With bridal couples eagerly anticipating international destinations to actualise their dream wedding, Thailand stands out as the perfect wedding destination for Indians. Here’s why:
Wealth of scenic locations and venues: Replete with tranquil beaches, tropical mountains, rustic Thai villages, magnificent Buddhist temples, and some of the finest luxury hotels and resorts, Thailand is an epitome of a picture-perfect wedding destination. Whether a swanky wedding at a lavish beach resort or a private nuptial in lush gardens or vineyards, Thailand has an endless array of mind-blowing locations to suit the unique predilections of every couple.
Affordability and hospitality are Thailand’s second nature: The Land of Smiles is ubiquitously known for its gracious culture and hospitality that will instantly put you at ease. Thailand’s wedding venues are grand and mesmerising, yet considerably less pricy than comparable destinations, making it a deserving contender for the title of “the ultimate wedding destination”.
Cost and ease of travel: Travellers from India can easily enter Thailand through nonstop or single-stop flight connections. Thailand has 38 airports that are spread evenly across its provinces. Its primary airport, Suvarnabhumi can be traversed in about 4 hours via non-stop flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad. Apart from the geographical proximity, the eVisa-on-Arrival facility coupled with reasonable air-ticket prices will make the voyage to Thailand hassle-free and cost-efficient.
Flavoursome food to fit the occasion: Indians have a strong attachment to their food, and Thailand knows this well, as numerous hotels, resorts, and venues specialise in delivering delectable and authentic Indian cuisine. There are numerous options available. Thailand is home to some of the best Indian restaurants and chefs in the world, all of which have mastered the skill of creating authentic Indian cuisine from any region of India. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian foods are meticulously prepared to replicate the characteristics of traditional Indian cooking, ensuring that taste and quality are uncompromised. The wedding entourage can even fly their trusted home chef or maharaj, as many hotels and resorts enable this arrangement on request; Thailand’s markets are brimming with all kinds of Indian spices one would require dishing out a sumptuous Indian buffet. Bridal couples who want to opt for something different can treat their guests to exquisite and tantalising native Thai dishes. Thailand has the perfect culinary options to spice up (and sweeten) any wedding celebration,
from delectable appetizers to savoury main courses and a sweet finish of heart-melting traditional Thai sweets.
The beauty of Thai craftsmanship: Complementing the stunning backdrop for perfect weddings are the skillful Thai craftsmen, who excel at creating awe-inspiring floral & ice-carving arrangements to fit any theme. Perfect for the occasion, these decorations enhance the look and feel of the wedding venue with their aesthetic charm.
