We are getting hitched in under 3 months… which means it’s about time we started planning our honeymoon. To get things underway we have come up with a list of the top honeymoon destinations of 2017 to help the ‘choosing a country’ part of the plans that little bit easier.
So, if you are like us and getting married (firstly, congratulations) and secondly we hope this post can help you choose where in the world to have your honeymoon.
1. For the Island Life: Mauritius
Many people know Mauritius for its beaches and clear waters, but it is so much more than that. A small country, just about 1.5 times the size of Delhi, you’d be amazed at what all one can experience here. From water sports, to dolphin spotting and shopping at the stunning waterfront – this place is an island lovers dream!

2. For the City Lovers: Japan
For those that love to explore large cities, with a unique twist, then Japan is the one for you. We recommend having your honeymoon during the springtime when the cherry blossoms are in bloom making your trip that little more romantic.

3. For the Snow Bunnies: Iceland
Pack your leggings and comfy jumpers and head to Iceland for your honeymoon. Largely uninhabited, Iceland’s scenery changes every few minutes. You can explore volcanic, lunar-look landscapes to green, lush fields or breathtaking waterfalls and massive Blue Lagoon hot springs all in one day! Did somebody just say Iceland road trip here we come?
