Top 9 Destinations for Girlfriend Getaways07 Aug 2014


To travel with your significant other, your kids, and the rest of your family may be fun and memorable but sometimes, a woman needs to go on a break and enjoy a stress-free vacation with girlfriends.

Such trips would mean no lovers, no kids, and no work. It’s just you and your friends on a special women-only tour. Remember the time when you were young during weekend sleepovers? You can still do that but in a more mature and stylish way.

Why not travel in somewhere far where culture is different? A new experience in a new place is best enjoyed with your BFFs.

We’ve listed some of our top recommendations for women-only tours you and your girlfriends will enjoy:

  1. SOUTH AFRICA (African Beauty & The Beasts)A trip to South Africa for 11 days will let you experience the luxurious safari lodge, learn the history and local culture, see the picturesque countryside, and appreciate Cape Town. Enjoy the beaches, the penguins, some wine tasting, and a lot of shopping.
  2. ALSACE, FRANCE (The Alsatian Wine Route)Any town in France is a nice place to visit but the Alsatian Wine Route is for those who enjoy a good wine.

  3. BELLE PROVENCE, FRANCE (France’s Southern Jewel)What is it about France that is so special?
