6. Prague, Czech Republic
Our favourite city in Europe is also an amazing place to experience an affordable Valentine’s Day. With all the charms of Europe, but with more affordable local prices and a kinder exchange rate for Aussies, Prague is the perfect place to impress your Valentine’s date. Stroll hand in hand across the Charles Bridge and lock your love in place along the way on the many romantic sites where lovers come to worship along the bridge. Finish with a hand drawn portrait by the local artists dotted on the bridge and end with a hot cocoa enjoyed in the quaint laneways between Old Town Square and the bridge.

Enjoy a more adventurous experience in South Africa with a stay at one of their many exclusive luxury safaris and lodges. During the day, go on safari to spot the ‘big five’ then by night, enjoy world-class cuisine cooked by local chefs and experience the ultra luxurious “glamping” and lodge options. If safaris aren’t your thing, enjoy spa treatments in your lodge or head to Johannesburg to explore its hip and chic local neighbourhoods.
