5. Buenos Aires:
Argentina, the land of fine red wine, tasty argentine steak and the sexy tango, has to be a good choice. From breathe taking architecture, a vibrant and buzzing café culture and impromptu tango performances on street corners. You’ll never be bored in Argentina.

4. Sri Lanka:
Often referred to as ‘India for Beginners’, Sri Lanka is an ideal honeymoon destination for those couples who want to experience something different.
Like India, Sri Lanka is a sprawling, busy and vibrant country full of food, smells and daily rituals that will blow your mind. When you combine this with the inviting ocean, tropical sea breeze and welcoming smiles of the Sri Lankan people, it’s easy to see why newlyweds are choosing to spend their honeymoons here.
As you dip your toes into the white powdery sand and cool off in the clear, warm, sea life filled ocean water. You’ll breathe a sigh of relief that you selected Borocay in the Philippines as your top honeymoon destination for 2012.
Whether you’re looking for cosmopolitan nightlife, that sees’ you dancing on tables tops until dawn. Or early nights followed by glorious sun drenched mornings overlooking the beach of your dreams. Borocay in the Philippines delivers it all.
2. Chiang Mai:
Because of its deep north location and the absence of any sandy beaches to sprawl on, Chiang Mai in Thailand is often overlooked as a honeymoon destination. But if you’re a culture vulture or adrenaline enthusiast, you’ll find Chiang Mai will meet all those needs and then some.
With everything: from traditional cooking classes and hill tribe treks, to elephant training and quad biking. Choosing to spend your honeymoon in Chiang Mai guarantees that the pictures you have to share with your friends and loved ones will be a little bit different than the usual beaches and sunsets.
Bali remains a favourite honeymoon destination for 2012 for very clear reasons. You can enjoy a five star full luxury break in Bali Indonesia for a fraction of the cost of somewhere like the Maldives. And depending on which time of year you decide to celebrate your nuptials, the prices for renting a staffed villa and being waited on hand and foot for 2 whole weeks, will blow you away.
The island of Bali is small and perfectly formed and with a little bit of research and a patient personal driver (another bonus of choosing a less expensive country to honeymoon in), you can travel to a different part of this idyllic paradise island every day.
When the last guest has left, the photographer has been paid, and the only two people left on the dance floor are you and your new life partner. The idea of two weeks of relaxation can be the only thing still keeping you going. Any of these destinations is a winner for your honeymoon in 2012. The only decision you have left to make is – which one.?
