Summer vacation is not complete without a bonding trip with your beloved girlfriends. The thought of spending the afternoon chilling by the seaside or having a shopping spree at malls together with our friends just makes us giddy. So pack up your coordinated OOTDs and get ready to visit these fab destinations.
Immortalised by Katy Perry's song, the Californian lifestyle is something that we've all dreamed to live even for just a few days. Once you land on the West Coast, the first order of business is to rent a car so you and your girlfriends can easily breeze through your tour of this sunny state. Go shopping at Rodeo drive, get that glorious tan at the San Diego beach, cross off seeing the Golden Gate Bridge in your bucket list and celebrate with some fine wine at Napa. You and your girlfriends will definitely have the best road trip ever!
There's more to do in Mexico aside from indulging in tasty tacos and authentic margarita. Bask in the sun, sand and sea of Mexico's finest beaches in Cancun, Tulum or Cabo and be in awe of their natural, quiet allure. After swimming and sunbathing, take a trip down history lane and visit the stunning arc of Cabo San Lucas’ El Arco along a beautiful beach. Indulge in the great, natural beauty of Mexico's landscapes.
If shopping and food trip is your squad's priority, then Hong Kong is the perfect place to go. In every corner, you'll find unique and delicious street food that you shouldn't miss, such as egg waffles, dimsums and taro cakes. Once your tummy is satisfied, you're ready to brave the crowded streets of Mongkok for the best beauty, fashion and gadget bargains. You'll find authentic luxury brands that are sold for much lower prices than what you'd pay for at home. Lastly, enjoy a night overlooking Hong Kong at the Victoria Peak. The photogenic grandeur of Hong Kong will give plenty of great photo opportunities for that ultimate squad pic.
If you and your girlfriends prefer a mellow vacay to retreat from the everyday bustling scene, you can head over to Bali for some peace and quiet time. You can even opt to have a yoga retreat to revitalise your mind and body's energy. To have the full Bali experience, take a hike and visit the sacred temples like the iconic Tanah lot — a temple located at top of a huge rock. At the end of your trip, you'll go back to the city feeling refreshed and dreaming of going back to Bali once again.
Milan is the ultimate destination for a group of fashionista girlfriends. Take a stroll and shop at one of the world's oldest and most prestigious shopping malls, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. At this four-story double arcade shopping mall, you'll find familiar fashion houses like Prada and Gucci. When you're done with your shopping, explore the foundation of art and visit the works of Leonardo da Vinci, most specially The Last Supper at the Santa Maria delle Grazie church. Lastly, don't forget to try what Italy is known for — pasta, pizza and gelato!
If you and your girlfriends are dreaming of a winter wonderland kind of vacation, the picturesque view of the Swiss Alps should be on top of your list. Your squad will have loads of fun learning how to ski, exploring the cute local shops and sharing a nice hot cocoa while enjoying the breathtaking view of the snowy mountains. Go through all the valleys and peaks together in the Swiss Alps and don't forget to take snaps of your favourite moments.
