There's no denying that vacation is the first thing that comes to your mind as a married couple. Planning and preparing for a wedding could be tough and complicated, but once the ceremony is over, you sure deserve the R&R that you've been wanting even before you head on to face the married life.
With so many wonderful destinations around the world that you could think of, let's not make this a continuation of your wedding stress—here are 4 underrated destinations in Asia where that much-awaited honeymoon is bound to happen:Udaipur, India To describe Udaipur as beautiful is an understatement. The City of Lakes gives the traditional Indian vibe, with the charming temples and palaces that makes the perfect backdrop for couple photos. Also known as the most romantic city in India, you could enjoy wandering around Lake Pichola that may even count as an experience comparable of that when you’re in Venice. What makes it even better is that you could do this in Udaipur without breaking the bank. Siargao, Philippines Some may just consider it as just another summer destination, but we assure you, Siargao could be your next haven as a couple. Aside from the fact that its beaches, specifically Cloud 9, offer a world-class experience for its beautiful waves perfect for both pro and beginners, the vibe in the island will captivate you. Lush tropical forests, native accommodations, and the friendly locals will give you the comfort that you both deserve. Basically, it’s a slice of heaven located Southeast of Manila. Phuket, Thailand While many couples aim for adventure, choosing Phuket would be best for intimate moments made in the most ideal sceneries. Phuket has a 50-km postcard-like coastline where you could watch the stunning sunset together in Ya Nui, stay up to join the nightlife scene in Patong Beach, or simply call it a night with a glass of wine in Kamala Beach where your luxury villa is, too. Nami Island, Korea Nami Island or Namiseom Island is a real charmer. With Instagram-worthy tree lanes, parks, and woodlands, take a spot and just enjoy the scenery together with your significant other here. There really is no best time to visit this island because all four seasons make the place equally fascinating. It’s practically like a date spot where both of you could do some reminiscing and more deep conversations, just like the good old days.

Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:
It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.
How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.
As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.
It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!
Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.
The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!
For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.
To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.
In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.
