If you want something a little different from your honeymoon – if want culture that spills onto the streets as you walk past, if you want unrivalled diversity of cultural backgrounds and the mix of modern city life with an unfailing sense of tradition, if you want clubbing one night followed by a peaceful, tranquil and quite sample of the traditional life the next than you need look no further than Asia. Renowned for its exciting diversity of lifestyles and diversity Asia is one of the top choices for young people taking their honeymoon nowadays – but how do you choose where to go. Unfortunately we are often still bound by work and our honeymoons can often last no longer than a couple of weeks and we have to make the right decision as we will remember our honeymoon for the rest of our lives. Here then, are the top three Asian honeymoon destinations:
If it is culture, tradition and knowledge that you seek than China could be the honeymoon destination for you. Not only does it have some of the most recognisable tourist attractions in the world in the form of the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and the Terracotta Warriors you will find that the locals are willing to take you under their wing and show you how their people really live. If you want to experience what it is like to live in a completely different culture the friendly locals are more than willing to show you their ways.
If you like history and mystery then Thailand could be for you – exploring some of the many temples that Thailand has to offer can be a great way to spend a memorable holiday. If that isn’t enough to keep the memories flowing why not visit the world one and only floating market. Thailand also offers up some great ways to relax with some of the finest beaches that the world has to offer.
If you like what you have read so far but think that the Asian destinations may stretch your budget a little bit (ask for travel vouchers in lieu of wedding presents!) then you may want to consider the Philippines. Whilst not being stowed in the bargain basement of honeymoon destinations you will find it the most affordable of all the Asian destinations. But don’t let the cheaper price tag fool you – the Philippines offer some of the finest, whitest, sandiest beaches of all the Asian countries – perfect for you sun worshipping couples. If you decide to visit Palawan you will find that it has two of the most beautiful of all the World Heritage sites – the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park and the Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park.
There are of course scores of other Asian honeymoon destinations here are three that should be on anyone’s short list of they want it to be memorable and provide the stories that you can pass down to your kids and grandkids in the years to come.
