Don’t forget to take with you a cool box stuffed with lots of snacks and drinks. Of course, take lots of photos of the trip.

Unleash the singer in you and belt out your favourite songs. Happily in love? Sing! Resentfully single? Sing! No matter how great or terrible of a singer your companion is, hitting the Karaoke bar will surely put a smile on your face this Valentine’s Day.
