Valentine’s Day comes with a lot of expectations – surprises, gifts, dinner reservations, flowers, movie dates, grand gestures etc. Perhaps the most romantic thing of all is to do something different and get out of town—with your honey, of course. It’s a day – when we can all take a deep breath, relax, and honor a beautiful tradition. If you’re thinking of planning a Valentine’s Day romantic getaway for your special someone, there’s no need to head overseas. India boasts an unparalleled heritage, and many of its cities are filled with sun kissed beaches, exquisite architecture, awe-inspiring attractions, beautiful restaurants and romance at every turn; that will make your significant other fall in love with you all over again.
