1. Marrakesh, Morocco

In an extensive maze of markets that naturally looks like a movie set. Your honeymoon is set to lit when you find yourself among belly dancers, snake charmers and horse-drawn carriages. You might want to consider staying at the hotel with the Atlas mountain view. You might, however, be budgeting about $450 a night at the Selman Marrakech.

This is a destination that fashion designers and Rock stars visit for inspiration. Hence a perfect destination for love birds. Also, make sure you visit Yves Saint Laurent’s former home and gardens. And make a long stop at the Galerie “Love”. I need not say more than that. I can imagine the adventure you’re having on your honeymoon already.

5. Elmina, Ghana

Some people say they had the holiday of their lifetime in Ghana. But then, they might have had the best of their vacation experience in the Gold Coast. Albeit, with the help of Guides. In a country around the size of the western Nigeria full of fun and beautiful scenery.

However, whatever you do in Ghana, just make sure to visit Elmina. It is filled with quite number of resorts and castles. Make it a top priority to visit Cape Coast Castle and Elmina Castle. Both castles are declared as  UNESCO heritage sites. Kakum National park is where you will regret not visiting on the long run. The park with forest that house rare butterflies and birds among other wildlife.

Its undisturbed virgin rainforest have the longest and highest canopy walkway in West Africa.


In conclusion,  as stated earlier, the list is not motivated by ratings or rank whatsoever. You are free to suggest places and I might want to go visit the place too. You can also write and submit an article on your adventure and get paid for doing so. These are just where I personally know to spice up my honeymoon in the near future.[/read]
