Bruges is a step back in time, almost perfectly preserved in its glorious medieval architecture. Cobbled streets lead to picturesque market squares with historic churches, all framed by exquisite canals. 360-degree views of the city are enjoyed for those brave enough to climb the 366 stairs up the UNESCO protected Belfort tower. And romance is undeniably in the air, with its very own Lake of Love providing the perfect spot to get down on one knee. Legend has it that if you cross the bridge over the lake and kiss your loved one there, your love will last forever, making it one of Europe’s most popular places to get engaged. Bring a picnic and don’t forget the Champagne!

Tucked away in North Malè in the beautiful Maldives lies the Huvafen Fushi island, a luxury paradise unlike anything you have ever experienced. Undeniably one of the most romantic places in the world to propose, the Maldives’ position in the middle of the ocean also lends it to yacht charter vacations, allowing you to explore its 1,2000 other white-sand islets. Whether you pop the question while cosied up at your over-the-water bungalow, snorkelling in the bath like, crystal clear waters, or dining under the stars, one thing’s for sure – your lucky partner is bound to say yes.

Of all the beautiful places to get engaged, a game reserve may not be top of your list. However, Sabi Sands in South Africa is so much more than just a safari park – in fact, with its beautifully-decked-out lodges offering complete privacy, up-close-and-personal experiences with the big cats that prowl through this glorious habitat, and ethereal stargazing opportunities, it has everything you could desire from a romantic proposal spot. This unique holiday in the wild is something you’ll remember and treasure forever.

Have you ever seen such an incredible natural phenomenon? Don’t be intimidated by the name, referring to El Mosquito, a small ship owned by a local pirate which was often hidden in the bay, rather than the pesky insects. Magic will be in the air as you get down on one knee in front of this sparkling display. As the largest bioluminescent bay this planet has to offer, it’s easy to see why it is the most romantic places in the world to propose. Be sure to go at night and ideally within a New Moon phase, when the moonlight is dim leaving this natural sensation to glow.

Quebec City really has it all; not only is it a joy to behold, with its picture-postcard views of the St Lawrence River and its old stone buildings, it also has an incredible cultural scene, not to mention the romance levels are upped by the official language being French. Go in winter, where snowfall will only add to the city’s charms, and stay at the Ice Hotel. Built using 500 tons of ice and 40,000 tons of snow, this is an architectural masterpiece and the ultimate opportunity to cuddle up close. Celebrate your partner saying yes with a signature cocktail served in an ice glass – of all the places to get engaged, this one lends itself best to a Christmas proposal.

If you are planning to ask your loved one to marry you, we hope this list of the most romantic places in the world to propose has inspired you to go the extra mile.
