Honeymoon destinations: November

From early snow (high Alps, North America, Hokkaido in Japan) to late sun (the Canaries, North Africa) there’s mixed fun to be had

The Middle East heat is cooling (Oman and Jordan) while much of southern Asia - India, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam - is dry, not too hot and full on with festivities. It's springtime in Tasmania, with warm climes in Argentina and Chile too.


Head to Berlin for huge markets, a festive atmosphere and a dash of WWII history

Schnell! Get to Berlin in November 2014 and you'll not only get all your shopping done at one of its abundant Christmas markets - from big hitters like Gendarmenmarkt and Schloss Charlottenburg to the more intimate Lucia in Prenzlauer Berg - but also you'll be in the city to witness the festivities on show to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The celebrations reach a climax on 9th November, when thousands of illuminated balloons that line the former course of the wall are symbolically released into the sky. Find out more about the celebrations here.


Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos are newlyweds' paradises: exotic, great value, and peppered with fine lodges and spas.

Cambodia is most pleasant December-February - but sights are at their busiest. Laos is best November-February, while Vietnam's summer monsoon ends in October, from when the south is warm and dry until spring

See each country on its own (ideally two weeks each) or combine all three - doable in a fortnight if you fly between the highlights; better in a month. The classic route goes from north to south Vietnam, along the coast (cruise amid the karst outcrops of Halong Bay on a junk), then up into Cambodia (explore the extraordinary temples of Angkor - perhaps by bike) before looping up into Laos - the place to sail along the Mekong, chill out in lovely riverside Luang Prabang and trek to remote hilltribes.

Florida, USA

The driest month for the Sunshine State sees temperatures still up near 30°C. Miami is Art Deco cool - the place for a beautifully hip honeymoon. For something uglier (but still romantic), hug a manatee! These lumbering sea cows overwinter in Florida's waters - snorkel with them at Crystal River.

Canary Islands, Spain

The lucky Canaries have an eternal spring-summer climate. Lanzarote has some of the best surfing beaches, and waves are biggest right now. The volcanic reefs and golden sands of Fuerteventura (20°C in Nov) make this a worthy rival.


The oppressive desert heat is lifting (though still 25-30°C), and cooler air erases the haze over the Hajar Mountains - so you can set out for sunny hikes. Among the dunes of the Sharqiya Sands you may catch a Bedouin camel race.

Patagonia, Argentina

Longer days and warming climes put Patagonia's spectacular scenery back on the map. Try Parque Nacional Los Glaciares for the magnificent Moreno glacier and Mount Fitz Roy, or Peninsula Valdés for world-class whale-watching.


November in India is ideal: monsoon skies have dried, days are hot but not unbearable, Goan beaches
are buzzing, the Himalaya is clear and inviting. Rajasthan is maybe most romantic: stay in a palace hotel, visit Pushkar's camel fair, and tag on Agra's Taj Mahal, the world's most romantic building.
