Sometimes, love needs a little help. When you want to share a romantic time with someone, it’s important to find the right setting.
But what are the most romantic places? Cities have beautiful lights, romantic restaurants and cozy bars. But the beach has moonlight and the sound of the waves. Then again, in the mountains you can find some breathtaking views.

Mason recently went on his honeymoon. Hear him tell Devan about the romantic places he visited with his wife.

有时,爱情需要一点帮助。当你希望与某人共度浪漫时光时,找到一个正确的环境很重要。
但哪里才是最浪漫的地方呢?是由绚丽的灯光、浪漫的餐厅和舒适的酒吧点缀的城市?还是月光皎洁、波涛阵阵的海滩?或者是在连绵的群山之中,面对那令人赞叹的美景。
梅森最近刚刚度完蜜月。请听他如何向德凡描述他与妻子去过的浪漫之地。

Devan:  So where did you go for your honeymoon, Mason?

Mason:  We went to Europe. We were in London for a bit, and then we went to Croatia because we wanted a place that was a little more off the beaten path.

Devan:  Was it romantic?

Mason:  It was romantic because it was my honeymoon. I don’t know that they’re the most romantic places I’ve been.

Devan:  You wouldn’t say that Croatia, like, set the mood?

Mason:  Well, I definitely, when I think of romantic places, I think of the beach, you know, I like more rural, coastal kinda places rather than big cities. So it had some of that going for it.

Devan:  So you think that an island getaway is more romantic?

Mason:  Totally. And I think part of that is that, like, my ideas of romance in the city are really expensive. It’s like going out to really fancy dinners or fancy events, versus, you go to the beach, and it’s just gorgeous. You know?

Devan:  Yeah. You have a great view of the sunset and the ocean, so that makes sense.

Mason:  Yeah, I mean what are your romantic places?

Devan:  Well, I don’t have a boyfriend, so I don’t really know anything about romance.

For his honeymoon, Mason went to London and Croatia. He says it was a romantic trip. He and his wife found Croatia romantic because of the beaches.

Mason thinks that the beach is more romantic than the city. He says that romance in the city is too expensive. Going to fancy restaurants or events costs a lot of money. But cuddling on the beach is free.

Devan agrees that the beach is romantic, because you can watch the sunset and see the beautiful ocean views.

What kind of places do you think are the most romantic? What is the most romantic city in the world?

I would prefer to walk along the seashore, watching the sunset and listening the “music” of the waves with my beloved. 


The most romantic cith in the world is my city- Minsk. I suppose, Paris as well.

It is universally acknowledged that Paris is the most romantic place in the world and I think Venice too. But actually it depends on interests of people. As for me I think if you fall in love with each other than in every city, town or countryside  you will enjoy yourselves, but all the same it is important to find the proper place in the proper time and enjoy yourself :)

I think anywhere and anytime will be romantic place,just depend what you like and depend on your wallet,if you want romance at city,you have to think about your wallet,you can going to some cozy bars and some delicious resturant,also you can choice coffee house with sweet music,then you can talk with whisper and tell her/him you love.and can kneel in front of your friend for proposing,also you can choice trip to other city or some nice place ,such as beach ,mountain or travel place to spend your vacation with your girl or boy friend,you can enjoy the fresh air and the forest ,the sea and the waves and so forth,as for me ,if i have choice about the romantic place in city or other place,i ‘d prefer to choice go to other place ,at least escape city,i hate living in city actually,that’s because just so crowd,many many people here around u everyday ,and the air is not clear,and you know ,in city,you need to pay moeny even you want to rest room,but in country down,i can do everything what i want to do.

I do think I like a quiet places such as mountain or Island. I have not been everywhere but I love to be in a breathtaking city such as Vancouver which has a gorgeous view, and an cozy environment. Eventually,  I have a dream which is traveling every city in the world.

Most romantic place, for me, is definitely beach. Like casts said, you can see beautiful sunset holding your boyfriend/girlfriend`s hand, you can also hear the waves just in front of you, it`s just so romantic. Going mountain is also great idea especcially in summertime. I think most romantic city is Hawaii, even though I never been to there.

Definately France is the most romantic place in the world I think, however as jason says that kind of places are too expensive, I would prefer a nice dinner with my sweetheart very close to the beach to propose her marriage and for our honeymoon as well.

well, I think the most romantice place is where I had the first emotion of him. I mean, when I felt something weird from him, it’s like “love”, we were at a stream and he was trying to show me ducks and drakes. That moment when he threw up the stone, I saw him and lost my heart. Hie pose was really beautiful. I can never forget the moment and the place. So, I think the most romantic place is where you feel that you have strong feeling with someone.
