It can be a lot of pressure since everyone wishes to propose and be proposed just like in the movies, so you definitely want your partner to give you a resounding yes and maybe cried a little for your effort. Read the following list that has we put together to get that enthusiastic “I do!” from your spouse-to-be.

1.Koh Rong Island, Cambodia 

Wedding proposal should be as impressive as your wedding reception. Make your unsuspecting bride-to-be gasp when you pop the question at the pristine beach of Koh Rong Island. The island is a sight to behold day and night. You may get down in one knee during the beautiful sunset or when the moon is out and the beach glows! Since the island is being well taken care of, it creates a perfect environment for bioluminescent planktons to glow, creating an excellent setting for a memorable romantic gesture. Do plan your proposal between November and May to get the best view of the cloudless sky.

2.Koh Lipe, Thailand

Doesn’t matter if your partner love celebrity-like-proposal or a simple one, proposal by the beach remains a classic. Surprise her with a ring at a weekend beach getaway, and your grandchildren are going to remember you as the most passionate granddad! Koh Lipe consists of four beaches: Sunrise, Sunset, Karma and Pattaya. All of them could even rival the Maldives with their crystal blue waters! Karma beach, located at the north side of the island, have lesser travelers, so head to this spot if you want privacy to slip the ring on your partner’s finger!

4.Singapore Flyer

Pop the question while having the 165-metre tall giant Ferris wheel called Singapore Flyer – including Raffles Place, Esplanade, The Hellix Bridge and Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort – as your stunning backdrop! This landmark is located close to Marina Bay and the Gardens by the Bay. Don’t worry, the beautiful landmarks are sure to dazzle at night but they would never overshadow the ring you will put on her.

5.El Nido, Philippine

Get blessing from Mother Earth by popping the question at the well preserved El Nido Island! The crown jewel of the Philippines is declared as a conservation area and national park to maintain its biodiversity. This island possesses unique flora and fauna that are protected by a law that travellers should abide. This gem is known as the capital of scuba diving since the waters here burst with marine lives. As tempting as they look, travellers are advised not to touch the colourful corals since they are fragile. The powdery sand and turquoise sea make for the ideal scenery when you ask for her hand.

6.Halong Bay, Vietnam

For a totally out of this world wedding proposal, consider firing the question over a candle light dinner in a cave at Halong Bay. Once you are there, you would definitely be blown away by the scenery, which feels like out of a movie scene! Thien Canh Son cave was formed over millions of years ago and some of the walls resemble baby elephant and flowers. Many cruise companies provide the extraordinary dining experience, but we recommend Paloma Cruise. The light from candles reflect onto the cave’s sparkling walls, radiating the entire space!

7.Bagan, Myammar

The countryside of Bagan is filled with Buddhist and Hindu temples, which are bathed in orange hues as the sun rises. The experience of watching sunrise at 2,000 feet in the air is totally different compared to watching it from the ground. Oriental Ballooning offers the stunning view from a flying hot air balloon, which makes for a mesmerising set up to pop the question! Plan your surprise from October to April for a smoother flight. The package includes pick up and drop off at your hotel, breakfast before flight and light snacks after landing. Sunrise is between 6:00 a.m. and 6.45 a.m., so be sure to wake up early. Don’t be too anxious and drop your ring mid-flight! Stay cool, and remember to practice what you want to say to her before taking the flight.
