With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, asking your loved one that special question is always a magical moment – so are you thinking of asking it this year? If you’re looking at whisking that person away somewhere different then here are a few romantic destinations to give you some ideas…
Santorini is famous for being one of the most romantic islands in the world. For those that appreciate natural beauty, you will be sure to have your breath took away with the Greek island’s white and blue-domed churches, beautiful clifftop towns and legendary sunsets over the turquoise sea. This romantic island will mean your other half simply cannot say no! Santorini is also a very popular place for weddings to so if you can return here for your big day too!
Whilst it might not be the most original of ideas, it’s hard to beat a Paris engagement. I know you’re all thinking about the Eiffel tower, but it isn’t your only option whilst in this beautiful city. If it’s summer time then why not head over to Jardin Du Palais Royal; an exquisite place tucked away behind the Louvre, this secret Parisian paradise has magnolia trees that blossom in the spring and rose bushes that bloom during the summer. Or how about proposing on one of the most beautiful bridges in Paris, Pont Alexandre III? Early evenings are picture perfect moments to propose here. However if you want to keep to famous land marks nearby, how about proposing on top of the Arc De Triomphe? The views are a great alternative to the Eiffel Tower and they are stunning in any season!
- Grand Canyon
If you’re more of an adventurous couple, then why not go for a romantic trip to the Grand Canyon? The beauty of this National Park is breath taking! Just imagine proposing to that special someone at one of the seven wonders of the natural world. You could even have a helicopter tour and pop the question then! Or how about walking out onto the skywalk then popping down on one knee with magnificent views surrounding you?
- Khao Lak
If you want to be in quiet scenery, then you’ll have no problem on a stretch of Thailand’s amazing coastline. You will have no problem finding a quiet beach to declare your love to one another and finally pop that all important question. As the sun sets, enjoy the beautiful views of the turquoise sea whilst relaxing on the luscious sand.
Are you an old fashioned lover? If so, take your loved one on a mesmerising gondola trip to catch the beautiful scenes of waterways, old schooled villages and market squares. If you want to be blown away with old fashioned romance, then Venice is going to be on your list of possible destinations!
- Niagara Falls
There’s just something about this waterfall that leaves us all simply lost for breath! Whether it is the inspiring size or the exotic aura it transmits, no one comes away from this natural beauty feeling a moment of regret. Waterfalls are most definitely a romantic location so what a better place to propose at one of the most famous ones on Earth!
Want something a little different? Then why not propose under the illuminations of the Northern Lights! Proposing under these colour storms is unquestionably one of the most romantic things you could do. How about booking a reindeer or a husky ride to add to the romance?
- Disneyland or Disney World
Many girls have always dreamed of becoming a princess, and from a young age have started planning their fairy-tale wedding! Why not make it come true? There is no other place in the world better than the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’ to make that dream come true. Why not push to boat out and make that special someone’s childhood dreams become a reality?
