The World's Most Romantic Destinations
50 Dreamy Getaways, Private Retreats, and Enchanting Places to Celebrate LoveBook - 2017
For Valentine's Day, National Geographic reveals 50 gloriously romantic vacations in this inspirational planner for weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries, and other amorous special occasions. Filled with more than 200 color photographs of dreamy places--from secluded beaches to exotic jungles to luxurious spas--this book offers the perfect passionate escape to those who have just found love or are celebrating a lifetime of it. Discover the world's most romantic destinations in this elegant photography book--the ideal gift for engagements, weddings, anniversaries, babymoons, Valentine's Day, or couples wanting to indulge in a dream getaway. Alluring photography and evocative text provide a parade of possibilities: you'll find Paris and Venice, Bali and the Bahamas, of course, but also unexpected venues such as the Parque de Amor in Lima, Peru, where couples join in a competition for the longest kiss; and Lovers Point in Pacific Grove, California, which, because it faces east, is one of the few spots on the West Coast where you can watch the sun rise over the water. Any place in the world can be romantic if you love the one you're with, but this book ensures the ultimate getaway with callouts recommending hotel rooms with the best sunset views, restaurants with a flair for romance, and ideas to add a special touch to your trip--for example the best terrace for pre-dinner cocktails, and the nearest beach for a stroll. Sprinkled throughout the book, spreads showcasing jaw-droppingly beautiful destinations include quotes by famous lovers--Casanova in Venice and Heloise and Abelard in Paris, to name a few.
