Getting married soon and need some help brainstorming honeymoon destinations? Fear not because we’ve got you covered with some of the top honeymoon spots for 2020. So without further ado, let’s take a look at where you should go after you say, “I do”.
Although a honeymoon in Paris may sound like a bit of a cliche, there is a reason this city is considered one of the most romantic places on the planet. From cheesy Insta-fodder like posing in front of the Eiffel Tower to perusing the vintage stores and coffee shops in the wonderfully bohemian and historic district, Le Marais, there are plenty of things to see and do in Paris.
With romance oozing out of the cobbled streets and cosy wine bars on every corner, it’s a wonderful place to snuggle up with a loved one and soak up the atmosphere. Just make sure not to visit in the crippling heat of summer as the city is pretty much deserted, with locals flocking south to enjoy the beaches.
Sydney combines all the convenience of city life with the simpler pleasures such as going for a nice coastal walk or relaxing at the beach. Honeymooners who want to enjoy fine dining and hot weather will love Sydney whilst active types who love the outdoors will have plenty of opportunities for activities.
Much like Paris, Sydney also has some iconic locations for honeymooners. From climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge to watching a show at the Opera House, there are plenty of bucket list items that can be ticked off here.
The capital of Hungary is a fabulous destination for honeymooners thanks to its breathtaking ancient architecture and incredible natural beauty. Between Buda Castle, the Hungarian Parliament Building, Fisherman’s Bastion and Danube Promenade, there is sightseeing for days. Similarly to Paris, this city oozes history, character and culture that can be soaked up at your leisure. In short, it’s a perfect city break for newlyweds.
Thailand is well known for its glorious beaches and breathtaking natural beauty, so it stands to reason that it’s a pretty desirable destination for honeymooners. Whether it is island hopping, diving, temple hunting or night market exploring, there is an endless list of things to enjoy. Of course, another huge reason to spend some time in Thailand is the local food. So make sure you do some research and try at least one fabulous thai food restaurant in Phuket.
Hawaii offers a plethora of islands and resorts that are perfect for honeymooners. Whether you want to sit back and relax in the lap of luxury or fancy getting active, there are plenty of options available. For nature lovers and thrill seekers, there are countless outdoor activities such as surfing, hiking and kayaking that can be enjoyed. So by day, you can explore the islands and enjoy some physical challenges, whilst by night you can soak up the unique local culture and get treated like royalty at one of the many luxury resorts Hawaii has to offer.
After planning a wedding, the idea of planning anything else (let alone something as important as a honeymoon) can feel a bit overwhelming. But don’t let the idea of planning, organising and booking put you off. Once you’ve picked the right destination for you and your betrothed, you’ll soon see that everything else slots in to place.
Of course, the destination you choose will depend on a number of factors, namely budget and time constraints. If you have the funds, however, why not try and visit a few destinations? Whether it’s Paris and Budapest or Phuket and Sydney, splitting your honeymoon across two destinations can give you double the adventure, double the culinary delights and double the fun!
