In some cases, brides- and grooms-to-be will jet off into the sunset to enjoy their wedding abroad – and recent statistics indicate that over half of Britons are choosing to enjoy their stag or hen dos abroad, too.
With that in mind, which locations around the world offer you the best and most unique places for your hen do?
If you don’t want to travel too far (or even want to avoid flying), you can still head out of the UK if you venture to Dublin. Renowned for its unbeatable hospitality (not to mention its hunky Irish men), a Dublin hen party offers plenty of culture and places to celebrate. With more than 600 bars and pubs to choose from in the city, it’s perfect for a night out (or two), while all of the attractions and sights are ideal for daytime activities.
Want to make it even more special? Then why not combine this trip with one to Galway, which is becoming an increasingly popular destination for hen dos thanks to its charm, character and live music.
2. Las Vegas
For something truly memorable, there’s no better place than Sin City. Although this might be at the top of the list for the majority of stag dos, it’s not always one of the go-to destinations for hen dos. But with so much to see and do, we think this glamorous location is the ultimate place for a hen do. From heading to one of the city’s famous shows to enjoying a high-rolling night at one of its many casinos, Las Vegas is the perfect place to celebrate your upcoming marriage.
When you don’t want to follow the typical crowds, there’s one location that’s a must – Reykjavik in Iceland. Despite it being the coldest destination on our list, there’s nothing cold about its nightlife or atmosphere, as the nightclubs and bar crawls on offer are pretty unforgettable. After all, what could be better than walking home from a night out with the Northern Lights beaming down on you?
Equally, you’ll also want to make sure your trip there includes a day trip to one of the geothermal lagoons – ideal for relaxing in before or after your night out.
Finally, if you fancy relaxing and unwinding while topping up your tan, Portugal’s Algarve could be the ultimate destination for you. Boasting over a hundred miles of white, golden, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, the Algarve is a must-visit destination if you’re looking for your own little slice of paradise. Not only can you enjoy the balmy weather during the day but there’s also plenty of shops and vibrant markets to explore.
Then, at night, you can choose to dine at a world-class eatery, head to one of the hottest clubs on the continent or get your poker face in order for a night at the casino. With such a mix of things to do in the Algarve, a hen do here can be as classy, chic or crazy as you like!
As you can see, there’s no end to the possibilities available for your hen do abroad – but one thing’s for sure, jetting off to one of these fantastic locations is sure to make your hen do a truly memorable one.
