Plan your romantic vacation at these intimate locations for a fairytale getaway.
If you’re looking for a romantic vacation with your partner, then these are the places for you. Whether you’re ready to tie the knot, or not, you can still have a romantic trip and enjoy each other’s company, savouring special moments together.
Banpo Bridge, South Korea
Located in Seoul, this bridge spans across the Han River and is a popular destination for travel lovers and locals. What lends this destination the essence of romance is the Moonlight Rainbow Show.
LED lights illuminate the water as emerges from the bridge and elegantly falls back down to the Han River. This magical event shows during the day and at night. See it both times as they both provide a different atmospheric backdrop. During the day, the fountains are decorated with willow trees and leaves. So when the sun shines through the water it creates millions of sparkling lights. At night, the sparkles come to life with bright and vibrant colors. The show operates from April to October.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Puerto Vallarta, in Jalisco, and Riviera Nayarit, in the state of Nayarit, offer more than 250 miles of golden coastline.
Escape the crowds and find your own intimate getaway in Puerto Vallarta’s Boca de Tomatlan, where the beach is rarely crowded. At Conchas Chinas, expect gentle tides and rich sea life. If you prefer a mountain backdrop, look no further than Garza Blanca.
In Riviera Nayarit, the Nuevo Vallarta resort area offers clear blue water and sandy beaches as soft as powder. To the north, Bucerias has a five-mile shoreline and a calm surf.
Lake Bled, Slovenia
At Lake Bled, you and your partner will definitely find ultimate bliss. Many of the activities here revolve around the crystal waters and the picture-perfect Bled Castle, which lies in the center of the body of water. You can tour the castle which takes about half of the day.
If you both love sharing a thrill, try the Emerald River adventure where you can go hiking, swimming, rafting, and more! Feeling more adventurous? Try kayaking through an underground mine with nothing but headlights to guide you forward. This is for beginners and experienced kayakers.
Brooklyn Botanical Garden, New York
Gardens are always reliably romantic places to visit. However, at Brooklyn Botanical Garden you can experience all kinds of lovely works of nature. There are different kinds of flowers in each season and during spring, you can soak in the view of the gorgeous cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms, or the Sakura Matsuri Festival, is one of the most beloved events in the area. There is a whole path filled with cherry blossom trees and creates the feeling of being in a wonderland. Great spot for a date!
Crescent Bridge, Taiwan
Immersing youself in a new culture together is one way to take a memorable romantic vacation. The Crescent Bridge in Taiwan gets a magical hue in the evening when the bridge lights up in many different colors that compliments the unique shape.
One of the top things to do around the Crescent Bridge is the local night market and the city where the Guilin Store is located. If you’re feeling hungry after all the shopping, stop by the night markets where you will find inexpensive but delicious food.
You can walk or cycle across the arched bridge and can even look at the river below you since the bottom trail is glass. If you’re afraid of heights then don’t look down!
This is more of a tropical getaway. It’s perfect for relaxing if you and your partner just want some peace. In Cartagena, homes are bundled close together, providing a sense of community.
Take a DIY Cartagena city tour and witness the charm of the colonial architecture and the vibrant colors. If you and your partner want to be more adventurous during your time together, why not soak in some mud inside a volcano? You can climb inside the Totumo Volcano, which is one of the smallest volcanoes in the world. The warm mud is said to have healing properties.
Last, but certainly not the least, is Colmar. This is the place to go if you want a more intimate romantic vacation. Take a stroll around the colorful, adorable buildings, and walk across the mini bridge. You can even go on a romantic boat ride across the river and experience the town in a different way. If you’re feeling hungry, there are plenty of restaurants in the area that will satisfy you and your partner’s cravings. It’s highly recommended to experience Colmar during the day and during the night. Both times have a different atmosphere and at night, all the lights turn on to offer a magical fairytale feel.
Who knows, maybe you’ll end up tieing the knot at one of these locations on your romantic vacation!
