Congratulations on tying the knot. It’s time you embarked on an epic adventure with your partner and discovered the world with a brand-new perception. Here are 3 ideas to make your romantic honeymoon even more special.
1. Head into the Wild
During your romantic honeymoon, a trip into the wilderness would be ideal for nature lovers. And what better way to connect with your partner than by appreciating the great outdoors.
Big Five Safari
The Big Five in Africa includes the leopard, lion, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo. You can observe these majestic beasts in their natural habitat in game reserves across different parts of Africa. July to October is peak safari season and you can book a tour in South Africa, Tanzania, Botswana, Kenya, Namibia or Zimbabwe.
The UAE has some of the best desert safari tours. Surf the dunes in a 4X4, ride camels and experience Arab culture at its best. Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar offer some of the most popular desert safaris.
For a more relaxed and luxurious honeymoon, opt for honeymooning at a jungle resort. Bali, Indonesia; Koh Kood, Thailand; and Sigiriya, Sri Lanka all have the most amazing resorts nestled in the middle of untamed wilderness. You’ll feel close to nature without having to give up the comforts of the modern world.
2. A Romantic Honeymoon in a Winter Wonderland
The Northern Lights
When’s the last time you laid on the ground and stared at the star-studded night sky? Probably when you were a child, right? In Finland, you and your spouse can immerse yourself in that childlike state of wonder and observe the spectacular Aurora Borealis from the comfort of your warm and toasty glass igloos.
Pakistan is home to 5 of the 14 legendary eight-thousanders (mountains above 8000 meters). If you’re up for an adventure, how about head up north to brave the elements? If you’re not up for trekking or skiing, you could stay at a cozy resort at a hill station. Here, you’ll have great views of majestic peaks that you can enjoy over a cup of coffee.

3. Revisit Your Childhood and Visit a Theme Park
Let’s not associate the magical kingdom with kids only. Adults can, and should, experience the wonder that Disney has brought to the world. You can stay at their luxurious hotel, enjoy parades, live performances and dine at Disneyland’s finest restaurants. All amidst your favorite characters that you probably grew up watching and admiring.
For couples with a soft spot for Hollywood movies and entertainment, a trip to Universal Studios would be loads of fun. The Universal Theme Parks & Resorts are headquartered in Florida, USA, but are located in several other countries including Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Russia and China.
Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden
