Now that 2017 is upon us, we’re sure that many of you have started to think about where you’d like to travel this year. Perhaps you are getting married in the next twelve months, and are still considering places to spend your honeymoon. Or maybe you got married recently, but have delayed your honeymoon due to finances or other reasons. If you find yourself spoilt for choice and don’t know where to start, fear not. The lovely Ramona Rusu, Travel Counsellor at Ramona Rusu Travel Counsellors, is here to give you some suggestions, depending on your needs and what exactly you and your husband want from your honeymoon. Below, Ramona has helpfully categorised different destinations that you may wish to explore to celebrate the start of your married life. Whether you just want to relax on an island, experience some culture, or go on safari, there’s bound to be something here that will give you a serious case of wanderlust. Enjoy!
There is nothing quite like seeing wild animals in their natural habitat, and a good safari will remain with you forever. Whether you spend your honeymoon in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda or South Africa, each one of these destinations offer something unforgettable and unique, like getting up close and personal with the “big five” or wild gorillas and enjoying unbelievably beautiful scenery. It seems only natural that once your safari dust has settled, you should head to the relaxing soft white sands of Zanzibar or the South African Coast. Zanzibar’s clear waters and pristine white sandy beaches are the perfect place to unwind after a wedding, or a safari. South Africa offers a fascinating texture of things to do and see; lively bistros and bars on the romantic Victoria & Albert Waterfront, a trip to the top of Table Mountain, excursions into the winelands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and much, much more.
Europe offers some of the most romantic cities in the world, feeding the mind, pampering the body and refreshing the soul. Wander hand in hand along the Champs Élysées in Paris, take a stroll along the banks of the Seine or climb up the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame for stunning views of the city. Rome offers almost unrivalled sightseeing around ancient history, art and architecture. It buzzes with modern style, designer shops and lively nightlife – all set against this fabulously rich backdrop. Vienna is the perfect romantic setting; plenty of architectural drama with stately avenues, elegant squares and fairy-tale palaces built in the Baroque style. Venice, a city like no other, is outrageously beautiful with streets full of water, amazing architecture, art and history. Europe has so much to offer and a honeymoon discovering its amazing cities will never disappoint.
Beaches, rum bars, fish restaurants, music, dance and a mesmerising blue sea are the main lures for honeymoons to the Caribbean Islands. Relax on the beach during your honeymoon and enjoy some of the Caribbean’s most breathtaking scenery, with lush green mountains and tropical forests. Sip cocktails and enjoy sumptuous meals whilst watching the sunset on the beautiful islands. Its landscape is as varied and flamboyant as its people and is sure to provide a perfect setting for your dream honeymoon. One of the easy ways to experience as many of the islands as possible is by cruising between them. A cruise has never been a more amazing way to spend your honeymoon than it is today with all the unbelievable ships that offer the most luxurious accommodation, great facilities and activities, as well as gourmet restaurants.
If relaxation is at the top of the list for your honeymoon, you will enjoy one of these idyllic destinations: Fiji, Bora Bora, Hawaii or The Maldives. With fine white powdery sand, turquoise waves and traditional coconut thatched huts, these really represent ultimate peace and tranquility. You and your loved one can rest on white sands, snorkel in azure seas, watch the sunset or take a nap in a hammock. Enjoy the start of your married life together in pure bliss.
Vietnam, Bali, Thailand or Malaysia are much more than tropical beach destinations, with culture being their heart and soul. Their stunning beauty features varied landscapes with hills and mountains, rugged coastlines, sandy beaches and lush green rice terraces offering an array of activities for every single taste. From cruising in Halong Bay, one of the UNESCO World Heritage destinations, to discovering the amazing islands that Thailand has to offer, to climbing Mount Kinabalu in Borneo (an experience of a lifetime) or hunting for bargains in the colourful markets, you can include anything you wish for in your honeymoon while visiting any of these fascinating countries.
