The article offers information on several honeymoon destinations that are different from the traditional ones. As cited, Valencia in Spain is a honeymoon spot which, unlike Paris, France and Rome is neither too crowded nor very expensive. A seven nights trip offered by Virgin Holidays Ltd. to South Africa is also seen as a good option for its strong product range. A trip to Bali is also stated to be an unconventional honeymoon destination which has clean beaches, good hotels and culture.
