Taipei may not be known as the city of love, but there are plenty of romantic places and experiences perfect for popping the question to that special gal. Whether you’re a thrill seeker or hopeless romantic, one of these five places to propose is bound to be right for you.

Taipei 101 Observatory
Again, its not the Eiffel Tower, but proposing on the top of the world’s second highest structure overlooking the twinkling lights of the city below is pretty darn romantic. The Taipei 101 also has the fastest elevator, so you can make a quick escape should she say no (don’t worry, she won’t!).
Miramar Ferris Wheel
The 300 foot tall Ferris wheel at the Miramar Entertainment Complex makes for a leisurely ride with amazing views, especially at night. Wait until you get to the top before getting down on one knee.
Wulai Cable Car
Plan a romantic weekend getaway to Wulai village for plenty of alone time relaxing in the hot springs and hiking the nearby trails. When you’re ready, take her on the Wulai cable car and propose overlooking the waterfall below.
Beitou Hot Springs
Splurge for the special occasion on a room with your own personal hot springs at Villa 32 or another Beitou-area hotel. Your proposal will be a tender, private moment you’ll remember long after you leave Taipei.
Yangmingshan National Park
Instead of giving her flowers when you propose, head down a trail in Yangmingshan National Park with a picnic lunch during flower season and bring her to the flowers. Take a few hikes on your own ahead of time to scope out possible places to get down on one knee.
