I've been musing on Honeymoon ideas that will make memories for a lifetime - and make your wishes come true. Whether you are on your first marriage or third, a new partnership, or just a stylishly romanic soiree, you will want to check out these ideas for romantic travel.
There are many destinations around the world for a honeymoon adventure, have you considered an exciting and romantic festival theme?
Make Your Wishes Come True in THAILAND
If you plan on lighting wishing lanterns at your wedding, consider honeymooning where the tradition began. Each full moon in November, northern Thailand hosts the Yi Peng Festival, when locals release thousands of paper wish lanterns into the sky. The night before, the whole country celebrates Loi Krathong by floating candlelit, flower-covered baskets (called krathongs) down rivers. Head to Chiang Mai to experience both: Celebrate your new beginning by sending a krathong down the river Ping. (Legend has it that couples whose lanterns stay close as they drift away will be together forever.) The next night, join the thousands who send lit-up lanterns toward the stars near Mae Jo University, or go tor a more intimate vibe at the luxe Four Seasons Chiang Mai, which honors the full moon with a barbecue and lantern release by a peaceful lake. ~ Brandon Presser
Three other FESTIVALS you may want to consider:
During the two weeks before Lent, catch people wandering Piazza San Marco in masks and elaborate costumes by day and partying at grand masquerade balls by night.
Have a messy, crazy-fun time throwing colored powder and dyed-water balloons on other festival-goers in this Hindu celebration held each March in cities and towns around India.
Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Music, theater, stand-up – you’ll find it all at the world’s largest arts gathering, which takes over the Scottish capital for three weeks in August.
