Weird Places People Go On Holiday


#21

Mallorca (3-8 March 2018)?


#22

My mates dad is currently on a holiday to Antarctica. Looks amazing but definitely a weird place.


#23

Got a stag do in Benalmadena this year :grimacing:


#24

My colleague did that and came back with loads of pictures of him vibing with penguins. He slept out on the ice one night.


#25

Dubai, I would quite like to go for a couple of days to have a mooch around, look at the infrastructure and nice buildings and that. Seems quite an interesting place/concept to look at, even if it is a bit weird.

Las Vegas just seems awful though. Everything about it, the people who go there, all of it awful.


#26

There is no concept of time there whatsoever because nothing closes or shuts down and the casinos / restaurants / anywhere have no natural light. I was once drunk there and went to bed thinking it was 5am, when it was in fact 5pm. I couldn’t wait to get out of there.


#27

Anywhere that’s just a big old megaplaza slapped in the middle of a desert


#28

Oh, Dubai, yeah.


#29

Pontins

Went on a resort holiday to Lanzarote as a big family holiday that my GF’s parents arranged a couple of years ago. This is pretty much the last thing I would generally choose to do for a holiday, one of the big selling points of the resort was that it did an English breakfast :rofl: I was well cynical about it, but it turned out to be pretty good fun in the end.


#31

Rides are fun though.


#32

A mate went in July just gone to see a mate who works there. Decided to go for a stroll, got a bit lost and seriously thought the heat might kill him. Had to take refuge in a multi-storey carpark and telephone for help.


#33

Came here to post Dubai


#34

Yeah, and the Matka Canyon


#35

Obvs depends on the individual resort, but I think a reasonable holiday at one sometimes is alright. Wouldn’t want to do it for every holiday though.


#36

Las Vegas is great fun for about 12 hours and then unrelentingly bleak from then on. Can probably stretch that out to 36 hours if you have a bottomless bank account. I enjoyed the novelty of staying in a hotel shaped like a pyramid and getting free drinks for looking like I was gambling


#37

another vote for Dubai cool water. Been to the airpoirt loads of times, never once thought to myself I would ever want to venture outside for leisure reasons.


#38

Yeah I’ve heard that free drinks thing being pretty vital


#39

Switzerland

Reckon I would hate it, but would like a look at the Burj Khalifa, and to be able to be snotty about the place with some actual knowledge.

That said, a colleague is going next week, and whilst I am against it, I look outside at the meh weather and the thought of sitting by any pool in the sun doesn’t feel disastrous.
