2 April 2019

First off, let’s just say you don’t have to be under 30 to check out all of these awesome places. But there is something cool about doing it when you’re really young, wild and free. So why wait? Get out there and see the world!

1. Fabulous Las Vegas, US

Bright lights, glitzy casinos and go-go dancers – a party in Sin City is as wild as they come. Get your thrills at the roulette wheel. See some of the world’s top musicians performing live in casino showrooms. Check out the famous dancing waters at the Bellagio. Then hit the neon clubs for an all-night party.

2. Crazy Coachella, California

Think massive crowds, music giants and a groovy boho vibe – and you’ll get a taste of what Coachella is all about. This huge music festival has been going since 1999 and just gets bigger and bigger every year. Stomp to the beat of A-list artists such as DJ Snake, Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande and loads more.

Deck yourself out in bright feathers and bling – then get ready to flash some skin at one of the world’s most fabulous festivals. Swig rum cocktails and bust a move to sexy samba beats with a million other party peeps through the dazzling streets of Rio.

4. Party Central St Patrick's Day, Ireland

Raise a Guinness (or 10) to Ireland on Saint Paddy’s Day. Kit yourself out in green, slap a shamrock tattoo on your bod and follow the grand parade with over 500 000 revellers through the streets of Dublin. They say that around 13 million Guinness are consumed during St. Patrick's Day in Ireland. Challenge accepted.

5. Mystical Machu Picchu, Peru

This mystical Inca city is a must-see for anyone. But not all roads to Machu Picchu are the same. Take the more adventurous trek up to the city crossing swinging bridges, climbing steep cliffs and wandering down winding train tracks. Take a selfie with a llama. Climb up super steep Huanya Picchu for epic views. Then party the night away in Cusco.

6. Non-Stop New York, US

Arts, culture, food, bars, shopping, clubs and pubs – NYC has it all. Spend your days checking out the top sights, such as Lady Liberty, Central Park, glitzy 5th Avenue, Wall Street and MOMA. Then party hard at trendy bars and secret speakeasys, pumping night clubs and laid-back live shows. No wonder it’s called the City that Never Sleeps!

7. Rocking Ibiza, Spain

If Ibiza isn’t at the top of your travel list, you’re doing it wrong. World-famous for being ground zero of the hardcore EDM scene, it’s where all the world-famous DJs and beautiful people go to party till they drop. Throw in some stunning beaches, shimmering islands and outdoor adventure – and you’ve got yourself one heck of a party holiday.

8. Sultry Havana, Cuba

Havana ooh nana. This is one city you need to visit soon – before it loses its old-school charm. Play football in the streets with some local kids. Drink a Cuba Libre on the plaza. Sip rum from the bottle on the Malecon at 23rd Street for awesome sea views and a chance to rub shoulders with the locals. Then head to a club to salsa till the sun comes up.


9. Epic Patagonia, Argentina

Grab your backpack and hiking boots – this is going to be the outdoor adventure of a lifetime. Follow the 5-day W trail (or go all out on the 10-day O trek) through the towering mountains, shimmering lakes and sprawling grasslands of Patagonia. Watch as colossal chunks of ice calve off Perito Moreno glacier. Then hit up some clubs and the surprisingly Irish Dublin Pub in Ushuaia – the city at the end of the world.

10. Amazing Argentina, South America

Argentina is huge. So huge that you’ll need more than a couple of days (more like weeks or months) to experience some of the best bits. Start off in Buenos Aires for street-side tango, cosmopolitan flair and the best steak you’ll ever taste. Be wowed by the epic Iguazu Falls. Sip the finest Malbec in Mendoza. Go skiing in quaint Bariloche. Raft, hike and zip-line over the Rio Juramento in Salta. The list goes on and on…


11. Gorgeous Goa, India

When it comes to amazing beaches, colonial culture and crazy nightlife, Goa’s got it going on. Head to Mandrem, Baga and Cavelossim beaches for super chill suntanning and wild water sports. Go white-water rafting on the Mandovi River. Get a funky tribal henna tattoo. Spot panthers in the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary. Then check out Ingo’s Saturday night bazaar in Arpora for some local shopping and late-night partying.
