Romantic Locations in South Korea For Outdoor Lovers


1. Jeju Island

Known for its stunning natural beauty, Jeju Island offers numerous idyllic spots for a proposal. The Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, with its breathtaking sunrise views, or the romantic Jeongbang Waterfall, which falls directly into the sea, are excellent choices.


2. N Seoul Tower - Seoul

Located on Namsan Mountain in the center of Seoul, the N Seoul Tower provides a panoramic view of the city's skyline. The Love Locks fence, where couples attach padlocks as a symbol of their love, offers a particularly romantic spot for a proposal.


3. Haeundae Beach - Busan

One of the most famous beaches in South Korea, Haeundae Beach is especially beautiful at sunset. The sandy beach and sound of the waves make it a classic spot for a romantic proposal. The long stretch of sand and the sound of the waves create a classic beach proposal setting. For a quieter moment, consider a sunrise or sunset proposal when the crowds are thinner.





Suzanne was amazing! I utilized the layaway service and it was a breeze. Ring made its way to Texas and was even more gorgeous in person."

4. Garden of Morning Calm - Gapyeong

This garden is especially beautiful during the lighting festival in winter, but it offers a lush, floral setting year-round that's perfect for a peaceful, scenic proposal.


5. Bamboo Forest - Damyang

This lush, verdant bamboo forest offers a serene and picturesque setting. The tranquil paths and the rustling of the bamboo leaves create a magical atmosphere ideal for a proposal.


6. Gyeongbokgung Palace - Seoul

Proposing in the traditional and historical setting of Gyeongbokgung Palace, especially with the beautiful backdrop of Bukhansan Mountain and the elegant palace buildings, can be very memorable. Find a secluded spot to propose amidst the timeless beauty of the surroundings.


7. Han River

A nighttime cruise on the Han River with the glittering lights of Seoul as your backdrop can provide a magical and intimate setting for a proposal. Alternatively, a simple but romantic picnic along the riverbank during the evening can be just as memorable.


Romantic Destinations in South Korea

South Korea is full of romantic beaches, cities and islands. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal over a glass of wine, at a spectacular island, or on a beautiful beach.


8. Gwangalli Beach - Busan

Famous for its fine sand and the stunning view of the Gwangan Bridge, especially at night when it's beautifully lit up, Gwangalli Beach is ideal for a romantic evening proposal. The beach is less crowded than Haeundae and offers a more relaxed vibe.

This restored stream offers a quiet escape from the bustling city life. The stream is beautifully lit at night and features various small waterfalls and overpasses that make for a picturesque proposal setting.


10. Nami Island - Chuncheon

Famous for its scenic tree-lined roads, especially beautiful during autumn when the leaves are changing colors, Nami Island provides a picturesque and whimsical setting. It's particularly popular for its romantic ambiance and tranquil beauty.
