10 Best Party Places IN THE WORLD!!! - Time to Get Crazy
There are not many things about which I would say I am an expert, I am pretty good with women, I have a nice jump-shot and can grill a mean steak...but other than that I am pretty just your average well traveled guy...oh, and I am a total closet nerd who loves musicals and Victorian literature..I know, I need help....
One thing I DO know is how to party...I have been lucky enough to have travelled very extensively and had jobs that have taken me to all kinds of interesting places. Being a total work-a-holic, I tended to keep my nose to the grind-stone through much of the year, not go out on weekends etc. so that I could take a good two or three week vacation and just get crazy.
I thought it would be fun to compile a list of the top party places I have ever been, all of which I will HIGHLY recommend visiting if you are able. There is a good mix of locations here as well as a pretty wide difference in cost, hopefully there is a little something here for everyone.
#10 - Oktoberfest - Munich Germany
Ok, so the music in this video is ridiculous, but you get the idea. Germany is a pretty cool place to go for any reason, but Octoberfest (Oktoberfest) in Munich is just another level. Germany may have the most under-rated women of any country on earth, I was blown away by how BEAUTIFUL and fun most of them I met have been, and that goes for all of Germany, not just Munich. I have been to Oktoberfest twice, once in Frankfurt and once in Munich. Go to Munich if you can, it is a beautiful city AND talk about a awesome party. Not as flat out nuts as some of the others on the list, but a really cool time...and LOTS of hotties of both sexes getting drunk and singing...and making out...who doesn't love that??
#9 - St. Patrics Day - Dublin Ireland
I must admit that I have fallen in love in Ireland or with a Irish girl about 200 times. OMG the accent SLAYS me!! Anyways, you can be pretty sure that if you find a group or Irish while travelling that they will be a good time. The Irish know how to party and they show up in most of the top party destinations. Dublin is not only a beautiful city, it also has a fantastic night life. Temple Bar area is out of control and to go to Dublin for St. Patties day is one of those things you NEED to do at least one in your life, whether you are Irish or not!
#8 - Australia Day - Melborne, Australia
Wow...ok, Australians are HOT!! After meeting many aussies all over the world at pretty much every imaginable party venue and always having a great time, I thought it was time to go and visit the Land Down Under for myself. Australia Day is just a huge party reardless of where you go, but Melborne takes it to another level. Hot bodies, tons of drinking and non-stop party not to mention world class beaches and did I mention tons of drinking and hooking up?
#7 - Vegas
I know, I know, How can I put Vegas this far down the list....well, I must admit it was hard. Vegas is AMAZING and is the destination of choice when America's want to really let loose. However Vegas, though very fun and cool and crazy, is still a corporate America creation with lots of rules and LOTS of police and security. It just does not go as crazy as some of the other places on this list.
#6 - Miami Winter Music Festival- Miami, United States
Wow...Miami is a awesome anytime of year....South Beach is almost always going off, but for those of you that really want a serious party...Miami Winter Music Conference....out of flipping control. I have been to three of these and it is always just a amazing time. Take the hottest women and biggest partiers from all over the world and mix in some serious house music, sun and hard partying.
#5 - Mardi Gras - New Orleans - United States
In perhaps the most debaucherous party in the US, Mardis Gras in new Orleans, and especially Fat Tuesday is as close as we come to Carnival here in the US. Beads, drinking, drinking, beads, flashing and drinking....oh and some dancing and making out. It is always a good time to see people of all ages and from all over the US just letting loose.
#4 - Full Moon Party - Koh Phangan - Thailand
With number 4 we are going to break into another level of partying. Now, don't get me wrong, the parties in the US and most of Europe are intense, but the top four on this list really step it up a notch. #4 is the Full Moon party in Koh Phangan Thailand. Thailand in general is just crazy, but the full moon party is WAY crazy. We are talking non-stop party for 24 hours fueled by all kinds of substances. Go with friends and be careful but make new ones and have a good time, this is one of those that is a MUST do at least once in your lifetime.
#3 - Ios Island , Summer - Ios, Greece
Ios might be my favorite place on this entire list. The first time I went there was after graduating from college..We had intended to go for a week and ended up staying for 2 months. There are three things to do on Ios, drink and party all night, hook-up and recover on the beach. Full of hotties from Ireland, Australia, North America and much of Europe, this place is like the College fraternity version of Ibiza, less trance and drugs and way more sex.
#2 - Carnival - Rio de Janiero, Brazil
It is Carnival...this is the biggest parade of barely clad dancers anywhere on the planet. A two day street parade where the string Bikini is considered conservative. This is the Grand Daddy of all Carnival festivals in Europe, the US (Mardis Gras) etc. Rio is one of the most beautiful places on earth and the night life there is AMAZING on any normal night...during Carnival, it is a non-stop party for about a week. OUT OF CONTROL...this is a must see before you die type of event.
#1 - All Summer - Ibiza, Spain
Not that there is a chance that Ibiza would not be #1 on this list. Anyone who has been here during the summer knows exactlly what I mean. We are talking lots of sun, tons of alcholol and other substances, clubs that hold 10,000 people and pretty much EVERY major DJ on earth for House, Club and Trance IN RESIDENCE for the entire summer. The opening and closing parties are legendary and when the clubs close well AFTER the sun comes up, the party just moves to the beaches.
