Sunset Peak

If you're both fan of nature or love hiking, there's no better way to propose than being surrounded by nature.

Bride's Pool

Get that sought-after yes at one of Hong Kong's picture-perfect waterfalls. Our top pick is Hong Kong's most famous pool, Bride's Pool, and despite its haunting legend, the views over the waterfall are magnificent. It's a little oasis secluded in the heart of the forest which makes for a perfect location to drop on your knees.

How to get there: On public holidays and Sundays, bus 275R takes you directly from Tai Po Market to Bride’s Pool. On weekdays and Saturdays, green minibus 20R travels between Tai Po Market Station and Ride’s Pool Road. Checking the minibus schedule is recommended as they don't run that frequently.

Cheung Sha Beach

The crystal-clear waters and sandy beaches of Hong Kong offer not only the perfect place to chill out but also to pop the question. Away from the gleaming skyscrapers, soak in the beauty of Hong Kong at Cheung Sha Beach, one of the city's most beautiful beaches. The peaks of Lantau Island as a backdrop will lure you in, perhaps even a great alternative to the exotic locations in Thailand or the Philippines now that travel's on hold.
