Halong Bay means “Bay of the Descending Dragon” and legend has it that in ancient times, when the Vietnamese were fighting off foreign invaders, the gods sent a family of dragons to assist in the fight. During the battle, the dragons spat out jewels that would later become the islands that now are scattered around the bay.

prague

Prague, Czech Republic

A city of gold tipped domes, church spires and bridges, this is one of Europe’s finest cities. With the beautiful Vltava River that winds its way around the city, you could not find yourself in a more romantic setting. Catch a live jazz performance at one of the underground clubs or walk around the Old Town on cobbled stone streets. Prague combines old city charm with a vibrant cultural and music scene, making it one of the attractive destinations for a romantic interlude.

copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark

The best thing about this fantastic city is that it’s great for walking. Hop on a sightseeing boat at Nyhavn and take in the beauty of the canals and historic buildings along the water’s edge. Soak in the winter’s sun in King’s Garden, visit the Rosenborg Castle or even go for a ride in the popular Tivoli Gardens.
