Pick up your phones and contact your trusted travel agent to reserve plane tickets to your favourite destination. There’s no better way to connect with your partner than this. Try yourself! Here are a few destination picks for you.
While most of us might think of Paris as a mainstream destination, I have personally witnessed couples manifesting a trip to Paris to exchange vows. Known as the city of love, it makes one of the ideal destinations for couples to visit on a valentine’s Day. Immerse yourself in the panoramic views of the city by taking an elevator ride to the summit. Sunsets at the Eiffel Tower are breathtaking, too. Another magical experience is a cruise along the Seine River with live music and beautiful views of landmarks. You may visit the Love Lock Bridge to add your own padlock as a token of your love. Enjoy endless exquisite French cuisine at world-renowned restaurants or spend a relaxing evening at Luxembourg Garden, indulge in Paris’ delectable sweets or take a romantic stroll at Champs-Élysées; Paris has everything for a perfect Valentine’s escape.
Oh-so-stunning Santorini is an excellent choice for a Valentine’s Day escape. The picturesque landscape and breathtaking sunsets are perfect to begin your romantic holiday. It is much more than white-washed buildings and the deep blue Aegean Sea; all you need to find is a perfect spot to witness the sun setting into the sea with the most favourite person in the world. My top recommendation is to find a cosy spot at the waterfront at Oia to inhale the perfect romantic ambiance. Staying at the tranquil and luxurious accommodation is itself an experience. You can choose from a range of boutique hotels, private villas, or suites designed with traditional Cycladic architecture. Even the candlelit dinners against the shimmering lights of islands are so worth it. You can also consider going for wine-tasting together and exploring vineyards, beautiful villages and archaeological sites. Soar above the island with a hot air balloon ride for yet another exciting experience.
Venice is widely known as one of the most enthralling destinations for romantic couples. The city has the perfect dreamy vibe with its timeless charm, picturesque canals, breathtaking sunset views and remarkable historic architecture. Couples are often seen here strolling hand in hand through cobblestone streets for a magical holiday. Take an iconic gondola ride along Italy’s charming canals, particularly during the sunset, for a perfect romantic atmosphere. The cultural richness of the city captivates the travellers. Being in a city with your loved one calls for a candlelit dinner in a quaint trattoria to create long-lasting memories. The town is also historically significant, and you can visit sites like St. Mark Basilica for another immersive experience. People cherish the sights of its beautiful architecture and elaborative mosaics. Check out St. Mark Square, which has old buildings and cafés, and it offers a glimpse into the city’s rich heritage. Attend an unforgettable performance at Venice’s popular Teatro Le Fenice to experience the grandeur of Italian Opera.
If you want a change, travel beyond the popular European getaways and head to Kyoto for a romantic retreat. You can cherish the timeless charm of this city together. The historical elegance is ravishing; explore the Imperial Palace’s stunning gardens and incredible architecture. One of the most magical experiences is witnessing the cherries blossom. I recommend Maruyama Park, Higashiyama District, and the Philosopher’s Path for you to enjoy the romantic ambience. Oh, wait? Did I mention Kaamo River? The water flows through the north and east wards of the city. Couples love strolling hand in hand at the riverside cherry blossom-lined walkways. It never gets boring when your partner is as excited as you to try new things. Need recommendations? Find a perfect serene spot and enjoy your endless conversations while sipping on Matcha. Build your connection with nature in the tranquil atmosphere of Arashiyama Bamboo Groove.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia:
Another exquisite destination known for its luxurious overwater bungalows, crystal clear waters and breathtaking views of the city. Stay at a luxurious resort with glass floors and see the marine life beneath your room. Book a private lagoon tour and enjoy snorkeling, swimming on a secluded islet for an intimate holiday experience. Bora Bora offers a list of premium experiences for couples such as a helicopter tour at the top of Mount Otemanu for beautiful panoramic views of the island. Watch the mesmerizing sunrise and sunset during the hikes is another serene experience. Moreover, you can indulge in multiple water activities such as paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkeling.
In conclusion, every destination has an element of charm and allure. Whether to explore a new destination or revisit a new one, choosing a destination for your Valentine’s travel is entirely based on your preference. Couples get an opportunity to reconnect and create lasting memories when they go on trips together. It helps strengthen the bond when you figure out every aspect of living and travelling together to a new destination.
