So one of your best friends is finally getting married? Well, you’re probably approaching the age where this will begin to happen more and more frequently, but don’t worry too much. It’s a good thing really because now you’ll get to experience the enjoyments, perils, and pitfalls of planning a successful stag do. Although some people chose to visit Blackpool or some other seaside town in Britain, many find that that it actually works out much cheaper to travel abroad for a few days. The options are endless, from skiing in Austria to deep sea fishing in Thailand. Whatever your budget, there’s sure to be something that fits your needs. Just make sure to plan your activities ahead of time and keep the groom’s preferences in mind.
Given the variety of options available, it can surely be confusing to finalize one. To help you shortlist some good destinations, we have come up with a list. Have a quick read through this article to find out about 5 of the most popular stag do locations in the world. Hopefully, then you’ll be in a better position to make that final decision.
When most people think of Amsterdam, all that comes to mind is artwork, canals, ladies of the night, and that odd smell you seem to find flowing through every winding street. However, this city has a lot more to offer than drugs and women. In fact, some of the coolest bars and clubs in the whole of Europe call Amsterdam home, and as flights and accommodation can be obtained incredibly cheaply, this place is sure to be a big hit with your stag party.
If the lads prefer hot weather, taking a short trip to Costa Brava could be just what they need. This coastal region of Northern Spain enjoys fantastic weather, and more importantly; fantastic nightlife. Hotels in Costa Brava are also very competitive, so there really is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to travel there on a tight budget, especially if you’re making a large booking, as hotels will often give you a group discount.
For those who enjoy city breaks but feel that Amsterdam is too predictable, why not book some tickets to Prague in the Czech Republic. I traveled here myself a couple of years ago and hardly spent a penny. My flights were 45 return, the apartment we booked worked out to around 100 each for 5 days, and the beer was about 40p per pint. So if you’re looking to save on cash whilst also visiting a truly remarkable city, Prague is seriously worthy of consideration.
Sure most people don’t even consider Latvia when they’re booking a short holiday, but this is something that will begin to change over the coming years. With “cheap as chips” accommodation and even cheaper beer and cigarettes, Latvia will soon become a very popular destination, especially with those who’re planning stag do’s. So get ahead of the crowd and become one of the Latvian stag do pioneers.
Admittedly, this place is a little bit over the top for most peoples tastes, but if you’re looking to spend a few days constantly drinking and dancing, then a trip to this Balearic island could be perfect. You’ll probably already know that some of the largest and most impressive clubs on Earth are located here, so as long as you don’t mind wading through a sea of 18 year olds who can’t hold their drink, you might find Ibiza to be rather enjoyable.
Now all you need to do is pick your country, get the lads onside, and start booking.
Have fun with that!
