Honeymoon destination HELP!
Posted 28 August 2008 - 10:07 AM
I'd really like to go somewhere special as we don't plan on having another "big" holiday for around 10 years (hoping to do the americas and Europe when Hannah is about 10)
so anyway, we really don't want to spend TOO much money on flights/accommodation but would like something memorable.
I've never been overseas, either has FH so there is a want there, but no idea where to go. we know there's an option to stay in Australia, but I'm not interested in Queensland as we'll take Hannah in a few years to do the themeparks etc.
if anyone can help with ideas, it would be really great!

If you have heard within a voice, the echoes of your own,
If you have felt a touch that stirs the longings of your heart,
And still feel the closeness in the moments you're apart.
If you have filled with wonder at the way two lives can blend,
To weave a perfect pattern that is seamless end to end,
If you believe some things in life are simply meant to be,
Then you have found your soul mate, your hearts own destiny.

I have been to all of them and they were beautiful.
I think that Thailand would by my first choice. My partner and I had the most amazing time there (it wasn't even our honeymoon). We stayed in Phuket.A place called Karon Beach, Just out of Patong. It was amazing, beautiful, relaxed and cheap! I think that our package deal only cost $3000 for both of us. Plus spending money of course.
You can get some amazing packages from travel agents. If you haven't planned an overseas holiday before or don't have alot of time to put together a package that includes flights, accommodation, insurance, transfers etc then I recommend going into a travel agents. They can help you plan a great holiday and save alot of stress.
Anymore questions just ask me.

It's worthwhile if you need a mix of expert opinion and user reviews.

Look into Cambodia it's cheap to fly to and amazing and you can go and see thousand year old temples and all of these old stone ruins in Siem Reap and we stayed in ridiculously deluxe accomm for $70 a night and really amazing meals in restaurants are like $5 a person with a cocktail at some places and bought loads of local jewelry silk nighties and dressing gown wrap things for so so super cheap way cheaper than thailand.
Of everyplace I have been in my life (we have travelled a lot as we are both self confessed travel addicts and do at least 6 weeks each year backpacking or flashpacking)
I enjoyed Cambodia the most and will def go back again next june/july. it's just so cheap, the people are amazing, it's such a full on different place to anywhere I have ever been before and a nice mix of luxury and adventure and relaxation and cool shopping and amazing people culture and history with the recovery since pol pot.
Really depends what you are looking for, what your budget is and what you want to be doing, i,.e relaxing, shopping, adventure? I just booked my honeymoon at east bedarra island which is much cheaper than bedarra and you get your own private everything.. you actually have that side of the island completely to yourself..lol so I can run around naked the whole time if I want >;)haha
Oh also south east asia is really different at different times of year, they have monsoon and in june phuket is kinda rainy.. well really rainy, hence we headed over to the east side islands from surat thani. I hated ko samui tho it was like the goldcoast in thailand.. the east side is still rainy same as cambodia that time of year (omg mosquito insanity!) but its more of a big thunderstorm in the arvo after a hot humid 35- 40 degree day.. oh yeah its hot as well.. hot an humid and muggy even at 4 in the morning so when it does rain, you're happy to just walk around in it going mmm relief..

In 10 days you can fit in a lot of stuff, and I understand why you want to go overseas - how special!!
Also Asia is close and reasonably affordable - even with the dollar being the way it is.
We went to Thailand for our honeymoon, it was wonderful. I would also consider Bali or even Malaysia - I hear they have some cool tropical places for romantic getaways. And you make it the way you want it - isolated and romantic, or party hard with cheap drinks.
Big city holidays, I would think about Hong Kong. Japan would be really good, but things a little more expensive since the economy has gone bonkers...
