Wedding season is upon us and it’s time for those who are tying the knot to start thinking about where they want to go on their honeymoon! I know I sure have been.
With our wedding quickly approaching in less than six months, I’ve been trying to figure out the best honeymoon destinations in Asia.
Yes, that’s right – Asia.
Now I know most people tend to think of more traditional destinations like Hawaii or Paris, but Asia offers plenty of romantic places perfect for any newly wed getaway. From secluded beaches to towering cities, Asia really offers all and more with its many 5-star resorts and hotels, so today we’re going to look at the best honeymoon destinations in Asia!
The best places to honeymoon in Asia:
Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong
Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is the flagship property for one of the world’s leading hotel brands…and one of my personal favorites.
With on-point customer service at your finger tips, you know you’ll be in good hands. You can’t go wrong with whichever room category you choose, I’d say what matters more is that you splurge for one of their Harbour Rooms. With floor to ceiling windows, Victoria Harbour will dazzle you at all times of day and you’ll have your own private seats for the Symphony of Lights show each night. It is your honeymoon after all.
For those who aren’t looking to leave the hotel at all, the hotel offers full room service and plenty of dining options including Man Wah, their signature Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant with highly photogenic windows, and my personal favorite, The Mandarin Cake Shop, which became famous for being the first bakery to sell cronuts in Hong Kong.
