IF it was in MY Budget… and knowing you have to fly home in that direction anyhow (on the way home)…

I’d look at places like… The Maldives – Fiji – Bora Bora – Tahiti – or Hawaii

I think they’d all make for a very romantic Honeymoon !!

BUT if you guys are into adventure… then India would be a good choice (has your Hubby-2B ever been there?)

Hope this helps,

TO @Firework: I’m not the person to give you a lot of info on these Destinations (sadly)… as I’ve never been beyond North America.  BUT I’d LOVE to see em someday.

You can find out a lot of info I find by looking at the following resources (my go to list when planning any sort of vacation to somewhere new)

Wikipedia – great for an overview.  And it gives you the “click around” benefit… so you can learn as more as you go

Official Tourism Websites – Everyone has one now.  Countries / Regions / Cities.

And TripAdvisor… I will not travel any more without checking in on TA first.  They have it all.  Travel Guide – Reviews (on Accommodations – Restaurants – Attractions / Things to Do) – and they also have their Forums (like the Boards we have here on WBee) where you can post Questions and get answers from the Destination Experts & Locals who know the area best

And if you are flying (which you are)… Seat Guru is great as well to find out all kinds of info about airlines, planes, seating, etc.

Hope this helps,

@This Time Round:  i would suggest the maldives… but i am a little biased as we are going on our honeymoon there 😉 january is peak season there though so i definitely think it’s worth considering. they do have activities to do, but of course it’s more of a relaxing holiday than a city experience, so it really depends on what you want.

as for timing though, if you wanted to go for a honeymoon later in the summer as you said, i don’t think that would be bad at all – we are actually going to the maldives 5-6 months after our wedding and we don’t mind at all.

Don’t overlook South America! With it being summer there, you’ll get the fabulous warm weather and outdoor events. Cities like Lima, Peru and Buenos Aires, Argentina are full of beautiful old buildings/architecture and culture. Likewise, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are in Brazil and Uruguay. If you’re looking for European, Santiago, Chile feels very much like a modern European city. 

Full disclosure: Our honeymoon is definitely to Lima and Santiago with the possibility of a visit to Uruguary in February, 2014. 

So much to choose from!

I’d totally do Maldives or Seychelles or Boracay or something already over there that you might not want to travel that far to get to again!
