4. Venice, Italy
Aptly termed the most romantic place on earth, Venice is perhaps the most sought after honeymoon destination. With the slow moving ‘gondolas’ that offer panoramic view of the city in all its glory, you can be lost in the beauty for hours.

This European country might be bankrupt, but that has got nothing to with its beautiful architecture and enchanting mythology. Tip for newly weds: don’t try to see everything in one trip. Just relax and enjoy, you can always return.

7. Sydney, Australia
The hub of major activity, Sydney is another hot pick for your honeymoon. Boasting of the whitest sands, its sun kissed beaches are in a league of their own. The most famous beach, Bondi, is a few minutes from Sydney and needless to say, the heart of all activity.

A haven for romance, Switzerland with its lush green landscapes and of course the enticing array of chocolates, is a favorite among many couples. The best way is to go on train tours and hike through the cities of Geneva, Montreux, Zermatt and Zurich.

9. Kashmir, India
Once dubbed as a heaven on earth, Kashmir still maintains that tranquil beauty and never fails to mesmerize. In spite of tensions with the neighboring country, it is still a choice many couples opt for. And why not, the proximity felt in a ‘shikara’ or house-boat or the beauty of Himalayas, is unparalleled.
