Romantic Honeymoon Destination - Cherry Blossom in Seoul

I always dreaming about Seoul, I really love to go to Seoul someday. Maybe because their fantastic city or their beautiful scenery or their cuisine, like bulgogi and kimchi. I think Seoul has the perfect combination between old and modern city. Their palaces are absolutely stunning, it maintained very well. My favorite spot is the Hangang river that devide the city into two parts, the northern part (Gangbuk) and the southern part (Gangnam), this river is very clean and most beautiful in the evening when all the lights are on. Seoul is modern city with rapid growing industries but they still keep their river clean that's very special I think. For honeymooners, if you decide to have a visit in Seoul this April, you will experience the romantic scent of the cherry blossoms that so stunning.

Just mention, where do you like to spend your day during the cherry blossoms season. I call it cherry blossom season because you can always see the cherry blossom everywhere. Like the parks, palaces, mountains , and lakes. So romantic, peaceful, and gorgeous. The beautiful pink petals are everywhere like Sakura flower in Japan and maybe in Washington DC :)
I suggest, take your bride to have a little walk in a three-lined roads on Mount Namsan, it is really romantic when all the clusters of cherry blossom bloom. For family, to have a nice picnic in Yeouido riverside is a must. You have to go early, because so many people have the same idea, you won't miss the best spot, right?! Don't forget the Children's Grandpark too.


If you love the ancient Korea, you won't miss the opportunity to go to Changgyeonggung Palace and Gyeongbokgung Palace.


seoulforestChanggyeonggung palace is especially visit-worthy during spring when flanked by
cherry blossoms. Sadly, this could be the last year to behold suc
h breathtaking beauty as there are plans to replace the trees. Don’t miss the chance to take pictures of one of Korea’s most scenic palaces when it is decorated with dazzling pink cherry blossoms. To get there you may take line 4 to Haehwa station. From Exit 4, walk through the grounds of Seoul National University Hospital. The palace is open from 9 am to 6 pm weekdays (closed Tuesdays), 9 am to 5 pm weekends and holidays.




Gyeongbokgung Palace, Once the main palace during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), its cultural significance is ever present and during cherry blossom season, the ornate and spacious grounds are abuzz with visitors. Stunning shots can be taken in front of the main throne hall, the pond-bordered banquet pavilion, and the small hills and valleys surrounding the National Folk Museum. Don’t miss this opportunity to get a double dose of culture and exquisite beauty. Getting there: Gyeongbokgung Station (Line 3, Exit 5), or from Gwanghwamun Station (Line 5, Exit 2), walk 7 minutes. To reach the palace entrance from Gwanghamun Station, turn right at the big T-intersection in front of the main gate (currently under reconstruction), and take the pedestrian underpass on the next corner (about 70 meters). Getting into those palaces will remind you about the classic Korean Drama - Jewel In The Palace- Romantic and fabulous.

Still, if you have enough time, you have to visit the lakes and the Korean forest. What are you waiting for ? Spring is coming..Happy honeymoon.

Luxury Honeymoon in Australia

What is luxury means ? According to the wiktionary, luxury means very wealthy and comfortable surroundings, something desirable but expensive, something very pleasant but not very needed in life. Well, for honeymoon, luxury means exclusive resorts, fantastic and exclusive cruises, rent your own jetplane to some exotic destinations, and many more. You know, I just found a great idea about a luxury honeymoon I mean really..really luxury, if you decide to have one. How about rent an island for your honeymoon ? Rent an island ? Are you kidding me ? Nope, I'm not kidding guys, you can rent an island, just for yourself and your spouse, of course.


Some of you maybe have heard about this, there are islands for raustraliaent and maybe you have experienced renting one. One of the best place to rent an island is Australia. Australia is a vast continent of natural beauty, from its endless horizons to tropical rain forests. Many of Australia's private islands also reflect the country's vastness. Your island abode may be modest, but it's likely your island will include acres and acres of land to explore. The majority of islands available for rent in Australia sit off the Queensland Coast – the home of the Great Barrier Reef. You may try the Haggerstone island for rent. It's a remote island, right-up on the northern tip of the Great Barrier Reef that takes only two hour charter flight from Caims. About $ 3,000 a night for you and up to 5 mates. But if this is your honeymoon, it's just both of you. It's expensive of course, but it's worth it.


You will never get interrupted by the phone calls, because there are no mobile phones, no internet access, no crowd, no schedules or itineraries, no pollution, just both of you and acres..acres..of land to explore. But don't worry you're not totally alone, there are the Turner family who own the island and the staff that will catered all your need. You will enjoy the most fresh seafood and the veggie that grown only few metres out the back. If that still not enough, Mr. Turner has another exciting activity, he will take both of you on his purpose-built motor yacht for some Great Barrier Reef fishing action. You can fish your own lunch..it's fantastic. And don't forget the chance to snorkeling or scuba diving.


Maybe you think it's wasting your money, you maybe right, but if you just lucky enough to have a chance to do it, renting an island is a great adventure and one of the best thing you may do in your life. Have a great honeymoon, buddy.

Experience Exotic Cruise for Your Honeymoon


Usually, after the big wedding ceremony some couples were feeling so tired and really.. really need a relief and relaxing moment together. That's why they really need a special honeymoon. Well, honeymoon is not always perfect, but if you want to take some time to search for information and make a plan about the destination, how, and how much it will spend, your honeymoon is going to be fantastic. The most important thing is that you'll do it with all your sincerity and love for your bride. Why bride? Usually the man or groom make the plan for their honeymoon and for a surprise too. But nowadays, many couples make the plan together. So, how about choosin
g a cruise for your honeymoon ? Never been cruising before? it's okay, you will experience one. I think it will be interesting and exciting if you experience your first cruise with your spouse.

So if you'd like to have a different experience on your honeymoon, try the exotic cruise destination. Whether you choose a cruise around Caribbean, Hawaii, or if you have guts try the South Asian Destination like in Raja Ampat, Papua - Indonesia. Raja Ampat in Indonesia has currently become one of the hottest diving and cruising destination on earth. Amazing marine biodiversity and untouched landscapes combined with world class scuba diving make these largely uninhabited islands the world’s last diving frontier. Raja Ampat is one of my country's heritage. If you love diving, you may experience the different atmosphere of under water life in Raja Ampat, with an enormous variety of creatures on the reefs and marine biodiversity.

The cruise is take about 11 to 12 days on board. Starting from Sorong to Kri Island, Waigeo Island group, Kawe Island, Waiag and Southern Islands, Manosuar Island, Batanta Island, Wai Island and arrive back in Sorong. You may check the itenerary from Kararu Dive Voyage's website. You will be escorted from the Sorong airport once your aircraft is arrived straight to the ship. You will experience the local friendliness and exotic cuisine during the voyage. Take a chance to scuba-diving and enjoy the sunset at the exotic site.

If you'd like to have a cruise for your honeymoon, you have to make sure about the itenerary. Some ships offer activities during the voyage, some have a formal shows or concerts. You have to spend more time to search the information. A few tips for honeymoon cruise :
  • If you choose to take a cruise in South East Asia, the best time for cruising is from November to March because the climate of most South East Asian's country are humid tropical and hot, you have to overcome the rainy season and subject to monsoon rains in July to October.
  • Choose the highest affordable cabin category and request an upgrade if available. The inside cabins are least expensive but if you are a claustrophobic please do not take this cabin. They have no windows. The higher the deck, the higher the cruise cabin price.
  • Charge all cruise travel on a credit card, if they don't take the credit card leave it, find another one. Always make a copy of your ATM or Credit Card both sided, just incase if you've lost one.
  • Bring the small umbrella, you never know when the rain will pour. Especially in tropical country.
  • And don't forget to bring your camera or camcorder. You won't miss the memory of your special trip, right ?
When considering a cruise honeymoon, look for a cruise line that meets your demographics as a couple. Most honeymooners don’t want to cruise on a ship filled with kiddies or seniors (unless they are seniors). Ask about special discounts or cruise amenities for honeymooners. Request dinner seating with other honeymoon couples. Take advantage of luxury and pampering with leisurely champagne breakfasts (lunch or dinner) in bed. Book a couple’s massage. This is your special time; make the most of your honeymoon cruise. Have a great honeymoon, guys.
