Whether a quick weekend getaway outside town or a fortnight in a far-flung place, traveling with one’s significant other can go 1 of 2 ways. It will result in either the flames of romance being fanned into a roaring fire, or a long, silent, sullen trip home, with both parties plotting separation, or worse.
Of course, the destination can, and does, affect the quality of the vacation. If the missus thinks the holiday accommodation is a room with a view of a sun-kissed bay that rings with the sweet laughter of children at play, and it turns out to be a room with a view of a vomit-spattered alley behind a noisy pub, well, do not expect the holiday to turn out well.
Likewise, if the surprise romantic getaway you have just been told about conjures up images of alpine skiing at a luxurious resort you have wanted to visit for years, and you end up trudging through a mosquito-infested African swamp on an ill-thought-out charitable expedition that is nothing more than poverty tourism, you are probably not going to be very happy about it. Avoid such miseries by traveling to the world’s most romantic cities instead – alone, if you need to.

New York City; the Big Apple. It may be a den of iniquity and a hotbed of crime, mayhem, and murder, but what a skyline!
The city built on the USA’s Hudson River is the setting of countless romantic novels and movies, and it is the very place in which some of the world’s most dramatic real-life love stories played out. The city is filled with history, and yet it is at the forefront of cutting-edge modernity. Among the attractions favoured by lovers enjoying quality time together are Central Park, Staten Island and the Statue of Liberty. New York is also jam-packed with romantic restaurants; perfect places for a candle-lit dinner after a day of exploring one of the world’s most vibrant, and most romantic, cities.
Cape Town, South Africa
Founded in the 17th century, Cape Town has the distinction of being South Africa’s oldest city. It is a modern city whose heritage was influenced by the Dutch, French, Malaysians, British, Jewish, and indigenous peoples who made it their home during the first couple of centuries of its existence. Among the places you simply must explore are Long Street, the colourful Bo-Kaap quarter, the Castle of Good Hope, and the infamous Robben Island.
More than its unique architecture, friendly inhabitants, and fascinating history is its location. Cape Town is one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Dominated by Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak, and Lion’s Head, the city boasts golden beaches, exquisite parks and gardens such as Kirstenbosch, and is a stone’s throw from the Western Cape’s world-class Wine Route. It is nothing less than a city in which love can grow under the hot African sun.
