The weather of the exotic city of Rio de Janeiro is just beautiful to be experienced during the month of July.

Snuggled by picturesque Karakorma and Himalayan ranges, Leh and Ladhak hold a magic for all adventurous romantics, who love natural beauty. Snow-capped peaks and vast farmlands are always ready to welcome lovers.

The capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is said to be the epitome of tropical luxury by many world travelers.

With cloudy sky and occasional rain, the scenery here is refreshingly welcoming. Apart from these, you can even head to lesser known areas like Tioman Island or Sabah or the island of Borneo. August is the best time to avail some great discounts for your honeymoon to this destination.
#2. Kerala, India
If you are looking for a relaxing honeymoon then the idyllic state of Kerala is a perfect honeymoon destination in the month of September. The best place in Kerala to visit at this time is Kovalam, which is the best hidden gem of the state.
Kovalam is an amazing backwater retreat, divided into three areas- the Hawah beach, the Lighthouse beach and the Samudra beach, which together form the Kovalam beach’s famous crescent shape. This place is especially a seafood lover’s delight. Shop at local markets, unwind by the beaches, take relaxing Ayurvedic massages, and steal away some intimate moments. The nature loving couples can take exciting jungle treks and night safaris. Once there, do visit the Hawa Beach and mountainous region of Ponmudi.
September brings in a slight drop in the temperature in Egypt, which makes it a perfect month to visit. It is the perfect time to explore the romantic cruise on the Nile River or indulge in an idyllic sun-bath with your spouse. Enjoy the thrill of a camel or jeep safari on the sand or mesmerise your partner by taking her on a hot balloon ride under the stars at night.
Since it is still off-the-peak season for the country, this is another reason to plan your trip as you can steal some amazing discounts, and can enjoy an uncrowded honeymoon experience. Northern beaches around Alexandria are the coolest at this time, and this is also the time to enjoy a beach holiday along Egypt’s Red Sea coast.
#2. Lakshadweep, India
The islands of Lakshadweep are a perfect place to visit in the country during this month. Though you will encounter little showers as monsoon bid goodbye to the islands, this is something that will add to your romantic getaway.
This is the time to enjoy water sport activities as well. The charm of this destination is in its remoteness. The secluded islands are a perfect isolated getaway to start your married life. The golden sandy beaches, crystal clear water and scrumptious seafood are just a few delights. Also, do go kayaking and canoeing with your sweetheart, apart from Scuba diving.
