Report reveals that 81% of travellers would say no to a beach break honeymoon and would take the chance to indulge on the trip of a lifetime
The survey also revealed only 12% of people would opt for a fly-and-flop beach break. It seems newly-weds are doing little to tighten their belts in the current economic doom and gloom – only 3% of people asked said they would take a budget break, to save for the big day itself.
Editor of Unique Honeymoons and associate editor of Wanderlust Sarah Baxter said, "Most people assume couples just want to collapse on a pretty beach for two weeks. However, our poll showed this is far from the truth with most Brits looking for unique and adventurous ways to start married life."
"We have had to wade through the oil slick of spa hotels and petal baths to uncover experiences that will really deliver on this new trend. So that's a no to Caribbean all-inclusives and yes please to floating tents in Cambodia or Swedish treehotels."

An article and video of a similar vein here: http://www.iexplore.co.uk/blog-post/honeymoons-differenceIt seems to be the new trend.
We took 4 months and got back in November. Worth every penny, time spent and the general change in life. My wife hadn't really done an extended trip before and it was a fantastic experience to revisit some of my old haunts and explore new places together.....If your only going to do it once, you may as well make the most of it!!
