Honeymoons in India

If you're dreaming of a honeymoon where each day is a voyage of discovery then India could be the perfect location for you. With a myriad of ancient historical sites to visit, exotic wildlife to view, mountains to trek, gorgeous beaches to lounge on, markets and bazaars to ogle, tribal villages to visit, and deserts to cross, the hardest bit is where to start first.

With so many different regions to visit a honeymoon in India can be many different things. Regular flights from South Africa mean that you can be exploring this amazing part of the world in under 24 hours. Explore the 'golden triangle' which is full of stunning attractions, including the iconic Taj Mahal, the Amber Fort and the palace of the winds otherwise known as the Hawa Mahal. Visit the romantic city of Udaipur in Rajasthan, (it is your honeymoon after all) which is famous for its awe inspiring Lake Palace Hotel and also known as the 'Venice of the East'. The area also includes other fairytale forts and castles. Go snorkelling in the Andaman Islands, in the Bay of Bengal or take a trip to Mumbai where new meets old, and sky scrapers jostle for space amongst ram shackle bazaars and frantic street life. It's also the home of the film industry, known as Bollywood. With such a choice of things to do, you'll want to come back for more.

India Overview

If you fancy a honeymoon that combines sun, sea and sand with plenty of adventure and great food, then why not consider India for your honeymoon location. Whether you want to laze on the sun drenched beaches of Goa or trek the Himalayas, there's so much to do, that the biggest problem will be deciding what to do first.

With so many different regions to choose from, the only problem with a honeymoon in India is choosing where to go. Regular flights from Canada mean that you could be exploring this amazing country in around 15 hours. The spellbinding Taj Mahal tops the list of the attractions in India and if you're in that area a trip to Fetehpur Sikri is well worth it. Once the capital of the Mughal Empire during the 16th century, due to a lack of water, it was abandoned just 15 years later. New Delhi is fast and furious and seemingly chaotic but there are two distinct sides to it, one full of architecture inspired by Lutyen and the other full of narrow winding streets and ancient shrines. You can visit the Red Fort and the Jama Masjid which is India's biggest mosque. To escape the bustle of the cities why not spend the latter part of your holiday in a cool hill station such as Darjeeling or the breathtakingly beautiful Srinager with its Dal Lake that is covered with lotus lilies. Without doubt your time spent in India will be unforgettable.
