How to have the perfect romantic date around the globe

Travel and adventure simply nourish romance. So whether you’re single or attached, let the sparks fly as you visit these iconic cities across the globe boasting some of the most romantic atmospheres and experiences.

New York: Museum Dates and “Cheesy” Romance

Art is an expression of the human heart; for a walkable city so densely packed with museums, it’s brimming with experiences that are sure to get your heart racing. Take your partner on a classic museum date at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and continue your stroll onwards to keep the conversation flowing: The High Line and Hudson Yards, the Brooklyn Bridge or even a quick weave through Central Park will always be memorable. Don’t forget to share a bite along the way — a cheesy, simple New York slice of pizza is sure to put a smile on their face.

Stop by: Prior to your flight, grab a memento of your trip at DFS, New York John F. Kennedy International Airport.


Guam: A Sun-Drenched Escape

There are glamorous island getaways dotted all over the globe, but for an intimate hideaway that’s equally filled with adventure, Guam ticks all the boxes. Chase waterfalls and enjoy a dip trekking up to Tarzan Falls; enjoy a sunny day out on the water sea kayaking, snorkeling, or simply swimming along Tumon Bay’s long stretches of white sand; and lock in your love (literally — with lock and key) at Two Lovers Point, known for its fantastic sunsets.

Stop by: For a sweet treat that will uplift the spirit, head to T Galleria by DFS, Guam for unique, made-in-Guam specialty chocolates.


Hong Kong: Wining and Dining Among the City Lights

A financial metropolis boasting one of the world’s highest number of Michelin stars per capita, Hong Kong is a prime location for a swanky dinner date. Impress your partner amongst the city lights at rooftop bars like Cardinal Point at Central’s multi-venue space Forty-Five; a three-Michelin-starred meal at modern Korean fine-dine Mosu atop the M+ museum; or perhaps an intimate candlelit dinner at the historic Peak Lookout, followed by a romantic stroll along the effortless Peak Circle Walk to see the nighttime skyline.

Stop by: For a last minute gift, stop at T Galleria by DFS, Hong Kong on Canton Road for luxury and artisanal fragrance brands.


Los Angeles: A Rom-Com Come to Life

For Hollywood-style romance, book your getaway car in Los Angeles and get cruising. Make like Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling with a tête-à-tête at the Griffith Observatory; win a carnival prize for your beau at Santa Monica Pier, or catch a film under the palm trees — whether at one of the many classic drive-in theatres in the city, or with Cinespia’s outdoor screenings at iconic locations like The Hollywood Forever Cemetery or Los Angeles State Historic Park.

Stop by: Inspired by all those movie-star looks? Pick up something new for your beauty arsenal at DFS, Los Angeles International Airport.

Auckland: Together Under the Stars

For adrenaline-loving couples, Auckland is the perfect a jumping off point for adventure — literally. After all, the City of Sail’s biggest claims to fame are activities such as bridge climbing and bungee jumping, both sure to be once-in-a-lifetime bonding experiences. For those with slightly less gall, an intimate pod-hopping tour with your beloved might just be the ticket. Make Auckland your springboard to a nature tour of New Zealand’s South Island, trekking through the wild by day while staying overnight at glass-ceilinged luxury pods — sleeping under the stars in isolated bliss.

Stop by: Whether for last-minute travel exclusive amenities or a luxury treat after your adventure, head to T Galleria by DFS, Auckland for a shopping spree you’ve truly earned.
