Valentine's Day is less than two weeks away, and for many of us that means either going out with friends, or spending a romantic evening with our partner. For those (hopefully) lucky few however Valentine's is a day that they have long been preparing for, and are now awaiting with almost-maddening trepidation.
We know that real life has all sorts of constraints, but we asked ourselves if we had unlimited funds and could go anywhere, 'where would the 7 most romantic places to propose on Valentine's Day be?'. This is what we came up with.
#7 Al-Dawaar Revolving Restaurant – Dubai, UAE
With food from all around the world at your finger tips, you and your loved one can enjoy a romantic Valentine's day meal and a couple of drinks, before the time comes to get down on one knee.
#6 Bandhavgarh National Park – Umaria, India
There are 12 idyllic cottages that visitors are able to stay in, and considering it is pretty much hidden away in the jungle, there are plenty of perfect potential places to propose.
#5 St Michael’s Mount – Cornwall, UK
Surrounded by sea, sand, tropical gardens and awe-inspiring historic architecture, there is plenty for couples to do and countless perfect places to pop the question.
#4 Wiener Riesenrad – Vienna, Austria
Located just outside an amusement park, the view from the Ferris wheel's apex is breathtaking, making it a perfect place to propose on Valentine's Day.
#3 Petra tou Romiou – Kouklia, Cyprus
Though you have likely never heard of it, the Petra tou Romiou is a site so endowed with natural beauty that legend says it is the site on which the Goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born and walked out of the sea.
#2 Pont de l'Archevêché– Paris, France
This bridge is covered in 'love padlocks', placed there by couples who have stood upon it and symbolised the strength of their love for each other by fixing the locks to it.
1# Kyoto – Honshu, Japan
Though our Valentine's Day proposal list has not been put in any particular order, if it were we think Kyoto would still find itself at number one.Kyoto was once the capital of Japan and is home to 17 UNESCO world heritage sites, 1600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto Shrines. In our mind this is the most romantic place anyone could propose on Valentine's Day.
