Top Ten places in the world to visit with your soulmate:-

7. France

Couples wreck the world atlas in search of a destination which would suit all their preferences but rarely come to a conclusion upon which place to go to. But, France is a place which would land in almost every couple’s shortlist, the reason being the presence of sea beaches, lofty mountains, an ideal climate for romance, world famous wine and food, and a renowned reputation for tourist satisfaction.

Hi travelers!!!! A country which lends its name to the most popular way of kissing is one of the best places to visit for a couple. Depending upon the duration of your stay you can visit romantic Paris, picturesque Cannes, or depending upon your mood simply rent out a personal chalet in Chamonix Mont Blanc (Haute-Savoie) offering a panoramic view of the Mont Blanc

Places to visit for a couple would also include Dijon (famous for its wine based spicy mustard), Colmar (in Alsace) & The Loire Valley which offer splendid wine and food apart from offering a beautiful view of the countryside. For art lovers the Louvre museum in Paris, the chateaux de versaille (a short train ride away from Paris) is some of the many options.
