Sapa Lake, Sapa, Vietnam
Fascinating attractions abound in the northwestern town of Sapa, but its pride and the most romantic place is the iconic lake and namesake. Here you can chill out while gazing at reflections of the whole town on the water. The view is even more picturesque as light fog lingers longingly over the blurred top of the lake.
Bokeo Nature Reserve, Bokeo, Laos
If you and your better half are wildlife lovers, Bokeo Nature Reserve is your next romantic destination. The protected forest of deciduous trees and mountainous terrains are home to the black-cheeked gibbon once thought to be extinct. The endangered ape species can only be found at high elevations in Laos, Vietnam, and China. You can stay in one of the treetop huts that are interconnected via zip lines, or trek across the terrains to observe the gibbons from under the canopy.
Banteay Srei, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Located in the area of Angkor in Cambodia, Banteay Srei is considered one of the most beautiful temples dedicated to Hindu god Shiva. Even the name is prepossessing: Banteay Srei means the “citadel of beauty.” Built in the tenth century, the temple was crafted of sandstones in shades of pink and showcased some of the finest stone carvings. Renowned for beautiful sculptures and intricate design in sweet pinkish hues, Banteay Srei is a must-visit place if you and your sweetheart love the works of art from the ancient past.
