    The concept of YOLO is often carried forward to honeymoons. Couples believe that since they would be taking a honeymoon trip just once, why not go all out and make the most of it!

More and more couples are also considering covering multiple honeymoon destinations in one go.

    In today’s highly competitive corporate world, not everyone is lucky enough to get long leaves of absence from their workplace. Nor is everyone privileged enough to afford the most luxurious honeymoon destinations. This gave rise to the concept of trips of shorter durations to romantic destinations that can be reached quickly and within a comfortable budget, without compromising on privacy & romantic activities for the couples.

    4. Adventure Honeymoons
