Earlier this week, in the spirit of the upcoming Valentine’s Day celebrations, CNN Travel released their top 10 most romantic destinations that you likely didn’t know about.
No one said you had to plan a romantic getaway on Valentine’s Day – in fact, you can plan a wonderful holiday for two anytime of the year. It’s likely CNN Travel was thinking the same thing.
With that in mind, we had a look at their list and found out that three of the destinations – including the very top spot – are included in Nezasa’s long list of destinations in Asia.
Here they are:
With its dazzling colours, sounds and smells, this Rajasthan city is a magical place. Its dreamlike Lake Palace featured in James Bond’s Octopussy and it is home to one of the most spectacular palace-turned-hotels in the world. If you and your loved one are in India for just a short time, this is the place to go. Check out Nezasa’s itineraries that include Udaipur.
Quote from CNN Travel: “Men like their mustaches long enough to twirl, women like their saris bright enough to blind and musicians sing their gypsy ballads with enough raw passion to break hearts.”
Hoi An, Vietnam
Shakespeare suggested that music was the food of love; well, in this case, we’ll turn it around and say that food is the music of love. Nothing opens up your spirit and soul like a delectable plate of local cuisine, and Hoi An – as the ultimate capital of culinary art in a country already known for great food – delivers on this count. If the two of you are a couple who like to go out on dinner dates, then you should feast on this slice of Vietnam. Check out Nezasa’s itineraries that include Hoi An.
Quote from CNN Travel: “For a foodie couple on a tight budget, there are few places in the world that can pack such a culinary punch at such a low price in such an absorbing environment.”
Galle, Sri Lanka
Perhaps you like history and your significant other likes beaches. Or you like crumbling forts and culture while your significant other likes dazzling, locally produced art. Galle has all of that in its streets and throws in fusion restaurants to make it even more fitting for a couple with diversified tastes. Check out Nezasa’s itineraries that include Galle and the Southwest Beaches.
Quote from CNN Travel: “Located in the heart of a perfectly preserved hexagonal stone fort and within eyeshot of a serene stretch of sand, Sri Lanka’s whimsical southern charmer ticks all the boxes on romantic travel checklists.”
Of course, romance can be generated anywhere at any time in any place. But Udaipur, Hoi An and Galle are especially wonderful places for a special holiday. CNN Travel recognizes that, and we do too.
