7 Best Romantic Places to Propose Marriage in Taipei, Taiwan

#1 Under the Sakura Tree at Yangmingshan National Park

Spring season is near. As a girl, one of the best moments to receive a proposal is under the Cherry Blossom tree. But I was traveling solo, so witnessing it by myself is fine. But as a couple, going to Yangmingshan National Park to see the cherry blossoms is the perfect gateway to pop up the question.

#2 Highest Point of Taipei 101 at Night

My friend from Japan traveled to Taiwan to see me on my birthday. We went to Taipei 101 on the 89th floor as a birthday gift. As I was having a nice overlooking view from above of Taipei, I just imagined that Taipei 101 is one of the best romantic places to propose marriage in Taipei. There are several people but you can find a good place where you can secretly pop up the question. Or maybe, ask help from the staff if you have the time. If not, just surprise her.

#3 Hiking at Elephant Mountain

Elephant Mountain is one of the most popular hiking spots in Taipei. It’s the first destination I went to the moment I arrived in Taipei together with a Filipina friend who showed me around. Better to go there and start hiking in the afternoon and wait for the sunset. There’s a good view of Taipei 101 as well. Pop up the question during the sunset, that would be lovely.

#4 The Top Taiwan

A local Taiwanese guy invited me and showed me some places in Taipei. He was driving a BMW car which I wasn’t expecting. We went to The Top Taiwan for dinner. My jaw dropped and got amazingly surprised by the view. We even witnessed a proposal here and it was the best romantic night ever. Lucky girl!

#5 Bitan Suspension Bridge in Taiwan near Xindian station

A local friend whom I met during my second time in Taiwan gave me a new place to go to and that is Bitan Suspension Bridge near Xindian Station. It’s easy to go there just by taking the green line. It’s a park for local people where they cycle or bike around, enjoy the walk to the bridge, and just do the paddle boat on the river. Stay until evening and you will witness the bridge illuminated by light beams and change into different colors. Pop up the question at night as you will witness the musical fountains as well.

#6 Maokong Gondola the Cable Car Ride

My Filipina friends who work in Taiwan decided to meet me. From Taipei Main Station we took the Taipei metro station and switched to the brown line (Wenshan-Neihu line) going to Taipei Zoo. From Taipei Zoo, just walked to Maokong Gondola to take the cable car ride. You need to pay NTD 200 (if the price is right). Inside the gondola, there was a couple who were so sweet that it made me realize that this is also a good place to do a romantic proposal.

The idea is to bring two friends with you to take videos of the proposal. Inside the gondola can bring in four to five people. The gondola ride takes 20-25 minutes with four passenger stations. Along the way, you will see the view of the mountains. Watch out the glass floor if you’re not afraid of heights, or else, just enjoy the tingling view under your feet.

#7 The Sky Lantern Experience at Shifen Old Street

Personally, I never thought that the Sky Lantern Experience at Shifen Old Street can also be one of the best romantic places to propose marriage in Taipei. The other day, I just saw on a Facebook group how the guy proposed to the girl.

Idea is, the guy wrote on the lantern the Chinese words of ‘Will You Marry Me’ which the girl wasn’t aware of. He thanked their tour guide for helping him to write it on the lantern. While taking a countdown in the preparation of flying up the lantern, the guy dropped on his knee and asked the magic phrase. The girl said yes. Happily ever after?

Well, that was a nice move from the guy. Down below is a video of my experience of flying the sky lantern.
