- Paris, France
For cosmopolitan couples hoping to take a cultural city break for their romantic getaway, Paris is the most obvious destination of choice. You and your partner can visit the world famous Louvre to get your cultural fix, stroll through the Palais-Royal gardens for some quiet time to yourselves and ride the elevators all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower for the ultimate romantic experience. If you’re travelling on a budget, Paris is the perfect city to stroll around and enjoy without spending much money at all. Even if the culture and views don’t interest you, the fantastic food certainly will.
- Venice, Italy
Rome may be the Italian city of choice for history buffs, but Venice is definitely your best bet for a romantic vacation far from home. Gondola is the transport of choice for couples in Venice, so sit back and relax as you take in the city’s famous canals, delicious food and historic architecture. With a quieter atmosphere than Rome and a mysterious edge that is unmatched by any other city, Venice is the perfect hideaway for lovers.
- Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Bora Bora is one of the world’s most popular honeymoon spots thanks to its lush scenery, incredible beaches and romantic sunsets. The island has so many luxurious, beautiful hotels that it would be difficult to pick out the best, and there is a beach to suit every mood, from busy and bustling to secluded and serene. Explore Bora Bora’s blue lagoons with a snorkel to see the tropical fish that fill the water or go jet skiing for a more adventurous romantic getaway.
- Maui, Hawaii
If you’re looking for white sandy beaches and a relaxed, laid back atmosphere, you can’t do much better than Maui.

Maui is one of those magical vacation destinations that will make you feel like uprooting your whole life and moving to the island- just make sure you’ve booked your return flight in advance so you can resist the temptation.
