Asia is a very large part of the world and there are many incredible places to visit. On this page, and in no particular order, Dillon Michaelson outlines a few of the places he considers part of the top romantic getaways in Asia.
Best 9 Romantic Getaways In Asia
1. Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a very exciting city and a world renowned cultural center. There is something to see and do for everyone. Plenty of entertainment, shopping, and restaurants. The city is also surrounded by natural beauty and you can visit historic sites, beautiful beaches, or Victoria Peak, which is one of the most popular stops for tourists visiting the area. One of my favorite things to do in Hong Kong, was to get on a 100-year-old tram that takes you up a scenic path. As you reach the peak you get incredible views of the city. It is one of the best destination for romantic getaways!

2. Kyoto, Japan
Kyoto has been the capital of Japan for more than 1000 years and is a place that is rich in culture and history. There are over 1600 Buddhist temples and over 400 Shinto shrines in Kyoto. My wife and I enjoyed the beautiful gardens and incredible works of art throughout the city. If you are visiting Japan, Kyoto should be on your list of places to see and is one of the most peaceful destinations for romantic getaways.

3. Bali, Indonesia
Bali is considered to be one of the most romantic places in the world. There are pristine sandy beaches, deep blue waters, volcanoes, and when you move inland there are lush jungles where you can see Buddhist temples and ancient ruins. My wife and I are adventurous and really enjoy scuba diving. The beach at Nusa Penida is one of our favourites. It’s a great place for anyone who enjoys snorkeling or diving because there is beautifully coloured coral just offshore. Another great activity for the adventurous couple is rafting or kayaking down the Ayung River. And for those of you who like to shop, there are street markets where you can buy local arts and crafts. It is one of the best destination for romantic getaways for couples looking for thrilling adventures!

4. Phuket, Thailand
Thailand is made up of many islands, and Phuket is the largest of these. Located in the southern part of Thailand in the Andaman Sea, Phuket is known by many as “The Pearl of Andaman Sea”. Phuket has an abundance of pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters. The hotels in Phuket are well known for their hospitality and I’ve found that hotel staff is always happy to help you find things to do whether it’s finding the best, romantic beaches to visit, directing you towards ancient temples, or telling you the best spots to enjoy nightlife.

Singapore is relatively small, but there is an almost endless amount of things to see and do. There are museums and art galleries for art lovers, and heritage centers for history buffs. Singapore also has a vibrant nightlife for those who enjoy good music, food and dancing.
One of my favorite places to visit in Singapore is Bay South, which boasts a large, waterfront garden with “Supertrees”, which are vertical gardens that measure up to 16 stories high. There are walkways between the Supertrees and there is also a bar on top of the tallest Supertree which offers incredible views of the gardens. In addition to being beautiful to look at, the Supertrees also serves a functional purpose, collecting rainwater, generating solar power, and acting as venting ducts for the conservatories at the park.
