Valentine's day special: Whisk your partner away on romantic retreat
On this Valentine’s Day Saturday, take your partner to a romantic destination and pop the question.
New Delhi: On this Valentine’s Day Saturday, take your partner to a romantic destination and pop the question.
“Destination weddings are extremely popular in some countries, especially with travellers from India, the UAE, Australia and Southeast Asia,” Joachim Holte, chief marketing officer of travel search site Wego, said in a statement.
“Before you get to the wedding day though, the memory of where and how a marriage proposal takes place is a story that will be retold through generations, so it’s worth putting in some effort to select a very special setting to make it as memorable as possible,” added Holte.
Here are some locations to pop the big question on Valentine’s Day:
* Head to Asia’s gaming and entertainment capital in Macau, just an hour from Hong Kong by ferry, and take a Skywalk around the outside of the Macau Tower. Have the team from AJ Hackett who run the walk and bungee jump, to hold up a big ‘Marry Me’ sign from inside as you take in the views from 233 metres above the city.
* If you love the water go to Kuala Lumpur’s Aquaria at the KLCC. The aquarium offers several proposal packages. Have a diver hold a ‘Marry Me’ sign from inside the tank among the dazzling fish or dive in and do it yourself while you both take a dive.
* Built in the name of love, the splendour of the Taj Mahal in Agra epitomises romance. If you are in the capital, it will take you just a few hours to reach the city on the special day.
* Channel the romance of the Arabian Nights and venture on a desert camel safari from Dubai with Platinum Heritage Tours. Pop the question by the glimmer of a soft antique lamp while your personal butler serves your freshly cooked meal, prepared on site.
