5 Coolest Honeymoon Destinations for Newlywed Gay Couples

First of all, congratulations on tying the knot! This has been such a long and bumpy ride, but now that same-sex marriages are legal in all 50 states, it’s time to celebrate. And apart from organizing the most unforgettable wedding party, it’s also time for us to start thinking about the honeymoon. Bear in mind that this has to be a special place, as you are, after all, quite special. You know that we gays don’t go with the cliché things, so choosing a very cool destination for our honeymoon should be our imperative. How else can we brag about it to our friends when we come back? These are 5 coolest destinations for your gay honeymoon, and choosing either one of them will result in you having the most romantic and best time of your life with your boo.

1. Visit the Maple country

Canada is not only a country that many tourists wish to see thanks to its amazing cities and even more amazing nature, but it’s also a destination which is on the bucket list of many LGBT people. Canada in general is very popular with gays, especially thanks to Toronto and Vancouver, which could be great options for your honeymoon. Not only will you be enjoying everything these cities have to offer, but also enjoy some gaytastic time (of course if your partner and you are not jealous of each other and have the freedom to dance with whomever you want). Moreover, Canada has liberal laws that protect LGBT people, so safety is ensured.

2. Try something more unusual in Asia

Since probably, as already speculated, you want to do something that no one has ever done before, you can opt for a destination that’s not actually very popular, especially in the LGBT community. One such destination is Vietnam, which is after all a fantastic place to see. Not only are there great sights to be seen and explored, but this is one of the most gay-friendly countries in Asia. If you’re an adventurous couple, you will definitely want to take one of the many Vietnam motorbike tours as you won’t be able to do so anywhere else in the world – they really are spectacular. As far as nightlife is concerned, Vietnam has a number of gay-friendly bars, especially in the capital Hanoi and Saigon.

3. Make love under Aurora Borealis

On the other hand, if you’re a romantic type of a couple and want to explore new destinations rather than actually have fun and drink your honeymoon away, Iceland could be a great option. You want to book any month from September to April if you want to experience this magnificent view. Choosing to spend a week in Iceland is probably enough. You will get to spend a couple of days in Reykjavik and then go somewhere more distant and secluded to see the Aurora Borealis as you want to avoid light pollution.

4. Parlez-vous gay?

No, gentlemen, France is not cliché! Even if it was, it’s still a great choice as this country really is spectacular in many ways. If you choose France as your honeymoon destination, you can choose one of the three types of vacation. First, you can visit the coastline and enjoy yourselves in some of the most expensive hotels in Nice or other important cities. Alternatively, you can choose to stay at some of the rural parts of France and enjoy their heavenly wine and cheese. And, of course, if you’re an old romantic at heart, then Paris is great for you. Imagine kissing in front of the Moulin Rouge!

5. Sleeping with elephants in Africa

Killing a couple of birds with one stone can be achieved by choosing Africa as your honeymoon destination. First of all, you will be visiting such a spectacular continent and seeing its amazing and unique landscapes and sights that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. Going on a safari and seeing The Lion King in real life is also something that you should experience. You can choose one of the most authentic countries in Africa such as Zambia, Botswana or South Africa and while being accommodated in one of its many great resorts that are LGBT friendly, still experience the African way of life and even donate money or supplies to the ones in need. Definitely a great option!

After all, it’s important to be with your partner, wherever you are. But if you have the option to choose, try some of these five and you won’t regret it!
