Five Romantic Valentine’s Day Destinations

Valentine’s Day is approaching. So it’s the perfect time to take your Valentine on a romantic couple trip. Here are some of our most favourite romantic cities:

Rome: The home of great lovers like Romeo and Juliet is a champion of romance. Rent a vespa to explore the historic city, kiss at the Spanish Steps during sunset or make a wish in the Trevi Fountain.

London: Fall head over heels for each other while strolling through the neighbourhood of Notting Hill or checking out the antiques market at Portobello Road. Overlook the entirety of London in a private capsule at London Eye or walk down Broadway Market from London Fields to the Regent’s Canal in the heart of Hackney, East London.

Paris: Paris and romance goes together like champagne and oysters. Visit “Le Mur Des Je t’aime” (The Wall of Love), have “Petit Dejeuner” at a traditional Paris Cafe and climb to the top of the “Tour d’Eiffel” for breathtaking views.

Venice: This city tops the list of the world’s most romantic places. Kiss at Rialto Bridge, enjoy a romantic gondola ride or watch an opera at Teatro La Fenice.

Bangkok: You prefer a more exotic destination outside of Europe? Then Bangkok is you place to be. Dine at the Mandarin Oriental, watch the sunset on Moon Bar with a 360 degree cityscape panorama, have a glass of champagne at CRU Champagne Bar or go on a Chao Phraya River cruise.
