Chances are most of you having seen the Bollywood flick ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ -you’d agree with me that it gave us some major travel goals. The “Mancation” of three friends was the ultimate vacay every man ever dreamt of having.
Or the Hollywood flick ‘The Hangover’ – a blowout Sin City trip which had many a bachelor planning a similar bash with his groomsmen.
Enough of the woman traveller blog posts. Let me give the men their due here with a post on Mancations .
Well what can I say ; sometimes dudes just want to be with themselves. And mancations provide the perfect opportunity for men to get together and bond with guys from work or old friends from college. It could be a father son vacation, a bachelor party, or even a millennial man wanting to trade tips and learn skills from his older counterparts.
Whatever the reason ‘Mancation’ one of the latest buzzwords in the travel industry, is a spin-off on the girlfriends’ getaway marketing phenomenon.
Although golf outings, sports events and fishing trips are the mainstays of male bonding, high-velocity adventures, spa treatments or just laid back chilling vacays is a fun way for men to disconnect and “allow guys to be guys.”
And when you talk about guy trips there is one top most destination that has the power to drive all the guys moony. Yup you guessed it right –Thailand. I don’t think I need to say anything more here.

Have a wild night of music at Sunburn, getting the party mode on, and swimming in the sea of blood pumping music and vibe, Goa has always been a perennial favourite of the boys
If women can have their ladies only – getaway, men should be able to do the same. Biking trips, Pub hopping, Brewery tours, Bungee jumping, White water River rafting, Sky diving, Golfing, there are unlimited options for the men out there. They can do whatever pleases them.
But hey, who am I to give any advice. If your man is not too keen on taking off with his buddies maybe you should do this –give them a couple of chilled beers, a lounge chair and leave them alone. That should be their ultimate “mancation”
