Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, but don’t worry, you still have time to plan something. Don’t just go for chocolates and flowers this time. Instead, try to get away for a night or two with your lover. So, where shall we go? According to the data of Airbnb couples traveling this weekend (Feb. 9-11), the top five destinations are Paris, Tokyo, Los Angeles, London, and New York.
OK, the fact is that no matter what you do in Paris it’s always going to be romantic. Why not try a ‘Wine and Cheese’ pairing experience? For $60 one person, you and your lover can taste four different French wines and pair with four local kinds of cheese (all on a baguette), while seated at a charming tasting room in the center of the Latin Quarter.
Then, book a stay at the two-bedroom houseboat docked on the Seine River that comes with exceptional and romantic views of the Eiffel Tower for $256 one night. Head out on the boat’s deck after night to watch the Eiffel Tower shine. Don’t forget the champagne!
If you are going to Tokyo for your Valentine’s Day, you’d better book a sushi-making experience. After all, nothing is sexier than watching your lover cook with their hands.
For $52 one person, you can join chef Kazuki, who’s now the president of 100-year old restaurant Ginza. And you’ll certainly learn from the best because he has taught more than 5,000 people his craft.

While there are plenty of things to do in Los Angeles, perhaps the most iconic thing to experience with your partner in this Valentine’s Day is taking a surf lesson together.

New York City
Like all the cities listed above, New York City has plenty to offer in this Valentine’s Day. Why not try something a little different and take a tour of the catacombs beneath the Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral?
