Valentine's Day is around the corner and most of you lovebirds would have made your plans to spend it in your own unique ways from dawn to dusk. Waking up in the arms of your love can't be bettered in any way but here are some places we think you would love to wake up in (in the company of your beloved of course)!
Such is the romance of this place, that it prompted the immortal bard, Rabindranath Tagore to set his 'Shesher Kobita' in Shillong. Wake up to the sight of pine trees dancing with the wind and the occassional light drizzle to cozy up to with your loved one. A plate of hot steaming momos or maybe a cup of coffee can add to ambience as you stroll through the town at your own pace.

Dibru Saikhowa national park, Assam
Far away from the hustle and bustle of tourist infested places, what better way to wake up than on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra, take a boat ride to sight the elusive river dolphins or simply laze on a sand bank and watch time glide by you.

Mandu, Madhya Pradesh
Wake up in Mandu or Mandavgarh known as the land of happiness but be warned that a tinge of sadness might overshadow you as you perhaps listen to the legendary love story of Roopmati and Baz Bahadur. Visit Hoshang Shah's tomb , the first marble structure in India and the inspiration for Taj Mahal. Witness the sun set over the Narmada from within the ancient palace and feel the timelessness of love.
