Whenever a discussion pops up about honeymoon, some of the first places that come to most people’s minds are Paris, London, Dubai, Tokyo, etc. — and all for good reason. The bitter truth though is that most new couples in Nigeria can’t afford romantic trips to these exotic destinations. Nevertheless, we believe that your economic status should never deny you and your spouse the much-deserved bae-cation.
Not to worry, that is where we come in. We present to you the best honeymoon locations in Nigeria that can offer you the same memorable experience (or even better) as those exotic resorts outside Nigeria “without tearing your pockets.”
