Royal Jaisalmer is best visited in February, not because the weather is apt for travel but also because February is the month when you can experience the exciting spectacle of various festivals. The major attractions of the Desert Festival of Jaisalmer include snake charmers, puppeteers, acrobats, folk performers, turban tying competition and a display of the most glorious moustaches.

A fantastic meal isn’t just the way to her heart, but in a crowded city like Delhi, it almost is! Marut Sikka’s fairyland like restaurant, in the aptly named Garden of 5 Senses in Mehrauli, is enough to seal the deal. And if the extensive wine list isn’t enough to get her to love you, then the big eye tuna with avocado tapenade and sublimely creamy crème brûlée at Le Cirque, will do the trick. If you wish to steal a kiss in a quieter place, you visit the various lush green gardens of Delhi. Lodhi Garden, Rose Garden, Deer Park and Buddha Garden look most beautiful in the winter weather in Delhi. Rain in Delhi on Valentine’s Day this year, will further add to the beauty of the lush green environment.
