There is nothing as fun as an all-girls trip! What happens when 4 girls, three of whom had never met each other before, decide to go on a beach vacation to Thailand? A fabulous trip ensues! Imagine crazy night outs, never-ending shopping trips, brunches discussing love, life, careers and crazy near death experiences! Married, single or in a relationship, all women deserve a no-pressure, free-to-do-as-you-please vacation sans men and families every once in a while.
A beach vacation in Thailand is incomplete without some island hopping. The clear water, larger-than-life limestone cliffs and rock formations and soft white sand beaches will make you want to sit there all day long. From island hopping in Krabi and Patong to relaxing at the beach in Phi Phi Islands, we managed to visit almost all the islands on our list.
The friends you travel with are some of the greatest friends you will ever have! Discovering new places, conquering fears and sharing incredible experiences together makes every moment matter even more. From losing our way in Railay Island to almost drowning to scuba diving and snorkelling for the very first time, we definitely had the experience of a lifetime!
I didn't think I could ever go scuba diving. But when you travel with the craziest bunch of girls, they make you believe you can do crazy things like go scuba diving without knowing how to swim. The minute I put on the diving suit, all my excitement to dive flew out of the window. To top it all, it took the diving master literally 2 minutes to show us some hand signals when I was expecting training for at least an hour. Between three of us (one chickened out), we had two instructors to hold our hands through it. I was so scared that I couldn't remember any of the hand signals other than 'okay', so every time I wanted to come up for air, I was flapping my hands and legs all over the place until the instructor helped me up. But the few rare moments I let myself enjoy the underwater world of Nemos and colourful coral made up for the fear of dying of a heart attack underwater. I even stood on the seabed for a while!
Travelling with your girlfriends will either make you want to pull each other's hair off or bring you closer to each other. So when you find the people you enjoy travelling with, hold them close. I went to Thailand with one friend and two strangers and came back with my travel squad. Someone very rightly said the best bonds are formed while travelling.

Food holds different meanings for different people. There are some that will travel to a new place just to try the local cuisine and there are those who will eat everything, and I mean everything edible or not, at least once in their life. We all have that one friend who won't let you touch the food no matter how hungry you are without taking a photo for Instagram and then there are those who live on salads. Foodies are everywhere, and it would be unfair to flock them all under the same category. So let us introduce you to the 10 types of foodies you definitely know. How many you can spot in your own circle?
