There really is nothing better than a girls’ weekend away to forget about the daily grind and recharge your batteries. Get together with your girlfriends and enjoy a well-deserved getaway full of sunshine, relaxation, partying, exploration, or adventure. This is what Holidays For Girls are all about!
It’s difficult choosing destinations for girl’s holidays, mainly because everyone has to agree and quite a lot of boxes need to be ticked.
Sun and fun. A girls holiday in Marbella is all about style and sun
Party until the small hours and then chill out in one of the uber cool beach clubs during the day.
Do some designer shopping in Puerto Banus before having a drink in Sinatra’s bar. However, if you don’t want the club scene, the old town is actually great, without requirements to wear the latest fashion labels or have HD brows!
no carbs before marbs!
But if you seek the glitz and glamour that Marbella is renowned for, remember the saying, ‘no carbs before marbs!’.
Marbella is known as a glamorous resort town and is a favourite location with the rich and famous, boosted by foreign residents who are seduced by the lifestyle.
But there’s plenty for ordinary folk to see and enjoy too in southern Spain’s answer to St Tropez. In the chic, sun-drenched Costa del Sol town of Marbella, hints of its former Moorish occupation mingle with modern-day resort amenities.
Bask on the sands of famous La Fontanilla beach or ricochet among the area’s family-oriented water, wildlife and theme parks.
A full moon party in Thailand’s Thailand land of smiles
In the Krabi province alone, there are 150 kilometres’ worth of beaches. The sandy slithers here are all backed by photogenic rock formations. The backdrop in the Khao Lak area is just as much of a sight for sore eyes.
The beaches in this part of Thailand get swallowed up by national parks a few hundred metres from the shoreline. On Phuket island, meanwhile, there’s a real mix. While the crowdless beaches in Mai Khao let you live incognito for a while, the ones in Patong invite you to a permanent party.
Welcome to the Land of Smiles
When you come to Thailand, when you visit forums about Thailand, you constantly see this term bandied about. You’ll often notice the nation abbreviated as LoS.
Some people attribute the moniker to Thai people always being in a good mood. Others, to the endless supply of foreign senior citizens in Pattaya with smiles of bliss glued to their faces after being satisfied simultaneously by two slender Thai teenagers.
Thailand is called the Land of Smiles because the Thais really do smile a lot, but let it be known that not all these “smiles,” called yim in Thai, are what the foreigner would normally define as a smile. The Thais have a wide range of terms for different types of smiles, thirteen to be exact.
They’re like the Eskimos with all their different terms for snow. Most of these smiles do not signify that the Thai person is in a beaming good mood.
