Don’t you think that Hollywood is sometimes overrated?
We all know that we can’t withstand the charm of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in La La Land, or Hugh Grant’s dazzling act in Love Actually. These western modern romantic movies are written and produced so well and they got us thinking that the best romantic places lies under the city lights of tall New York buildings. Add Justin Bieber’s Mistletoe and we might even fixate ourselves into the idea of a romance under the snowfall of a Christmas Eve.
With all that in the scene, what about a little romance in the Eastern side of the world? We believe that romance doesn’t depend on the place, but the condition of the heart. When two are deeply in love with one another, any place could turn into a mystical romantic scene just for the two of them. You don’t have to go far to find romance with a loved one.
Take some of our photo-shoot in Ratu Boko Temple for examples. This archeological site located near Yogyakarta could be transformed into one of the most romantic photo-shoot site that you’ve ever had. With 16 hectares of relics located in the village of Bokoharjo and Prambanan, Ratu Boko Temple is definitely an exploration that will take a day to accomplish!
The first three terraces are reached through a massive gateway built on two levels. The deformation of the stones used for this gate has proven that it surpasses the test of time. Perhaps, bringing your loved one here could also be a lesson on a love that stands through the ages?
Walk pass the gate and you will find Candi Pembakaran and Candi Batu Putih. Both Candi serves a great view of its surroundings that will definitely be an aesthetic plus point to your couple photos. With nothing but green grasses and old relics, you will find yourself in a mystical yet enchanting mantra of Ratu Boko Temple.
At the northern part, lies two caves that were formed of sediment stones. These caves are called Gua Lanang and Gua Wadon that served as a meditation place. Today, it no longer serves its ascetic purpose, but it is still definitely aesthetic enough to be in your Instagram feed.
This holiday season, don’t go too far. There are too many sites in Indonesia yet unvisited by you and your loved one, just like this temple. Create your special time anywhere at any place and share it to your friends through high quality photos taken by one of our photographers. We have so much faith in them that we believe you could take them anywhere and the result would still be gorgeous!
After months (or even years!) of meticulous preparation for your big day, wouldn't be a nice reward to spend a week in a deluxe villa with a view of the turquoise sea, all to yourselves? It's probably one of the things that a couple really looks forward to, not just to take a rest from all of the happenings, but to get to spend some time with his/her lifetime partner.
Here's a list of the best honeymoon destinations in the Philippines to help you decide:
Tucked in the heart of the Visayas region is Bohol, a tropical getaway where the Chocolate Hills could be found and where the tarsiers hail from. Bohol has that laid back feel, perfect for couples seeking both nature and privacy. Many accommodations in Panglao Island offer luxurious amenities with stunning views of the sea, or even infinity pools right outside the rooms. In Bohol is also Alona Beach, an unspoiled stretch of white sand in Panglao Island which is comparable to that of Boracay.
When in Siargao, you'll literally and figuratively feel like on Cloud 9 as aside from experiencing its well-known surfing spot, it also boasts a really serene atmosphere because it isn't that too crowded yet, unlike the other tourist spots in the country. Get to experience riding with the waves as your first water activity together, or maybe have your "You jump, I jump" moment at the Sugba Lagoon, a site in between mangroves and rock formations in Del Carmen.
In a place where every corner is breathtakingly beautiful, you sure wouldn't run out of love in Batanes. Have that escape before you face your married life duties as you walk through its quiet spots and serene landscapes such as that of the Vayang Rolling Hills, Sabtang Island, and the Nakabuang Arch.
From underground rivers, hidden lagoons, and scuba diving sites to sophisticated villas and beachfront bars, Palawan is the paradise that you deserve to experience before you face the real world as a married couple. Whether you choose to stay in Coron, Puerto Princesa, or El Nido, all three makes Palawan one of the best destinations for honeymooners in the Philippines because of the endless adventures you could experience here.
If you are that chill couple who's into staycations and R&Rs, Tagaytay's the place for you. With the vibes same as Baguio CIty, experience foggy mornings that'll make you feel like teenagers in love as you cuddle and do small talk over hot chocolate. Accommodations here are affordable which may come convenient if you think you've spent so much on your wedding, but still deserve a memorable honeymoon.
Now it's up to you to decide on where that most-awaited honeymoon should take place. No matter where you go, be sure to have fun and enjoy your moments together!
