December doesn’t only bring winters but also brings the most suitable season for planning weddings in most of the Muslim countries; this brings along the obvious need of planning honeymoon trips. Honeymoon is something that is planned exotically in both non-Muslim as well as Muslim cultures. Muslim couples demand more privacy and select their honeymoon destination by looking at different factors according to their preferences.
