What are you looking for in a vacation? Rich culture? Interesting history? Great food and drink? Maybe that all sounds pretty boring to you and all you’re looking for is somewhere you can party.
You’ve got plenty of time to do all that other stuff when you’re older but for now you’re just looking for the best party destinations in the world, well look no further.
If you want to keep your costs down and still have a great weekend away, there’s no need to go abroad anywhere at all. Sydney has plenty to offer in the way of party opportunities but people often miss out on them in favor of all the usual tourist stuff like the opera house. The Bucks Co. sell package deals which include accommodation and stuff to do all rolled into one. During the day you can play poker or hit the go-kart track and then in the evening visit some of the city’s best party hot spots.
Israel doesn’t usually spring to mind when you’re thinking of vibrant holiday destinations but the city of Tel Aviv is one of the best places on the planet. It’s renowned for its nightlife, great beaches and locals that love to stay out partying until the early hours. There are amazing festivals on all year round, including Asia’s biggest gay pride parade and the country’s first ever sex festival.
Mykonos in Greece is often called an ‘adults playground’ and it’s fast taking over Ibiza as Europe’s number one party destination. The incredible beaches are packed full of dancers from early afternoon all the way up until morning. Most of the bars and restaurants are open all night so whatever the time, there’s always plenty going on. Most people in Europe tend to take holidays in August so if you head there then, the place will be bustling.
Las Vegas is surely the most iconic party spot in the world, so famous for the crazy antics that go on there that they made a series of movies about it. Hitting the casinos in Vegas is on a lot of people’s bucket list but there’s so much more than that. There are literally small cities in Vegas so there’s always something to do. You’re likely to meet a lot of like minded revellers in the city as well because it attracts thousands of partygoers every year.
New Orleans is a fairly good party town all year but if you really want to see it at its best, head down there when Mardi Gras is on. It’s one of the biggest and best festivals in the entire world where you’re guaranteed to find some madness. The city has relaxed laws on public drinking so the fun often spills out of the bars and onto the streets, forming one huge citywide party.
These are all great party destinations for a bachelor party, or just a weekend away with mates to blow off some steam.
