For most men, the dreaded word, the big M, is Marriage. From doubts, panic to cold feet there a lot of uneasy emotions are attached to the notion of getting married. However once they pass that stage, and accept that it's going to be great there is another on set of emotions. The big W - The Wedding planning! From invitations to decor or colour themes, men couldn't care less and the entire process is passed in a haze of indifference, annoyance and in some bridezilla case- dread.
Though the biggest perk for a man in all the wedding planning fiasco is the one time he gets to really hang loose, let his hair down and enjoy his time with the boys, and that can only happen at the Bachelor Party!
Gone are the days where you just called your friends and went out for a quick round of drinks and they hazed/teased you a bit with corny jokes about getting married. Nowadays, it's all about the party. In fact it's all about the destinations! Buckle up boys; this is one list you will love!
LAS VEGAS - Vegas baby! It's all about the strip, the poker, the drinks, the party and just going absolutely crazy. Even if you're not a gambler when you come to the shrine of casinos, you will at least play the slot machines just for the heck of it. A night out with the boys, shooting jager bombs, hitting the clubs and the tables can turn out to be a night to remember. Unless of course you go a la Hangover style and party just a wee bit too much. Either ways Vegas is always a popular destination for many bachelors and soon to be grooms.
BANGKOK - One night in Bangkok makes a hard man crumble and rightly so. One of the most easily accessible destinations from India, Bangkok has not only become party central but an excellent choice for Bachelor Parties. With ample bars and clubs making up for its active nightlife, this is a very tourist friendly city that encourages you to drink up and have a good time. The proximity to India and its affordable currency exchange rate adds to the appeal making one of Asia's biggest party destinations a very popular choice for many. In fact it's so popular that movie that immortalised epic bachelor party trips chose this vibrant city for its sequel. Nuff said!
MUNICH- Munich is an excellent choice for a stag weekend with your buddies. A city filled with beer gardens, buxom blondes, sausages and currywurst this is a small taste of bachelor paradise! Once you and your pals have gorged on the multiple types of sausage and heavy greasy 'dude food' that their famous for, and you've spend a good day and night guzzling beer and have even had a hard night of excessive partying you could enjoy the rest the city has to offer. A brewery tour, Cycle bar city tours, go karting, paintball or even winter sports like skiing and snowboarding, this city offers a lot of for a bunch of excited young men who want to live it up before one of them gets hitched!
