Read on to discover the perfect bachelor party destinations from every corner of the globe.
Las Vegas, USA
This is a dream destination for any bachelor boy and scores high on party destination lists around the world.

Whether it is your bachelor party or you’re just a bachelor, Las Vegas should be high up on your list of places to visit. Oh, and let’s not forget: What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
New York, USA
You just cannot go wrong with a party in the Big Apple. Bright lights, cocktail bars, themed pubs, skyscrapers, beautiful women, Central Park, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Fifth Avenue and massive all American breakfasts…what more do you want? We recommend going on a pub crawl or bar hop here – you will have the time of your life!
Paradise Island, Bahamas
Fancy a James Bond experience? Head to Paradise Island, just off the shore of Nassau, where Casino Royale was filmed. Although a little expensive, the Island offers resorts, world-class golf courses and the famous Café Martinique. Some exceptional landmarks are Hurricane Hole and the Ocean Club. Also nicknamed the Island of Songs - and with good reason - you’re bound to hear music everywhere you go.
South Beach, USA
Sometimes referred to as one of the sexiest places in the world, the city offers everything from countless beaches and gorgeous ladies in bikinis, from golf to gambling, from the hottest and trendiest clubs in the United States to opulent eating joints, and all this with year-round sunny weather and blue skies. Kick off your festivities at Nikki Beach club, known for its ‘anything goes’ policy. Other great nightclubs to keep you occupied here are Priv, Wax, Liquid and Amnesia.
If you wish for an outstanding cocktail of chic nightclubs, old world charisma, some of the hottest women in the world and celebrated strip clubs, your genie lives here. Often overlooked, the place is a haven for those looking for great club life without taxing one’s purse too much. Crescent Street, Newtown, Tokyo Bar on St. Laurent, Globe, Buona Note, Time Supper Club, Complex Millennium Club Exit, Funkytown, Club Seven, Thursday's Club, Electric Avenue are just some of the few that offer flawless VIP service and an experience to remember.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Many years ago, Cabo was a fishing village. Now, it offers world class diving, championship golf courses and squeaky clean beaches, combined with fantastic weather. It doesn’t get much better than this. It is also famed for its fishing, so if an idyllic holiday is what you’re looking for, look no further! If you’re looking for something a little more exciting, hit El Squid Roe, the number one party place there. Don’t forget to take your time getting there, though –the party doesn’t start before midnight.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The city, home to the stunning Christ the Redeemer statue and the birthplace of Samba offers parties, wonderful beaches (don’t miss out on the famous Copacabana beach), wild street dances, balls, colourful costumes and parades, along with the beaches, bars, babes and boutiques in Ipanema. If you can swing it, try to time your trip with the Rio Carnival held annually in February/March. You’ll get street festivals, crazy costumes, samba dance-offs, alcohol, floats and an unbeatable experience.
Another destination that makes its way to most party lists is the beautiful Mediterranean island of Ibiza. If you want to drink yourself silly at any of the hundreds of nightclubs and then spend the next day lying on golden sandy beaches, nursing your hangover while staring at babes in bikinis, you should already be booking your flight. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could also try activities like para-sailing, bungee jumping, snorkeling or just swimming. Another option is to take a boat ride to explore the isle and enjoy the traditional landscape of this stunning Mediterranean jewel. Additionally, Spain is home to many more places that are equally stunning, less-crowded and equally filled with beautiful women. You could also check out Barcelona, Marbella, Malaga and Valencia.
If you’re looking for a potent mix of ‘the most beautiful women in the world’, affordable flights, someplace offbeat and a city that has everything from Irish pubs to up-market cocktail bars to strip clubs – look at Kiev. If you’re really looking for some good, healthy male bonding time during the day, you can go tank driving and get the opportunity to fire Kalashnikovs, shotguns and sniper rifles. Kiev is also full of churches, cathedrals, statues and attractions, which include the mummified monks of the Lavra; enough to do while you get over your hangover! At night, the city comes alive with its numerous bars and any number of fancy clubs. If you do manage to score your way into one of the VIP clubs, don’t leave without one of those lap dances, which you would otherwise have to sell your car to get! If you’re looking for cheap booze, check out the Dnipro party boats. Either which way, you’re bound to have a fantastic time.
We guarantee that you will never forget a weekend in Bangkok. Unlike any other city, Bangkok is the perfect mix of culture and sleaze, with temples and go-go bars residing amicably side by side. With markets and streets that never sleep, Bangkok is crawling with bars, pubs, lounges, karaoke bars, strip clubs, erotic shows and ‘massage parlours’ galore. This is the one place where you can indulge in whatever takes your fancy and get away with it. If that’s not your scene, take a boat trip to any other islands around the area and get away from it all.
