8. Children at heart: Discovery Cove, Florida, United States

So for those who are kids at heart, head to the amusement park and relive those childhood days when love could be expressed through a candy heart.

The Discovery Cove in Orlando, Florida keeps the crowds thin with a limited admission (1,000 guests at a time) and no lines. Guests can frolic with dolphins, swim with tropical fish and snorkel near the park's very own coral reef.

For those who used to dream of living under the sea, the Grand Reef attraction offers a "SeaVenture" activity, where participants can interact with various sea creatures, including rays and starfish.

Private cabanas are available to rent.

Added bonus? Guests get tickets to SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica or Busch Gardens Tampa Bay with admission.

9. Literary lovers: Paris, France


For a novel take on romantic Paris, take a spin through Paris' literary hotspots.

The current Shakespeare and Company isn't the same bookstore that was owned by Sylvia Beach and frequented by Hemingway, but is now a bookstore/library that is a tribute to Sylvia Beach and opens its doors to struggling writers who can sleep there.

An eternal resting place for some of the world's most beloved authors, Pere Lachaise is the largest cemetery in Paris and is a great place to meander, even if you never find the graves of Balzac, Proust and Oscar Wilde.

For a slightly less morbid date spot, there's the Café de Flore, in the 6th arrondissement, which even has its own literary prize (Prix de Flore), or its rival, Les Deux Magots, in the Saint Germain-des-Prés, which also has a literary prize (Deux Magots).

Paris at night can be enjoyed at La Closerie de Lilas, Hemingway's preferred bar/cafe of choice, and the place where he wrote “The Sun Also Rises” or Harry's New York Bar, the birthplace of the Bloody Mary and the hot spot in the early 1900s for international visitors, including Sinclair Lewis.

10. Movie buffs: Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy

Many a film has been shot in Italy, from the obvious (“Roman Holiday”) to the less so (“Star Wars Episode 1” and “II”).

While “Roman Holiday” offers the most touristy options (the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain), there's always the option of renting a Mini and driving to the Lingotto, a shopping/conference complex in Turin ("The Italian Job"), which features a track on its roof.

Arezzo, a town in Tuscany, makes it easy to find movie hot spots, as the town clearly marks filming locations for "Life is Beautiful" via placards and signposts.

The Piazza Grande is the city's most famous medieval square, and can be found behind the church of Santa maria della Pieve. It's currently the site of the Joust of the Saracen, a medieval knights tournament that occurs in June and September.

Just a few miles south of Arezzo is Cortona, the setting for much of "Under the Tuscan Sun," which means expanses of countryside and Tuscan gardens.

When a town is this pretty, there’s not much more work to do to make the sparks fly.

Ever try Tanjung Rhu Resort or The Datai Langkawi? I simply enjoyed the looking there that was extremely magnificent, or if you looking for hip honeymoon, just go around KL to experience all the best of Malaysia here!
