Travel experts Mr & Mrs Smith certainly have their finger on the pulse when it comes to the hottest holiday destinations around the globe. Stunning five-star boutique hotels; luxury villas; secluded mountain retreats: you name it, they've got it sussed out.
This season, romance is in the air as Mr & Mrs Smith quizzed 500 lovebirds from Singapore on their ultimate honeymoon wishlist. So where do loved-up couples really want to go for the ultimate honeymoon experience?
The results are in. Drum roll, please: here are the five most trending honeymoon destinations of the year.
An overwhelming 73 percent of those surveyed chose the Land of the Rising Sun as their top pick for honeymoons. A city escape to Tokyo; hitting the powdery slopes of Niseko; visiting historic geisha houses in Kanazawa: yes, it definitely sounds like the ultimate holiday experience for two.
The Latin Americans are known for their sizzling passion – so it's no surprise that 22 percent picked Argentina, the land of the sultry tango, as another must-visit for honeymooners. Hone your dance moves on the cobbled city streets of Buenos Aires; indulge in Malbec-fuelled fiestas in Mendoza (aka wine country) or simply let romance take flight amidst the rugged wilderness of San Martin de los Andes.
Many dream of romance in an exotic, faraway land, which is why 4 percent chose India as the ideal holiday destination for honeymooners and adventure-seekers alike. The country has no shortage of places to go and once-in-a-lifetime experiences to be had: whether it's in the bustling capital of Delhi, Kerala's coconut-studded coastlines or amidst the sprawling maharaja palaces in Rajasthan.
4. Sri Lanka
Further down South lies Sri Lanka, where 3 percent opted as their preferred spot for a romantic soujourn à deux. The enchanting isle offers lovebirds (or anyone, really) the perfect setting for an adventure like no other. Start off with a bang in Colombo (a whirlwind of colour and colonial charm), head over to Galle to revel in its laid back fishing town vibes, before finally capping off your time in Sri Lanka among the lush emerald peaks of Hill Country.
Central America makes its debut on this list with 0.8 percent of those surveyed picking Nicaragua on their honeymoon wishlist. Granted, this exotic nation may not be as popular as its Latin counterparts (we're looking at you, Brazil) but Nicaragua certainly has all the makings of an ace destination. Pristine beaches, awe-inspiring volcanic landscapes, and a fascinating colonial past: what more could you ask more?
