More and more newlywed couples are opting for city breaks when it comes to their honeymoons. Even though cruise trips and tropical vacations are still popular honeymoon options, city breaks can also offer a lot of enjoyable activities that other honeymoon trips can’t offer.
If you would like to take a break from your nature-filled vacations then you might want to consider a luxurious city honeymoon. From the bustling nightlife to the luxe spa treatments, a city honeymoon can definitely appeal to anyone.
Before you decide to spend your honeymoon in a vibrant city, it’s important to determine first if a city break is truly for you and your new spouse. There are still a lot of couples who would rather spend their honeymoon away from the fast-paced nature of the city and opt for a quieter environment.
Another advantage of a city honeymoon is that you don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to get there. Since most major cities can be reached by plane, bus or boat, you don’t have to spend time looking for inroads and detours which you probably have to do if you were going to a more remote destination.
There are many great city destinations that you can go to so be sure to do plenty of research. New York, Milan and Tokyo are only some of the popular cities in the world that you can choose to visit.
Honeymoon vacations are ideally meant to last for at least a couple of weeks. After all, you just spent an equal amount of time working hard to get your wedding in order, and chances are this could be the last intimate trip in a long time that you and your new spouse can take. Basically, you deserve to have a luxurious time savoring your exotic destination and each other’s company.
However, there are some cases wherein you may be forced to take a shorter honeymoon, due to budget or schedule constraints. If you cannot afford to go off in a long honeymoon, a short weekend honeymoon may be the best solution. Contrary to popular belief, short weekend honeymoons do not have to be rushed and hectic. The key to a successful weekend honeymoon lies in planning.
Before you decide on a destination, sit down with your spouse and make a list of the things that you want from your honeymoon vacation. In making the list, try to be consistent and realistic. For instance, if you primarily want to surround yourself with pristine nature then it might not be a good idea to wish for some exciting nightlife as well. Since you only have a couple of days to spend on your honeymoon, you wont’ have a chance to move from one place to another constantly.
The best thing about a short honeymoon is that you get the chance to splurge in your accommodation. Just be sure to do some research beforehand to make sure you are getting accommodation that has plenty of amenities.
