Sometimes a holiday is all about relaxing- putting your feet up and enjoying a couple of weeks in the sunshine and not doing much. But it doesn’t have to be like this, and if you prefer a more active kind of getaway then why not visit a party destination like trampoline park peoria? Maybe you’ve just finished university and want to party, perhaps it’s your hen or stag party and you want to celebrate in style or maybe you just want to let your hair down. There are places in the world that are well known for entertainment and nightlife, so regardless of what you’re celebrating you’re sure to have an amazing time and make it an occasion to remember. Just be sure to do your research beforehand, and don’t just assume that everywhere will be open all year as many places will have a high and low season. Lots of the party venues will be closed for a number of months so you’ll need to know when the best time to go is as well as the destination. But here are some of the best places across the world to consider. 

Ibiza

When you think about going to a party destination, one of the first places that probably springs to mind is Ibiza. It’s home to some of the most famous clubs in the world, from Pacha to Space Ibiza to Amnesia. If you’re looking for a place to drink and dance the night away then you cant go far wrong here. The clubbing season in Ibiza runs from May to October, with special occasions like new year’s eve also being popular. During the off season, Ibiza is much more relaxed, you can enjoy the scenery, stunning beaches, shops, markets and so much more. 

Thailand

Thailand is well known for its incredible nightlife with many tourists flocking to the capital Bangkok, famous for its swanky rooftop bars and trendy clubs. The Pattaya nightlife and party scene is well loved by tourists visiting Thailand, a great choice if you’re after something a little more saucy! From the ladyboys of Bangkok to adult style nightclubs it’s likely to be a lot different to anywhere else in the world you’ve been. There are numerous bars and nightclubs, cabaret shows and live music across the city to keep you entertained- the drinks will most definitely keep on flowing.

Las Vegas

If you’re looking to party then it doesn’t get any better than Vegas, a destination which is known for its nightlife and entertainment. You have casinos and bars, shows and nightclubs, you could attend a yacht party, throw a pool party or whatever other party you felt like! If it’s mainly the casinos that interest you then there are other options aside from Vegas, the Borgata for example would give you the same electric atmosphere and the chance to win big! In Vegas you have the benefit of the gorgeous scorching hot weather and plenty to do during the day as well as at night. Well worth adding to your travel bucket list. 

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is rich in culture and heritage, being home to museums such as the Anne Frank house and Van Gough Museum, but it also has a fun party atmosphere too- this means that just about everyone can enjoy the destination and find something they like to do. Along with its stunning waterways, the Netherlands capital of Amsterdam is known for its incredible nightlife.  Electro music is popular here, with the Amsterdam Dance Event being hosted here annually, it’s one of the biggest club events anywhere in the world. There’s no shortage of clubs and bars, and whether you want to listen to dance music or hear a live band play, there’s something for you. Amsterdam is famed for its ‘cannabis culture’ with tons of coffeeshops all around the city- which can be something a little different you could try while you were away if you so wished. Just be aware of the law, you will need to be over eighteen (or twenty one in some establishments) and have your passport with you to take part in this. You can only enter the same coffee shop twice in one day, and few other things that are worth being aware of so do some research if this is part of your itinerary.

Dublin

The Irish know how to party, and Dublin is an ideal destination if you want to drink some alcohol and party the night away. From big clubs like The Sugar Club and Club M to lots of traditional Irish pubs, ‘late bars’ and fancier wine bars and restaurants- there’s more than enough nightlife to keep you occupied in Dublin. The Irish tend to be stereotyped as liking a good alcoholic drink, but alcohol is part of the heritage with brewing having a long history in the country, it’s worth knowing that Dublin is home to the largest brewery in the world (something you can visit on your trip) manufacturing 1.2 million barrels of Guinness a year. Whether you want to drink Guinness or learn more about it, Dublin is a fantastic city. There are castles, parks, cathedrals and plenty of other cool stuff to do during the day too. .

London

London is brimming with amazing nightlife, you have huge clubs like Fabric and Cargo to ‘hidden’ bars, comedy clubs, rooftop and cocktail bars. There are even floating bars on the Thames, the city really does have all you could possibly want from a party destination. Another way you can enjoy the party vibe as well as getting to know more about a destination is to attend a festival, and London is home to plenty of them. This will take some planning, as of course they’ll only be held on certain days of the year. So booking the trip, as well as your tickets with plenty of time will help to avoid disappointment. Whole streets, towns and cities can be lit up with lights, decorations and music with plenty of delicious food and drinks on offer. If you have a location in mind, search online and see what kinds of festivals they host and whether these match up with the dates you’d like to go away.Whether you’re from the UK or coming from abroad, there’s plenty to do and a great destination to consider if you want the drinks to be flowing all night. As all of the nightlife, culture, markets shops and parks, there are lots of green spaces and tourist attractions too to keep you busy during the dat.

Los Angeles

One way to enjoy some gorgeous scenery and soak up some sunshine while partying the day away would be to book a boat party- and LA is the perfect place for this. What better way to spend a day could there possibly be than in the sunshine than with music and dancing, incredible views and the wind in your hair! Decide if it’s a private party you’re after or if you want to join a big group, there are plenty of opportunities at different budgets to do this all over the world. Sunshine, music, alcohol and great company- what could be better? There are plenty of tours for things like dolphin cruises where the wild dolphins will surf the waves of the boat, and glass bottom boats allowing you to get a fascinating look under the surface to make your experience even more spectacular too.

Prague

Known for its stunning cityscapes and cheap beer, lots of tourists flock to Prague for boozy breaks. Budwar, Pilsner Urquell and Staropramen are some of the most famous, but there are tons of cheap beer options and Czech beer is some of the best in the world. There are tons of cool pubs and bars all over the city meaning it’s easy to hop from place to place, all while taking in incredible European architecture. If you get time on your trip and fancy a break from the drinking and partying, you could hire a car one day and take a drive out of the city and further into the stunning Czech Republic. Expect to see mountains, lakes and woods and pass through ‘olde worlde’ traditional villages and towns. 

The next time you’re planning a special occasion, why not consider travelling to one of these places to party?

If you want to book online then a one-way ticket by train to Pisa from Florence will cost from €7.80 (US$10.40) in 2nd class. It is important to make sure that when you are searching online via the Italian train booking site, Trenitalia, you search for “Firenze” rather than Florence.

The train schedules are very easy to understand so we recommend booking your ticket from the self-service machines on the train platform. The return journey is just as easy in reverse. Just watch that you don’t miss the last train around 10pm most days and carry cash with you for the ticket.

Finally, validate your ticket before boarding the train. We forgot a couple of times but used the typical “I’m a stupid tourist” line to get out of any fines.

Bus to Pisa from Florence

Another option is to catch the bus to Pisa from Florence.

There are two main bus companies, Terravision and Autostradale, run regular buses to and from Pisa Airport and Florence Airport into the Florence city centre, they don’t actually go into Pisa itself. The train to Pisa from Florence is so reliable, fast, and cheap, that you may not want to consider this option.

However, there are some advantages to taking the bus. You will see a lot more scenery from the window of the bus, and it’s definitely cheaper; sometimes you can find fares as low as 4 Euros, especially on Fridays.

Spending time on a yacht is a great way to relax. You can cruise, do water sports, try your luck in fishing, or you can even entertain guests on your yacht. However, a yacht is still a significant investment, so you must learn as much as possible before buying one.

If you are pondering buying a yacht, there are several things that you need to know. You should ask yourself what type of yacht you want to buy and what type best suits your needs.

Aside from this, you also need to determine your budget for purchasing a yacht. Boating safety courses and trial runs are also essential to ensure your safety while on your chosen yacht.

What Do You Want In A Yacht?

 

When buying a yacht, you must ask yourself, “What do I want in a yacht?” Do you want the yacht to be big? Do you want to use the yacht for fishing?

Answering the questions about the yacht you want can help you determine your priorities in buying a yacht. Take, for example, if you want to utilize your yacht for watersports. Certain types of yachts cater to watersports, like wakeboarding and wake surfing.

Another popular way to spend time on your yacht is an overnight cruise. If you want to do this, you should consider the size of the yacht you want to buy. Can it accommodate passengers sleeping onboard?

Questions like these can help determine if you need different amenities in a yacht, like cabins, cooktops, and relaxation areas.

How Much is Your Budget?

Now that you have determined what you seek in a yacht, it is crucial to set a comfortable price for your pockets. When buying a yacht, you can get carried away by all the types and models available.

It might be tempting to go above your budget when buying a yacht, especially when so many options are available. However, it is vital to research yacht prices on manufacturer websites, as well as sites of brokers and dealers.

After all, it is necessary to keep the costs of maintaining a yacht in mind. Some costs of owning a yacht include insurance, repairs, fuel, and general upkeep.

Determining your budget for the yacht and sticking to it can make the most out of your yacht purchase.

Where Do You Buy A Yacht?

Since a yacht is a significant investment, going to a trusted and reliable dealer is your best bet. You can visit websites or written material to gather information about a prospective dealer.

Seasoned dealers need to know your lifestyle to determine what type of yacht suits you best. They can ask questions about your boating preferences, whom you boat with, and other similar queries. They use this information to match you to the yacht that best fulfills your needs at the right price.

Should You Try the Yacht Before You Buy It?

Try and test the yacht that piques your interest as much as possible. If you know a yacht owner with a model you are interested in, you could ask to check the yacht out. Doing this helps you assess the amenities and features of the yacht before you make the big purchase.

Boat shows, if available, are also good ways to see and assess the yacht of your choice. Well-known brands do these shows, allowing you to see and experience the yacht.

What About Your Safety?

Some places require a recreational boat license for you to sail on your yacht. However, you can easily avail classes to sharpen your boating skills. These can help you learn how to sail on a boat and some basic safety measures while on your yacht.

You can look for information on the official website of your local or national maritime safety authority.

How Do You Buy A Yacht?

Buying a yacht might seem like a long, detailed process, but it is pretty straightforward. First, you need to find out what you want in a yacht. In other words, determine your purpose for buying a yacht.

The next step is to set a clear budget and the amenities and size of the yacht you want to buy.

Conclusion

Sailing on a yacht is not a simple task, so acquire all the necessary documents to operate a yacht. The necessary paperwork can include a boating license, boating safety courses, and other relevant documents.

Test the yacht before you commit to it, and make sure that you are comfortable with it before purchasing it. You can attend boat shows and dealer demos or ask someone with a similar yacht to let you assess their yacht.

Lastly, find a yacht dealer that wants the best for you. Finding the best dealer can make your yacht buying process much more manageable. Reliable dealers will keep your budget and goals in mind while matching you to the yacht of your dreams!
