  1. Hey Carla, amazing list. To add on, Santorini in Greece is another most romantic city in the world to enjoy a secluded getaway.

  2. Didn’t expect Bangkok to be a romantic place. But the image said it all. It is an amazing list and I liked it. Have you been to Dubai? It is a great romantic destination too. I liked the attractions they have, the adventures, the beaches and diving, and the romantic restaurants all sum up to be one of the best romantic destinations. During our trip, we had a nice date at the Lounge in the Sheraton Hotel which was connected to one of the largest shopping malls in Dubai. Made a lot of memories on our tour.

    in Africa and fourth highest of the Seven Summits. 
    It is located
    northeastern Tanzania near the border of Kenya and It is considered the tallest
    freestanding mountain in the world. I think this is really awesome place to explore the real beauty of the world.
