Ha Long Bay among best places to go for budget honeymoon
Prestigious global travel website Lonely Planet suggested newlyweds spend their unforgettable honeymoon in Vietnam in 2023. One of three ideal destinations are the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ha Long Bay, Phu Quoc island, or the ancient town of Hoi An.
Lonely Planet stressed that Vietnam is something of a street-food heaven, adding that that visitors must sample the country's signature dishes, such as Phở bò (beef noodle soup), Bún chả (a type of barbecued pork with rice noodles), and Bánh mì, a local type of baguette.
“A mid-range trip won’t break the bank either, but will buy more characterful guesthouses, a better Ha Long Bay cruise and memorable experiences (a cookery class, a cycle around Hoi An) with change left for a beach stay on beautiful Phu Quoc Island,” it noted.
The magazine also recommended that foreign couples pay a visit to the country outside of the high season of July and August as they will have the best chance possible to find budget accommodation.
The list also includes Morocco, India, Portugal, Indonesia, Honduras, Cambodia, Bulgaria, South Africa, and Puerto Rico.
