Newlyweds prefer adventurous honeymoons

wedding ringsA new poll showed – maybe surprisingly – that newlyweds prefer an adventurous honeymoon instead of a lazy beach trip (to the Caribbean for instance).

81 per cent of Britons want an adventurous trip of a lifetime, searching ‘unique and adventurous ways’ to start their life as a married couple, and only 12% will go for a relaxing beach holyday. “And, despite the economic doom and gloom, only three per cent of people said they would opt for a budget break while only four per cent said they would opt for a ‘mini-moon’, or short break.”

“Unique Honeymooner’s editor Sarah Baxter said: ‘We have had to wade through the oil slick of spa hotels and petal baths to uncover experiences that will really deliver on this new trend.’”

The final top resulted from the poll is, as quoted by DailyMail:

Unique Honeymoons’ hotspots for 2012:

  1. Tanzania – ‘Combine the undeniably dreamy beaches of Zanzibar with the two million wildebeest charging across the Serengeti’
  2. Burma – ‘This newly opening nation offers culture, temples, lake-side lodges and wedding blessings from Buddhist monks
  3. Borneo – ‘Exotic jungle, spicy food, orang-utans, glorious (and great value) boutique hotels, with perfect beaches too
  4. Namibia – ‘The best place to board a hot-air balloon, for dawn desert views and a champagne breakfast
  5. Japan – ‘Embrace the tradition of ‘hadaka no tsukiai’ (naked companionship) in a steamy hot spring
  6. Ikaria, Greece – ‘This isle sees a fraction of the visitors of nearby Santorini, but the seaside sunsets are just as good, and the tavernas half the price
  7. Western Australia – ‘A new flying safari around the Kimberley (from April 2012) will take newlyweds to the region’s remotest Outback
  8. Lake District – ‘A wild swim in the remote waters of Langstrath Beck will elevate mood and libido
  9. Argentina – ‘Learn to tango in Buenos Aires, stay in wine lodges around Mendoza and camp out in the wilds of Patagonia’
  10. Kyrgyzstan – ‘For a honeymoon with bragging rights, cosy up in a lakeside yurt and ride across the Central Asian plains
