Lock-in your love – France & China

Lock-in your love – France & China

Your wedding ring symbolises neverending devotion. Which is nice. But why not leave a little love elsewhere?

Your wedding ring symbolises neverending devotion. Which is nice. But why not leave a little love elsewhere? Paris's Petit Pont de l'Archevêché is festooned with padlocks, each inscribed with the initials of the lovebirds who fastened them there, before tossing the key into the Seine. It's sort-of eternal -  authorities occasionally get the hump and clear them away, so take a photo for posterity, just in case.

Another, more exotic option is to ascend China's mistily romantic Hua Shan (120km east of Xi'an and the Terracotta Warriors). On this holy summit, one of the country's five Sacred Mountains, is Gold Lock Pass. Here, climbers fix padlocks to the iron chains and pray for the health of their loved ones, with views of sheer-sided peaks all around.
