A trip over to Europe is now the general name of the game for most UK stag do, and with the opening up of Eastern Europe with cheap airlines, there are numerous new hotspots that have been descended upon by UK party animals. With budget prices, stunning girls and an anything goes atmosphere, these new destinations have also been popping up on the radar of cash rich American’s, who want to see what they have been missing out on to their transatlantic cousins.
Stephen Banter, a director at UK stag weekend organiser SuperFeel.co.uk, comments: “Eastern Europe has been popular with the UK stag and hen market for several years now, but what we have noticed just recently is that we have been getting a number of enquiries from the US, where Bachelor Parties are considering something a bit unique for their event, and want to get a sample of the Eastern European action, before it gets over run by tourists, and the cities just mirror their western European counterparts. At the moment there is a bit of the Wild West about Eastern European cities, and they are the ultimate destination for a stag weekend.
With cheap transatlantic air flights, it now seems that a short trip across the Atlantic is now on the list of ultimate bachelor party destinations, for the additional discerning guys where Las Vegas is just old hat.
On the most popular destinations, Stephen went on to comment “Budapest is exceedingly hot at the moment, and there is always a big demand Prague. There are also lot of classic new locations that are starting to get pretty big, for example Riga, Tallinn, Krakow and Vilnius”.
If it wasn’t already renouned, the fresh faced bachelors of the UK are the world leaders in coordinating pre-wedding parties for the bride and groom to be. Over in the UK, the ‘bachelor party’ is additional fondly termed the ‘stag weekend’, which gives some indication that it is not just a one evening affair! It is now part and parcel that any English bachelor party encompasses at least a full weekend (often abroad), and is often even extended out into a full week!
A strange phenomena seems to be travelling through the ranks of the fresh faced American ‘soon to be married’ Bachelors. They seem to be catching party fever for their transatlantic cousins in fantastic Britain, and are starting to copy them (and even out do them) in their pursuit of the most liveliest ‘bachelors parties’.
