The Thai island of Ko Kut was recently voted among the top ten places to spend Valentine’s Day by influential the media website The Huffington Post. The eastern island in the province of Trat was named alongside global destinations; such as, the Amazon, Nepal and Peru.
TAT Governor, Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik said, “It’s great that Ko Kut has been named among the world’s most romantic destinations and a perfect Valentine’s retreat. Here courting couples and honeymooners, young and old, will find all the elements that will make a memorable holiday. As well as the warm seas, soft sands and scented evenings, there is a real sense of privacy as the island is home to only a few friendly fishing families.”
The Huffington Post listed destinations that were pristine and offered privacy, tasty cuisine, lovely scenery, and unique traditions.
Ko Kut was singled out for being an intimate island hideaway, which, despite its size, is less populated than other Thai islands and offers privacy for couples seeking a romantic break. The island’s palm-fringed beaches, lush rainforest and charming fishing villages are among the romantic attractions that make it a perfect Valentine’s destination. Suggested activities for courting couples include exploring underwater dives sites and taking a sunset cocktail cruise.
TAT Governor said, “On Ko Kut, there are also several luxury pool villas which offer romantic views of the stunning sunsets over the Gulf of Thailand. It’s a distinctly “Thai” setting and most people leave having falling in love with Thailand as much as they have with each other”
Other romantic destinations named alongside Ko Kut were the Seychelles, Tanzania’s South Serengeti, South Africa’s Garden Route, the Northern Amazon in Peru, Norway’s Lyngen Alps, Bagan in Myanmar, Patagonia in Argentina and Dhulikhel in Tibet.
