Weddings 2019

India

Honeymoon high: The Taj Mahal’s cool marble lines and clear symmetry are awe-inspiring – it has to be seen to be believed.
What the experts say: We recommend that you extend your honeymoon to include Ranthambore, Shimla, Udaipur and Mumbai. Or, if that’s too much, you could easily tag on some beach-lounging in Sri Lanka or the Maldives.

Beautiful Bali

India

Itinerary:

  • Day 8-11: And relax… Four nights back on the beach before heading home.

Honeymoon high: Taking a soak in the natural volcanic hot springs of Lovina.
What the experts say: The roads in Ubud are lined with colourful shops and traditonal workshops, but the real reason to visit is to see the rice terraces – giant steps of green cascading down to the valley floor.

Africa for first-timers

Africa
