An essential stop-off on any Thai or southeast Asian honeymoon, Bangkok envelopes your senses. In a metropolis teaming with tuk-tuk drivers, markets, malls and temples, The Sukhothai is a five-star oasis of calm set in six acres of soothing gardens with Zen-inspired decor. Relax by the 25m pool, ease post-flight tensions with a Thai massage in the spa or eat your way around the world in the hotel's restaurants (don't miss the award-winning Thai at Celadon or the Chocolate Buffet on Friday and Saturday afternoons in the Salon). Wow factor: The legendary Sunday brunch includes fresh oysters, foie gras, suckling pig and dim sum. Go very, very hungry.
