On Valentine’s Day, lovers will have their underwater wedding ceremony, which is the highlight of the event, at Koh Kradan in the Hat Chao Mai National Park. The newlyweds will also be on an unseen Thailand tour to stunning natural tourist destinations in Trang, the province famous for its beautiful coral reefs and the Emerald, or Morakot, Cave.
