Travelling as a couple is one of the most rewarding things you can do together. Sure, holidays with your partner can be romantic and see you laying on beaches for weeks on end, but what about the couples who love to have fun? There are plenty of destinations brimming with fun activities, excitement and wonder, just waiting to be discovered by lovers of adventure; here are four of the best.
Tokyo is great for couples because it’s pretty much a big kids playground. You can spend the day smacking home runs at the Oslo Batting Cage then pump up at the jam at Karaoke for two hours while they bring you beers and snacks and finish the day off at Robot Restaurant.
Tokyo is open all hours of the night too, so you can stay up late visiting bars in Golden Gai or playing arcade games with Japanese businessmen in suites. Head to Yoyogi Park on a Sunday for a picnic you’ll never forget then visit a Cat Cafe, Rabbit Cafe and all other manner of wonderful, themed restaurants. It’s the kind of city with something new and exciting around each corner and you’ll find yourself laughing the whole time.
2. Greek Islands
The Greek Islands are an ideal destination for couples for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s so beautiful you can’t help but feel really happy and grateful to be there, which sets you up for making the most of your time together and having a lot of fun.
The local bars and restaurants are amazing hosts to visitors and you can find yourself, quite literally, dancing on tables by the end of the night. If that’s a bit too wild, you can find a nice restaurant along the water and enjoy a seafood feast to end all feasts, complete with cocktails and fantastic bottles of wine. Spend days exploring the island on 4×4’s, lose hours to the beach, swimming in prefect brilliant blue water and discovering the beauty of the island. Stay up late, sleep in. Spoil yourself.
3. Wanaka and Queenstown
Both Wanaka and Queenstown are playgrounds for adults. If you love to have fun, either of these places in New Zealand’s south island, are the spot to visit. They’re great because there are so many adventure activities to get your heart pumping.
You can take a ride in the Shotover Jet, throw yourselves off the bungee, go for a scenic helicopter ride to a glacier, do loop-de-loops in a vintage Tiger Moth or go skeet shooting! The opportunities to have fun are endless.
Of course you also get to indulge in the incredible food and wine New Zealand has to offer too, from world class Pinto Noir to local produce bursting with flavour.
4. New York
New York is the kind of place you’ll want to visit over and over again, it’s just so fun. You can spend days just walking around New York, stopping in at boutique shops and farmers markets, wandering through Central Park and eating at amazing cafes and restaurants. There are loads of wonderful bars to choose from and the bartenders are always friendly and fun.
Visit famous spots like the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Centre and Times Square. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, discover hidden speakeasy’s and eat slices of pizza bigger than any you’ve seen before. New York is a city with so much hidden wonder, spending a few weeks exploring it with your partner is a dream come true and an adventure you’ll never forget.
