Top 8 Bollywood-Inspired Honeymoon Locations
1. Siem Reap, Cambodia
This Cambodian city is full of history. Siem Reap sits at the entrance to many of Cambodia’s famous ancient temples, including Angkor Wat, just a short tuk-tuk (min taxi) ride away. Nothing is more romantic than watching the sunrise over the ancient temples at Angkor Wat, except maybe the hot air balloon rides offered that take you high above the temples. Back in the city, wander through the stalls of homemade crafts at the Old Market and finish the day with a candlelit dinner in Siem Reap’s center.
2. Tabanan Regency, Bali, Indonesia
Bali’s incredible scenery is perfect for a romantic trip. Tabanan Regency, on Bali’s southern shores, is perhaps the Indonesian island’s most romantic spot. Check out the Tanah Lot temple complex right on the water’s shores. Sit back on the rocky shoreline with your bae and watch the sun dip right into the ocean as the sky turns into a myriad of colors. Sounds ideal to us.
3. Hoi An, Vietnam
Wander down Hoi An’s old town, with lantern-lit streets and cozy cafes on every corner. Dine by the riverside of Hoi An, or cycle your way through the Old Town, whose streets are open to bikes only. Hoi An was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site for its rich history and culture. The city was also nicknamed the Venice of Asia. The charming town’s winding riverside streets full of art and food are the perfect backdrop for your romantic getaway with your significant other.
4. Coron, Philippines
Why not spend your romantic getaway on a (nearly) secluded island? Coron is an island in the Philippines that, while hard to get to, is the ideal romantic getaway for you and that special someone. With crystal clear blue seas and the softest white sand, and without the loud crowds of many other beaches, this tropical vacation has everything you need. The area is more rural, so don’t expect to find big, all-inclusive resorts, or even too many hotels. This just makes it a cozier experience for you and your boo. Enjoy the hiking, snorkeling, swimming, and adventure all around Coron.
