When making a proposal, there is a lot at stake. The only thing more difficult than choosing the right time is the right place to do it. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to propose. For a successful proposal, you’ll need to ensure that everything is perfect down to the last detail. The place you choose to propose can be the most important factor of all, and here’s why you should consider proposing in Thailand.
The Magic of Thailand
Proposing to your beloved is an indescribably precious moment and one that you will remember for the rest of your life. By choosing the right location, you can make that memory even sweeter, not to mention increasing the odds of getting an enthusiastic “yes.”
The most magical corner of the world awaits you and your beloved in Thailand. Nowhere on Earth offers such incredibly beautiful vistas. By bringing your fiancé-to-be to Thailand, you will find unforgettable experiences and make memories that will endure as long as your love.
Here’s what you need to know about Thailand’s most eligible locations, and why they’ll make the perfect spot to propose on Valentine’s Day.
Windmill Spot in Phuket
If you want to go for the gold this Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to propose at one of the most majestic and unique parts of Thailand, the Windmill spot in Phuket. This little known spot is a real gem hidden away from the throngs of tourists at neighboring Laem Promthep. Nestled in the southern reaches of Phuket between the Ya Nui and Nai Harn beaches, you will find an assortment of iconic windmills overlooking the water.
When you stand near one of the windmills, looking upon the water holding each other, you will see more than the beautiful view; you will see your lives together stretching across time. Taking their hand in yours, kneeling, and making the pitch of a lifetime, you will sense the love in their eyes and feel time stop as you both gaze out onto the water and see long tail boats and ships soaking up Adaman sea’s sunset
In proposing to your loved one, you are taking a journey that will run from Valentine’s Day in Thailand to eternity as you embark on the adventure of marriage.
If you’re looking for somewhere hidden away from the crowds and truly spectacular, take your loved one to Koh Chang when you propose to her on Valentine’s Day. There is a fisherman village called Salak Kok where the local villagers take guests out on gondolas through the mangrove forest. They also offer food and wine too, although they don’t sing to you like they do in Italy. You will also find a plethora of gorgeous stretches of white sand beaches that you can walk together until you build up the nerve to pop the question.
To the Thai people, Koh Chang is considered to be “Eden,” a veritable paradise that makes it the perfect place to profess your love this Valentine’s Day.
Treat Her Like Royalty, Take Her to Hua Hin – Cape Nidhra
Give your future fiancé the royal treatment and propose in Hua Hin at the Cape Nidhra hotel.
The Hua Hin area was once enjoyed by Thai royalty as a seaside retreat in the 1920s. Today it is a favorite among well-heeled expats with excellent taste as well as the Thai elite.
Hua Hin and Cape Nidhra Hotel is the perfect way to show how important your love is to you. Surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of this oceanside wonderland, she will be powerless to resist your proposal this Valentine’s Day.
Hot Air Balloon In Northern Thailand
For those adventure-seeking couples who enjoy a couple of thousand feet between themselves and the ground, hot air ballooning in northern Thailand might be another great option to propose. Your senses are heightened and the experience is exhilarating as you float across the lush northern landscape as you watch the sunrise over a sea of clouds. The ride will last about an hour but the memories will span a lifetime. Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and Nan are renowned for the experience and best flown in the morning and late afternoon (before sunset) for optimal proposal ambiance.
Bangkok, the City of Life
Secluded beaches and romantic windmills are great spots to propose on Valentine’s Day. However, if you’re looking for something a little more urban, you can’t beat Bangkok. As the nation’s capital city, Bangkok is a magnificent cultural center full of beautiful places to propose.
If it’s a gorgeous view you’re looking for, you can take a romantic cruise down the Chao Praya river. From the boat, you’ll see Bangkok in all its splendor, especially when you’re taking an evening cruise. The dazzling lights and beautiful temples will provide the perfect backdrop for your big moment.
On the other hand, if you’d rather propose in the heart of the city, you’ll want to snag a spot at the Amorosa Bar. From your romantic table for two, you’ll be able to see one of the most enviable views in Bangkok; the Wat Arun temple. After she says yes, you can enjoy the incomparably beautiful view overlooking the temple and the river.
If you’re looking to propose somewhere in the middle between the urban scene and the secluded countryside, you can get the best of both worlds when you visit the Lumpini Park. Nestled in the heart of the city, this 140-acre park offers privacy and beauty.
Mahanakorn tower is a new addition to the Bangkok skyline and has an epic view of the city. What’s better than rooftop dining, fancy drinks, and a killer view.
