Top 10 Most Romantic Travel Destination Alternatives

Top 10 Most Romantic Travel Destination Alternatives

Love is in the air!
We had decided to post a write up on places which would think of as the Top 10 most romantic travel destination (alternatives, yeah)!

What place(s) comes to your mind whenever someone mentions "romantic" places? 
Many will think of Paris, one of the most expensive places on earth. While have been there, we would say "yeah, Paris is romantic, but we seriously do think there're many other alternatives places which are much cheaper and filled with romance too!".

So, after travelling to many parts of the world, would like to recommend you our Top 10 of the World's Most Romantic Travel Destination Alternatives, with all listed below (not in any order) :

1. Matshushima, Japan
Ranked one of the Top 3 Scenics of Japan (attributed to 1643 and scholar Hayashi Gahō), Matshushima definitely is a charming place. Quiet and serene, the views here are stunning with some 260 tiny islands.

Many Japanese poets got their inspiration while being at Matshushima, and there's even a story where a monk decided not to leave because of the scenes being too captivating!

Well, since those literati were enchanted with Matshushima, you can't be wrong to spend romantic moments there!

2. Florence, Italy
The birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and the home of great lovers like Casanova, Romeo and Juliet, Italy is definitely a must visit country in Europe. While everyone will choose Venice and Rome over everywhere else, begs to differ. Florence is our choice :)

Be sure to head over to Piazzale Michelangelo for a magnificent view of Florence, even at night! As with this picture on the right, you can be sure to spend a romantic time in Florence.

3. Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Český Krumlov is famous for its Old Town, with 300 protected medieval buildings, and its castle complex, the second largest in the Czech Republic. Being small with about only 14,000 residents, it is warm and nostalgic to whoever had been there.

Forget a moment about city hustle; or even the materialistic metropolitan... with a simple, quiet dinner and refreshing air, your Valentine might be one of the most memorable experience in your life.

4. Nice, France
Called Nice la Belle (Nissa La Bella in Niçard), which means Nice the Beautiful, you can't be wrong to find romantic moments here. Located on the south east coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, Nice spots some most gorgeous beaches and lovely seaside promenade.

Take a leisurely stroll along The Promenade des Anglais in the evening, and seal it with a candle light dinner by the pedestrian promenade: that's what we call romantic touch!

5. Barcelona, Spain
Founded as a Roman city, Barcelona houses some of the world most unique buildings. The rambling streets, copious plazas and various options for good views make Barcelona a perfect setting if you're in the mood for love.

And if buildings and parks aren't your cup of tea, you can still take a romantic evening stroll along the beach.

6. Bali, Indonesia
An exotic island of beaches, rain forests, waterfalls, volcanoes and sapphire blue water, Bali is one of the world's great romantic destinations. Many day trips are available for either those who are adventurous or nature lovers. 

With all the funs during the day, settle down yourselves with romantic dinner facing the serene terrace rice paddy fields or candle light dinner by the beaches before retreating into romantic resorts abundant here.

7. Bruges, Belgium
Bruges is a postcard perfect stop on any tour of Europe. Picturesque market squares, dreamy canals and old whitewashed almshouses all evoke a world long since gone. Bruges is all about the romance and it is possible to visit all the places by foot so no need any transportation. 

You can also take the horse carriage from the market square and see all those places or have a nice boat trip and have a different view of Bruges.

You would have to try hard to have an unromantic weekend in Bruges! The place drips romanticness!

8. Vienna, Austria
Vienna is such a romantic city, not only does it have the most romantic history, but with so many white buildings, picturesque coffee shops, wineries, beautiful parks and old castles it makes this place perfect for a romantic weekend – even for budget travelers.

For the evenings, why not sample an opera, ballet or concert? Vienna boasts a proud musical heritage and has produced a number of renowned artistic geniuses, such as Schubert, Brahms and Mozart. There are hundreds of bars, clubs and music venues across the city offering countless opportunities to enjoy classical concerts - but make sure you book in advance, as performances at major venues sell out fast!

9. Phuket, Thailand
This place needs no introduction. Pack a picnic and watch the sunset. Ideal for honeymooners, Phuket offers a wide choice of hotels and resorts such as; boutique hotels, small luxury resorts, romantic beach bungalows, excellent dining, day trips and more.

10. Budapest, Hungary
Budapest has managed to avoid the beer-heavy stag parties and, for the most part, remain a calm and relaxing place for romance. Budapest is often referred to as the ‘Paris of the East’ and is one of the best value city breaks for couples.

Cruise along the river Danube, kiss your loved one in a steaming thermal bath and enjoy a glass of Hungarian Törley ‘champagne’ at the Four Seasons hotel; we don't know what is romantic if these aren't.

Well, these are our pick for Top 10 Most Romantic Travel Destination Alternatives
