Top Ten Honeymoon Destinations - 2008

Guest Author - Kara Williams

Modern Bride magazine unveiled "The World's 50 Best Honeymoons" in the August/September 2008 issue, with its 12th annual honeymoon survey. The magazine polled a group of 6,000 of the country's best travel agents, all part of the prestigious Virtuoso network.

Italy continues its reign as the world's best honeymoon destination (last year it knocked Hawaii from the top spot that it had held for the previous 10 years). Hawaii continues to rank second. Greece made a huge jump this year from #10 to #5; Bali and Turks & Caicos were not on the top 10 list last year, but made it in 2008. California is the highest-ranked domestic locale -- coming in at #26.

The top 10 honeymoon destinations are:
1. Italy
2. Hawaii
3. Tahiti
4. Mexico
5. Greece
6. Costa Rica
7. Bali
8. Fiji
9. France
10. Turks & Caicos

The magazine went on to list a total of 50 popular honeymoon destinations:
11. Maldives
12. St. Lucia
13. St. Barths
14. Seychelles
15. Anguilla
16. South Africa

If you're in the midst of planning your honeymoon, I highly recommend you pick up the current issue of Modern Bride. Each of the locales above are broken down into "Whom it's right for," "How to enjoy it," "Where to stay." Great, detailed information as you winnow down your dream destination!

The magazine also highlighted some other favorites:

Best locale for romance and "sexy ambiance": Tahiti.

Best destination for good food: Italy.

And here are the top trends in honeymoons:
