There’s only one word to describe a honeymoon and that has to be heaven! Whatever your paradise consists of, whether it’s white sands and crystal waters, active adventures, or cities and culture, the place that defines heaven in your book is absolutely where you need to be going, no questions asked!
Picking the perfect honeymoon destination has to be all about everything you’ve ever dreamed of. And for us, we like the thought of relaxation after all the hectic shenanigans of planning the wedding, so a blissful beach holiday with an extra touch of action and adventure sounds right up our street.
Of course, there are some completely crazy cool places to go, such as New Orleans, Marrakech, Panama City, Bali and Rio de Janeiro. Then there’s the massive culture of the more remote parts of South America (Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia), the recently discovered mysterious cities of Southeast Asia, and the wonders of India and Ancient China to absorb – they are most definitely on our bucket list.
But, when relaxation and getting away from it all is your idea of the ultimate honeymoon, here are our top ten places to choose from (we’ve missed out Jamaica, Maldives, Seychelles, Dominican Republic and Mauritius, because they’re obvious):
