What better place to kick off your girls-only getaway than amidst the happiest folks in the world? Explore the quaint waterfront with your BFFs or cosy up with the Danish concept of Hygge. Either way, you’ll come back a changed person.
Auckland, New Zealand
The City of Sails has just what your troop needs to kick back and relax. The sun, the sand, the surf and sublime views as far as the eye can see: Auckland knows exactly how to play the perfect host.
