Visiting Bora Bora @ French Polynesia (yaaay!!) has become one of the few things in my wish list. The locations seen on the movie “Couples retreat” was an extra topping on this idea which is already sleeping in my mind. An exciting honey moon destination though not many know about it or prefer to go there. My first encounters to know this place was with one of my friend and it happened at the talks of planning for a honey moon.
We spent long hours on researching what would be one of the best spots for a couple to go for their honeymoon, yet another thing in mind was not to choose a place that couples largely prefer to go. Something “hatke” was on our minds. Topping the lists of suggestions from friends were Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Dubai …. “Huh these are just not me”, I thought
Post some Google work and using own brains came up an awesome list of Hawaai, Tahiti, Paris, Jamaica, Vegas, and Africa phew!! the options were getting larger and making things more difficult . Some things that came in handy were tips like -
1. Go by your personality/preference - tropical, city, beach, mountain, safari, desert... This will help narrow down your destination right away.
2.Expenses – travel, accommodation and miscellaneous money you plan to spend there becomes more important factor on deciding your spot
3.Weather - yet important factor when picking your location.
4.Tourist Season - though off season travel might earn you benefits, you could also lose/miss upon the most happening events of the place you are visiting. So choose if you want to go there off season or on peak season (obviously would require advance planning ahead)
5.Activities - narrow down which types of special activities you would like to do while on your honeymoon. For activities such as clubbing, golf, skiing, scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking... you need to pick a location that specializes in that activity. This could mean picking the one resort on an island that has a top-notch golf course, but it can also mean switching to a better location.
And last but not the least you want to spend your most valuable time romanticizing with your spouse. So make sure you take special care of how do you plan to make your honeymoon trip the most special for each other.
Hence came up my most favorite two spots Bora Bora and Hawaii. Dreams do come true they say, hoping that so does my wish to go to these places at some point in my life
Well this seems to be a good weekend as I started it by fantasizing and writing about my dream honeymoon destination (blushes!!)
