Koh Samui “fits the bill” for a post-marriage Thailand holiday

Those keen to head off to a luxurious destination after getting married may find Koh Samui ticks all the right boxes.

Newlyweds might have been lucky enough to follow in the footsteps of the daughter of Robert DeNiro's character in movie Meet the Parents after he purchased her a Thailand holiday on the island, the Huffington Post reports.

The publication stated: "For a far-flung destination with beaches even more deserted and lodging even more decadent than other top honeymoon spots, the islands off the coast of Thailand fit the bill."

And those keen to go to the same south-east Asian location as Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may like to check out Koh Samui, as the newspaper pointed out the couple are frequent visitors.

But those thinking of heading west may like to check out Khao Lak – just an hour north of Phuket – which is a "perfect" place to visit, according to Erin O'Dwyer, writing for Stuff.co.nz.
