Exotic Bali, Indonesia
This exotic place is packed with unique culture and rich traditions. The local cuisine offers delightful recipes which are sure to delight your taste buds. Tanah Lot is the iconic not-to-be-missed temple, standing proud in the middle of the ocean on a small rock. If you want to escape noisy tourists, go to Echo Beach, a peaceful area close to the crowds and away from civilization’s claw.
Fairy-Tale Bruges, Belgium
Those of you who always wanted to see how was a princess’ life, you can visit Bruges, in Belgium and enjoy unearthly scenery. Enchanted Bruges will create a romantic atmosphere for couples who want to enjoy a lesser known city-break. Horse drawn carriage rides and Belgian chocolates are a great recipe to spend Valentine’s Day in traditional style.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
When in love, you feel like dancing all the time. So grab your lover and dance on sensual rhythms of tango in its very birth-place: Argentina. Beef steak and a cup of red wine will provide the “fuel” to spend all night dancing, sharing a sexy embrace with your partner.
Charleston, South Carolina
Magnolia-lined streets, rose gardens and butterfly pavilions make Charleston a perfect destination for couples in love. The historic ambiance given by the big mansions and luxuriant vegetation creates a wonderful ageless feel. While in Charleston don’t forget to enjoy a fresh seafood meal.
Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera
Italy, the country of Romeo and Juliet, offers a lot of Valentine’s Day destinations. One of them is on the Riviera and it’s called Cinque Terre. It’s rocky shores offer a beautiful view on the harbor while the many hiking trails lead the adventurous tourist into the heart of the Italian agriculture with the vineyards and the picturesque villages around them.
The cuisine also offer a number of pasta delights and no pizza is better than the Italian local-made one. The Italian Riviera had two main parts, one rich in glamorous nightlife – the Riviera di Ponente and the more rural one, with its stunning scenery – the Riviera di Levante.
There are plenty of romantic getaways in the whole world; the only important thing is to enjoy the Valentine’s Day with that special one, no matter where you chose to go. A walk in the nearest park with the right person can seem a week-long vacation at a five star resort in Malaysia.
