When people usually think romantic retreats, they think Hawaii, the Caribbean or Paris, but the world is a very big place full of wonders and awe-inspiring locations! So we’ve put together a little list of romantic places together so you and your partner can explore the world through its unbeaten paths.
1. Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt
You won’t get many couples that choose Egypt over Hawaii for a romantic getaway, but this sandy paradise is more than you think. It is located on the Southern tip on the shores of the Red Sea and with a sub-tropical climate you can expect lots of beach time and romantic resorts where you are your beau can relax and enjoy such a unique location. Far from the desert images you may associate with Egypt, this city is full of lush tropical greenery and water sports.
2. New Orleans, USA
New Orleans is one of my favourite places in all of America. With such a rich history, both devastating and joyful, this city is a world unto it’s own. The Cajun cuisine is to die for, with such unique produce around. The French quarter is dynamic and beautiful providing a fun and lively stay among the world of the city. Outside of the city proper there are so many things to explore, the historic cemeteries and voodoo culture, the independent stores, the swamps and the countryside, good ol’ southern hospitality is here in droves.
3. Budapest, Hungary
Often named one of the most beautiful and exemplary cities to visit, Budapest is steeped in lavish history and full of life, making it the perfect location for your romantic trip away.
4. Shanghai, China
This place is buzzing with people, history and lights. An industrious city, they have gone all out to create one impressive cityscape. It also provides easy access to the countries gorgeous countryside and natural wonders, not to mention the usual tourist spots like the Great Wall.
5. Melbourne, Australia
Australia has lots of wonders to offer you on your trip, but my favourite city has to be Melbourne. Easily explorable, ever interesting offering a bunch of secret delights like the Japanese Mountain Retreat, it is the gateway to a gorgeous countryside drives including wineries, and the city itself has a beautiful skyline, best viewed from your hotel window on the Yarra River.
