Weddings / Bachelor/ette Parties

Whether you call it a bachelor party, a stag do or just a last hurrah, this is one of the nights of your life you will never forget (though you might forget some parts if your groomsmen have anything to say about it).

 

Montreal is perfect for revelry and there are a whole host of options available to your group in one of Canada’s most famous party towns.

 

If you can manage to get a ticket, a great way to kick off the evening is to watch one of the NHL’s finest teams, the Montreal Canadians. Don’t hold back and cheer along; these fans are some of the most passionate and verbal in all of sports.

 

You are going to need a full stomach to last the distance, so a hearty meal is surely in the cards before you go out on the tear. Joe Beef serves up great steak and seafood and the friendly atmosphere means you may end up ordering an extra bottle (or half a dozen) of Bordeaux to wash down the meat, but you are close to the historic Atwater market so you won’t have to worry about taxis.

 

If you arrive in late June, the Montreal Jazz Festival will be in full swing and you probably couldn’t avoid it if you tried, but why would you want to?. If something a little more adult is in order, a trip to one of the many “Canadian ballets” may take your fancy and why not? It’s not everyday you get married, so whether or not you even tell your bride to be about it she will surely understand. Club Downtown is a favorite with the locals and visitors alike and Pink Paradise is only 15 minutes from the airport on the north shore of downtown Montreal.

 

When it comes to finally laying your head, the Novotel on Mountain comes highly recommended right in the heart of the city, just yards from the Bell Centre. This place is ideally situated and you will not be the first bachelor party to stay for the weekend.

 

So get your passport, change some cash and hold on tight for a weekend of fun-filled debauchery in Montreal.

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
