Just launched - Romantic Holiday Destinations

Romance is a huge part of the travel market and has become a word that in many ways is synonymous with travel. Extending far beyond its original meaning,  romantic holidays means something about the place, the experience and the ambiance. 

Paris is Romance because its aura is Romance:  The landscapes, the Champs Elysees, the French Chateau, the Louvre, they even sound romantic. 

So to is the Kasbah in Tangiers, a romantic place. The sounds evokes  the odor of ripe dates, olives in the market, palm trees in Hotel El Minzah courtyard, rich dark roast Arabian coffee, mint tea and the sea breeze fresh off the ocean. It is steeped in history and mystery, a romantic mystery conjuring up images of the exotic and the unknown. 

Romance is all of this:  Adventure, mystery, luxury, exotic, wild, peaceful, tempting, dangerous, exciting, a hideaway and an escape. Romance is a state of mind and an expectation. Romantic holiday are now family affairs. Holidays to romantic places are as appealing to families, singles, groups, and business as they are to couples and honeymooners..

As holiday makers strive to live the experience,  to seek mystery, the exotic and the place, we as marketers are re-defined our tourism product.
