Vancouver among top places in the world to propose

Dec 19 2017, 8:07 pm

Vancouver ranks among the top 20 places in the world to propose, according to research conducted by ethical British jewellers Ingle & Rhode.


The city came in at number 11 on the list, just missing out on a top 10 that included cities like London, Toronto, San Diego and our near neighbours to the south, Seattle. New York took the top spot in the list, which was put together by looking at the locations of more than 250,000 Instagram photos using the hashtags #isaidyes, #proposal, #proposed and #heproposed.

“With its idyllic setting and laid-back yet vibrant culture Vancouver offers the best of both worlds,” the research states. “It’s an urban environment surrounded by natural beauty and has to be one of the only places in the world where you can go skiing in the morning and hit the beach in the afternoon.”
