We’re literally a few days away from Valentine’s Day and if you haven’t planned your romantic getaway with your significant other yet, it’s not too late! Take advantage of the many cheap airlines and online promos and book your ticket to one of these romantic getaways in Asia.

1. Bali, Indonesia

Beaches, villas and resorts, fantastic food options, sunsets and Instagrammable temples – these are just a few reasons why Bali is the #1 hotspot for couples. If you want to find paradise on earth, then this is as close as it gets.

What to do:

2. Chiang Mai, Thailand

While not as popular as its sister city Bangkok, Chiang Mai is perfect for couples who want to immerse in Thai history and culture sans the cosmopolitan crowds.

What to do:

3. Hoi An, Vietnam

Quaint and charming with a decidedly old-world feel to it, the Old Town of Hoi An with its many shophouses, art galleries and food streets is perfect for exploring together. Just make sure you have comfortable footwear on because it’s going to be a lot of walking!

What to do:

4. Bangkok, Thailand

The bustling city of Bangkok presents all kinds of couples with a multitude of activities to do. Whether it’s shopping, eating, temple hopping or getting a Thai massage, you can have exactly the trip you want in this megalopolis.

What to do:

5. Hong Kong

If you’re looking for a city that melds urban sophistication with tradition, then Hong Kong should be top of mind. The recent political turmoil has brought down prices for hotels in this city, notorious for being the world’s most expensive property market. The brave will definitely get more bang for their buck if they head to the city at this time – prices have almost never and are unlikely to be this affordable again! Another upside? Way less crowds to contend with, and getting all the most photogenic spots all to yourself!

What to do:

6. El Nido, Palawan

If white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and marine life sound like your idea of a perfect vacay, then the island of El Nido in the Philippines might just be up your alley. Sold yet? Don’t forget to bring lots of sunscreen and mosquito repellent!

What to do:

7. Siem Reap, Cambodia

Culture or history buff? How about archeology? The ancient temples of the famed Angkor Wat complex must be calling your name. But don’t think that’s the only thing to do in Siem Reap. They have a colorful food scene, a vibrant night life and even a few activities for the adventurous…

What to do:

8. Singapore

With a wealth of history (and amazing museums), a thriving economy, modern infrastructure and a medley of cultures, Singapore has become a hotlist destination for all types of travelers, and couples are no exception!

What to do:

9. Tokyo, Japan

You can visit Japan on multiple occasions and still not scratch the surface of what this amazing country has to offer. But if you’re looking for a place to start, we recommend Tokyo, with its fusion of futuristic and old-world sights.

What to do:

10. Koh Samui, Thailand

This not-so-hidden paradise in Thailand is a beach lover’s haven. With coastlines as far as the eye can see and snorkeling opportunities galore (not to mention the buzzing nightlife!), a quick trip to Koh Samui is perfect for resting, relaxing, and recharging.

What to do:

11. Seoul, South Korea

One of the most visited cities in the world, Seoul has plenty to offer a wide variety of travelers. Whether you’re in it for the culture and history, the sumptuous food, the scenic natural landscapes or the entertainment, this bustling city is never a bad idea!

What to do:

12. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur is more than just the Petronas Twin Towers and shopping. Of course, both are highly visited and anticipated in every trip to KL, but if you’re looking to skip the retail therapy, we’ve got some other options for you…

What to do:

13. Goa, India

A popular honeymoon spot, Goa is equal amounts of fun under the sun and lively nightlife. From remote beaches and waterfalls to Portuguese-inspired architecture and romantic restaurants, you’re guaranteed some amazing experiences in this city.

What to do:

  • Rent a private boat and spend the day on the remote Butterfly Island
  • Stroll through the picturesque Fontainhas, the Old Latin Quarter of Panjim
  • Marvel at the natural beauty of Dudhsagar Falls
  • Go on a cruise on the Chapora River
  • Savour a candle-lit dinner at the Riverside in The Leela

14. Taipei, Taiwan

If the Taiwanese street food isn’t enough of a reason to convince you to visit Taipei, the many natural and panoramic sites will surely sway you in favor of a trip.
