We are doing 3 weeks in Southeast Asia–starting out in HK, then heading to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, and finishing up in Thailand.

While I’ve been to SEA, FH has not. We’ve done most of the Continental U.S. and Europe separately and as a couple so we wanted to try some place completely new. After all the stress of the wedding, it will be nice to get on the other side of the world.

jazzybee26:  We went to Colorado for two weeks skiing! We live at the beach, and my Darling Husband has a job that has him traveling to tropical places all year so we spend a lot of time in what most consider “typical honeymoon destinations”. My Darling Husband *loves* to ski and so that was his one major request.

I guess it won’t technically be a honeymoon as it won’t be right after the wedding (we’re doing a 1 year anniversary trip instead) but we’re going to Croatia. We picked it because it’s just damn pretty.

We’re spending 5 days in Las Vegas for our destination wedding and then heading straight to Europe. We will spend a week in London, Paris and Edinburgh. We chose Vegas because it’s a fun destination that’s not too far for the majority of our guests. We chose London as our main honeymoon destination because we’ve always wanted to go and our love of British culture was one of the first things we bonded over.

We’re doing a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas since we’ve never cruised, and I’ve never been out of the country.

We are going on a 9 day cruise to Bermuda and the Bahammas. I can’t wait 🙂 It’s a little over our budget, but I wanted a fun honeymoon and a cruise was the best for the money.

We’re spending 13 days in New Zealand (Australian bee). We were originally thinking of doing a cruise because we’ve never done one before, but then my dad and step mother gave us a cheque towards a holiday in New Zealand as our engagement gift. I love New Zealand and have always wanted to go back since my family holiday there over a decade ago and my Fiance has never been but really wanted to go. We decided it would be the perfect honeymoon, especially as the cheque covered our flights, car hire for 13 days and a ferry crossing. It means we have enough room to splurge on nicer hotels and eating out, which we couldn’t have afforded otherwise 🙂

jazzybee26:  Wow, that is pretty adventurous of you!!! I can’t wait to hear about your honeymooon! Mine was in Thailand. Why Thailand? We’ve both been to Europe many times but wanted to see more of the world before it became harder to do so. We’ve seen it on tv, heard raves from others who have been, love Thai food, love that it’s a great bang for the buck and has gorgeous beaches but also lots of cultural and city stuff to see/do. It was the trip of a lifetime. Since you haven’t been out of the country you are gaurunteed a big adventure no matter where he takes you. I hope you report back!!!!

We are doing 8 days in Bora Bora. Can’t wait! I originally wanted Jamaica, but Fiance was REALLY set on Bora Bora. I just decided to let him choose, picking my battles haha.

Mauritius -we picked it simply because it looks beautiful and we both really wanted to go there. We are going for two weeks but will be getting married there on the fourth day 😊

We are getting married around Christmas and my Fiance usually has 3 weeks off around Xmas and New Years. We are in Australia and the only ‘affordable’ or ‘reasonable’ airfares around Christmas time are to Asia… Originally we wanted to go to South America maybe 6+ months after the wedding but now that the Zika virus is rampant and the fact there is not much straight info about it, we decided to axe going to South America 🙁

So… Now we are planning a honeymoon through some South East Asian countries including Singapore, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. We will be fitting in A LOT in 3 weeks.
