For 2023, we want to propose a few twists on a classic honeymoon getaway, newer trends that won’t just give your lovebird travelers a new perspective on life, but on their own relationship.
Classic Beach Honeymoon…With A Twist
Like cruising, escaping to a seaside paradise is practically synonymous with a “honeymoon.” Recent trends are taking newlyweds to more adventurous, but much more intimate locales. Hidden beaches, less-traveled islands – these are the places to be before they’re discovered and overrun!
Our recommendation: Vietnam’s Con Dao Islands boasts beautiful blue waters and a wonderful national park for nature-loving couples. For truly unique, off-the-beaten-path island adventures, Koh Rong Island in Cambodia is a must-see!
Planning for a wedding is always stressful, so when it comes to honeymoons all that’s needed is some relaxation and the company of your significant other. A lot of couples in 2023 are opting for a wellness-focused honeymoon, with the aim to unwind. There’s nothing more relaxing and recuperating than staying at an all-inclusive resort, that comes with luxurious spas and wellness programs.
Our recommendation: This kind of honeymoon getaway is all about relaxing your body, soul, and mind with the person you’re spending it with, and Avana Retreat in Hoa Binh, Vietnam can offer you exactly that!
A honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, that being said, it’s important to be fully present and to take in those unforgettable moments to make long-lasting, memorable memories with your new spouse.
Our recommendation: Go off the grid! Unplugging yourself from social media will help you make the most out of your special time with your significant other. Southeast Asia is the perfect place for couples to go off-the-grid – especially in Thailand and Laos where you can embark on an adventure by glamping in nature.
Honeymoons with a focus on minimal environmental impact and responsible tourism are becoming all the rage. Under this massive umbrella of responsible travel, plastic-free tours are in full swing, and eco-friendly and sustainable accommodations are favored.
Our recommendation: This honeymoon journey is all about showing endless compassion – great for couples who just can’t help but give back! We offer sustainable itineraries in all our destinations, as well as initiatives like “Refill Not Landfill” to eliminate single-use plastics. Additionally, staying in eco-friendly accommodations like Avana Retreat in Hao Binh, Vietnam, or Shinta Mani Wild in Cambodia.
Familymoon / Babymoon
Perhaps your newlyweds are looking for one last “hurrah!” before starting a family, or, if they already have kids, make the honeymoon into more of a family affair. Familymoons are a great time to bond together as a new family – a multigenerational trip, often planned around a destination wedding. Babymoons, on the other hand, are the last hurrah before couples make that big decision: having a child!
Our recommendation: The more the merrier! Southeast Asia is quickly becoming more and more family-friendly, and both Cambodia and Thailand are especially set to welcome everyone with open arms, with plenty for kids and adults to do.

As enticing as new trends may be, some classics are hard to beat: the relaxing, intimate cruise. Forget the tourist mobs: this year, couples are opting for smaller, luxury vessels, with limited passenger lists, deluxe accommodations, and attentive service. Places like Vietnam’s Halong Bay are unbeatable for couples looking to escape to paradise. However, more adventurous travelers are taking cruises to less-traveled islands that are truly off the beaten path…
Our recommendation: Couples can simply be whisked away to a tranquil, marine paradise on our Mekong River cruises in Vietnam, as well as Laos and Cambodia.
For the truly adventurous, why not have a surprise destination honeymoon? Travel companies have been offering surprise getaways, and planning couples’ honeymoons down to the last detail. All newlyweds have to do is show up and enjoy the lovely, stress-free journey.
Our recommendation: Go for it! This is a fun and unique honeymoon idea for couples who don’t have a dream honeymoon destination or like the idea of being surprised.
Whether your newlyweds are looking to express their love as worldly compassion on a “giving mood” or simply want to escape into the mystical waters of the Mekong Delta, Easia Travel is here to make any and every honeymoon more than just a uniquely lovely experience – a fulfillment of the intimate dream getaway, tailored perfectly to the lovebirds’ every whim and desire. After all, we make Asia easy for you – and after something as big as a wedding, your travelers deserve the pampering and service we’ve proudly offered for almost two decades.
