September 20, 2019
Ramada Resort By Wyndham Khao Lak

Hopping on a plane and going away to a dream destination such as Khao Lak with your partner can be quite the adventure. Your first time as a couple travelling together, staying in a tropical resort in Khao Lak is quite a significant milestone in any relationship. After all, the experience allows you to explore the local Southern Thai culture, beautiful places, and delicious Thai food together, while discovering new things about each other too.

 

Whether you’re newly dating or have been together for years, traveling together can be extremely revealing of a person’s character, and you can never expect what you’ll find in your first trip together as a couple. After all, traveling can bring lots of fun and laughter, but it can also tag along with some challenges that you will need to overcome.

 

To that end, we’ve come up with a list you can pack along with your trip to keep the fights at bay and help you achieve the ultimate getaway:

 

Tip #1: Understand and Speak the Same Language

Each person expresses their love differently depending on their personality type. It’s crucial to understand and decode these languages. That way, you will be taking the guesswork out of doing actions that meet your partner’s needs, be it through acts of service like giving the time to cook for your partner or quality time spending it at one of Khao Lak’s throngs of romantic restaurants.

Others may find it more exciting to sift through the local markets in Khao Lak and indulge in staple street foods. Either way, learning the language that best speaks to your partner is sure to spark romance in the air and light them up!

 

Tip #2: Set Equal Time to Do and Explore What You Both Love

It’s essential to accept that you and your partner will not always find interest in the same things. With that in mind, when planning for a vacation, be sure to set aside some time for both of your interests to avoid getting into unnecessary arguments about which activity should be done for the day.

This goes to show that planning together is crucial as it will help you and your partner explore their own happiness and unique ways of entertainment—be it spending a relaxing day at Khao Lak’s beautiful beaches or enjoying one of the many activities available in Khao Lak such assnorkeling, scuba diving, Thai cooking class, bamboo rafting, playing golf or even zip lining. Both will need to have an equal hand in making the itinerary to have a well-balanced vacation where both parties are enjoying their time.

 

Tip #3: Skip the Guesswork and Strive for an Open Communication

It’s not always easy to talk about what you feel as many people tend to feel vulnerable and uncomfortable at the thought of expressing their opinions. However, excellent communication is the foundation of any healthy relationship, which is why it is essential to keep your lines open to encourage full understanding and mitigate needless arguments.

Communication also builds trust, promotes understanding, and ensures that you and your partner have the same level of respect for each other. When a problem arises, being tight-lipped about the issue will only hurt your partner and the relationship. Meanwhile, taking the courage and time to make them see things from your point of view creates a love that is clear, honest, and mature.

 

Tip #4: Mix Downtime With Adventure

This applies to any vacation you will take, though it is especially helpful for couples going on their first trip. Lounging lazily by the sandy beaches of Khao Lak may be the perfect time to unwind, but sticking to the palm-infringed beaches for the rest of your journey may not be the best way to enjoy the local culture fully.

Similarly, continually seeking adventurous activities without taking any downtime can run the risk of becoming cranky due to exhaustion. However, if you mix up the two, it creates the perfect recipe for one of the most fun and memorable getaways as a couple.

 

Tip #5: Learn How to Listen Actively and Sincerely

It takes a village to raise a healthy kind of love, and in that regard, one of the simple yet highly effective ways to do so is to learn how to listen. Unfortunately, it can be a tough skill to master as many people tend to listen with the intent to reply, but to have an enriched working relationship, you and your partner must know how to listen with the intent to understand.

This means that you have to develop the ability to listen with the intent to learn from them and let go of thinking ahead to formulate a prompt response. One way to do it is to maintain your focus on your partner talking – either through eye contact or encouraging nods where it is appropriate. Let them have some time to pause and resist the urge to fill the silence with your opinions to let them fully express their thoughts first.
