Romantic Gateway in Thailand
Trang Underwater Wedding
Some people consider Thailand an eccentric place, and no better is its eccentricity displayed than in the annual 'Trang Underwater Wedding Festival'. That's right - people get married - UNDERWATER! Masks, tanks, flippers, white wedding dresses, tuxedos - right down to waterproof marriage certificates and pens that write underwater! Bizarre... but something you'd never forget!
The Cliffs Wedding
Just when you thought there was nothing to top Trang's underwater weddings, Thailand pulls another one out of the bag... The 'Cliffs Wedding'...
Koh Samui Wedding
In Phuket you can charter boats and have your ceremony and reception cruising around the Andaman Sea.
The 'Lanna wedding' ceremony a lure for many who wish to start their married lives with something more than a normal wedding...
