Honeymoon is a much sought-after experience after one’s marriage. Of course, there is the excitement of visiting new places, but there is also the joy of getting to live with your partner for perhaps the first time in life, and getting to know your significant other better. And after all the hectic schedules and running around during the wedding ceremonies, a honeymoon is well-deserved. 

Moreover, a honeymoon is a perfect time to help the newlywed couple to take things a bit slow before they finally dive once again into their normal routine, but now with added responsibilities. For those who have had an arranged marriage, a honeymoon will allow them to know their partner much better and spend some quality time. On the other side, even if you have been dating for quite some time now, traveling together will definitely rekindle the passion, and teach you a thing or two which you never knew about your partner.
