Nuptial bells ringing? There’s no harm in letting loose some pre-wedding jitters by going crazy one last time before your big day.
Having a destination bachelor bash is the rage currently, and for good reason. What better way to deal with wedding heebie-jeebies than to take off with your pals? But, the type of groom makes a big difference in the type of bachelor party places you are going to have to pick. Below is a list to help you navigate the minefield.
Bachelor Party Places For The Party Animal
The first name on the list is a no-brainer, India’s party capital – Goa. It has beaches, bars, pubs, nature, nightlife, and a whole bunch of crazy things going on. Ideal for – people who want to party like there’s no tomorrow. Time to plan – cool November to February weather for the coolest parties. Wallet-friendly alternative – Goa’s sister, Gokarna.
For the Young at Heart
Second most populous city in the world, Mumbai, with its never-ending nightlife, its numerous pubs, and clubs to cater to every partygoer’s whims. Ideal for – people who like to get on the dancefloor and groove all night. Time to plan – anytime you want to break a leg. Wallet-friendly alternative – Silicon Valley of India, Bengaluru.
For Those Who Take the Road Less Travelled
Leh-Ladakh, for the bike ride of your lifetime. Need to get away from the maddening crowd of the city and stressful wedding planning? This is your go-to option where you can enjoy nature at its mightiest with your best bros, on one of the highest places in the world. Ideal for – adventure junkies. Time to plan – summertime, April to June. Wallet-friendly alternative – Rishikesh, to quench your thirst for adrenaline.
For The Laid back and Chilling Kind
Kasol, if you want to just ‘chill’ with your mates, on one of the highest places in India, pun intended. All you need to do is pack your backpacks, take an overnight journey to the hills and just relax in the lap of mother nature. Ideal for – peace lovers, backpackers, and plant enthusiasts. Time to plan – October to June. But if you’re the hiking or trekking kind, then March to May. Wallet-friendly alternative – Pondicherry, little France down south or Ziro Valley, Arunachal Pradesh.
For the Luxe
Jaisalmer, because what else can match up with royalty. Ideal for – people who want to party luxuriously. Time to plan – winter time. Wallet-friendly alternative – luxury doesn’t come cheap.

For the Broke
Wedding bills pulling on your wallet? There’s no place like home to have a jolly good time with your mates – given certain conditions. One, either get your parents out of there or have your friend host at his place. Two, no unnecessary phone calls. Not even the bride’s. Ideal for – everyone. Time to plan – anytime. Wallet-friendly alternative – Come on, guys. Seriously?
Other Things You Can Do
Kill each other, while playing video games. Paintball. Skydive. Not repeat ‘The Hangover’.
Have a bro-tastic bachelor party. Cheers!
