bahamas - the honey moon hot spot

1. The Bahamas

The Bahamas consists of over 700 islands and inlets, but whichever one you choose you are bound to love. A frequently selected destination for its inherent romance, there are beaches a plenty to relax on where you can witness a stunning sunset or two. If you fancy a bit of a dancing then you should take a boat tour and enjoy some drinking, dancing and a whole lot of fun. For the adrenaline junkies, there is an abundance of water sports available. Whatever takes your fancy, make sure you make some time to visit the capital, Nassau, to experience the nightlife and culture of the Bahamas.

2. Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

After the stress of booking a wedding photographer and sorting out the catering, a touch of relaxation is in order. Niagara Falls is a classic destination for a honeymoon as the amazing scenery can be witnessed by taking a boat ride directly under the Falls. There is shopping to be done and nightlife to sample, alongside the outdoor activities. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, why not head across the border to America? The sheer variety of things to see and do means you will be wishing you had longer than a week to soak up the culture.

3. Las Vegas, Nevada

You do not need to have a shotgun wedding in the Little White Wedding Chapel to experience the true excitement of Las Vegas. Let your inner wild child out and visit the casinos, shows and the famous Bellagio fountains; hopefully you will win some money to get married life off to the perfect start. If you feel like really going for it, hire a suite and truly enter into the rock star spirit of things. The best parts of other countries are on offer too. Visit the Venetian hotel and take a gondola ride through the canals that run within the establishment, before taking a trip up the Eiffel Tower ensconced within the Paris hotel. There are so many things to see and do in Vegas that you may never want to leave!

4. South Africa

For those who are looking for a particularly adventurous honeymoon, what better way to do this than going off on a safari? See if you can spot the big five – the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, rhinoceros and the leopard. The Big Five are named thus because they are usually difficult to spot and appear to have a dangerous nature. One of the biggest game reserves available to visit is the Kruger National Park, which can be seen through a tour guided group or by helicopter and Jeep. Either way it is a memorable honeymoon in the making, so get your camera at the ready.

5. Thailand

If you are hoping to get far away from memories of organising and stressing about your wedding, then Thailand is the perfect destination. Trek through the jungle, taking a ride on an elephant along the way. If you get a chance, visit the Phulay Bay; a reserve which offers the chance to soak up both culture and wildlife. A tour to Naga Mountain is also available, which ends with an amazing view. There is a range of accommodation on offer in the country, so whether you are looking to splash out or are on a bit of a budget, there is somewhere ideal for you. So when bogged down in wedding plans, picture the honeymoon of your choice to focus your mind on what is to come.
