The word "honeymoon" conjures up images of lazy days on a white-sand beach, basking in newlywed bliss. But that picture-perfect destination is not always perfect right now. Drug wars, crime, not to mentions some seriously dangerous insects can mar even the most idyllic of places and will swiftly jolt you out of the honeymoon period-and into honeymoon hell.

Really? Avoid Australia because of poisonous spiders? I must be living on the edge because that's next on our travel list!

The most dangerous honeymoon location is the one where before you go, you changed the beneficiary on your life insurance to the new spouse and put your new spouse on the home, investments, and other assets.
The safest is when they think your poor and have nothing to gain by you falling off a cliff at the lookout, over the rail of a cruise, or eat something that exploded your insides.

just watch Locked up abroad and you'll see many places that are considered "dangerous".
Philippines is just one place.

It's just not a show where people get locked up in foreign jails, but also those that get kidnapped at resorts.

LMAO @ MAK802

OH PLEASE! Stop this nonsense...all those destinations are just terrific, these journalists have way too much time on their hands. I just returned from Mexico and am set to go there again soon, and Indonesia is top of my list of destinations...I want to go there to SCUBA dive

Before you leave, could you please leave all of us at City-Data who care about people a way to identify you should you turn up missing....or worse. Should we just listen for the laughter?
(Naw, just kidding_I couldn't resist.) You are quite the optimist. You know...there is another pole, being a pessimist and then...of course those who live in reality, please err on the side of caution and be a little more toward the middle of the real world. It is a different world than it used to be, and eventually, your luck may run out. Enjoy your trip though!

Spiders? Only Australia ! Every place else is a human issue, leave it to Australia to be dangerous without intent. I have never been, but I always hear how beautiful Australia is, and then immediately following, how dangerous due to all kinds of snakes, jelly fish, shark, spiders, you name it. I can't get past them to find myself on a plane. I know that may sound silly, but this article just put Australia back down on my list a few notches. I HATE spiders! lol

Your luck may run out when you're sitting on your couch and a truck plows through your house. Or airplane pieces fall from the sky, setting your house on fire. Those things are just as likely as becoming a "victim" during travels. It's a small world, why not see it all?

I travel too. I'm not a couch potato, usually. But I wouldn't call myself a daredevil! LOL I just don't want to tempt fate ... and you're right, a tree limb can crash down and kill you when you simply make a trip to the zoo, as a recent happening in NY, so ...yes, I would have to agree. Enjoy! Just please be careful
