Big Bad Boat Bashes

on Jul 7, 2015

Where can you bounce to the hottest tunes, drink up, and dance the night away while surrounded by nature’s majesty? On a boat!  Boat parties are a summer staple and the most radical shindigs on the planet! There are plenty or oceanic raves to choose from, be we at PAW have done a little research and have come up with Top 5 Boat Parties you don’t want to miss!     1.)  Pukka Up, Ibiza.  It’s been said that every Ibiza vacation should include at least one boat party and no company does it better that Pukka Up!  They consistently bring the best DJ’s, the hottest crowds, and   leave you with lasting memories (most of which you shouldn’t repeat later!)  Check out the Pukka Up 2013 promo video here!     2.) Yacht Week, Hvar, Croatia.  Yacht Week, a sailing event that tours the Mediterranean, ends with a grand finale in Hvar! Hvar is where all the gorgeous Europeans flock for an escape.  It’s a sexy spot to visit at any time of year, but you don’t want to miss Yacht Week!  Gleaming waters, supermodels, and total luxury.  You probably won’t be able to bring your own boat if you’re part of the 99%, but you can rent a boat with a crew while you’re there so you don’t miss out on any of the fun! 3.)  Groove Cruise, L.A. or Miami to Mexico.  Groove Cruise is a put on by Whet Travel – which already sounds sexy!  They run two 4-day cruises: one that leaves from Los Angeles and parties all the way to Ensenada, and another that jams from Miami to Cozumel.  Their whole mission is to make sure you escape normalcy and have the adventure of a lifetime- so get ready to let loose!     4.) Kandy Kruise, L.A. to Mexico. Kandy Kruise fuses the Miami club scene with cruise ship leisure.   Pools, lounges, casinos, etc, you name it, they’ve got it and you have access to it! Party programming on the boat is designed to give you the ultimate fantasy weekend experience.  So needless to say, on a Kandy Kruise, all of your wildest dreams will come true!     5.)  Chicago Scene Boat Party, Chicago.  You wouldn’t expect one of the world’s greatest boat parties to take place in the Mid-West, but Chicago gets down!  The Chicago Scene Boat Party rates as one of the top best boat parties in the country.  It’s a one day event where over 700 boats, yachts, rafts and jet skies gather for an incredible afternoon of bumbin tunes and libations.  The best part is the event is...

Epic Events

A Festival of Epic Proportions: Our Top A Festival of Epic Proportions: Our Top Picks Nearly every month, in almost every corner of the world, party-going people gather to celebrate a joint interest, tradition, or holiday, turning a once-ordinary event into a festival. While festivals of all sorts are typically worth a pause, no two are created equally and only a few can be described as epic. After sifting through the most popular organized events in the world, these five were selected for their ability to give you an experience of a life time by welcoming you into a party unlike any other.   1.) Tomorrowland: Boom, Belgium – Located in a small Belgian town between Antwerp and Brussels, Boom is a seemingly unlikely home for this fairytale inspired electronic music mecca that has become one of the most notable organized music festivals on the planet. Beginning in just 2005, 2013’s festival will mark the 9th Tomorrowland, transforming the town of Boom into the home of electronic dance music and 185,000 partiers from all over the world – many of which stay on-site and the now infamous Dreamville. This year’s event takes place over four days from July 26-29, but unless you’ve already got your tickets in the bag, you better start planning for next year – tickets were sold out in less than an hour.  http://www.tomorrowland.com/en   2.) Fuji Rock: Naeba Ski Resort, Japan – Although named for the it’s first disastrous year in which the festival was located near Mt. Fuji and effectively ruined by a surprise typhoon, Fuji Rock has bounced back with a vengeance, quickly becoming the first and largest outdoor rock event in East Asia. Since 1999, the festival has been held at Naeba Ski Resort, high up in the mountains of Niigata, one of Japan’s most stunning displays of natural beauty. At first arrival, landing at Fuji Rock is like discovering a musical haven in the wilderness; the view is unlike any other. Today, the festival has ballooned into a +100,000 person event, making it the largest musical festival in Japan, attracting world-renowned artists like Radiohead, Coldplay, and the Oasis. Fuji Rock 2013 is set to take place July 26-28, with regular tickets opening up June 15th. http://www.smash-uk.com/frf13/   3.) Exit: Novi Sad, Serbia – In 2000, three Serbia university students set out to provide high-energy entertainment to their countries youth while simultaneously bringing pertinent social topics to the forefront of their society. They chose 18th century fortress on the coast of the Danube, and ever since, a combination of its grass roots political beginnings, stunning backdrop, and star-studded lineup has solidified Exit’s...

Unique and Unusual Hostels

Traveling the world gets expensive. Hostels can help cut back some of that cost and lets you meet people and experience things that you likely wouldn’t see if you took the more conventional vacation approach. But a cheap hostel doesn’t have to be a dingy room you share with everybody else in the country. To get all of the benefits of hostel hopping while still experiencing quality digs, check out these truly unique hostels.   1. Jumbo Stay, Stockholm, Sweden   If you’re in the middle of a long tour around the globe, climbing into a plane to spend the night is probably the last thing that you want to do. But this hostel will change your mind. This Boeing 747-200 Jumbo Jet has been converted into 26 rooms that give your plenty of room to stretch out and great views. The luxury suite up in the cockpit has an ensuite bathroom and the best view of all the planes coming and going out of Arlanda Airport, which is just a ten minute walk away. All of the rooms come with flat screen TVs and Wi-Fi. The on-board big screen displays all the arrivals and departures at the airport, perfect if you’re catching a flight the next day. For more information, check out this site:      2. Anak Ranch, Mongolia, Mongolia As a world traveler, you should appreciate the nomadic lifestyle of the Mongolian tribes who lived in yurts or gers. And at Anak Ranch, you can imitate them. You’ll find yourself in the middle of the Mongolian wilderness, which is desolate and yet somehow beautiful. The price of a room includes a tour by horseback, so mount up and see the country the way it was meant to be seen. Then head back for the night and enjoy some of the authentic, homegrown food they’ll serve up to you. And while your yurt was designed to break down and move pretty easily, it’s more than sturdy enough to withstand anything nature throws at it while you get a good night’s sleep to prep for tomorrow’s adventure.  For more information, check out this site:    3. Zhangzhou Wei Qun Lou Inn, Zhangzhou, China  Once you get up into the mountains of China, everything is worth seeing, and this hostel is no exception.

Top 5 Surf Spots

In this video by DOSE, Kelia Moniz and Monyca Byrne-Wikey, Roxy surfer girls, tell us their favorite places to surf.  Kelia and Monyca both started surfing as kids and the time they were 14 they were kicking ass in professional competitions!  Needless to say, they know the water!  So what’s on their list of Top 5 Surf Spots? Let’s take a look.   1.) First up is Waikiki.  Waikiki was Kelia’s first wave.   Beginner surfers can paddle out to a fun, easy break called Canoes.  Intermediate surfers can try Queens.  More experienced wave rides would have the best time at Populars.    2.) Next up is Hamoa Beach on Maui.  Monyca grew up surfing Hamoa’s barrels as a young surfer girl.  While Hamoa is a sick break, it’s also mighty powerful and exposed to rips so it’s best for experienced surfers only!   3.)  Kelia and Monyca both love Cold Springs in the Mentawais Islands of Indonesia.  Cold Springs (also called Roxies) is total warm-water paradise! You have to take a boat to get out there, but it’s worth it!    4.) Lower Trestles, fourth on Kelia and Monyca’s list, is a great spot! You can go there to surf, barbecue, hang, surf again, and leave.  There are always a lot of people in the water at Trestles, but there are also plenty of waves to go around.  So don’t sweat the crowds!   5.) Last on their list is La Bamba, in Salina Cruz, Mexico.  La Bamba is a nice, easy break with rides that seem to last forever.  The beach is surrounded by craggy peaks and green carpeted mountains.  Long rides with epic visuals? Sold!   This globe is littered with tons of incredible surf spots.  But, from the girls who know, these breaks you don’t want to miss!  Want to see more? Here is a great collection of sizzzlin surf action. [Show...

Top 10 Spring Breaks

  Spring Break is still the favorite time of year for college and high school students across the country. Picking a place to go can sometimes be daunting—flights, hotels, friends, who can make it, are all decisions to think about at a time when the last thing you want to do is think more.  Naturally, everyone wants to go to the cool spot, to have that epic week that they can look back on, for the rest of their lives. Here at Party Around the World, we get that, so we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 places to go for spring break this year! While some awesome beach spots did make the list, Spring Break according to Business Insider has shifted over the last few years to include lower budget (less airfare) and closer trips. While not the typical bikini jaunts we are used to seeing, this top cities still offer sunny destinations, great nightlife and some awesome festivals that will still make for a fun trip 1. Las Vegas, Nevada —where a version of Spring Break lasts throughout the summer. Vegas’ reputation precedes her, so if you want a fun Spring Break location without leaving the country, head to Vegas, Baby! It’s 24/7. You’ve got non stop fun, day and night. While the sun is up, tan and rage at the pool parties and at night endless options of bars and clubs to stroll.  Knock out some of those hangovers with the endless, bottomless brunches and all you can eat buffets along with many other fine dining spots to choose from. For ladies the shopping is world class too. A girls’ got to look good on the dance floor. The casinos are almost an afterthought but if you’re feelin lucky, why not drop some coin down?  You may not only came back with some fine memories, but some winnings as well. 2. Panama City, Florida—Still one of the top Spring Break cities in the world, Panama City is full of wild parties and awesome fun. If you aren’t comfortable leaving the country for Spring Break, then Panama City should be a no brainer. Head down and join the sexy men and women for the parties, the beaches, the sunsets, and the beautiful flora and fauna. 3. New Orleans, Louisiana—New Orleans is famous for Mardi Gras, but that doesn’t mean you can’t check out the incredible city for Spring Break. In fact, we encourage partaking in the Cajun and Creole cuisine, shopping at great vintage shops, and partying your night away. New Orleans is one of America’s great cities, so keep her in mind when planning Spring Break. 4. Hawaii—America does have...
