Quirky, Unusual, Fine Dining

Northern Lights

For the ultimate ‘start-as-you-mean-to-go-on’ moment, try popping the question beneath the Aurora Borealis. It will be cold, but the neon colours spinning above you will make it all worth it. Some of the best spots to view the Northern Lights include Iceland, Finland and Norway, and you’ll have a multitude of venue options from outside in nature, to a cosy igloo or even an indoor hot tub.

Hawaii, USA

Before you tell us this is cliche, we are talking about taking the Hawaii proposal to the next level by presenting your promise of everlasting love from a canoe. Take your significant other out on the water in complete privacy and ask for their hand while the waves rock you both into the first step of your future.

Bali, Indonesia

If you love the water, take it a step further and propose while snorkelling or scuba diving! Bali is an incredible place to do this because the underwater flora and fauna can’t be beat and the water temperature is beautifully pleasant. You might not want to take the actual ring below the waves with you though, so maybe have a spare one made and keep the real deal waiting with bathrobes and champagne back at the hotel.

Santorini, Greece

The most romantic of the Greek islands, the breathtaking hills of Santorini are an ideal proposal spot. Famous for its sunsets, your best bet is definitely to coincide your big ask with the sun’s nightly farewell. The photos will be to die for.

Cappadocia, Turkey

If the seaside is not really your thing, what about the clouds instead? Pop the question soon after sunrise floating in a hot air balloon over Cappadocia and you will guarantee a day to never be forgotten.

Marrakech, Morocco

For travel buffs, Marrakech is an ideal proposal spot. The food is delicious and the vibe is warm and loving everywhere you go. Start the day exploring the souk and checking out the snake charmers in the main square. Then treat your partner to an afternoon at the spa and let the night be your time you get your ‘yes’.

New Taipei City, Taiwan

Let the flower of your relationship blossom with a proposal at the Taiwan Lantern Festival. Just as the lanterns are meant to celebrate the coming of the spring harvest, so too can they symbolise the beginning of your new life with your partner. Write your wish for your future together on a lantern and watch it soar into the sky.

Paris, France

Yes it’s overdone, but there’s a reason for it. Paris is probably the most romantic city in the world, so you really can’t go wrong proposing there.
