Couples can spend hours as they wander through Phuket, because they will simply lose track of time as they spot one magnificent view after another.

  1. Ohhh this reminds me of the days when we were shortlisting our honeymoon destination and we pinned Maldives… though my hubby was not keen on it but after going there he just loved the place and was thanking me that i convinced him to visit this amazing island paradise.

  2. These photos are amazing! I had friends visit Phuket for their honeymoon. It seemed luxurious and exotic then and still does. Thanks for helping us all dream and step outside our comfort zone!

  3. If I were to go on a second honeymoon and I could choose anywhere to go, I would choose Maldives based on how beautiful that water looks! Also to see the full moon causing the glow on the water would be amazing! Thanks for sharing these places I would have never known about!

  4. Love these suggestions. Borneo especially is calling my name with the various nature items you suggest! The beaches in the Philippines though are so lovely I’d like to go there as well!

  5. All of these places look beautiful and worth a visit whether or not you’re on a honeymoon. I think it really depends on what the couple enjoys doing and what kind of experiences they are looking for but Asia definitely has a lot to offer ?

  6. I have heard of Singapore, Bali, and Maldives as honeymoon destinations but Laos and Cambodia are new to me. Thanks for sharing this informative post.

  7. These are all beautiful places that I would love to visit. My niece went to Phuket, Thailand this past April, she said it was the best experience of her life.

  8. Being so far from the US I’ve never considered those as honeymoon destinations and clearly, I’m missing out! I’m a certified scuba diver and I’m positive some of those places would be heaven to dive in.

  9. Thanks for the list, there are some good choices, my first picks in Asia, maybe Hokkaido, Japan; some absolutely beautiful beaches in the Phillippines, Bali and Maldives are popular, of course! @knycx.journeying
