After celebrating their marriage in Hong Kong and Boracay, Nancy Tsui and Eric Watts didn't want to sit by a resort pool to unwind. Instead they chose an adventurous 21-day honeymoon in India, where they stretched out in a luxury tent, slept under the stars and sailed in a private houseboat. 'I'm actually a quarter Indian, so that's how we thought about going there,' says Tsui. 'I always do a lot research for a trip, and there are a lot of forts and palaces, which can become repetitive, so we chose some different places.' Starting in northern India's Ranthambore, the couple stayed in a pop-up tent. Tsui says the canvas-walled room was decked out with air conditioning, carpet, intricately carved beds and a bathroom with a shower. 'It wasn't exactly the Ritz Carlton, but it was luxury for India,' she says. During the day, the couple would venture out to see Bengal tigers at the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. The couple then rode camels to Jaisalmer in the Thar Desert in the northwest. For lunch they stopped under a huge tree and their guides cooked lunch. 'In the afternoon, we would find high sand dunes and sleep on the sand. We could have had a folding bed, but we wanted to try the more rugged way,' says Tsui. Heading to the south, the newlyweds finished their honeymoon in Kerala on a 1,000 sq ft houseboat, with onboard butler and master. Tsui says: 'It had everything you need to explore the waters around Kerala. We had the whole boat to ourselves and it was very spacious.' Director of Plus One Weddings ( www.plusoneweddings.com ), Effie Mak says newlyweds are booking honeymoons further away from Hong Kong. 'In the last five years, couples have been looking for more exciting locations that are a long distance away. People can always travel to Japan or within Asia easily,' says Mak. For couples who can't get enough of Mickey Mouse and the gang, Mak says some couples have booked their getaway on the Disney Cruise, which sets sail from New York City. Next year, three itineraries are offered: around the Bahamas; up the New England coast; or quick two-night cruises. Other popular destinations in the United States are Las Vegas and Los Angeles, says Mak.
