It’s not your typical spot for a honeymoon, but Turkey has become a popular travel destination this year. Pack your bags and head to Bodrum, a port city in the southwestern Aegean region. A much quieter alternative to Istanbul (which is also a great honeymoon spot), Bodrum has a population of less than 40,000 people, but it still offers options to maintain the romantic spark at luxe accommodations such as Ersan Resort & Spa. And for couples who are history buffs, we suggest a tour of some of the nearby ruins, including the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. It’s a wonderful spot for newlyweds. 960 1280
