top 10 honeymoon destinations in the world, according to facebook

Facebook has revealed the world's top honeymoon locations based on check-ins and they include idyllic destinations in America, St Lucia and Brazil.

While no romantic spots in Europe were included in the top ten list, the closest destination was Antalya in Turkey, which came in at number eight.

Las Vegas, USA was named the number one destination for honeymoon check-ins worldwide. Sin City was followed by Lahaina and Honolulu in America, while Playa del Carmen and Cancun in Mexico took the fifth and sixth spots.

In a blog post, Facebook Data Analyst Dustin Cable wrote: "19% of US honeymooners travelled internationally, but it was couples from South Korea who travelled the greatest distance to their honeymoon destinations, with a median trip of 4,000 miles away from home.

"More than 100 couples checked into a place father than 12,000 miles away from home, almost exactly on the opposite side of the planet from where they started their journey. Couples living in Spain who travelled to New Zealand and Peruvians who travelled to Thailand made up a large proportion of this group."

According to Inside Facebook, the social networking site said that the list was based on couples who posted a marriage life event in 2014 and checked into a location within two weeks of the marriage date, with check-in locations within 20 miles of their hometown excluded.
