Make the most of Burma, Saigon, Cambodia and more with these unique honeymoon ideas from Nick Pulley, founder of Selective Asia
Honeymooners are often the easiest victims when it comes to travel clichés. But with many couples trying to combine their trip with a once-in-a-lifetime journey, there's no shortage of unusual and inspirational ideas reckons Nick Pulley, founder and managing director of Selective Asia...
You could have your union blessed by a Buddhist monk against the backdrop of the temples of Bagan in Burma. Why not venture into untamed jungle and visit a community project working within the wildlife-abundant Cardamom Mountains of Cambodia? Or see endangered orangutans in their natural habitat in one of Borneo's important eco-tourism hotspots?
"For many people flying long distances to be beach or pool-bound for two weeks is proving less of a draw and, when you take into account the investment made in a honeymoon in both time and money, we gets lots of couples wanting to combine a touch of luxury and indulgence while also seeing a part of the world that might have long been on their travel bucket list," explains Nick.
"That's why we place great emphasis on constantly seeking out ideas in the countries we feature that offer newlyweds the best of both worlds. So whether it's a colonial-style riverboat cruise in Burma, a rainforest lodge in Borneo, a night-time Vespa tour of Saigon, the laidback charms of Laos, or catching a private speedboat to Cambodia's ultra-luxury Song Saa Resort, we are always on the lookout for the new, the unusual and, of course, the romantic."
