A tranquil canoe trip that meanders through Botswana’s Okavango Delta; an afternoon spent well in wandering about in centuries-old forts in Rajasthan; sitting at a candle-lit table for two in a garden restaurant in scenic Florence-these are just some of the many moments that inspire you to fall in love. Valentine’s Day apart, these most romantic places serve as idyllic locations for honeymooners, incorrigible dreamers and those in the mood for love, across the year!
Moroccan Moyen Âge
Take out a few days to discover the many attractions of souqs and winding lanes of the ancient medina of Fez-this venue will take you back to the 14th century and will surely leave you wanting for more. The sounds, colors and scents of the mosques and cobbled alleyways; figures cloaked in djellabas and more…. all these create an intoxication that leaves you totally overwhelmed.(image by podiceps)
Garden over the Big Apple
With New Yorkers always searching for innovative ways to view their town, the city is never a disappointment for those in the swooning stages of their lives. The lure of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden-a wide 10,000-square-foot terrace standing stoic atop the Met dressed in wisteria and yew trees, is worth a look. Gape at the mesmeric views of Central Park-which never looked better before and evoke your deepest desires-this place makes you fall in love with your beloved once again!
As you approach the sandstone fort in Jaisalmer, you see it emerging like a mammoth creature from the sea of deserts beyond. Serving as a citadel till date (ever since 1156); this inspiring architectural wonder is flanked by havelis (town houses) etched with intricate latticework, erstwhile royal residences changed into hotels, and places that are reminiscent of the land’s rich and glorious past-in many more ways than one. The romance of Rajasthan has to be seen to be believed and provides a peep in the thriving history of India and its many cultural attributes, with equal fervor.
A Charming Evening in Italy
Constructed dramatically in the lovely landscapes of the vertiginous Amalfi coast, the charm of Positano lures water babies, sun slaves, gastronomes, nature enthusiasts — and lovers. Book a front-row table for two on a summer evening at an awesome waterside cafeteria, order a blissful pizza and a glass filled with Brunello or savor couples entwined as closely as allowed by the law of the land -you have a lot in store for you here.(image by Art Hill)
Petite Promenade, Montreal
Leave your mark and create your own history with a romantic trip below the stars in Mount Royal Park. You may like to start your walk from the picturesque Beaver Lake of Frederick Law Olmsted and then pursue the promenade through woods. Cuddle with your special someone on the lookouts of the stately Chalet–even as you stand breathless savoring the sights of glimmering city lights below
Romantic vacations in these places are bound to leave you deeper in love and asking for more. enjoy-the right way!
