Are you party-mad and seeking a memorable clubbing holiday without the sky-high prices of well-trodden destinations such as Ibiza? Places like Ibiza and Las Vegas are well-known as THE destinations for a holiday of non-stop partying, but with such an esteemed reputation among partygoers comes steep prices that can leave your bank account looking decidedly empty. Don't fret though! You can find more economical options that allow you to party til dawn and won't leave your pockets emptier than a banker's heart. Here are some of the best budget alternatives:
- Ios, Greece This tiny island, part of the Cyclades Islands in southern Greece, packs a real punch as a clubbing destination. The bars and clubs are all concentrated in one area, which can make for a perfect night of club-hopping. As soon as you have had your fill of one place, you can walk a few metres to find a completely different vibe. Most clubs stay open all night and are very reasonably priced compared to typical entry fees in Ibiza. To top it all off, Ios has some of the best beaches in Europe, with pristine white sand; it's perfect for a lazy day after a hard night on the tiles.
- Prague, Czech Republic Regarded as one of the world's most charming and beautiful cities, Prague is also a fine choice for those seeking after-hours adventures. Spend your days casually strolling around its medieval centre, part of the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List, and you'll have plenty of energy left for the vibrant and extremely cheap nightlife! Czech beer is among the tastiest and cheapest in the world, and Prague has a mind-boggling number of options for an all-night rave. As a clubbing destination, Prague is hard to beat in terms of choice and affordability. Just be wary if you go during their winter; temperatures are usually around five degrees Celsius. You won't feel the cold so much during a crazy night of partying, but packing a couple of heavy coats is a sensible decision.
- Bangkok, Thailand Cheap flights are widely available to this southeast Asian metropolis, which is famous for its wild nightlife. A large bottle of beer will set you back around $2, and entry to some of its hippest clubs costs a measly $5. Hit up the Sukhumvit area for some of the more high-class establishments, or if partying all night with backpackers from all corners of the globe is more your cup of tea, then be sure to pay a visit to Khao San Road. Bangkok nightlife has something for everyone seeking out a wild clubbing experience on a budget, and it truly is a city that never seems to sleep.
