Number Four: The Tunnel of Love – Ukraine. Ukraine’s Tunnel of Love has become one of the most romantic destinations for couples who want to celebrate their love.

Number Three: Lake Rotorua – New Zealand. New Zealand is home to Lake Rotorua, which covers an impressive 79.8 square kilometers. The beautiful and ethereal lake was formed from the crater of a large volcano.
