If you’re about to get married (or dreaming of the day), you’re likely interested in the top honeymoon destinations in the world. The honeymoon has now become a symbolic part of marriages in western cultures, with couples embarking upon their new lives together by first enjoying a long vacation alone together. This serves equally as a celebration of their wedding, and also as a chance for them to further strengthen their bonds as a couple.
While the honeymoon location is certainly dependent upon the couple in question, who may choose to venture to a country which is not a traditional honeymoon spot per se, but rather of personal significance to them, the top honeymoon destinations in the world generally involve tropical paradises and relaxing on the beach. What better way to let go of the stress leading up to the wedding, and for the newlyweds to enjoy each other’s company, than by being pampered and restful in a gorgeous tropical paradise for two weeks?
Our forthcoming list focuses more on broad locations (countries), than on individual places. If you’d like to consult a list with more targeted potential honeymoon locations, check out our piece on The 10 Best Travel Places For Your Honeymoon, for ideas and locations that are a little more diverse than the forthcoming list, though they won’t be for everyone (such as going for a ski vacation in Aspen).
Let’s put the focus back on our current list for now though, and begin our countdown of the top honeymoon destinations in the world. Pack well for the trip, as you may not ever want to come back once you start.
