5 Exotic Honeymoon Destinations

By

Honeymoon is the journey that we all look forward to before our marriages, and store in our memory albums for the rest of our lives. It is the journey of love, of togetherness and it produces an eclectic collection of romantic moments to cherish throughout life. A good honeymoon no doubt needs a lot of planning. You have so many options, and so many places you have wanted to go to, but you can never be sure if it will be the perfect choice.

A honeymoon is supposed to be an exotic, romantic escape or the proverbial trip of a lifetime. If you want a beach scene, Barbados or St Lucia in the Caribbean come on top. Some love France, Italy or Greece except that places like Paris, Rome and Venice are overridden with tourists. For somewhere more exotic, India or Thailand would be the top choices. You can have a really romantic time touring Europe. If you like ancient civilizations, you could visit the ancient ruins in South America, or see any number of the Great Wonders of the world.

Here is a brief over view of 5 exotic destinations selected by Brides & You. These include some very popular and some very unusual places.

The island’s geography, plentiful coastline with a mountainous centre, ensures plenty of year-round activity

Home to Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and being at the heart of three continents, Cyprus’ cultural influence is largely European, but its proximity to Asia and Africa give it a deep Eastern influence. Cyprus has been coveted and fought over by a succession of admirers: Mycenaeans, Egyptians, Assyrians and Persians, to name a few. The former British colony was most recently fought over by the Turks and the Greeks. A result of this turbulent past is an impressive range of cultural treasures, from Crusader castles to the tomb of Prophet Mohammed’s aunt. The island’s geography, plentiful coastline with a mountainous centre, ensures plenty of year-round activity.
