Alternative honeymoon inspiration
Make your honeymoon one to remember with Rickshaw. Escape into the rainforest of Borneo, take a step back in time in Cuba, watch the day break from the top of a volcano in Indonesia or lose yourselves in the wilderness of Canada. Whererever you choose, you’ll stay in small, charming accommodation, from hidden jungle lodges to beach cabañas just footsteps from the waves. Along the way, you’ll have the chance to meet welcoming tribal communities and get a glimpse beyond the surface of your destination.
Throw yourselves into Vietnam
Feel the unstoppable energy of Vietnam, travelling from its tip to its toe. Zip through the backstreets of Ho Chi Minh on a vintage Vespa tour, weave between street stalls selling steaming bowls of pho, wander amongst the colourful lanterns of laid-back Hoi An and drift through the emerald waters of Bai Tu Long Bay aboard a traditional Chinese junk boat. For a real adventure, trek to the welcoming hill tribes of Sapa or take some time out on pint-sized Palm Island, home to only one resort.
Enjoy the Latin flavour of love in Mexico
Latin Americans are known to be passionate and fiery – in their food, their dance and most importantly, when in love. Come and soak up all of this along with an intoxicating history, fun-loving cities and stunning beaches to unwind on. Immerse yourself in a different culture in colonial Merida, explore beautiful jungles around Palenque and get some alone time on a secluded beach on Isla Holbox. Mexico is the perfect post-wedding wind-down.
Soak up the old-world romance of Cuba
Stranded in bright blue Caribbean waters, Cuba is packed with nostalgia and natural beauty. Stroll past crumbling colonial buildings in Havana, explore the city in a vintage car, grab a mojito in one of Hemingway’s old haunts and salsa with the locals on the church steps of Trinidad. Crammed with character and spirit of revolution, it’s a heady destination for a honeymoon. After exploring the cities and rolling tobacco hills, hit one of the sugar-soft beaches and stretch out in the sunshine.
Retreat to the wilderness of Canada
Leave all the hustle and bustle of wedding planning behind you and take to the forests, mountains and lakes of wild Canada. It’s the perfect destination for post-wedding rest and relaxation with a spot of outdoor adventure, yummy culinary delights and breathtaking views around every corner. Simply switch off and find yourself surrounded by mother nature – kayak with killer whales and spot bears foraging for food, hike your way across the Rockies with a dip in any one of the many emerald lakes.
Find a private island paradise in Malaysia
With cosmopolitan cities, delicious local cuisine, rolling tea plantations and ancient jungles, Malaysia is a brilliant bet for a honeymoon. After trekking through the treetops and weaving between the street food hawkers in Penang, hit the beach for a taste of castaway romance. The turquoise waters off Malaysia’s coastline are scattered with tiny tropical islands. Swing in a hammock, sink your toes into powdery sands and feel like you have the whole world to yourselves.
Take a walk on the wild side in Borneo
Set off on a honeymoon adventure, exploring the rainforests and mountains of Borneo. Climb to the top of Mount Kinabalu for a sunrise to remember and glide along jungle rivers into the heart of the rainforest. Sleep in hidden lodges, meet cheeky orangutans, relax in hot springs and spend some time with the local tribes of Sarawak. After a journey into the wild, collapse on the sands of Lankayan Island, a pocket-sized paradise surrounded by bright blue seas.
Feel the spirit of Indonesia
Indonesia is a cluster of islands swirled with mystical spirit. Discover the stupas of Borobodur at sunrise, climb to the top of rumbling Mount Bromo, get lost in the endless rice paddies of Ubud and come face to face with Komodo Dragons. Gentle and laid-back, Bali is somewhere that will tug at your heartstrings, from sunset beaches to temples and welcoming villages. For a tropical twist, head to the Gili Islands, with no roads, no traffic and strictly no stress.
Spice up your honeymoon in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka might be small, but it’s packed with spirit. Wander amongst misty tea plantations, set off in search of elephants in the twilight, amble between candy-coloured temples and travel by train across the sweeping countryside. Learn to whip up an authentic curry with the locals, climb Adam’s Peak for sunrise and explore remote rainforests. After all the action, hit the tropical beaches lining the coast, sleep in atmospheric beach bungalows with the ocean just moments from your door.
