When it comes to honeymooning, the world really is your oyster. You can go for a city-moon or beach-moon; a honey-mountain-moon or even a honey-home-moon. But, this year, some of the places that are catching grooms' eyes for the places to culminate their wedding and kick off their lives together are some real pearls. 


New Orleans

This 300-year old city is thriving. New Orleans is once-again drawing attention for its European, Caribbean, Latin American and African roots, and not the impact of Hurricane Katrina. From the French Quarter to the Garden District new restaurants, hotels and bars are making this town known for voodoo and juju, one of the best in the country. 



Colombia's most famous port city has long been a traveler's favorite. The candy-colored colonial buildings, the environmental wonders of the Rosario Islands and the tropical party vibe all make this town a must-go this year and every year. Better yet, Cartagena is a perfect spot from which to venture to Colombia's other wonders like Bogotá andthe Pacific Coast rainforests.


Route of Parks

This network of 17 national parks in Chile make the Route of Parks the ideal adventure honeymoon. Spanning from the picturesque Lake District to the snowcapped peaks of the Patagonia to the Beagle Channel, you will not tire of the route's 1,500-mile adventure trail.



Thanks to the opening of the Chinese high-speed rail to the more far-flung corners of western China, you can now experience more of China's wonders of the world. From the western-most parts of the Great Wall to the Rainbow Mountains of  Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park to the newly-restored Jiayuguan fort, Gansu is for those who've wanted to experience the Silk Road first-hand. 



We all remember Prague as our first peek behind the Iron Curtain and it has never lost its luster. But, 2018 marks the 100th birthday of this fabled city and the 50th anniversary of the Prague Spring, so the city is pulling out all of the cultural stops. From museum exhibitions to concert presentations, a honeymoon in Prague will tickle all of your culture-vulture fancies.  



For a taste of the exotic and luxurious, look no further than this northern African port. Morocco has invested billions in making it one of Africa's most coveted destinations and Tangier has been one of the countries biggest benefactors. With luxury resorts like the Ritz-Carlton and Banyan Tree, and a high-speed rail line to get you to Casablanca and Rabat, Tangier is where to turn your honeymoon into a retreat.
