Hope you all enjoyed my alternative ideas for your honeymoon yesterday … as promised here is Part 2!
As I said yesterday I have travelled quite a lot and spent a few years working as a travel consultant … so this is a subject I love 🙂
My first idea today for an alternative honeymoon destination is ….
As a travel agent I was always recommending Sri Lanka as a fantastic alternative to the traditional beach holiday as its such good value and has amazing scenery! Sri Lanka has had a turbulent past ( I would always recommend checking latest foreign office advice ) … but really has some of the most beautiful scenery and beaches in the world … plus amazing food!
If you don’t want to spend your entire time on the beach you can also go Elephant trekking or visit local tea plantations.
Flight Centre are currently offering packages at the stunning 5 star Eden Resort & Spa in Beruwela from £799 p/p…. but more budget hotels are available also.
If you want somewhere a little closer to home but that is fantastic value for money, compared to the traditional beach destinations in Spain & Greece … I’d thoroughly recommend Croatia. There are various areas … the Dubrovnik Coast in the south being the most popular. There is also great value to be had in the north of Croatia as well … flying into Pula with the budget airlines.
There are also some amazing sailing trips on beautiful old boats around the Croatian islands which are definitely worth a look … one of the companies I would recommend is http://www.onthegotours.com/
