Epic Places to Pop the Question

Aug 22,2017

Proposing is one of the most nerve-wracking moments of your life. Take some of the stress out of the planning by choosing somewhere truly epic to pop the question – these incredible destinations will do most of the hard work for you.

  
Petra, Jordan

Known as the “Lost City”, Petra was lost to the Western world for hundreds of years. This ancient city, which is made up of canyons and mountains, becomes truly magical in the night-time. Hundreds of candles light up the gorge known as the Siq. As you travel through this canyon, it leads to the most impressive finale – the Treasury building. The Treasury is carved directly into the red sandstone cliffs and there are hundreds more candles at its entrance giving off a warm glow.

Chateau de Chenonceau, France

Chateau

Is there anything more epic than a castle? Just two hours outside of Paris, Chateau de Chenonceau is perfect for a Parisian proposal. There are several gardens to wander through before you pop the question, with green lawns lined with pretty plants and flowers. There’s also a tiny but pristine Italian maze for you and your partner to meet in the middle of. The 16th-century chateau itself is the main contender of this sublime location – steeped in history and style both on the outside and the inside.

The Andaman Sea, Thailand

Andaman Coast

Why settle for one place to propose when you can have a few? The Andaman coastline is dotted with so many beaches and islands and is one of the most beautiful shorelines of the country. If you’re thinking of asking the big question in winter, the Andaman coast will be ideal for a post-December break as monsoon season starts in May and ends in October. Located in southern Thailand, you’ll be surrounded by tropical forests and crystal-clear waters. After your proposal, the relaxing spa in the Millennium Resort Patong Phuket will be waiting for you.

Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

If you think of yourselves as city dwellers, heading to Hong Kong would be a fantastic option. Thought of as one of the most romantic spots in Hong Kong, Victoria Peak – also known as Mount Austin and The Peak – provides beautiful views of the whole city as it’s the highest point in Hong Kong. The journey going up to the peak is an adventure in itself, as you take in the skyscrapers that come into view through the tram window. Careful, you might ask them before you make it to the top.

Trevi Fountain, Rome

You’ll find the Trevi Fountain in the Quirinale district of Rome. The largest Baroque fountain in the city, it holds a tradition that any visitors who throw a coin into the fountain will be ensured return trip to Rome – which could mean you’ve got your potential honeymoon idea primed and ready.  Built out of travertine stone and incredibly detailed, the fountain is big and beautiful. It’s not a sight either of you will forget. Afterwards, celebrate with a glass of fizz in the lavish bar of the Grand Hotel Palace Rome.
