@Mrs Canuck:  I’ve always been terrified to go there because they have the highest number of snakes per square foot of any country in the world! I don’t think it’s a very common honeymoon spot, you may have trouble finding Western-type accomodations, like all-inclusive beachy resorts. If you haven’t been to Thailand, you might want to consider it – it’s much cheaper than other tropical beach countries but there’s still enough tourism that you would have a pretty easy time booking a honeymoon there. We have a lot of friends who have been there and it’s at the top of our list, we’re probably going the year after next. There’s a forum on Fodors where someone asked whether to go to Sri Lanka or Thailand:

My Mum is Sri Lankan and I went there when I was 12….not going to lie to you, I hated it and would never go back! But that said, I was staying with family in one of the smaller villages….and well, I was a stroppy preteen out of her comfort zone! 

How about the Maldives? Close, so very similar, but more touristy I believe 🙂

@MissBettsy:  We went to Dubai, the Maldives, and Sri Lanka on our honeymoon. We both agreed we will NEVER go back to Sri Lanka. Ever.

@gelaine22:  OMG that’s interesting! What did you not like about Sri Lanka? (I’m so curious, I don’t know anyone who’s been there before!)
