Romantic Honeymoon Destinations in Asia

Asia is a continent that continues to inflame our senses; it's beautiful, diverse, and evocative and remains mysterious no matter how many times we go back. It's the perfect place for a haunting, happy honeymoon so we've picked out some stunning destinations throughout Asia for you.

Cambodia

Cambodia

Cambodia is a country stepped in beguiling history; tumultuous temples, sublime spirituality, endless forests, glorious beach hideaways and hidden coves render Cambodia a must-see destination. The gruelling, tragic history that formerly had Cambodia in its grip, the regime of Pol Pot and his genocide, still informs the air and yet the people are largely welcoming; equally intrigued by the foreigners who are beginning to flock to their country. Cambodia is perhaps most famous for Angkor Wat; the monument that Lara Croft flies through in the Tomb Raider franchise.

Siem Reap, Cambodia's chief city, offers the Victoria Angkor Resort and Spa but couples who head to Sihanoukville can try the Song Saa Private Island.

China

China

China's reputation is uniquely polarised; as one of the world's fastest emerging economies and oldest civilisations, China is a largely impenetrable expanse slowly opening to the rest of the world. The country is absolutely huge and Shanghai and Beijing are only part of what it has to offer. You won't be able to upload your honeymoon snaps to Facebook as its banned!

If you're a city slicker, Beijing offers the Red Wall Garden Hotel. The Mandarin Oriental in Sanya has received rave reviews and Shanghai's Les Suites Orient offers European flavour.

India

Taj Mahal, India

India has fascinated and enraptured people with its colour, exoticism and mystery for centuries. A wonderfully beautiful and seductive landscape, India is home to one of the world's most romantic monuments; the Taj Mahal.

If you want to stay near the Taj, as many honeymooners do, you'll need to stay in Agra. The Taj Mahal Palace is positioned in the cities heart.

Japan

Japan doesn't exactly scream romance but it's a fun, sophisticated city unlike anywhere on earth. Japanese society is a lively fusion of high-tech, gargantuan cities, spirituality and grand manners, dog cafes and karaoke bars. You can't forget the impact of sumo, sake and ramen noodles!

Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto are must-see places! Park Hotel Tokyo, the Grand Hyatt Hotel and the Hotel Monteray Ginza are all breathtaking choices.

Korea

South Korea

South Korea is similar to Japan but with a little more edge; here, people party and play as hard as they work. South Korea is easy to explore; Seoul is the main city and is full of fun whilst Busan is famed for its glorious beaches.

South Korea has its own honeymoon island; Love Island (Cheju Island).

Laos

Nestled next to Thailand, lovely Laos offers the best of Asia minus the crowds and big price tags. It's a beautiful place well worth adding to your itinerary.

Malaysia

Malaysia is a colourful marriage of many cultures; there's a strong Muslim influence that abounds here and calls to prayer can regularly be heard. The cities boast some of the best shopping plazas and if its wildlife and rainforests you're after, you'll find orang-utans here.

If you want wildlife, Sandakan in Sabah is the place to go.

Maldives

Maldives

The Maldives, with its electric blue seas and sleepy bays, has topped honeymoon lists for ages now and it's still a firm fixture.

The whole of the Maldives is basically geared up for love so you really can't go wrong. There's plenty of packages available; Kuramathi Island Resort, Kurumba and Diamonds Athuruga come highly recommended.

Myanmar

Myanmar

Myanmar is a mystery; a wild expanse of jungle and temples that is rarely visited by tourists. If you want to feel like Indiana Jones, Myanmar will make you feel that you exploring an entirely new territory.

Thailand

Thailand

Krabi, Phi Phi, Lipe, Lanta and Phuket are just some of Thailand's well known spots. Then there's crazy Bangkok and the hardworking people of Surin. Thailand has something for everyone making it a hot honeymoon spot.

Anantara Chiang Mai is a great spot in this market town and the Scent Hotel in Koh Samui is to die for. Thailand is also known for his many cheap but high quality beauty therapys and attracts millions of tourists for this reason every year. If your a bride and you want a country with a perfect holiday mix of exotic beaches, beautiful spas and wonderful beauty therapy then look no further than Medivisage to help you arrange this.

Vietnam

Phu Quoc Island

Similarly to Cambodia, Vietnam's history is tragic and recent but the country itself is beautiful; there's so much to see and explore here. Islands like Phu Quoc and Nha Trang are ideal for newlyweds who want to relax, pamper themselves and do some easy site seeing. We stayed at the Mia Resort in Nha Trang for 5 days in 2014; it was heavenly!
