The Taj Mahal is one of the most impressive pieces of architecture in the world, let alone India, and one with a romantic story of its own to rival all others. The iconic structure was built in 1632 as an act of love by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, honouring his wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to their 14th child.
Beat the crowds and try to arrive when the Taj Mahal opens at 6am to experience this already magical place at its most romantic, with the sunrise as a stunning backdrop.
As well as taking time to marvel at the picturesque landmark, you can also stroll hand-in-hand around the 17 hectares of lush garden that surround it.
Flowers are synonymous with Valentine’s Day, but rather than simply presenting your loved one with a bouquet with which to fill their favourite vase, why not take them to visit one of the world’s biggest collections of flowers at Dubai’s Miracle Garden this year?
Here you will see more than 100 million blooming flowers across 70 different species, all showcased in beautiful sculptures and artistic designs.
During your time at the garden, which was launched on Valentine’s Day in 2013, your can stroll under colourful umbrellas of blooms and see the record breaking wall of hearts, igloos and pyramids - all compiled of vibrantly coloured flowers.
At Sri Lanka’s many national parks, you can stay in a rustic tree house built atop the canopies, complete with breath-taking views.
If that wasn’t romantic enough, you can enlist a chef to prepare a delicious, traditional meal using fresh ingredients on a campfire. Then be serenaded to sleep by the natural music of the jungle, from the soft sounds of the blowing wind and flowing streams to the noise of the local wildlife, such as birds and elephants.
Wake up as the sun rises to head out on safari and spot leopards, crocodiles and other local wildlife in their natural habitat.
Make sure this Valentine’s Day is one to remember. Book a flight with flydubai and take part in some of the most romantic activities in the World.
