15 days Departures all year round

The honeymoon of smiles

This beautiful honeymoon will take you first to Thailand, one of the most sought-after and attractive countries in Southeast Asia, which stands out for its bustling streets, temples and centuries-old Buddhas, rich gastronomy, incredible beaches and landscapes and the friendliness of its people. Then, the paradise of the Maldives awaits, with its famous white sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters and amazing water resorts. On the other hand, although there are still steps to be taken, Thailand is one of the most open and tolerant countries for LGBTQ rights in Asia, being completely safe for all kinds of people. The Maldives, on the other hand, is not a country where our rights are recognised, although, as the resorts are located on private islands, respect and privacy are assured.
