Personally, I am all about the island setting...but if I had my choice (and the money), I would choose the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Well, the word "romantic" ultimately derives from "Rome"...

Go to Japan. My cousin went there for his honeymoon, and he said he couldn't imagine going anywhere else and have as much fun. I'm definitely going there someday.

i would love to go there but the 20 some hour flight is a killer. would have to be there for 3-4 weeks to make it worth it since you'll love like 3-4 days between flights and sleeping.

Lots of sand, yes. Problem is, it is landlocked, so it is the boring variety of sand. Afghanistan is kind of a "poor-man's Turkmenistan" if you will.

Road trip seems like an awful idea...But maybe that's just me. We got married (and honeymooned) on an island in the state of Georgia...It was lovely being able to sit on our balcony and watch the beach. I would definitely recommend beach setting of some sort.

There is a beautiful little island off the coast of Japan called Miyajima I went to when I was 16. I swore that if I got married we would honeymoon there. its very quiet, very beautiful.

Also, its right outside Hiroshima...so you can spend some nice, romantic time there then head to mainland Japan to have some fun. I recommend Kyoto over Tokyo, though

Road trip = no. Puerto Vallarta isn't good either. I'd go to some place on the Caribbean, some island in the Pacific, or some place in France or Italy on the Mediterranean.

There are several nations in Europe that are good honeymoon destinations, especially in the Summer. You have Italy, Turkey, France as some of the few nations one can mention.

I would avoid Mexico...

I'm not one to get hyped up on the paranoia the news spews out, but my dad's co-worker went there for a trip...his tour-guide was pulled out of the tour van he was driving and hung up on a tree by some kind of gang while the tour group watched.

For a cheap honeymoon, I absolutely loved Michigan during the summer. Hawaii might be nice. I didn't like Florida. I lived in California for awhile, and the weather is amazing there, but if it's going to be dirty and crowded if you want to stay in one of the bigger cities.

If I was able to go overseas, I'd do Ireland, then Japan or London.

Were they charged extra?

Also, kiddies are generally only included if the wedding was of the shotgun variety

Well, me and my girl were talking about where we wanted to go on our honeymoon. We have been discussing for days and havent come to any real conclusions, so I thought "I know! I will poll the people of Gamespot's off-topic forum", because we all know this is the best place to go for advice onimportant decisions.

So, we have narrowed it down tothe options above. Any opinions?

Heres a breakdown (went on mine in October 2009).... Caribbean - good if you go NOT during hurricane season unless you are going far enough south (we went to St. Lucia during an El Nino year which pretty much guarantees no hurricanes) South Pacific - Pay out the butthole and takes a long time to travel down there Europe - Meh Mexico - NO - seriously, don't go to a party location (all of Mexico) or a place you can get sick by drinking the water. Mexico is for spring break only.
