Remember: the important thing is not only to survive a trip together but to come back even stronger and united!
For Nature Lovers – Big Sky, Montana
Make your most ambitious adventure dreams come true in Big Sky, Montana. In an hour’s drive, the vastness of West Yellowstone Park’s landscapes will provide a sense of awe and reverence for nature, especially if you cross with bison, wild sheep, wolves and even bears.
Depending on the season, trek the wilderness with a dog-drawn sleigh expedition or raft the Gallatin Canyon to speed up adrenaline rush.
Romantic lodging options include what is called “glamping” – a kind of refined camping in luxury stalls – or even in beautiful cottages, ranches or hotels near Yellowstone.
After climbing up and down Mount Lone, reward your feet with new cowboy boots at Carter’s Boots in the town of Bozeman, then have a local drink at the nearest bar.
For adrenaline fans – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
If your love is also your partner in sports and adrenaline, then Rio de Janeiro is your perfect vacation choice. It will be hard to choose from so many exciting options, ranging from the stand-up paddle in the Barra Channel to jumping from the hang glider of Pedra Bonita.
Copacabana beach will be the ideal place to challenge your partner for a friendly game of futevolei (a variety of beach volleyball using lower limbs), or to exercise at street gyms.
For couples on budget but full willingness – Brasov, Romania
Once you discover this very romantic treasure in Romania, neither of you will want to come home anymore. The little stone streets look like they’re just a fairy tale, filled with multicolored cafes and shops.
Enjoy the simple pleasures of the city for less than 2 euros for a cup of coffee. If your curiosity persuades you to stroll 40 minutes beyond the city center, abuse your imagination on a visit to Bran Castle, better known as Dracula’s Castle.
After a memorable visit to the Black Church, burned by the great fire of 1689, head to the mountains on a Telecabina (Cable car) or even on foot, through romantic and leafy alleys, and enjoy the view from the top of Mount Tampa. And there’s no escape from the picture next to the white Hollywood-style Brasov sign.
For those who love beach – Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
Puerto Plata is one of the most paradisiacal beach towns in the Dominican Republic. When you’re not enjoying royal life at your seafront hotel, it’s worth it to walk through the historic city or sunbathe on beautiful Playa Bergantin.
Local merchants are very receptive, attentive and always with a smile on their face. The Creole culture of African and Caribbean origins will set the tone for your evening with irresistible rhythms like merengue playing in the bars.
No one will also resist proving Mamajuana (rum-based cocktail, considered an aphrodisiac) – which will leave the couple ready to go back to the dance floor, or the hotel room!
For the gourmet hearts – Istria, Croatia
Many people believe that the stomach wins one’s heart. The region of Istria, Croatia, will feature things like white truffle dishes and fresh fish right off the bat.
The irresistible blue waters and lush landscapes are only compared to the delicious Fritules (a kind of Croatian donut). Take home local produce from the market that sits on the edge of the bay in Rovinj, just after the Church of St. Euphemia with its 196 feet tower.
For romantic vacation without limits – French Polynesia
If your vacation does not include babysitting concerns or tight budgets, then get ready for the two-day trip of your life on the island of Bora Bora in French Polynesia. Starting with the numerous luxury hotels there, with their bungalows with private views of the fantastic beaches.
You can do a lot of romantic things like picnics on secluded beaches, swim with colorful fish, take delicious vanilla mojitos, and appreciate dishes based on the unique ahi tuna.
When you get tired of so much pampering, it’s time to make one of the many excursion options in the area. Among them, a helicopter flight over Mount Otemanu, or a day trip to the municipal market of Pape’ete in Tahiti.
For the romantic soulmates – Seoul, South Korea
If cute selfies with your love are something that can not miss, then Seoul can be the destination of your dreams. On your first day of sightseeing, you (and many other couples) will want to take a photo at the Namsan Seoul Tower – at the top of the mountain, with unique heart-shaped chairs for passionate couples, and endless of padlocks on the Wall of Love.
Calling Seoul for romantic is very modest, especially if you visit Namiseom Island. Although it is 37 miles away from Seoul, the scenery will be worth it, with chestnut trees and poplars lined up in perfection during any season. And a perfect way to end the day: go to DIY Ring Cafe in modern Hongdae area and make your identical jewels – one for each.
