Looking for "undiscovered" destination for "pop the question"

Jump to last reply

Ok guys and gals, I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times on this and other forums, but either I don't know how to search the forum or the search just stinks and isn't returning good results. Forgive me in advance, but I've done so much looking online that I'm just confused now. Please lend any advice/suggestions if you have them

In November I plan on asking my girl friend to marry me and I'm looking for the perfect vacation spot to do so.

What I'm looking for: an October or November vacation destination that is either "undiscovered" or not overly commercialize and touristy. We was to get a real taste and feel of the local culture, not a watered down version. Not interested in hot spots like Cancun, Bahamas, virgin island ect. We don't want a spring break-y place. I am looking for more a Traveler experience than a tourist experience. I'm trying to find the perfect mix of raw nature and luxe. We'd like a nice semi-luxe spa hotel or resort for at least part of the trip but are open to "roughing it" for some of the trip. I want lush jungle and adventure, she wants spa, white beaches and relaxation. Romantic locale a bonus. We are both very much into food and trying new things so a destination with great and interesting cuisine is a bonus. I had originally planned for something in Thailand, but I'd really like to keep the flight times under 12hrs. I am still considering Thailand if i can't decided on anything else. Other than flight times Thailand or south east Asia would be perfect IMO. We will be flying out of DFW. I'm hoping to keep the total cost for flight + hotel under $6,000usd. Planning on being gone from home for about 5 - 8 days (including travel time). Multiple destinations would be cool to.

So in a nutshell.. pop the question, romantic, jungle, beach, food, undiscovered, not touristy or commercial, and under 12hrs flight from Texas,USA. Tall order I know, but maybe someone out there doesn't mind sharing their secret. PM me if you prefer.

oh, and in the interest of full disclosure, yes I am posting this on other travel sites so don't bust on me too hard for it.
