Getting married in 2017, well now you can pick up the ultimate honeymooners guide from Lonely Planet, The Honeymoon Handbook.
Lonely Planet knows how important honeymoons are – in fact, newlyweds Tony and Maureen Wheeler started the company after embarking on their own honeymoon in 1972, in what turned into the trip of a lifetime across Europe, Asia and Australia.
Lonely Planet’s first guide exclusively for honeymoons, The Honeymoon Handbook features over 25 of the most exciting locations for couples – from Andalusia to Zambia. It starts with a quiz to determine what kind of trip to take based on what you two love the most, whether it’s backpacking in Borneo, touring Tuscany or cruising around Cuba.
Beyond the destination sections, The Honeymoon Handbook also offers safari-, luxury-, island- and family-themed getaway ideas – even how-to’s on so-called ‘minimoons’ and getting married abroad. Other features include budget breakdowns and alternative destinations, and an LGBT-friendly indicator for same-sex couples, rating each location from 1 to 5. Other destination lists include:
