Best Place to Honeymoon - A Travel Agent's Advice

By Adam Costa
The best to place to honeymoon should provide a couple the chance to grow together; it should be a challenge that will help them learn to trust and rely upon each other. As a travel agent, I've seen far too many newlyweds spend over ten grand to support a week long trip to a remote island where they can hopefully spend a few days of peace and quiet before returning home to their new life.

So what do I recommend for couples looking for the ideal honeymoon location? Well, my wife and I did things a little differently...

Rather than break the bank on a trip to Bora Bora, we decided to take the long way home: a year long trip through Southeast Asia, India, Nepal and China. Our average monthly budget was fifteen hundred dollars, and in all honesty, we could have gone for less than that. During that year we hiked in the Himalaya, laid out on pristine beaches, sailed down the Mekong River, and generally partied like rock stars.

OK, so maybe you don't have a year. If I were forced to choose one country as the best place for a honeymoon, it would be Thailand. The combination of culture, cuisine, hiking, climbing and water sports are among the best in the world, and for many newlyweds (who've broken the bank on the wedding) Thailand provides great value for your money. A couple who are budget sensitive can expect to see this beautiful country for thirty to forty dollars a day, provided they travel slow and don't drink too much (for some reason a beer costs the same amount around the world).

If there is one piece of advice I can offer you, both as a travel agent and a married man, it's that you should take your time when traveling on your honeymoon. Try your best to take as much time as you can, as your travel costs tend to decrease the longer you travel. The best place to honeymoon is the one where you and your loved one can grow together, not apart.
