LONDON, February 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
If you didn't have the ideal night on Thursday fear not! Recapture the romance of Valentine's Day with a trip to one of these great locations. The sheer number of affordable package holidays and city break deals means that it's easier than ever to get away for the weekend.
New romance - New York
Mirroring the magic of a blossoming relationship, New York has to be one of the most exciting cities in the world.
From carriage rides through Central Park to the unforgettable view at the top of the Empire State Building, the 'Big Apple' is bursting with romantic sites to explore with that special someone.
The city's home to plenty of superb restaurants so finding a cosy corner for that Valentine's Day dinner won't be hard. There's also a chance to relive some memorable movie moments in Manhattan or take a scenic cruise on the Staten Island Ferry.
Bring back the spark - Egypt
Egypt holidays are perfect for an underwater adventure that's bound to inject a new lease of life into a relationship. The reefs around Sharm El Sheikh are teeming with amazing sea creatures and the local dive centres provide affordable trips for beginners and experts alike. Temperatures still reach 20C in February so there's also a chance to soak up some winter sun.
Pop the question - Paris
Only an hour and a half flight from the UK, 'The City of Light' is perfect for those who want to make the most of a full weekend away. It may seem like a clichéd destination but Paris is witness to so many proposals for a reason. Breath-taking architecture, amazing food and countless galleries and museums all contribute to an absolutely inspiring city break.
Perfect for pampering - Turkey
For those who want to relax and unwind for Valentine's Day, Turkey holidays top the list for indulgence. There's a host of low-key locations and beautiful boutique hotels that won't break the bank. Spoil yourselves at one of the traditional 'hammam' baths in Istanbul or mark the occasion with a once-in-a-lifetime sunset paragliding trip over Olu Deniz.
Thrills and spills - Ski France
The ski season is still in full swing for those couples who like to explore the pistes together. There's nothing like jaw-dropping snowy scenery to act as a backdrop for romance and lots of the big tour companies like Thomas Cook offer 3-day ski breaks at outstanding prices.
A lovely 3-Star hotel stay in the heart of the Three Valleys (Alps) can cost as little as £200.
