Love is in the air...

It's that time of year when love is in the air and Valentine's cards are in the post.

To pay our resepct to all those couples travelling together we've pulled together a few of our favourite romatic desitnations - whether for scenery, atmosphere, or just a great place to spend quality some time with someone special:

The cultural heart of Argentina's Lake District is Barriloche, sitting in Northwest Patagonia. The town itself is reminicent of the Swiss Alps, with fir-lined streets of wood and stone buildings, surrounded by breath taking forested hills and lakes. The perfect place to cuddle up in your log cabin or enjoy the numerous outdoor pursuits available. check prices >>

Take the four day hike through the Andes to arrive at the jewel of the old Inca Empire. In a stunning location high on a mountain peak, and surrounded on 3 sides by the Urubamba river, this was one of the few Inca settlements the conquistadores never found. check prices >>

No list of romantic desitnations would be complete without Paris - perhaps the most romantic destination in the world! You can take stroll along the Champs-Elysee or the Siene, check out the views from the top of the Eiffel Tower, visit the numerous art galleries and finish off with a wouthwatering 5 course meal at one of the thousands of great restuarants. check prices >>

Dubrovnik is an intruiging walled city on the Adriatic Coast, founded 1300 years ago as a fortress town. Times have changed, and Dubrovnik is now a mecca for tourists wanting to visit the "Jewel of the Adriatic." The Old Town is full of streets lined with cafes, shops and streets that invite strolling, browsing and stopping for the occasional coffee. In summertime the Dubrovnik Summer Festival hosts a livley array of music, theater and dance performances. check prices >>

If you're looking for a romantic, rustic travel spot in Asia, then Suzhou in China is a top destination to consider. Over 25,000 years old, Suzhou has years of history as the once-capital of the Silk Road. Almost 50% underwater this Asian Venica is located on the edge of a beautiful lage and is rife with canals and bridges - the perfect romantic retreat. check prices >>
