I just wanted to share, recently we went to fraser island for a holiday for 3 nights 4 days and it was awesome! So, John loved it SO much that he wants to go back for our honeymoon and believe me I have NO objections! Its was so nice there and seeing as it will be our honeymoon and we plan to stay for at least a week this time we'll be able to save up to do some more activities like whale watching, 4wd tours etc that we couldn't afford this time round. But even just sitting by the heated pool was soooo good! I just thought I'd share my excitement biggrin.gif biggrin.gif And also, where did you all go/are going for your honeymoon? I would love to go to new york city one day, but we really can't afford to do both just yet (maybe another holiday later??!!) so fraser it is!

Kezz.

Hi Kezz,

I went to Fraser Island for a week 3 years ago; I loved it! I did a 3-4 days tours by Cool dingo, it was really good. The rest of the time, I just spent time at the resort. The only thing I didn't like was the snake that lived 25mts from my villa.

For my honeymoon, I went to Southern Africa. I did South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. It was by far the best holiday I ever had. I can't wait to go back there. It was just amazing.

Sigh...if only I had any annual leave left...

We literally just came back from Thailand for our honeymoon. It was fantastic. We went to Chiang Mai, Phuket and Bangkok. Chiang Mai was my favourite - people food and the stuff we did was great. But of course, the beach in Phuket (Kata beach) was fantastic!!

I want to go back!!

Ooh this is one of the places we are thinking of going because we really want to stay in the over water bungalows or whatever you call them. Would you be able to send me some info!? If thats okay! smile.gif thanks!



Otherwise, it'll be somewhere tropical... we're looking at maldives, tahiti, mauritius - maybe something like Lizard Island , if we dont leave australia.

we've already been on trips to Fiji, port douglas, hayman island and Maui (twice! I am in love with that place) so we want to go somewhere different for our honeymoon - although I have no qualms in going to Maui again! (although probably not with this $$$ rate!)

We're cruising! 7 night South Pacific cruise to Noumea and Isle of Pines! As the ship leaves from Sydney, we'll probably spend a night or two there and we're thinking about heading to Melbourne after for the remainder of the week since we'll return from the cruise on a Tuesday. I'm so excited! It will be our first time "overseas" tongue.gif

Everyone's honeymoons sound so relaxing smile.gif We'll definitely be going to Fraser but I really want to have a longer honeymoon than just a week and go somewhere else. But I'm not sure, it's really all down to how much money we decide we can afford. It will probably cost about $3000 (accom, spending money, tours etc etc) all up. But then I figure, we aren't planning the most extravagant (expense wise) wedding so perhaps we will be able to afford to put a little more into our honeymoon? We'll see anyway! But I love hearing about what everyone else is doing.

I was planning on going to Hawaii, Mexico and then LA and Vegas. However, with the way the dollar is going I am starting to reconsider.
I have been to Fiji, Thailand, Bali and Brunei. So for the honeymoon I am now thinking the Maldives. Has anyone been there? Would they advise it for us? We love holidays that action packed and I would love an over water bure.

THanks

the escape travel site, that I found through clicking on Honeymoons on i do.. has some good info about such destinations. After reading the site, I think we might go for Tahiti!!

Some destinations accept US money /travellers cheques so the exchange rate would be the same. So be careful of that.
I want to go to the US again with FH, but will wait til the dollar is better. I was born there and am dying to take him back to Boston!

We're going to Hawaii then Detroit (to see family) and then to Vegas. Spending 3 weeks in the states. I'll admit we booked about 6 months ago when the dollar was better. We aren't going to let that spoil our honeymoon, we really need a break. We figure we are only going to have 1 honeymoon we may as well enjoy it (and then pay for it later! smile.gif )

I think its hard to have bad weather there... I mean even if it does rain, its sprinkles , the sun comes out and its like it never happened. although I havent been in their winter.

I am jealous...... i would go back to maui in a heart beat!!!
if you are on west maui, go to Aloha Mixed Plate Grill, good prices, good tasting food!! and cheeseburgers in paradise ! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
