When romance sends you packing
Romantics out there, are you in luck this year or what! The day to celebrate your love—Valentine’s Day, of course—falls on a weekend this year. It’s the perfect time to plan a romantic getaway with your partner. A quiet sunset by the beach, or a candlelight dinner in the chill of a hill station, here are some of the destinations you could take off to, this Valentine’s Day.
Backwaters of Kerala
Glide along the mirror-like calmness of the backwaters in a houseboat and soak in the peace and quiet. Feast your eyes on lush green fields and sample the local cuisine (we recommend the delectable seafood). If the monotony gets to you, you could hop off and take a walk by the fields.
Catch some time in the snow before winter leaves. And what better place to do this than in the picturesque hill station of Manali! Take a walk along snowy pathways, or spend a warm evening by the fireplace. If you are feeling a little adventurous, why not try your hand at skiing too?
The mist of the hills beckons from coffee country, Coorg. Check yourself into a cosy little homestay, or one of the many quiet resorts that dot this region and you are sure to have as charming a Valentine’s Day as could be. Go on little treks, take up bird watching, discover streams and quiet glades, or just sit back and sip the coffee with your significant other.
If you are game to head out a little further, why not fly to the pristine white sandy beaches of the Maldives? You could get yourself a room out in the sea itself, with the gentle sound of waves all around. While there, try scuba diving and spot some colourful sea life.
Sun-kissed beaches, volcanoes, lakes… this little island has got all that and more. Pick your hotel depending on what kind of holiday you want. You could be stretched out on the beach counting waves, or cycling through villages and terraced fields, or trekking up a volcano, or creating a photo essay of Bali’s numerous beautiful temples.
Can’t take the weekend off, or didn’t get tickets to your destination of choice? Fret not. You can still make the day special with a gift for your partner, something they will cherish. Shop online, from the comfort of your couch, and pick up a pretty trinket at http://www.josalukkasonline.com.
