My wife and I went to Turkey on our honeymoon and we loved it!
My wife loved it even though she flew home alone because I had to stay on and write yet another travel guidebook. (The whole story is in my humorous travel memoir, Turkey: Bright Sun, Strong Tea.)
(Believe it or not, we're still happily married!)
Why Turkey for your honeymoon?
—Anthony met Cleopatra at Side on Turkey's Mediterranean coast for a romantic interlude.
—Then he gave the Egyptian queen her own private Turquoise Coast beach covered with sand shipped in from Egypt so she wouldn't feel homesick.
That was then, this is now: great beaches and resorts, private yacht cruises, excellent restaurants, lively cafe life, world-class museums (many in castles and palaces), and of course top-class hotels everywhere.
