Party Places In The World
Some travel to explore ancient historical sites, others to sample the culture or food or language of new or exciting sites. And, sometimes, people travel to the party. When it comes to budget backpacking, one of the most common ways that travelers break the ice is over a drink. Or two. Or three. Whether it's talking in bars, clubs, lounges, beach parties, or just in small groups drinking a bottle of wine, alcohol - for better or worse - is often a staple of life on the street. If you want to embrace your wild side and work hard with other travelers, here is my thorough research list. I have lived in over a hundred countries and am very drunk around the world, so when I look up I discover a good party! If you want to party while traveling, then visit one of these places:
1. Bangkok, Thailand
People posing for photos at a bar in Bangkok, Thailand Bangkok is a major destination for travelers. It is located on the notorious Khao San Road. It is filled with travelers drinking a bucket full of liquor every night. They take after the locals who drink wine from a bucket full of liquor every night. Seriously. Stop by the ex-pat bar on Tuesday and everyone is drinking. Then, when the official bars are closed, everyone goes to clubs after 5 in the morning. Going to Bangkok will not do anything good for your liver. New view cocktail brew in Khao San Road, ex-pat bar, Patpong, Thong Lore or Chinatown - Bangkok has something for everyone.
2. Barcelona, Spain
People chilling on the beach in Barcelona, Spain Any city where people eat food at midnight is a city that will start and go late. Barcelona is a city for night owls. The clubs here are not busy till about 2 pm and are packed till dawn. Why is it that the residents do not get up before noon. Tourists mingle with the locals here, who all love the good weather and the roof bar on the roof. Drink the Sangria until the sun rises, go on a pub crawl, get ruined in the famous Kabul hostel, and wander Barry Gothic looking for a hole in the wall pub. The waterfront gets particularly crazy over the weekend.
3. Rome, Italy
People on the stairs near the pavement bars in Rome Rome was a great city to party in. There are lots of bars, lots of kicking clubs and lots of beautiful people. Pub crawl tours are a great way to meet other travelers. You are often very sociable and do crazy things with people you meet. (See the exhibition above!) While the Romans themselves are a bit deprived, the backpacker party scene here tones and bars crawl from the city's litter. The Spanish Steps bar crawl is particularly wild.
4. Prague, Czech
Republic A wild party in Prague, Czech Cheap beer (and cheap flights) make this city a major party destination for people around the world. Although I have not met any of those infamous stag parties, the nightlife of this city will leave you in a surprise and wonder what you did last night and what number you had on your arm. Multiple story clubs, strong cocktail bars, cheap beer halls - Prague has it all. If you want a wild hostel, stay at the Mad House.
5. Miami, Florida
People dancing at a beach party in Miami, USA Miami is not cheap, but it is a great place for the clubs there. Lots of music, lots of DJs, lots of dancing, lots of people, and most importantly, lots. Even on a backpacker budget, you won't find anything fun. You might also participate in a celebrity or two.
6. Sydney, Australia
People partying with confetti at a ceremony in Sydney The Australian team is well aware that they party and do well. Hostels in Sydney organize great hostel parties to meet other travelers but if that is not your thing, you can find your crowd at any of the clubs and bars around the area. Australians love to party and are happy to welcome new people with a drink.
