Top 5 “Have Yet To Be” Honeymooned Places

5) Darfur, Sudan

Darfur, Sudan

While this is a popular destination for UN relief workers and missionary trips, most honeymoon locations tend to shy away from warlord, HIV, and genocide stricken locations. Rumor has it that the coastline near the Mediterranean is picturesque though, and don’t forget your immunization shots (and personal bodyguards).

4) Scott Research Base, Antarctica

While you can’t exactly go skiing at the South end of the Earth, or spit outside without your lips chaffing off, Antarctica is not as barren as you think. The world’s top researchers devote a good amount of time to love, as 16,500 condoms were recently shipped to a research base where the sun doesn’t shine for half the year. Guess it’s hard to raise kids down there.

3) Pyongyang, North Korea

Unless you are some distant cousin of Kim Jong-Il or a high status diplomat, you’re probably going to run into some trouble obtaining a visa. Besides the omnipresent communist propaganda and the fact that the government shuts down electricity at 10pm to conserve energy (yay for green?), you and your newlywed can stay at the Ryugyong Hotel. While its been in construction since 1987, it was supposed to be the largest hotel in the world all the while fending off the title as “The Worst Building in the History of Mankind”.

2) Atlantis

Poseidon Resort, underwater resort

Assuming you possess some secret map passed down from Plato himself and a crew of adventurous souls, Atlantis tops Pyongyang in terms of The-honeymoon-to-share-with-your-friends-and-family. While it’s existence has been heavily debated for well over two millenniums, you can meanwhile checkout the Poseidon Undersea Resort in Fiji, where it will be set to open in 2009. At 40 feet underwater with open-windowed suites to the ocean blue and an underwater elevator, it just almost resembles the lost-city.

1) Space

Spending quality time with your new spouse in zero gravity definitely tops the list off. While normally reserved for trained astronauts or famous cremated individuals, the adventurous can now book a trip to the International Space Station and beyond. While there’s a $5 million deposit towards a $35 million or more projected price, the space tourism company Space Adventures offers you a once in a lifetime chance to get the right start to the perfect marriage. You can join the ranks of Google co-founder Sergey Brin in this out of world, and out of pocket, endeavor.
