February will be here before you know it. That means valentines, chocolates, red roses, and a date night with your sweetheart is just around the corner. Instead of spending a quiet evening at home or eating a typical meal at a nearby restaurant, why not spend your Valentine’s Day together in a completely new place? After all, at least four out of 10 travelers feel more romantic on vacation, so this is the perfect holiday to jet off to an exotic locale with your better half.

While you might think of Paris or Rome right away as a top romantic destination, there are plenty of other cities with exciting offerings for February 14. Below, we’ll talk about three of our favorite cities to spend Valentine’s Day and give you the low-down on the must-dos for your lovers’ getaway.

Want something that’ll take your breath away? Book a cheap flight to Barcelona with your honey.

Barcelona actually has its own special version of Valentine’s Day, called Sant Jordi’s Day. It takes place in the middle of April, which means you can surprise your partner with tickets for cheap flights in February and still have plenty of time to plan the trip. Sant Jordi (or Saint George, as you might know him) is the patron saint of Catalunya and is known for slaying a dragon and rescuing a beautiful princess. Okay, so the story might be apocryphal, but the celebrations are very real. On this day, people give and receive roses and books. It’s a day when love is in the air and vendors are everywhere.

However, if you want to book a cheap flight to Barcelona this February, there are still plenty of romantic attractions to enjoy. You can ride in a hot air balloon over the region’s mountains (or even set out to climb Mount Tibidabo, if you’re an outdoorsy couple!), watch the Magic Fountain show, or spend an evening walking along the beach. And of course, there are countless romantic restaurants throughout the city with beautiful views and scrumptious food to savor.

When you want to go out on the town, reserving a cheap flight to Bangkok is a great Valentine’s idea.

Bangkok might not be the first city you consider when choosing a Valentine’s destination, but this Thai city truly has a lot to offer — especially if you enjoy adventure and nightlife. There are several dinner cruise boat tours you can take (with even more intimate options available). You can also see all the city has to offer on a Bangkok Night Lights Tuk Tuk tour. You can also head to a highly rated restaurant or rooftop bar, join a party at a club, and then end the night in a boutique hotel. Don’t forget to stop at the flower market to pick up some roses for your love.

When you want a bit of everything lovey-dovey, cheap flights to Hong Kong can be the perfect choice.

If you can’t decide exactly what you’re looking for this Valentine’s Day, you may find the answer in Hong Kong. China has three different festivals dedicated to love; our Valentine’s Day is one, but the Seven Sisters Festival and the Spring Lantern Festival embrace this message of romance, too. So really there are three different chances for romance throughout the year. If you’re traveling there for February 14, be sure to check out the gorgeous Nan Lian gardens and the stellar sunsets on the water. The Hong Kong Park is perfect for a romantic picnic, too! There are plenty of dinner cruises around, but you could also take a helicopter ride for an unconventional experience with your other half that will give you a bird’s eye view of the city.

When you book cheap flights to Barcelona, Bangkok, or Hong Kong this Valentine’s Day, your trip will be one neither of you will soon forget. So forget the traditional lists of top Valentine’s Day destinations and choose something a little more adventurous. Contact us today to get started on making your travel plans a reality.
