimming with the promise of Technicolor splendor. It is a true canvas for nature, to paint in her most vibrant hues, from the azure sky to the turquoise ocean and the rainbow flora.
To have your traditional wedding ceremonies amidst such beauty, would add an extra magical wonder to the special occasion, which you, your family and friends will never forget.
Prepare to be fascinated by the pristine, white sand beaches, the tropical rainforest and verdant mountains.
You may be aware that Thailand is also known as the 'Land of Smiles'. The title is well deserved, as you will always be served with a smile.
It is in the Thai culture, to treat their guests with the utmost love and courtesy. Everybody you speak with will be comfortable, professional and pleasant: from the Tourism Authority of Thailand to the bellboy at the hotel where you're staying.
I assure you, at your hotel, all the staff will go out of their way to be helpful and ensure your experience is as wonderful as can be. A General Manager mentioned recently, that his motto is: 'everything is possible'. People with mindsets like this, add to a strong cultural infrastructure, which makes everyone approachable, and leads to you feeling at home away from home!
In Thailand, you can expect a warm, intimate wedding, surrounded by family and your most special friends. You will experience this once in a life time moment within a slice of heaven. Your near and dear ones will be relaxed, away from the stresses of life de rigor. They will be free to enjoy this time with you, in this most fabulous country.
Worried about cost? In Thailand, you have many different options in terms of accommodation. You can opt for a four star hotel on the beach or a deluxe five star property.
These come with their own in-house venues, within the grounds or on the beach. It is up to you to add or subtract from the many services the hotel will provide, and the final package you decide upon will be affordable and will fit in perfectly with your budget and vision.
While Thailand is a culinary adventure unto itself, it is remarkable how flexible all the hotels are when it comes to the kind of food you want served at your wedding. Usually, the hotel will have its own Indian cuisine speciality chef, else more often than not, it will be open to catering services. Most hotels even throw in the option of using their kitchen, with an external chef of your choosing.
If these many reasons were not enough to tip the scales in Thailand's favor, let us add that you needn't worry about finding a proficient Pandit ji, henna artist, or makeup and hair professional. Even renting an elephant or a horse for Baraat processions can be arranged. Dancers, drum and dhol walas are also available here and are experienced, consequently very good with the services they provide.
