Da Lat, Vietnam
A popular mountainous and forested area in Vietnam’s Central Highlands, Da Lat qualifies as an exciting travel destination. The best time to visit the town is during the monsoon season i.e. from April to September. This is because Da Lat’s spectacular waterfalls are at their best in the rainy season. With a perennial pleasant weather, beautiful hills, and magnificent pine forests, it is the ideal place to choose for your honeymoon.

Koh Samui, Thailand
A spectacular island off the coast of Thailand, Koh Samui offers you so much to see and to do. Nature lovers will enjoy exploring the isolated lagoons in the Ang Thong National Marine Park or scuba diving in the stunning waters of Koh Tao. Explore the old-world charm of the island at Bophut’s Fisherman Village. If you want to just spend some quality time doing nothing, then sunbathing on the beach or crashing in a beautiful beachside bungalow would be the perfect option.
GoFro Tip : We suggest visiting Wat Samret because this not just another temple. Inside is the Secret Hall of Buddhas, which is kept locked but can be opened by the monks if you request them to.
