Five Amazing Alternatives to the Standard Ho-Hum Honeymoon

Mongolian Yurt

Looking for an alternative to the typical, tourist-ridden honeymoon destinations? Here are five great alternatives from the UK's

  • Quaint and Quirky - Check out for affordable, not-so-shabby chic digs in and around Wales.  Stay in unique, rehabbed properties like a secluded English cottage, an old railway carriage or a gypsy caravan.
  • Romantic, with a Note of Luxury - For more traditional romance with not-so- traditional spa luxuries, check out The spa offers LA VINOTHÉRAPIE® baths with red wine vine extracts.
  • The Path Less Traveled -  Namibia is the lesser known tourist destination in South Africa and can be a great alternative to more popular safari spots.  Visit for more information on their secluded elevated thatched roof suites, villas and camps that look out over the breathtaking Etosha Pan.
  • Humanitarian Adventure - Want to give something back on your honeymoon without giving up luxury? Spend your nights on a luxury ranch in Brazil or a cruise to Thailand, and  your days teaching and helping with community projects or conservation work.  Go to www.handsupholidays.comfor more information.
  • Rough It Yurt Style. Camp in a romantic Mongolian style yurt, nestled in the mountains of central Portugal. Camping never sounded so good! Explore the mountains and enjoy the scenery - without giving up hot running water, your own private bathroom or a comfy double bed. Visit

And remember  - there's no alternative to good travel insurance. To protect your perfectly-planned honeymoon, visit to Travel Insurance Services for more information.
