Thailand is no doubt one of the most budget-friendly destinations preferred for a romantic interlude. Its idyllic beaches and azure waters are major attractions as honeymoon getaways. However, the most overhyped and popular beach destinations such as Phuket and Krabi are now crowded by tourists making it lose its secluded charm and thereby not able to provide the serene and secluded ambiances desired for a romantic getaway.

One such hidden gem is the Koh Lipe - an island located within the Tarutao  Marine Park.
