5 Bachelorette Party Ideas That Require A Plane Ticket

The final days of singlehood shouldn’t be taken for granted, but why should the boys have all the fun? Writing this takes us back to a quote from Sex and The City, “Maybe we could be each other’s soul mates. Then we could let men be just these great, nice guys to have fun with.” Instead of the typical last hoorah (novelty cupcakes — yawn), we think your soulmate deserves the ultimate send-off.

#1 Mykonos, Greece

Why stop at a week? Go Greece island-hopping if time (and budget) permits

Bride personality: The wild one

Find another honeymoon destination, because this Greecian island ticks all the boxes for a hen’s night weekend-away. Its cosmopolitan vibe lends to the glitzy parties and all-night beach clubs, and then ease your throbbing headache come morning at the quiet beaches of Elia and Psarau. Don’t miss a night at Paradise and Cavo Paradiso; they’re both two of the best clubs in the world.

#2 New Orleans, Louisiana

The famous Bourbon Street

Bride personality: The old soul

Take a long, long flight to the U.S and spend a few days eating some heavenly Cajun food — the bride-diet will start all too soon (sigh). New Orleans is like no other place we’ve ever been to, it’s as if you’re stepping back into the ghost of blues’ past. Music is a culture phenomenon and with bars that have names like The Spotted Cat, you know it’s going to be one jazzy night.

#3 Lombok, Indonesia

The Oberoi Lombok

Bride personality: Beach bum come bridezilla

If the bride needs to chill, take her on a quiet getaway away from the touristy parts of Bali to Lombok. Besides its laid-back vibe, Lombok one-ups Bali by being able to cram everything to see (there’s not much) into just a weekend. Book a full-day at the spa, go snorkelling at Gili islands, and have a peaceful dinner by the beach. A bride-intervention is optional.

#4 Goa, India

A must-Goa

Bride personality: The one trying to get fit (fast)

 What we love about this beach destination is that it’s a ripe mix of spiritual India come party town. Make this your mantra: “What happens in Goa, stays in Goa”. Some even say it’s the hipster destination of Asia. Goa has 36 beaches in total, combined with rivers, hills, jungles, museums, nightclubs and architecture. To get in a wedding workout, rent bikes like tourists do and cycle down long roads by waterfalls all the way to the countryside.

#5 Macau

The man-made Nam Van Lake

Bride personality: The one with no wedding budget

To be fair, we’d take a trip all the way to Vegas if money was no object, but Macau is well-worth a visit. It definitely comes in second to Bangkok for the title of Asia’s ‘sin city’. Casinos, all-night restaurants, chapels and architecture — there’s plenty to see and do in Macau, but good luck remembering all of it.
