Whether you are organizing a far-flung honeymoon or a romantic mini-break, planning a special holiday for you and bae can be overwhelming.Choosing the perfect destination can be tricky, but fret not – PEAKLIFE is here to help you choose from a list of the world’s most romantic getaways!
Travel is an inalienable part of romance – especially if you select a break that intrigues and entertains you both, while also ensuring that you spend time together.While a Valentine’s Day bouquet of long-stemmed red roses and a box of exquisite chocolates can certainly set the stage for romance, nothing’s quite as swoon-worthy as a trip custom-made for two.
To some people, Valentine’s Day is the day you’re supposed to buy flowers or chocolates for your loved one. But to others, Valentine’s Day is about expressing your innermost feelings about that special someone. Regardless of what you think about Valentine’s Day, this year you should tailor your valentine’s gifts to tell that special someone exactly how you feel. With a pinch of romance, a bit of planning, and a little creativity, you’ll be winning your lover’s heart in no time.
So here are some romantic getaways to express your love to your Valentine:
- Ipanema Beach, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Beautiful bays and humped mountains give Rio a sublime setting fit for any fling, especially if you stay infamous beachside suburb Ipanema, where the tall and tan girls go walking like a samba, just as the song promises.Sand, sunsets and beautiful peoples will make the hormones raging. Better yet; a week after Valentine’s Day comes the city’s bold, brash carnival. Bossanova rhythms play, cocktails shake, and love is in the air.
- Whirlpool Hill, China
The destination Chinese newlyweds aspire to visit on their honeymoon is lushly beautiful, with steep mountains rising above emerald rice fields and meandering rivers like a scene from a scroll painting. The teahouse atop Whirlpool Hill might have the most romantic views. Take a cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo past magnificent landscapes of karst piles and lush green valleys and you might feel happy even after.
- Tomb Of Hafez, Iran
This beautiful historic city, fabled for its rose gardens, should be the romantic getaway of choice for adventurous lovers, though you’ll have to remain decorous in public. While the tomb of a 14th century poet might seem an odd place for love, locals come here to drink tea amidst rose beds, pomegranate trees, and fountains and recite Hafez’s poetry about nightingales and summer evenings as the light fades.
- Chillon Castle, Switzerland
Squatting like the epitome of medieval chivalry on a rock at the edge of Lake Geneva, Chillon Castle is the pick for those taking a saccharine view of love. Snowy mountains rear in the background, swans paddle and the gorgeous lakeshore walk to the castle from Montreux is a flower-draped gambol. The chateau was celebrated by many Romantic writers.
- Ferris Wheel, Austria
For a bit of loving the old–fashioned way, settle into a red cabin on this Ferris wheel and admire the twinning lights of Vienna. If you are an advance planner, you can even book champagne and canapés or a four-course meal as you circumnavigate; if all goes well, weddings are also held in cabins. A Ferris wheel has stood here since 1897, and the surrounding Prater amusement park provides plenty of turn-of-the-century nostalgia.
