Depending on how you look at it, a bachelor party can be a celebration of things to come for your mate or a farewell to bachelorhood. Friends of the groom usually organise the festivities, and this comes with a good few considerations, such as the choice of venue or, for those going big, the destination.
Here are a few places that are sure to make your buddy’s bachelor party an epic one!
Las Vegas, USA
Las Vegas, or Sin City, is the party desert of the world, and what better way to celebrate the groom’s happily-ever-after. Picture poker games, pool parties straight out of a movie scene and five-star hotels with epic views – what more could you ask for?
If you’re looking for year-round warmth and scenic beaches to soak up the sun then Cancun in vibrant Mexico it is. Just make sure to stick to bottled water and to pack sunscreen.
You may have had scenes from Hangover 2 come to mind at the thought of a bachelor party in Thailand, but there’s way more to the Southeast Asian country. For one, the rand is stronger than the baht; the city has a lively nightlife; and it’s the perfect destination to savour delicious Asian cuisine.
Bel-Ombre offers the island life and is closer to South African shores. From luxurious resorts to water activities and sports, this is a great spot to take your stag night to.
Stellenbosch, South Africa
If it’s a shindig of the more sophisticated kind, where wine and five-course dinners can be enjoyed, head to Stellenbosch. Some wine estates offer accommodation and you can learn about the ins and outs of winemaking.
