Top international destinations for a bachelor party

6. Las Vegas

No stag do destination list would be complete without Las Vegas. Whether you want to gamble in the casinos, dance the night away in the world-renowned clubs or just hang out by the pool with the guys, Vegas is full of great options for you. If you’re looking for a high-key party vibe, Sin City is definitely the place to go. Keep in mind that Vegas is an expensive city to explore and that it can get fairly cold in the wintertime.

7. Amsterdam

This hedonistic city is famed for its picturesque canals and tolerant disposition towards sex, drugs and, well, pretty much anything. Walk the trendy streets in the Jordaan district or explore the various museums such as the Van Gogh Museum during the day. At night, start with any one of Amsterdam’s cool bars and, of course, the famous “coffee shops”. There couldn’t be a better backdrop for a night of socially-permitted overindulgence than the Dutch capital.

In short: For a unique and interesting stag do, Amsterdam is a stellar choice.
