Are you a travelling romantic? Have a bucket list you share with your significant other? Perhaps you’ve just started planning the ultimate proposal, but you’re not too sure where you want to get down on one knee. Or maybe you’re looking for inspiration to make your proposal so unique it really sweets your partner of their feet.
Well, here are some of the best places in the world to propose, just don’t forget to look through unique engagement rings to take with you.
Canada – Prince Edward Island
There’s no doubt that lighthouses are a symbol of romance and love, and you’ll find them in abundance at Prince Edward Island. In fact, there are 33 lighthouses along this coastline, all varied in shape and size and even design. But they all have one important thing in common: they’re the most perfect, secluded spots to propose. Grab a picnic basket and blanket and pick a lighthouse to pop the question at. Howards Cove is particularly lovely. It sits on top of a hill, offering majestic views across the harbour, and sunset is simply magical.
Bolivia – Salar de Uyuni
This is the biggest salt flat in the world and one amazing sight to boot. The area compounds around 10 billion tonnes of salt, stretching a staggering 4,000 square miles. It’s a stunning white canvas interrupted only by blue skies and the distant mountains. What a spot to ask that important question.
Iceland – Thingvellir National Park
There aren’t that many places where you get to straddle two continents at the same time. Thingvellir National Park is one of them, and the most beautiful by far. It’s wild, Icelandic landscapes stretch on for miles over the divide, broken up by bridges, lakes and the odd scattering of trees. Grab your scuba gear and take the plunge into crystalline waters or, for the most memorable proposal ever, dive into the Silfra fissure, the very spot that divides the Eurasian and North American plates. You could signal the question under water or make up a sign – the choice is all yours.
USA – Grand Canyon
If you’re well and truly looking for the wow factor, you’ll find it at the Grand Canyon. See it from the air for an incredible perspective of this wonder of the world. A helicopter is really the way to go with this one. Your partner is sure to be so in awe of the undulating and jagged vistas that they won’t even see the ring coming. Have fun gliding in and out of the canyons and peaks and once your reach an awe-inspiring clearing, pop the question. Just make sure those headphones are working.
Thailand – Bangkok
Bangkok is all hustle and bustle, we know. So, it might not seem too romantic, but pay a visit during the Loi Krathong Festival, the country’s very own festival of lights, and your outlook is sure to be very different. Join in with thousands of couples spending the evening together, sending their own candle offering onto the water. And then, get down on one knee under the moonlight as ask that question.
These are just 5 amazing places to propose. Maybe you have a special holiday spot or a “must do” you’d like to add to the list?
