According to a poll by Unique Honeymooners magazine, newlyweds are increasingly opting for an 'adventurous trip of a lifetime' instead of a relaxing, exotic beach honeymoon as has been popular in the past.

In total, 81% of Britons are now choosing a more adventurous way to start married life, while only 12% are interested in the traditional ‘fly and flop’ break.

Furthermore, despite the weak current economy, only 3% of people said they would go for a budget break, and a mere 4% will choose a short break to cut costs on their honeymoon.  

Sarah Baxter, Unique Honeymooner’s editor, commented: “So that’s a no to Caribbean all-inclusives and yes please to floating tents in Cambodia or Swedish treehotels.”

The latest 2012 honeymoon hotspots revealed by the survey are Tanzania in first position, thanks to its combination of beautiful beaches, wildlife safaris and opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

This is followed consecutively to make up the top five by Burma and Borneo for their “exotic jungle, spicy food and orang-utans”, Namibia for being “the best place to board a hot-air balloon, dawn desert views and a champagne breakfast” and Japan to “embrace the tradition of 'hadaka no tsukiai' (naked companionship) in a steamy hot spring”.
