November is one of the least common months of the year for a wedding, but that doesn’t mean that couples have to sacrifice an incredible holiday. Despite cold weather in some locations around the world, there are any number of hot and tropical honeymoon destinations available for couples. Of course, those honeymooners who would prefer to snuggle together in front of a roaring fireplace can also do that, and the weather in November lends itself perfectly to this kind of activity. Whether couples are searching for beach resorts or snowy landscapes, they can find it all during the start of winter. Here are just some of the top honeymoon destinations for couples getting married in November.
Tour the World’s Most Famous Archeological Sites: Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Despite the sometimes unfavorable weather conditions, the temples in the Angkor Archeological Park are almost always busy. In the spring, temperatures are incredibly hot and humid, and in the summer the rain is heavy and frequent. The best time of year to enjoy slightly cooler weather and clear skies is during the winter, and November is also the ideal time to avoid the holiday crowds.
Couples who choose to visit Angkor Wat and the surrounding structures during their honeymoon will be able to spend several days touring the park, exploring temples and trekking through the jungle. For convenience and comfort, there are guided tours that take place in air-conditioned vehicles, but more adventurous newlyweds might want to ride a bike or even an elephant when getting around the ruins.
Enjoy Beautiful Beaches in the Caribbean Sea: British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands are, as the name implies, a British territory that is located in the heart of the Caribbean. Among travelers who have been to many of the surrounding destinations, the British Virgin Islands stand out as a location that is pristine, secluded and free from too many of the big cruise ship ports and crowds. In November, the weather in the British Virgin Islands is warm and tropical, which makes it an ideal getaway for newlyweds who live in colder climates.
The appeal of a honeymoon in the British Virgin Islands is the chance to escape from reality and soak up sun in a beautiful destination. Although couples can easily be happy doing nothing but eating, drinking and tanning, they also have the option of windsurfing, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, sailing and touring the British colonial towns on the islands.
Discover French History and Cuisine in Canada: Montreal, Quebec
For many couples, Europe is a dream destination for a honeymoon, but the international airfare can sometimes make it too expensive for the average budget. Thankfully, places like Montreal make it possible to explore new cultures, cuisines and history without ever leaving North America. Montreal is the capital city of Quebec, and it boasts breathtaking architecture as well as a population with French as their first language.
There is no shortage of things for newlywed couples to do in Montreal. Couples will want to spend at least some of their time exploring the 17th century architecture in Old Montreal on foot, but they should also leave time for activities like ice skating, watching the local sports teams and dining on some of the most authentic French food that can be found outside of Europe.
Enjoy Amazing Theme Parks Without the Long Line: Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
When most people think of a vacation at the Walt Disney World theme park in Orlando Florida, they think of big families on vacation and long lines in the hot sun. While that may be true during some summer dates, in November it makes the perfect fun retreat for newlywed couples. The park is home to a number of amazing hotels and resorts, which means that couples can indulge in fine cuisine and feel pampered in one of the many spas.
Of course, a honeymoon can be a great time to feel like a kid again and reconnect with your new spouse. The temperature is still warm in November, but the long lines are a thing of the past. Tour the park, take in the Broadway-quality shows and performances and enjoy some of the best food in Florida while in and around the theme park on a honeymoon.
