Planning a wedding can be as much a fun and creative experience as it is a stressful one – there are about a million decisions to be made in terms of food, flowers, invitations, themes and, most importantly, location.
While stores can help with dress choices, picking a place for your wedding / honeymoon is a little more difficult. The options are open ended, and they don’t exactly come in a catalog; you have to do the research and creative leg work from scratch.
But don’t let the volume of planning overwhelm you, and choose an ordinary location just because it’s simple and easy; if you want to be more unique with your wedding location, use this list of places to consider.
While this is by no means an exhaustive list of original places, with any luck it will get your creative juices flowing, and inspire you to think outside the box so you can find a truly special wedding location. With your wedding being the single most unique day of your life, it’s fitting that the setting should also be unique.read more

In Mongolia, that means staying in yurts (portable, round tents covered in skins and felt, still used by Mongolian nomads); in Tunisia, an ancient cave house. From reed houses in South America, to igloos in Scandinavia, and turf houses in Iceland, traditional living has never been cookie cutter.
So why should our hotels?
Hotels in Siem Reap are ridiculously cheap. But I wasn’t looking for something forgettable this time around. I had traveled more than 5,000 miles to immerse myself in ancient temples of the Khmer Empire, and I didn’t want to shatter the experience by returning each night to a bland, generic hotel.

We would stay in a traditional Khmer stilt house.read more
