Instagram posts have become the postcards of the new generation. While love is celebrated every day, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to getaway and make postcard-worthy memories with your significant other.

Whether you are starry-eyed romantics, pop-culture savvy, more on the adventure-seeking side, or a couple with a taste for the finer things in life, Agoda, shares a few ideas for the perfect spot where you can spend your February 14, or be romantic anytime!

For those who appreciate being one with nature

A night or two in the Sahara Desert is definitely an exciting new experience that offers a more intimate and Instagrammable setting for those who seek it. Try riding a camel in the day, and spend the night cozying up in front of a roaring fire under a canopy of stars. Golden Camp in Merzouga, Morocco lets you enjoy all that without foregoing the luxuries of modern living.

For the adventurous couple

If the South American peninsula is more your cup of tea, Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa on the edge of the Chilean National Park of Torres del Paine is a great option. Excursion packages from the hotel let you explore the wilderness on foot, on horseback, riding a bike, or even kayaking.

After an adventure-packed day, you can retire to your quarters which features unobstructed panoramas of  Lake Sarmiento and the Torre del Paine mountain range. Yes. Even your downtime snaps will warrant separate Instagram posts for sure.

For Pinoy movie buffs

A major plot point of one of the biggest Filipino rom-coms, may have the female lead unwittingly ending up in the mountains of Sagada on the quest to find closure from her failed relationship, but by the end of the film—as fate would have it—she not only found herself but also love in the process.

Now, instead of heading to Kiltepan Peak to find love like they did in the film, you and bae can rekindle your love and float on cloud nine at the nearby Marlboro Country. Be sure to get a full night’s rest at the cozy Coffee Heritage House & Hostel, while you wait for the perfect shot of that majestic sunrise above a sea of clouds.

For winter-loving couples

Snowy-white landscapes are classic romantic backdrops. For that perfect picture, capture your passionate snow fights on camera or fun moments learning to ski as a couple at one of the resorts near Sapporo, Japan. After a day of adventure, relax in your very own private onsen at Shikotsuko Daiichi Hotel Suizantei.

For the vino connoisseurs

Are you a couple with a discerning palate for vintages? Then a weekend at the Castello di Casole luxury resort in Tuscany ought to satisfy your thirst for quality Cabernet, Sangiovese, and Petit Verdot varietals as they have their own vineyard along the Tuscan countryside.

If you’re looking to pop the big question, consider their special proposal package which gets you in touch with a storied Florentine jeweler for a custom engagement ring. In the unfortunate case that you don’t get that sweet yes… well, they have a Ferrari that you can take out for a spin as consolation, which is also somewhat perfect for the ‘Gram.
