Finding the perfect honeymoon destinations can be overwhelming. Especially when all you want to do is soak in that newly-wedded bliss with your partner. If you want to make your honeymoon planning a whole lot easier, talk to your spouse about the factors that you need to consider.
Usually, the best place to start is by setting your budget and determine your trip length and theme. Then, take into account the atmosphere, season and current situation in your prospective destination. Finally, list all the amenities that you need and want in a hotel to make the most out of the great deals that you will find.
Once you’ve come to a conclusion and made up your mind, take your time in scanning different destinations. For a sweet escape, take your pick (or picks!) from this list of breathtaking island destinations in Asia for your honeymoon.
Perfect Honeymoon #1. Gili Islands, Indonesia
This place is also known simply as the Gilis. If you’re like me and from a big city where you hate traffic, then this place is perfect. These islands don’t allow cars or motorized vehicles so you can sit back and relax in any of the numerous restaurants that range from casual to high-end dining.
For adventure, go ahead and dive, but keep in mind that the locals are now rather protective of the reefs because of previous environmental damage.
#2. Boracay Island, Philippines
Boracay Island is one of the world’s best beaches. This place never fails to amaze. The sand on the White Beach is so fine that it almost feels like baby powder on your bare feet!
Thrill-seekers will love the land and water adventures on offer while those who prefer utmost relaxation can find numerous luxurious and affordable accommodation options. Alta Vista de Boracay is a popular choice and is known to be a perfect honeymoon destination. Again, make sure that you and your spouse agree on your plans to avoid a stressful travel experience.
#3. Phi Phi Islands, Thailand
Consisting of two islands, this tranquil sanctuary was unknown until it was made famous by the 2000 film “The Beach” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Ironically, the movie featured inhabitants who fiercely shunned outsiders to protect their island. But don’t worry, in real life, the island hosts tourists who may want to watch manta rays and whale sharks in Hin Daeng or harmless blacktip reef sharks in Shark Point.
