You just made a hundred choices and tons of decisions when planning the wedding ceremony, sampling meals, choosing flowers, seating guests and trying out different wedding jewellery and dresses… Before you rest, you are to make one last major choice – the honeymoon destination. Its a tough one, with the world ahead of you and the countless destinations and contradicting reviews. Here are Steven Stone’s time-tested, classical honeymoon destination suggestions
The former Japanese capital offers a sophisticated and most definitely unforgettable honeymoon experience. With more than 2000 temples, gardens, palaces, museums, galleries and shrines, Kyoto offers countless activities – you can participate in a tea ceremony, have a private dinner with a geisha or take a tour around Kyoto on a bicycle. The city will douse you into an extraordinary adventure with mysterious culture, ancient traditions and sublime arts.
Can we possibly think or talk about honeymoons and romance without mentioning Paris, the city of love? The attractions, restaurants, art galleries and museums are too many to list, however we recommend you visit Paris for at least a week, dining out and trying out as many foods and wines as you can. Dedicate a day to exploring the everlong masterpieces at the Louvre and another to wandering in the streets of Paris. For the ultimate getaway, visit Disneyland and all its magical attractions, rides and activities. You’re never too old to have fun!
Bora Bora, Tahiti
The small island seems to have been made of the finest honeymoon dreams – white sand, crystal clear turquoise water, perfect climate and luxurious overwater bungalows. Bora Bora offers its guests relaxation and venture – newlywed can go skydiving, windsurfing, shark and ray underwater safari, jet skiing, helicopter touring, guided hike or jeep safari.
