Here are the 10 best Romantic Honeymoon Destinations!

1. Chiang Mai Yii Peng Festival, Thailand

Yang Tee Mon 

The Festival of Lights is celebrated all around Thailand with Loi Krathongs (lotus-shaped receptacles) released on water to bring luck and fulfill wishes. Instead of water vessel, Chiang Mai people release thousand of lighted lanterns in the sky while making a wish. The sky transforms itself in a wonderful and surreal sea of little lanterns floating away. The spectacle is mesmerizing.

2. Paris, France

Who could ask for a better honeymoon destination than Paris, "The City of Love?" We happen to agree with Audrey Hepburn when she said, "Paris is always a good idea." Its iconic monuments like the Eiffel Tower, museums like the Louvre and landmarks like the Notre Dame Cathedral are certain to dazzle visitors.

3. Santorini, Greece

Experience your honeymoon in Greece on its beautiful islands. Gorgeous beaches, endless panoramic views, romantic dining and gorgeous sunsets await you.

4. Hawaii, USA

Known all over the world for its simple yet outstanding beauty, Hawaii is a holiday destination like no other – but which is the best island to visit? From Kauai to Maui, choosing the right island, especially for first timers, is a tough task, but seeing as they’re all as beautiful as the next, what separates them apart? The islands of Hawaii experience thousands of visitors every year, but the paradise region still manages to retain the natural, volcanic feel it was created with, unlike many other top vacation destinations worldwide.

5. Venice, Italy

Venice is one of the world’s most romantic holiday destinations – and while most people immediately think of gondolas, red roses and canals, these are merely a hint of the incredible experiences and sites that the real Venice has to offer.

6. Underwater Restaurant, Maldives

This restaurant is one of a kind. The service is incredible and the views are amazing. As you sit to eat your meal you are surrounded by different fish and small sharks that are swimming around the glass. It is spectacular and unique.

7. Colombia

A Colombia honeymoon can wrap you in colonial charm, ecotourism, island adventures, city excitement, and much more at very affordable rates. And Colombia is not far from the USA: Flying time from Miami is 2.5 hours, from Houston it's 3.5 hours, and from NYC it's 5.5 hours. Reaching into both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, Colombia boasts vacation venues ranging from beaches and islands to snowy Andean mountain tops.

8. Cinque Terre, Italy

The Cinque Terre region of Italy is often considered a hidden gem of the country. With its unique blend of historical and colorful hillside towns, gorgeous beaches, sun-drenched vineyards, hiking trails, fantastic restaurants, and fabulous water sports activities, The Cinque Terre is an ideal getaway for couples seeking a complete escape and a honeymoon that will be remembered forever.

9. Fiji

A romantic honeymoon should be your own private heaven. A place where romance wraps around you like a cloak; where you need make no decisions; where everything is provided for you, yet solitude is as easy to find as the sea. This is why Turtle Island Fiji is the perfect getaway for newlyweds.

10. Beach Horse Riding, New Zealand

Golden Bay stretches along the coastline to the shores of Wharariki Beach. The area boasts a funky arts and cafe scene that also offers fascinating historical experiences, located against a beautiful natural environment. The beaches of Golden Bay are... well, golden, and look even more beautiful on horseback. Afterwards, cool down at the sacred Te Waikoropupu Springs outside Takaka.
