So, gather around your posse, and grab a bottle of wine to share. You can toss around ideas and find something that you all like, and we’re here to provide you with some great suggestions. A list of top locations for a fun spring break coming right up!
Vietnam is one of the most fun locations for an all-gal trip because it allows you a lot of freedom to just be who you are. Most people here get around on motorbikes, and this is the perfect opportunity to rent a few for yourselves and ride around, looking all hot. Hanoi is full of culture and one thing you definitely don’t want to miss is the Vietnamese Women’s Museum that seeks to preserve the historical importance of women in society and it showcases their different lives, skills, and contributions.
If you want something a little spooky and exciting, then check out Hoa Lo Prison and learn about its gruesome history. Of course, besides culture, you can also enjoy excellent food tours and quality nightlife in Hanoi and hire a cycle-rickshaw to get you around and show you all the sights. Overall, this is an excellent pick for an adventurous squad.
If you’re not much for adventure and just want to chill around in complete peace, then Skopelos is a lovely option. This is actually the filming location they used for Mamma Mia, and it’s every bit as charming as you see in the movie. If you go during spring you should have a lot more peace, so get ready to finally rest from stressful everyday life and put your mind at ease.
The Algarve, Portugal
Portugal’s southernmost region, and a real slice of paradise on earth. Here’s where you need to be if you can’t wait to show off your bodies in hot little bikinis and see sexy Portuguese men at every turn. From the busy Faro and its bustling nightlife and cultural wonders, to the more remote Alcoutim where you can find a little quiet and spend some time relaxing. The beaches are gorgeous — golden sand, azure waters, and natural caves that make a perfect backdrop for some cool selfies.
Another thing you’ll definitely enjoy is the Church of São Lourenço. Found in Loulé, its baroque design is absolutely stunning. The outside might look completely unimposing, but on the inside, the whole church is covered with carefully decorated ceramic tiles crafted by Policarpo de Oliveira Bernardes. There’s something for everybody in the Algarve, so it’s very easy to modify your vacation to suit the taste of your squad and make sure you all have a great time.
Dublin is lovely in spring, and it’s the time of the year that the greenery is in bloom and everything feels fresh and alive. This destination is the best choice for laidback women who just want to hang out together. From charming cobbled streets to numerous bars and pubs, it’s just the place to be if you’re a lover of beer.
Why not visit the Guinness Factory and get a little tipsy? Better yet, do a tour of the Jameson Whiskey Distillery! After all, you’ve got all your besties around you guard your back. The nightlife is also pretty great, so don’t forget to pack a few sexy outfits and get ready for dance parties.
