Because your love for travel has always been a common interest, you should make it a point to propose your lady in a natural setting that blows her mind. For me, romance has always been about sharing a place together. (PC feature image: Harald Six)
Here are unusual, scintillating settings that are off the beaten track:
- Son Doong Caves, Vietnam
Son Doong Cave is in the heart of the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park. Home to a virgin jungle of its own that grows 600 feet beneath the surface of the earth, there’s a portion that allows sunlight to pass through. The setting by itself is so adventurous that two souls who are by themselves a travel couple will find it alluring to say the least. Misty clouds envelope the forest and massive stalagmites rise from the ground. Woahh!!
- Uluru, Australia

Pop the question against the iconic Ayers and a setting sun. Vivid with orange and red, it is indeed a sigh to behold.
There’s artist Munro’s Field of Light installation, making the area all the more breathtaking. Lighting up with nearly 50,000 solar bulbs, Munro says “There’s something poetic about it. It goes on and off, and this skin of luminescence allows us to see the world around us – a mysterious energy – one thing you can’t grasp.”
- Waitomo Glow Worm Caves, New Zealand
The glow worm, unique to NZ, lights up the caves. A marvel, nature’s light shines as you glide beneath along the Waitomo river. A serene ambiance takes over and she will be ready to light your life with a yes.
- Machu Pichu, Peru
If you two are history buffs, Machu Pichu is the place for you. Set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley, Machu Pichu is one of the world’s most famous ruins.
- Kuredu, Maldives
Bioluminescent planktons. You. Her. Magic. Need we say more?

Two hours from Salzburg is one of Austria’s best towns. Fairy-tale-like, it is set against the Alps, and actually has an iron age dedicated to it. Walkable in a couple of hours, set your proposal against the beautiful lake.
- Soca Valley, Slovenia
A paradise for water sports lovers, this one is perfect if you two are thorough water or adventure junkies. The beautiful Soca river flows at the foot of the Julian Alps and has carved a valley with most gorgeous waters in Europe. Think Kayaking, canoeing, rafting and a horde of other activities.
