Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Tuesday, 2 October 2007

A moonlit walk along the Seine, under the lights of the Eiffel Tower, while arm in arm with the man or woman of your dreams embodies romance itself. A clich it may be, but Paris is still frequently voted the number one city for honeymoon destinations.

A survey conducted by IIR Middle East, organizers of the Bride Show Abu Dhabi and the Bride Show Dubai, the largest bridal exhibitions in the Middle East, showed that 48% of their visitors feel that the trendiest post-nuptial locale is Europe. One out of two individuals chose either France or Italy to visit after their big day; with cities like Paris, Venice, Rome and Milan on offer it is not hard to understand.

A quarter of the respondents swapped these majestic cities for more exotic locations and choose Asia as their preferred honeymoon spot. Of those who fancy crystalline waters and amber sunsets, the Maldives was the most favored (32%) followed by Malaysia (20%).

The Middle East shared third place (along with North America) as the ideal region to start married life. Within Middle East destinations, the UAE holds its own as the number one chosen destination with a whopping 39% of respondents choosing it, beating Turkey (21%) and its Aegean coastline.

Travel agents and tour operators offering tailor-made and luxury honeymoon packages are just one service provided at the bridal exhibitions. There will be more than 400 regional and international exhibitors participating, showcasing everything a bride-to-be needs to plan and organize that very special day.

The Bride Show Abu Dhabi takes place from 5 to 8 February 2008 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center while the Bride Show Dubai takes place from 23 to 26 April 2008 at the Dubai International Exhibition Center.
