When it comes to romantic getaways, Paris always tops the list. But plenty of other cities are made for lovebirds. Here are 7 of the most romantic cities that aren't Paris.
1. Bali, Indonesia
As one of the world's top destinations for honeymoons, it doesn't get more romantic than Bali. The island's filled with ancient temples, glistening beaches, hidden waterfalls and luxurious spas--and it's THE place to take horseback rides on the beach. If you plan your trek right, you'll bump into Tanah Lot, an ancient temple built on a rock overlooking the ocean. There's also plenty of intrigue swimming around Bali's surrounding turquoise waters. Beginner divers can head to Menjangan Island for a close-up view of colorful coral reefs, ocean sunfish, seahorses and pipefish. When it's time to relax (sunbathing can be so stressful), head to Padma Resorts Legian's spa, which offers exotic indulgences, like floral foot baths, lime-and-ginger salt scrubs, quartz lift facials and Balinese massage.
2. Las Vegas, Nevada
Any real-talk description of Vegas should begin with 'leave your inhibitions at the door.' And nowhere is that more true than at the sexually-charged Zumanity, a show at the NewYork that blends off-the-rails sensuality with Cirque's trademark acrobatics. A little dinner beforehand is de rigueur, and you can leave the bachelor-party vibe and buffets far behind with a cozy tete-a-tete at Hugo's Cellar, a classic gem on Fremont Street, where every lady receives a rose.
