Bodrum, Turkey No longer a last-minute choice for weekend getaways, Turkey has been gaining popularity as a stag do destination, and Bodrum is the top of the list for many. This seaside town on the Aegean coast has become the undisputed tourism capital of Turkey, offering a Mediterranean climate and opportunities for lots of water activities. Get a group together and try your hand at windsurfing. The beaches in the area are ideal for beginners and all the equipment is available for rent. For the less adventurous, hop on one of the many boat tours that take you around the harbour, the marina, and out to some isolated beaches for swimming and snorkelling. Rent a motorbike to visit the mud baths, where you can romp around getting as dirty as you'd like. Clean off in time to experience the vibrant nightlife, visiting many of the popular clubs - including the outdoor club Halikarnas and the more sophisticated Club X.
Kuta, Bali Indonesia might seem a little far for a stag do, but once you realize just how spectacular the location is there will be no regrets. Kuta is the best known tourist destination in Bali, and for good reason. Five kilometers of beach follow the coastline, and offer you and your friends a chance to try surfing in one of the best locations in the world. Visit the surf school located in the Hard Rock Hotel or just ask one of the resident beach bums for advice. Don't bother with a car on your visit - rent a scooter for a small fee and find one with a surfboard hanger for extra convenience. If you've already had one too many drinks, hop on the back of a local's scooter for a nominal fee and leave the driving to someone else. Once the sun goes down the real party starts, with beach bars and clubs, giving the island its party-hard reputation.
Las Vegas, Nevada No list would be complete without mention of the granddaddy of all stag do destinations: Las Vegas. This is the real city that never sleeps. Feel like high rollers at the blackjack table, even if just for a night. Visit neon-lit casinos along the strip for gambling, and drown your sorrows after losing with free drinks there as well. World-class restaurants are found in the hotels along the strip like the Wynn, Caesar's Palace, and Harrah's. Take in a show after dinner or visit some of the world's most famous clubs: TAO, LAX, and Coyote Ugly. If you manage to wake up the next day, relax by the pool and soak up the rays - and maybe one drink at the poolside bar as a hair of the dog hangover cure.
Munich, Germany If you get the timing right, visit Munich for the annual Oktoberfest for an unforgettable stag do. This sixteen day festival of beer is an annual event that boasts almost 7 million attendees each year. Be there for the traditional keg tapping on the first day, and drink up as much Bavarian beer in litre steins as you can. Don't worry about them running out - last year over 7 million litres of beer were consumed and there was plenty left over. Visit some of the larger tents, or seek out your home country's tent and kick back with friends.
