A honeymoon is a once in a lifetime experience, a special journey taken just after your wedding to the person of your dreams. And choosing where to go on honeymoon may be dictated by how much money you have to blow on this magical holiday, but it is also a reflection of who you are as a couple, what your travel style is and what your values are. There are the island paradise getaways, never-ending cocktails and glittering ocean views, ever popular with many honeymooners, and then there are those that just have to do something different, something daring and something completely out of the norm. Here are some of the most extreme ways to spend your honeymoon.
1. Back Packing through Vietnam
Vietnam is experiencing a massive boom in popularity among visitors from all over the world, and many couples are choosing to explore this exotic land. In many areas, poverty is a harsh reality and remote areas have little to absolutely no modern infrastructure whatsoever, never mind an ATM; running water is a luxury and electricity is non-existent. But the people are incredible, the scenery is breathtaking and the experience will define you as people.
Do not expect any 5-star luxuries: expect a language barrier, heat and humidity, expect local transport issues and no tourist infrastructure at all. Buy your meal from a floating barge or sidewalk vendor in the middle of the city, but as you venture out into the more rural areas, you will need to just go with the flow.
Perfect for an adventure of note – it will test your problem-solving skills and your new spouse and yourself will be able to have an opportunity to work together if things go wrong. It could be great, a completely life-altering experience, or a total disaster. But is not an extreme honeymoon for nothing.
