Finding a place to vacation with your significant other is exciting, however, some places are better than others when it comes to couples.
You don’t want kids screaming, families yelling or singles partying like it’s their last night on earth.
Couples destinations are somewhere you can relax, recharge and have fun with your significant other.
These are the 5 most inspiring couples destinations…
1. Bali, Indonesia
Looking for a place where you and your significant other can enjoy massages, activities, delicious food and 5-star lodgings all without breaking the bank?
Bali is that place.
With purchasing power so high (1 CAD = 11525 IDR) your couples vacation can be filled with amenities that may just make Bali a regular vacation destination. Go on an adventure and snorkel the beautiful coastline, trek to the islands many waterfalls or watch the sunset over the rice fields. Then wind down with a 1-hour massage (Only 10 Bucks!) a glass of wine and a 3-course meal, all from your guest house with an infinity pool.
2. Greek Islands, Greece
You’ve probably seen pictures all over Instagram of whitewashed towns overlooking the ocean… with good reason. The Greek islands offer couples incredible scenery combined with warm weather and serene waters. Enjoying the laid-back culture is what Greece is all about + the food and drink!
3. Venice, Italy
Any couples travel list wouldn’t be complete without Venice (which also has a soft spot in our hearts). It may be cliche’ but floating through the city on a gondola in the evening is definitely a bucket-list activity every couple should try at least once.
Walking (and boating) through the city offers beautiful sights and architecture, from the scenic views off Rialto Bridge as well as Doge’s Palace. Your sure to get lost within the narrow streets, but that’s all part of the fun (hopefully one of you has a good sense of direction)
4. Alberta, Canada
More of the outdoor type? A trip to our home province of Alberta and to Banff National Park offers breathtaking views of the Rockies. With hundreds of hiking trails, some leading to romantic and secluded aqua-colored lakes, the Rockies can be your urban escape. Enjoy staying at one of the many mountain lodges in Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper or Canmore
Thailand offers incredible value and even more variety for traveling couples. Looking for those island vibes? Head to Krabi province which is home to the beautiful islands of Ko Phi Phi and Kho Lanta.
Want more of an urban locale? Head to Bangkok and explore the streets but be sure to watch the sunset from Red Sky Bar an incredible rooftop restaurant and bar offering breathtaking views of the city.
Or get out in nature and visit the Elephant sanctuaries outside of Chang Mai. Use the De Naga hotel as your home-base, the best we stayed at in Thailand.
Better yet do it all!
