The 5 Most Liberating Party Destinations on Earth
When it comes to backpacking, most of us (not just men) have one thing
on our mind as a definite on our ‘to do list’ – and I don’t just mean encountering new cultures.
With the help of a good friend, who I’d refer to as a backpacker in the truest sense of the word, who has been traveling the world for several years, I have compiled a list of the 5 Most Liberating Party Destinations on Earth.
Here they are:
5. Carnival, Rio De Janeiro
If you haven’t heard of this Carnivale’, you are more than likely living in a cave.
This is the world’s most sensuous, vibrant, pulsating party on the planet.
Get ready to explode with joy and music as you move your body to the sensuous vibes
No one does sex appeal like the South Americans!
Although it is not so cheap to fly here, once you get to South America you’ll find it much more affordable and suitable for backpackers / travelers on a budget than Europe or the US etc.
4. Full Moon Party, Thailand.
The famous or infamous Thai Ful Moon Party is a must do once in your life time! About 10,000 – 20,000 people from all over the world come to this beach party to see, feel and experience the sensual vibes of international DJs and beautiful people.
The Thai exchange rate also means you can do it cheaply, on a serious budget!
There is usually at least party 1 every month!
3. Golden Sands, Varna – Bulgaria
For the backpacker on a budget looking for a bargain and a wild but cheap and affordable party town – you can’t beat Golden Sands.
A town specifically built purely for partying on the cheap, this place is one wild night club after another, followed by one cheap hotel after another, all right on a beautiful beach.
Germans and Scandinavians descend on this place every summer and live like Kings and Queens with their excellent currency exchange rate. This place is full of young binge drinking libidos looking for – and having a good time.
Don’t go past X Hostel – the best known hostel in the region for insane parties!! Check out the comments people leave about it!
2. Mykonos, Greece
Mykonos is Europe’s Adult playground, its premier party island.
The mix of sun, sand, alcohol, and Greek culture make for an electric party
atmosphere which brings both the rich and not so rich from places as far away as
the US, Australia, Britain, Germany, etc etc.
Something about the island creates an explosive cocktail of freedom where people
seem to forget it all and just be comfortable and open with themselves and with
Mykonos is not the cheapest of places for people looking to party on a budget, but there are affordable options available.
Its best to go during June/July/August as otherwise the tourists have yet to arrive.
1. Purim in Tel Aviv, Israel.
This is easily one of the wildest parties I have ever been to. Unlike many Western
countries, Israel is a place where women have no qualms about the male libido. What really made me laugh was when guys would sit around telling dirty stories and the girls would chip in and beat us at our own game! Now these are some interesting, not to mention really f*ing hot women. And that is just a general statement – when Purim comes, that attitude gets multiplied by 10 and the street parties go insane!! drunk liberal libidos bring out everything you can possibly imagine at Purim!
I don’t know about the other hostels, but the party sure started early at Hayarkon 88 hostel where pretty much anything goes!
