So, without further ado, let us tell you about these 5 destinations that we have in mind for a memorable celebration.

February is definitely a great time to visit Kyoto with the beautiful plum trees blossoming. While you’re there, attend a special tea ceremony at Baikasai, or what is known as the Plum Blossom Festival held at Kitano Tenmangū Shrine where geishas and their apprentices Maiko perform outdoors under the enchanting blossoms. You will also get the opportunity to celebrate the day of love the Japanese way, as women offer chocolate to men. And if you’re staying in Japan until February 23, take the bullet train to get to Tokyo and witness the grand celebration of Emperor’s Day at the Imperial Palace.

Amalfi Coast, Italy

February is a peaceful time to visit this enchanting region of Italy before it gets too busy. Besides all the carnivals being held during this month, you can enjoy loads of lasagna and turn into a reality your dream to drive and explore the coastline in a sunny yet moderate weather. For a romantic Valentine’s Day, a stroll along the port in Amalfi will make the celebration very much worth it.

Marrakech, Morocco

Also a quiet month for Marrakech, February has a lot in store if you choose to visit the city now, with winter feeling like spring there. While the Atlas Mountains are still covered with snow – yes, snow in Africa! – you can plan a day for winter activities. If you encounter a cold day during your trip, you can pay a visit to the Majorelle Garden, where you’ll discover plant species from five continents and enjoy the microclimate, which won’t make you feel neither cold nor hot. For a special celebration of your love, you can’t miss the chance to relax in a luxurious hammam before you head back out and enjoy Marrakech’s scenery and culture.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

February is the best time to plan a trip to Argentina. In Buenos Aires, get the chance to explore all the museums, galleries and architectural wonders minus the crowds that usually visit it during the high season. And for a special love celebration, it’s the Tango Festival that will take your trip to a whole new level. If you’re a fan of this dance of passion, you will get the chance to participate with your partner in some beginner’s lessons or simply enjoy watching people dance and fill the streets with love.

Provence, France

In this region of France, February has a different taste. Besides getting the chance to experience romance the old-school way, the cities of Provence celebrate the coming of Spring through festivals that will immerse you in their culture and joyful vibes amidst natural scenes taken over by mimosas and lavender. That’s a true feast for the eyes and the soul!
